Me and my girlfriend were teaching in a local village and at the weekend we came and stayed here to chill out. We stayed 3 weeks in a row and the rooms are perfect, clean and new. The food is really good and good value. The pool is great especially as it gets very hot in siem reap. But the best thing was the staff they were amazing so kind and helpful couldn't do enough to help. We will defiantly stay again when in siem reap. One member of staff thanked us for helping the people of Cambodia while we were teaching the children which was amazing to hear. Thank you again pool party hostel Jamie and tamzin
Dear Jamie and Tamzin, Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! It is truly amazing the way you payed forward to the local communities here and it was a pleasure having you. Please do come back to Pool Party Hostel when in Siem Reap. We'd love that! Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Sincerely, Lucky (Hostel Manager)
Just superb! Must stay in Siam Reap!”
The staff and owner is very nice people to talk to and hang around! Like most people, we read reviews before we make booking..and the experience staying in Pool Party Hostel is 5 star! The pool and room is clean. We met alot of overseas backpackers there and had a great time sharing our stories. The only cons is the location is slightly far from city center but not a big deal for us as it's easy to get a tuk tuk. Food is good and priced reasonable and most of time we just eat there. Must do: Join the Pub Crawl! It's every Monday, Wednesday & Friday. That's a fun event to get to know new friends from all over the world! Makes our trip extra fun than just solely going to see Angkor Wat and other temples in Siam Reap!
Dear Ng, Thank you so much for your positive feedback. It is great to know that you enjoyed your stay with us! Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Sincerely, Lucky (Hostel Manager)
easily most enjoyable hostel I stayed at”
Pool Party hostel offers a family-style stay, with all facilities like laundry, rentals, tours etc. Rooms are fresh and clean, and the hostel offers social common areas, hammocks, and refreshing pool, as well as a restaurant with great and affordable food. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff and family however is what sets this hostel apart. If you stay in Siem Reap, stay at Pool Party Hostel! I cannot recommend it enough!
Dear Dennis, Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. We are very happy to hear that you felt welcome and enjoyed your stay with us! Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Sincerely, Lucky (Hostel Manager)
Home away from home. Cool vibe and a place to meet the world. Yes, you gotta meet fellow travellers.”
When our group decided to celebrate a friend's birthday in Siem Reap, we chose this place and didn't disappoint. We love the cool vibe and the Management was helpful during our stay. Yeah, even provided empty boxes and packaging tape for our extra luggage (after shopping!) and a birthday candle for their fluffy pancake as our birthday cake. Pretty sweet! Anyway, a family business with owners so hands on making sure that their guests' needs are being met. Big breakfast for $4 was good with coffee and juice. It's a pool party hostel but giving guests their quiet time to rest by midnight. No more music but anyone can stay for a night chill or even for a good swim. Exceeded our expectations, unless of course if you are looking for a 5-star luxury for the amount you paid. Will I ever stay here again? Definitely!
A wonderful hostel with travelers atmosphere!”
This hostel helped me have the best week of my travels so far. What a wonderful place full of great people in a historic city. I picked the hostel because it had a pool which I thought would be a welcome sight after trips to the Angkor temples and it did not disappoint. The pool is actually very nicely designed and the outside lounge area with the restaurant is a perfect place to relax and meet other travelers. During my 6 days of staying here I made a number of friends who joined me on my adventures around Siem Reap. The staff was so happy and friendly the entire stay, making this feel like your home. The room was fine, a little crowded but then again I chose to stay in the large dorm. They provide unlimited towels and the is a large shared bathroom/shower area at the end of the hall. If you wish to stay in a private room they can accommodate that as well and that seemed wonderful from a friend I met as well. The location is about a 15 minute walk from the center of town, so it's easy to enjoy the markets and restaurants without the craziness. I definitely recommend staying here if you stop through.
Dear Tevis, Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. It is incredibly good to hear that you had such a great time with us! Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Sincerely, Lucky (Hostel Manager)

I don't usually stay in hostels but this place made our trip to siem Reap. Contrary to its name its not a crazy party scene, it is social but in a great was. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff are very helpful with everything. The reception team book everything for you and Oliver & Sophie are great social coordinators who make everyone feel welcome We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning

Your home away from home”
Of course the temples are a must see in Siem reap. But the staff at Pool Party Hostel will make you want to never leave, and keep you coming back again and again. ✌️🇰🇭✌ I truly feel like I now have a family in Cambodia and I can't wait to see them again.
Dear Evan, Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. Without a doubt, one of our main priorities at Pool Party Hostel is to make our guests feel welcome and part of the family. It is great to hear you that did and that you might even come back! Looking forward to seeing again. Take care, Lucky (Hostel Manager)
Place to be”
We had a splendid time in this hostel. The staff is the most welcoming and caring you'll ever get. They did everything they could to make us feel home. So well that we actually stay twice longer than planned. The restaurant and the pool are absolutely splendid and our room was big, cozy and clean. We couldn't ask for more. If we're going back to Siem Reap, we'll definitely stay there! Thanks again
Dear Gauthier, Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are very happy to hear that you felt welcome and enjoyed your stay with us! We do hope you come back to Siem Reap soon. Sincerely, Lucky (Hostel Manager)
Lovely relaxing place with great food!”
This hostel is lovely. Nice big rooms, good shower and very cheap. The staff is very friendly and help you with whatever they can. Lovely food and lots of choses at every time of the day, not pricey at all. Hostel has bikes for rent wich is nice to avoid tuktuk drivers in the center. Pool party hostel is not as the name says bur a very relaxed place with a very big pool. Good to chill after visiting the temples, Higly recommend!
Dear Lynn, Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so happy to know that you enjoyed your stay with us! Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Sincerely, Lucky (Hostel Manager)
Good environment, amazing pool!”
We really loved our stay in Pool Party Hostel. Good environment with some party, but not too much. The room was spacious and clean, with good bathroom. The pool was just amazing! Wifi connection was good and the staff was always very helpful. We could rent an ebike from sunrise to midnight for only 10 dollars. The restaurant offers cheap and decent meals from 7am to 10pm. They also provide a free tuk tuk to city center, to the night market area, which is very convenient. The only thing we did not like so much were the geckos that were everywhere and sometimes inside the room.
Dear Sara, Thank you so much for your feedback. We are very happy to hear that you had a pleasant experience with us. We apologize about the geckos but those little fellows are hard to keep away. We will work harder on that, though. Hope to have you back in the near future! Sincerely, Lucky (Hostel Manager)
This is the place to be in Siem Reap! The staff there is just amazing and make everything possible! They want to be sure that you are having a good time and so did I. The location is really good: 10 min walks to the market. The food is really good! They have a pool so it was hard to leave the hotel. I slept in a dorm and the bed is big and not to hard. I would definitely recommend this place!
Dear Jessica, Thank you so much for your positive feedback. It is great to hear that you enjoyed staying at Pool Party Hostel! Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Sincerely, Lucky (Hostel Manager)
Best place to stay”
Everything about our stay was fantastic, in fact we went away for a week then came back it was that good. We walked in to the more lively areas each night (approx 10-15 mins) and got a tuctuc back for $1 so its not far away. The staff were great from the start and the family atmosphere really made us feel relaxed and welcomed. The name is pool party but it is a lot more chilled than that suggests, we often had the pool to ourselves or just another couple of guests which was really nice. The food was all at a really good price and we were never disappointed, with an extensive selection. If we wanted to use the fridge for our own things the staff allowed us to do that too which is more than you'd get in many other places. Adding our names and flag to the wall outside felt like we were contributing to a fun and multicultural collage. The rooms were great, laundry was meticulous, house keeping was on point, I could go on but essentially the main thing is that this accommodation was top class.
Dear Jessica, Thank you so much for your awesome feedback. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you added your names and flag to our walls! Hope you come back here soon. Sincerely, Lucky (Hostel Manager)
Awesome family run hostel with great pool after temple days”
We stayed 5 nights in pool party hostel and loved it. Staff is super friendly and helpful, dorms and private rooms are great and really clean and the pool is great - especially after long days in the Angkor temples... Walking distance to pub street and city center. We would def stay here again.
Dear Lena, Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Sincerely, Lucky (Hostel Manager)
Really Nice Stay”
It is a really nice place to enjoy the Area around Siem Reap. The recepcionist is very friendly and helps a lot. Especially if you ask about nice places to go or for other information. The only negative point I have are the bathrooms. They are clean but due to the fact that the showers are directly next to the toilets the soils is always wet and in general the bathroom is not as nice as the rest of the hotel (it is completely out of beton). But that's only a really small point and in total I must say that ithe is a perfect place to stay.
Dear Stephanie, Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Sincerely, Lucky (Hostel Manager)
Loved it; Atmosphere and Staff made it Perfect”
Overall, I loved the hostel. I would recommend and definitely stay there again. The beds are comfortable and the air con is good, especially for how inexpensive the hostel is. The staff here are so lovely. Seriously some of the sweetest and most helpful people I've met on my travels. The food is cheap for hostel food and it's tasty as well. Coffee = yum. If you want local Khmer food, there are plenty of restaurants and street food carts around. The pool area is the best part; everyone congregates throughout the day and evening. There is a pool bar literally in the pool that should be finished soon. There are also seats in the pool or hammocks in you wanna chill with a book. You can doodle or sign your name on the big wall, as well.
Dear Caroline, Thank you so much for your positive feedback. It is so good to hear such lovely things about your stay here. Take care and see you soon, hopefully. Sincerely, Lucky (Hostel Manager)
Good value for money. Location is a little away from the centre which may bother some people, but it's only a 15 min walk away and the hostel also offers a free tuk tuk service into the centre. Also booked a tuk tuk for the day to Angkor Wat for a very reasonable price ($15) compared to what we were offered elsewhere. The hostel was very quiet when we were there, but then again we did stay during low season. Staff are lovely and very helpful. The pool looks a little fun down (missing tiles) and not that clean and the room looked a little weathered - nothing a lick of paint wouldn't sort though. We had a problem with our drains, neither the sink or the shower would drain. However, when I asked for our room to be cleaned on the 6th day of us staying there, the drain issue was resolved!
Nice pool nice staff”
The staff are really nice, they are willing to help for everythings. Nice time in pool party hostel. The only one thing is the hostel not really close to night market or food to eat. But you can go by tuk tuk with USD $1-1.50 to pub street.
Dear Suet, Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Sincerely, Lucky (Hostel Manager)
Super clean hostel, amazing showers, comfy beds, and nowhere near a 'party' hostel as name implies ”
Extended my stay here twice. Comfy beds, quiet dorms, clean bathrooms. Great pool area. Super awesome and helpful staff and manager/owner. Music by pool is a decent level to still hold conversation without yelling. Social, but I wouldn't call it a party hostel like one thinks of.
A place like home”
As said, it's called party pool but the place remains quiet. Still, you will have good time around the pool, everything is made so that people can meet and talk to each other. Staff is friendly and helpful. You have a free ride to the center, which is basically 10min by foot. Try the harbour pub on the way, it's the best in town. This hostel is a must!
Dear Erwan, Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Sincerely, Lucky (Hostel Manager)
Super friendly staff!!!”
The staff here were what made our experience. It's run by a local family, and everyone up to the grandfather chipped in and did their part. They helped us with anything we needed: information, booking trips or buses, nothing was too much trouble. The name is misleading - this was a really peaceful, relaxing hostel situated about 10-15 mins walk our of the main town. The bar area served a great range of food options at really decent prices. The pool is lovely, great place to relax after seeing the temples. Highly recommend this hostel!!!
