Good Value for Money”
We stayed here for 2 nights and it's actually one of the best hostels and cheapest bookings we've had. This place has a cool ambience, our room was so good and fresh to look at. The receptionist and staff were nice too! I love everything about Lub d. The entire stay was totally great!
It was alright”
The room I got to stay in was alright, looked good. But we realised that some rooms have mirrors, some don’t, some has fridge, some don’t, some has kettles, some don’t. It was pretty inconsistent and frustrating for us. Nevertheless, it’s very close to all the main attractions. Pretty dodgy area however, just walk in groups always. If you have additional amount to spare, best book an accommodation elsewhere. In fact, there are cheaper and nicer ones around there.
Central location, spacious room, helpful staff”
I enjoyed the view of a temple from my room and the nearby restaurants and cafes. Drawback is the street noise and navigating chaotic street in front of Rachana. Staff was friendly in assisting me with ongoing journey.
Nice room, more like a hotel than hostel”
We only stayed for on night but the place was more like a hotel than a hostel! The room was spacious enough with a really comfy bed and great aircon. Location is good and staff were really helpful. Would definitely recommend.
Steep Staircase & a Rooftop Patio”
PROS: - Rooftop bar! (No food served, but a rad place to chill in the evening & have a few beers) - Clean and big room! - Location (distance to the river & palace) - Lots of option in the area for restaurants, pubs & cafes - Staff helpful when booking tours CONS: - Sketchy & very steep staircase (exercise caution when going either way) - Noisy! Our room was on the top floor and we still heard everything from the street - No safe or lockbox in the room - Paid in full via Agoda, but was still charged a credit card fee when we checked in...not sure what that was about... All in all, one of our preferred hostels during our time in SE Asia so far! (If you can get the "King" room on the top floor corner, we recommend it)
Eventhough the name suggested a hostel but they provide private room and it was comfortable for 1 night stay. This is the cheapest option without giving out comfortability and privacy in Phnom Penh. They also provide shared rooms. The rooftops are amazing. Perfect for louging. The staffs are very friendly and helpful.
The hostel is good. The facilities, the value for the money , and location. Only thing I am disappointed with is that they never replied to my email prior to my arrival. I was asking them if they could pick me up at the terminal from HCM. They can assist you with booking your bus to Siem Reap conveniently though, including tours to S-21 and the killing fields. The streets around it is where most of the restaurants are and near the palace and museum. Just be mindful of the time that they lock the main door. we go locked out, good thing the receptionist that night was a light sleeper.
The room is spacious. Everything was great with the price paid. The hostel stay is definitely value for money. The location was good. There are some eatery and convenience store nearby the hostel. Only problem is with the slow drainage in bathroom which needs to be fixed.
a good place to stay in phnom penh! ”
1. Room is clean and spacious for 2 person 2. The bed is big and comfortable to sleep on 3. Location is strategic. Walking distance to most of attraction. 4. Safe surroundings (not at red light area and not dim). 5. Delicious food can be found nearby (eg pizza, next door coffee etc). 6. Staff is friendly. 7. Rooftop bar is a nice place to chill out and take photos However, 1. The room's light is a bit dim 2. The aircond take time to cool the room
The rooms do not look anything like the photos. Very young staff “manage” the rooms and appear to do the bare minimum. Can not understand how people have given this place great reviews!!! 0 stars for the location, in an extremely unsavoury area of Phnom Penh (majority 60+ year old men with females 1/3 to 1/4 of their age).
Helpful staff and excellent location”
They have excellent location which is approximate 10-15 minutes walk to the royal palace and also riverside. There are many restaurants and cafes around and they serves good food too with an affordable price. My room is clean and big, the air condition is good, not too hot and not too cold. The water heater is ok too. The staffs are very friendly and they provides useful information too. They can understand and speak English so there's no problem to communicate with them. The tuk tuk driver whom serves this hostel is friendly and honest. The only problem is the toilet was clogged everytime after shower, it's like a flood inside the toilet. Moreover, the water tap was not functioning properly as the water keeps spilling out from the basin which causes the toiletries I put beside the basin get wet.
Great ! ”
The hotel free upgraded us to a quadruple room ! The location is really convenience as most the tourist attractions (royale palace, national museum, central market etc) were just within walking distance.
Pretty good for the price”
Good location 5 minutes from the royal palace and other tourist attractions. Small but did the job just fine. Room was clean. Trying really hard to be very hipster but just not quite there. Overall however is really nice and I would definitely recommend them for a couple of night stay.
Rooftop bar is lovely nice place to chill. One day they had a TV up there next day they didnt. But strange and they couldn't explain why. Very close to palace and national museum. Room clean. Shower not great
Super clean and comfortable, our stay at Rachana was exactly as we expected. A great location handy to the Palace, riverside restaurants and plenty of tuk-tuks with a roof-top bar on-site. Would definitely recommend as great value for money.
Nice location, need to sort out the cats”
Had a good time here. Some great restaurants and bars nearby. Wish they would sort out the supermarket owner who has the cats on the hotel stairway. They really smell sadly. The people are very friendly. When I arrived they did not have my room available. Ended up in a room with no windows. Next day moved to the room I booked. The bed was missing the head board. Ended up staying an extra two nights.
Nice location, friendly staff,great service”
The location is near to all tourist spot. All are in walking distance for me. The staffs are very helpful and they help us a lot during our stay. Our room is clean and nice with a view overlooking the temple and junction. Will stay here again if I am here next time.
Great location and hostel”
This was an amazing hostel located near to the river which was a nice location to explore. The beds were comfortable and the staff were very friendly. They have a roof top bar which was awesome. Only problem was that there was a lot of noise. But t didn't stop me from enjoying my time here.
Excellent value for money, great location and friendly staff!”
My husband and I stayed here for three nights and it was such a great stay. The first night was booked with Agoda. Then, we traveled to Siem Reap. After that, we go back to Phnom Penh and it happens that I don't have any bookings. We checked Rachana and the receptionist gave us two different rooms for two nights that suit our budget. Thank you! We would love to come back!
Dear Madam, Thanks for your valuable time reviewing our property. We are really happy to hear from you again. Thanks for staying with us. Regard, Sopheak
Phnom Penh is basically a really dusty city, so having a clean hostel in the middle of dirty town is the best thing that you need. Rachana is really a good place for low budget travellers like backpackers like us, and the location is good as well with $1-2 you can visit most of places in city. At night it might be noisy a bit.
