      Fantastic stay and wonderful staff!!”
      I rarely leave written reviews but I feel like their rating is a bit unfair... I had such a plaisant stay at Silver Dolphin. I stayed there five years ago and decided to come back to that same guesthouse. It has been completely renovated. In the end, I extended my stay and stayed there five nights. From what I’ve seen, the guesthouse is cleaned daily and even several times a day. The dorms are simple but comfortable. Lockers are small but plenty of space under the bed for backpacks and luggage. No curtains. At least, three showers and toilets, simple but clean. The common area is lovely and great for meeting people. There is a balcony at the top for sunset viewing. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. Possibility to rent bicycles and motorbikes. For the price I paid I could have stayed there a month!!

      I’m not sure why the reviews here are so mixed. The room I had was basic but comfortable. Bathrooms are also basic, but functional and I found them clean. All the staff are wonderful, very friendly. I’m traveling alone and mentioned that I wanted to do a kayaking dolphin tour but didn’t want to go alone, and staff rounded up all guests together for us to have a nice group. The half day kayak tour was excellent: absolutely beautiful, a good workout, and we saw dolphins!

      Great little cheap and clean guest house. Basic rooms , some with more natural light than others but all seem quite airy. Very helpful and friendly woman behind the front desk, seems able to organise most things and if she can't, will find someone who can. great value for money.

      Filth, complete filth.”
      For the price we paid I knew we would be staying in a pretty bare bones place but this was pretty bad. The toilet was black and there was no toilet seat at all. not that you would want to use it. bed springs poked out of the disgusting mattress. no housekeeping during our stay. You can find better.

      Disgusting ”
      We booked a private room which was absolutely disgusting. The room is very old and the mattress is so thin you can feel the wood underneath. Everything was dusty and unclean. The toilet looked like it had never been cleaned and the seat and lid had horrible marks all over them. The staff were ok but not great at English and could have been more attentive. Overall this hostel is certainly not worth the money it charges!

      Pleasant place to stay with good river views ”
      The room was nice and came with paper, water, soap etc. Beds were alright although my friends one had extreme springs, mine had a thick blanket underneath but hers did not. Views are good, chilled atmosphere and close to markets and town area. They hire out he kayaks next door which were fine and they were friendly and easy enough to sort out but don't seem to be used very much. When organising the bus trip from Kratie to Mondulkiri we requested abig bus but it was more a minivan and seemed to be the local bus stoppi g often and cramming us in like sardines. We were not at all told this but English was limited to only one member of staff who wasn't always available. Overall though a good ish stay

      Great, no complaints! ”
      Basic accommodation but for the price, you shouldn't expect luxury! I booked a double room with an ensuite, it was clean and the bed was pretty big. The only downside was a drip in the bathroom but I didn't raise this so I can't (and won't) moan about it! There's also a school next door so request the other side of the building if you like a lie in! The accommodation is perfectly located for the bus station (300m walk so no need for a tuk tuk) and they will sort out onward bus tickets and give advice on seeing the dolphins which by the way, are amazing! If I was returning to this area I would definitely stay in the Silver Dolphin again.

      Great little hostel”
      This is a great hostel to meet people as a solo traveller even in low season. Kina is the life and soul of this place and she will do anything for any of the guests, any time. The dorms are pretty basic, but super cheap. And the private bedrooms are fab for the price! I stayed in both over a three days with a stay in the island of Koh Trong in between. Would definitely recommend.

      The guests and staff were absolutely fantastic and helpful, especially the owners. The location of the guesthouse and the overall comfortable feel is definitely a plus.
      Great for any solo or couple travellers who do not mind a little bit of music being played early in the morning at the bar. Great for meeting a lot of people, and the owners will help you with many things. Ended up spending almost 5 full days here, would highly recommend for any budget travellers.

      Friendly and helpful staff, good food at their attached restaurant
      The staff was great and super friendly. The mattress was the worst I've encountered in SE Asia, but they got us a new one that was better, not great, but liveable. There were quite a few bugs crawling around but they were working on it when we left. They have a rooftop deck and bar that is quite decent although also swarmed by flying insects.

      I arrived there with 3 other backpackers who followed me cuz not made any reservation. The staff staff showed me the first room and it was horrible with 5 big bed bugs under the pillow. The second room they offered me didn't have a toilet and finally offered me a small room with a small window. It was unbearable but can't complain. They offered many tour services whose rates are a bit pricy. The food was excellent.

      Nothing, my friend and I bought a bus ticket from guesthouse to loas, they arrange the worst minivan I have never seen before(a lot of scrupture inside the van and I need to squeeze myself in the very tiny space), and late pick us up around 50 mins, that cause us miss our bus!! ! We supposed to reach 4000 islands at 2pm but ended up with 8pm(because only have 2bus that was 9am and 3pm, we waited at a very remote area for 6 hrs!! And we went to tourism information during the 6 hrs waiting time and they said the ticket was not official they will investigate it ). In the ticket we bought the staff from the guest house said we would have a free pick up boat from the port to island, and we paid for that, but we asked for pay for the boat fares again in the port!

They helped us make an arrangement to see dolphins in the morning. It was fabulous experience. We recommend it highly and will be back when we get back to the area again.
