I’m definitely coming back”

There are places you know you would only visit once in your lifetime not because you do not like it but because you know there are more other places to explore. Siem Reap is one place I will definitely come back to for another visit and a huge part of this want to return was my experience at the Siem Reap Chilled Backpacker. For what I paid for, I got more than just the optimum value for my money with a large de luxe room next to a balcony, a vibrant bar and pool area, and a diverse composition of guests from the world all over. Communication, too, was efficient. The manager emailed me about the details of my airport transfer. I wasn’t granted an early check-in and I liked the part that they’re straightforward about it. It helped me decide right away to slot in my schedule a visit to the national museum which was really close by so I could slay time while no room was still available for me upon my very early arrival. Overall, it was one fun and remarkable experience.

Awesome Stay”

‘Twas definitely worth our money and vacation time! We initially chose The Siem Reap Chilled Backpacker hostel for the free airport transfer, free pickup by local Angkor Temples Tour and free pickup by Giant Ibis Bus (Siem Reap to Bkk). But this laidback hostel gave us a bonus! It’s clean; the staff are warm and welcoming, too! Even the tuktuk drivers (we also booked their tuktuk grand tour) are extremely nice and friendly! I would definitely recommend this hostel to my friends!

The hotel is the best part of our stay in Siem Reap! ”

Can I give more stars to this hotel?? The staffs are all super friendly and helpful regardless of its affordable price. I think the hotel are the best part of our stay in Siem Reap! Even we had a little problem at first regarding the transportation from the airport they are able to solve it smoothly. Initially, we are a group of 6 and we booked 2 Family Deluxe Room for our 3 night stay in Siem Reap. But they might have a little misuderstanding that the management only send 1 tuktuk to pick us up. But its okay, it has been solved. We arrive early in the morning, (around 8am) so there are no vacant room ready for us but the staff are working on it nicely. In the mean time, they give us free welcoming drinks and kept us entertained. The rooms are just nice complete with towels, tv, mini fridge, aircond, bath tub, and comfortable clean bed. They are also mini pool and comfortable cafe where you can chill and hang with your friends. But location a bit far from Muslim Restaurant.

Value for money with all the basic amenities”

This place offers GREAT VALUE to all travelers. At such a price, it is definitely a bargain. Of course, you pay for what you get. All the basic amenities were available - a pool, a bar, air conditioned room. Location is a bit far from Pub Street, but can be easily solved with a US$2 tuk tuk ride. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Had some issues with our television and they got the maintenance crew the next day to fix it. Also the best part of our stay was the front desk where we could book our tours. Do note that if you're planning to go for a few tours on different days, get the 3 day Angkor pass! You'll need the pass for basically ALL the temples in Siem Reap. Also if you're planning to visit the Phare Circus (which you should), get it from the Front Desk. Prices are cheaper and they'll help you arrange a tuktuk, or else you wouldn't have transport back! Truth being told, if you're looking for luxury, this is not the place. But if you're just looking for a place to sleep for the night, this place is perfect.

A great place to stay”

The hotel is beautiful, and very comfortable. Our stay in Siem Reap has been quite long, so we have checked out several hotels. This is the cleanest and most comfortable pool I've seen around the city. I feel like the staff in the restaurant were a little inattentive, especially when they were playing on their Switch instead of keeping an eye on the customers. But the front desk staff and the housekeepers were always on point, very friendly, and eager to help out. It's very telling that, despite being off the beaten path, the hotel was always busy. Some of the other hotels we started at, that were much more visible or closer to central attractions were much emptier. Yet the location is not inconvenient, and we valued the quiet of being a little away from Pub Street.

They have tour package to Angkor Wat with good price so you don't have to worry about hiring tuk-tuk or got scammed by tuk-tuk driver. Definitely recomended!!

Great Location, Nice Room”

Despite the name, it did not feel like a backpacker hostel at all. We were pleasantly surprised by how nice our private room was for such a low price. The bed was very comfortable and A/C was strong. The wardrobe was large and came with a few hangers, which we appreciated. There was a mini-fridge, though I didn't realize it was unplugged and my mangos got pretty gross. Be sure to check that the fridge is plugged in if you need to use it! There is a pool, though we didn't end up using it during our time there. Many people did though and it looked nice enough. We definitely recommend Chilled Backpacker if you're on a budget and looking for somewhere clean, comfortable, and a bit away from Pub Street.

AFFORDABLE HOSTEL IN SIEM REAP!”

The hostel is very affordable for group travels also serves yummy khmer breakfast for 2.50USD. It also near the pub street and the angkor night market. Very walkable from all the local finds and eats. They can arrange trips for you if you have not booked anything yet, the staff are very kind and attentive to our needs. They can improve on the cleanliness though, since Siem Reap is very dusty, some dusts may enter the hostel.

Then moved to a Mixed Dorm which was equally as clean and one of the nicest dorms we have stayed in! Only downside is that it is a little walk into the centre for Pub Street etc. However, cafe next door which serves the most AMAZING breakfast so cheap!

Hospitality”

The staff are very friendly, they give place to leave your luggages if ever you arrive early before your check in time. Though the toilets are not that clean maybe because we choose the dormitory type but I don't mind it as long as my things are safe. Lockers are under the bed and also, the food was great. They provided their own tuktuk driver with a reasonable tour price and the driver(Mr. Chom) is very kind and very accomodating person. This place is highly recommended for a very reasonable price. I will give rate 9/10.
