      The friendliness of the staff, the quietness of the place, the projects developed by the owner of the guesthouse

      It's by far the best place we stayed at during our trip in Cambodia. Everybody is so nice there, smily, always helping. I hope that if you go you'll have the chance to meet Muoy, who has incredible projects for running and building a school for underprivileged children. The place is really quiet, the house is full of books, paintings, musical instruments. Sitting outside next to the swimming pool surrounded by tree is very enjoyable. It's located in a peaceful neighbourhood, at a walking distance from the busy and lively streets where many restaurants and tourists place are.

      Supports social cause ~ Yummy home-cooked food ~ Attentive and friendly staff

      We had an enjoyable and memorable stay at You Khin House. We heard about it through agoda ; and decided to book 2 nights. What drew us to it is the social cause - all proceeds go towards supporting Seametrey Children’s Village (nursery/day care and primary school next door). We were blessed to have met the owner, who took time to show us around the school. We even got the chance to chat and interact with teachers, volunteers and children! The staff and volunteers are doing such an amazing job; indeed a note-worthy cause to support - you'll know it when you meet them! Don't forget to savour yummy home-cooked traditional khmer and international food at the restaurant in You Khin House. Superb food and service! We were very lucky to have stayed on Friday, cause the (older) school children prepared delicious pancakes with various fillings for us. Yeah! What’s also really interesting is the art gallery in this guest house, which not only spans in the living area (level 1) but also at the stairways, guest rooms and bathrooms too! And for rainy days (esp during monsoon period), one can pass time by having a game or two at the pool table or grab a book at level 3. In fact, we had such a pleasant stay that we extended one more night here! Thanks to staff, volunteers and children who made all this possible.

      I was disappointed with this hotel. I had booked it knowing it was out of the way but i thought that as it supported a school and the kids came through to swim and sing and serve crepes i would love to support it.I am not sure if the lady who normally is involved with that was away, but it was different to what we expected. After checking in every time you go in or out you hang the key in the kitchen, i wasnt really sure who worked at reception.We asked about the crepes but every time they were not available,The kids never sang though they did come and swam pretty much unsupervized having a ball doing cannon balls etc.The ladyies in the kitchen were lovely, we ate there a few times and we were happy with the food and service from them

      Off the beaten path, service could improve”

      Quiet neighborhood, pool area is very nice

      There is a card in each room titled "Please Read!" that explains that You Khin House is a school, first, and a hotel second. It shows, as there was really no clear contact person for hotel-related matters. Often, I'd have to ask volunteers who were there working for the school for assistance, which created rather awkward situations as that's not really their role.

      Cozy

      Cozy guesthouse with great staff who always has a smile when they see you. Good central location, close to everything, all the tourist spots are 5 to 10 min Tuktuk rides away. They always have Tuktuk drivers waiting outside the hotel so no worries about having to find one. We neve tried their lunch or dinner but breakfast was a really simple affair with toast, juice and fruits. If you need something heartier walk outside a bit and there are plenty of restaurants close by.

      das essen ist toll!

      das Hotel hat im Internet einen bessern Eindruck gemacht. es ist nicht wirklich zentral, man braucht also immer ein Taxi. es gibt eine sehr schlechte Internet Verbindung, die im Zimmer nur sehr langsam funktioniert und kein TV. Also für den Preis, sollten diese Dinge zumindest stimmen. Der kleine Pool wird tagsüber von Kindern besetzt, was auch ein entsprechende Lautstärke hat. Im Hotel wird Zahnpasta für 6 Dollar verkauft... also alles etwas übertrieben aber nicht wirklich die Sache wert. Zimmer sonst sauber und tolles Restaurant!

      Wonderful atmosphere - friendly, family feel”

      Great pool, tasty food

      We were welcomed as old friends and would recommend You Khin House to other travellers who want home stay rather than impersonal service.

      Off the beaten path, service could improve”

      Quiet neighborhood, pool area is very nice

      There is a card in each room titled "Please Read!" that explains that You Khin House is a school, first, and a hotel second. It shows, as there was really no clear contact person for hotel-related matters. Often, I'd have to ask volunteers who were there working for the school for assistance, which created rather awkward situations as that's not really their role.

      Cozy hotel, great staff, good cause”

      Cozy

      Cozy guesthouse with great staff who always has a smile when they see you. Good central location, close to everything, all the tourist spots are 5 to 10 min Tuktuk rides away. They always have Tuktuk drivers waiting outside the hotel so no worries about having to find one. We neve tried their lunch or dinner but breakfast was a really simple affair with toast, juice and fruits. If you need something heartier walk outside a bit and there are plenty of restaurants close by.

      ok, geht aber so”

      das essen ist toll!

      das Hotel hat im Internet einen bessern Eindruck gemacht. es ist nicht wirklich zentral, man braucht also immer ein Taxi. es gibt eine sehr schlechte Internet Verbindung, die im Zimmer nur sehr langsam funktioniert und kein TV. Also für den Preis, sollten diese Dinge zumindest stimmen. Der kleine Pool wird tagsüber von Kindern besetzt, was auch ein entsprechende Lautstärke hat. Im Hotel wird Zahnpasta für 6 Dollar verkauft... also alles etwas übertrieben aber nicht wirklich die Sache wert. Zimmer sonst sauber und tolles Restaurant!

      personal, garten, ruhe

      Entspannt, nettes Personal, wohlgefühlt. Etwas nervig sind die zahlreichen Hinweisschilder. Man fühlt sich ständig etwas ermahnt.

      装饰有柬埔寨特色

      店长和店员都很nice,还带领我们去超市,防止我们迷路。位置也靠近皇宫和国家博物馆,旅游业很方便。但是酒店具体的位置在小巷子里,第一印象会有偏僻的感觉。

      Dobrá poloha”

      Hotel se nachazí v těsné blízkosti AEON Mall. Pokoj byl pěkný a čistý. Bohužel netekla vůbec teplá voda a wifi taky byla dost pomalá. Byli jsme pouze jednu noc takže jsme nijak neřešili. Na víc nocí bych volil asi něco jiného.
