Siem Reap Hostel, Siem Reap, Cambodia
Owned and run by Australian and Cambodian Nationals, The Siem Reap Hostel is a true hostel, purpose designed and built from the ground up to provide top shelf backpacker accommodation for a range of budgets. There is a lively poolside bar and restaurant, and plenty of common areas making it easy to socialise and meet other travellers, or get away from it all and enjoy the peace and quiet, overlooking the beautiful grounds of the Wat Dam Nak temple.
It’s also only a five minutes’ walk from the action of the Old Market and Pub Street and they have all the trimmings like free, fast WiFi, air conditioning, hot showers, private balcony and separate, ensuite bathroom and shower in our deluxe dorms and private rooms.
They also offers services such as free pickups from the airport, air con in all rooms, extensive electronic security, big backpack size lockers under every bed (padlocks for $1) and night guards for your peace of mind, free computers in lobby and the best bit is a sparkling undercover POOL, cleaned every day which is amazing when the weather outside is close to 40 degrees.
It’s got to be said this is one of the nicest hostels we stayed in whilst travelling round South East Asia. It was clean, friendly, had a pool, rooms were nice and we felt safe. The price was slightly more expensive but considering what you got for your money the value was amazing.
They also offered extras which made it even better such as cinema screenings daily, a beautiful balcony room for yoga with several classes weekly, a 24 Hr check-in, room servicing and cleaning every day and dorm bathrooms and toilets serviced twice daily, a chill out room and book swap library, TVs in all private rooms with over 60 channels and a free pool table, foosball, giant Connect 4 game, heaps of board games. What more could you want?!
Oh and they had a three hour happy hour with 50c beers and 2 for 1 cocktails!
This place was amazing, I would recommend over and over again!
