The Mekong Hostel, Siem Reap
not a good choice
Not a great place. Very old and dirty. Many more places in Siem Reap to stay at this price range. The staff are friendly enough but the rooms are dirty -with stained linens and curtains. This place would be fine with a good deep clean- but they don't seem to want to update the property.
Maxine, us3 night romance trip
The Mekong Hostel, Siem Reap
Perfect hostel for backpackers
-Location: is pretty good. It is near old market or the so-called 'pub street' so the party or dining is quite easy to find. Not far from tourist destination, like Angkor Wat. - I stayed in their mixed dorm. The room and bed is very clean and brand-new. There are no blanket, though, just a thin sheet of white cloth to cover. The air-condition is pretty good, very cool. They also provide you hair-dryer and towel, so you do not have to bring one. The toilet is very clean. the housemaid will clean up the room every day. They did not take out wrapping plastic from the new bed though, so it will make sound whenever you move. This might be not good for those who is a hard sleeper. - The service is very professional. The staffs are friendly, English-fluently speaking and active. They arranged me a day trip with reasonable price and I can pay with my credit card. They tuk tuk driver is good. They can also arrange you a bus or minivan if you want to go to Thailand or Pattaya. - You will love the bar and a small pool near it if you come with a group of friends. Order some cocktails and sitting near the pool. - Value for money.

Clean hotel, free wifi
Good hotel. Nice (but small) pool. Good free breakfast with lots of options, both western and Asian, free coffee in the mornings. The room had free wifi which worked well, a good shower with hot water, a comfortable bed.
A Traveler, as2 night trip with friends
The Mekong Hostel, Siem Reap
I stayed there with my husband for two nights. The hotel is close to night markets and many restaurants (and local food stalls on street as well). The hotel staff are nice (and funny!). The room is a bit basic, we were happy with the cable TV though! There is a small pool at the hotel entrance but I didn't use as it's a bit too public. I'd recommend the hotel restaurant, the food is good and VERY cheap. I think it's a great place for backpackers as the room rate is low and you can meet other people there.
