10 TOP HOSTELS IN SIEM REAP, CAMBODIA, COMPARED: A Basic Review

Cambodia, specifically the area of Siem Reap, has become one of the major tourist hubs in Southeast Asia to the point that its dark history is almost not visible. To give you a background, Cambodia was formerly led by a communist military junta called the Khmer Rouge and then invaded by the Vietnnamese during the Indochina Wars. Below is the trailer of the movie First They Killed My Father which was a brilliantly-created movie about the said phase of Cambodian history.

Most people would agree with me that Siem Reap is a tourist-friendly city and it is very comfortable going around there (I looooove Pub Street!). Most spots are accessible either by foot or by riding a tuktuk. Moreover, options on where to stay, such as top hostels in Siem Reap, are on the rise and are very convenient to find.

Meanwhile, I have created a simple travel vlog containing video clips I took from my trip in Cambodia, covering Phnom Penh and Siem Reap:

TOP HOSTELS IN SIEM REAP: SHERLYN’S CRITERIA

Personally, whenever I would visit another city and look for hostels, I usually use the following criteria:

  • LOCATION AND DISTANCE FROM LANDMARKS: As a backpacker/solo traveler on a budget, I would choose a hostel that is in a good location because I want to explore the cities by foot as much as possible and have access to basic establishments, such as convenience stores, public transportation, and such.
  • DISTANCE FROM THE AIRPORT: Factors such as time of our flights are important to consider choosing a place to stay vis-a-vis their distance from the airport. Some of us are staying in hostels for a layover and some of us just want to make sure we do not miss our next flights. Also, if we fly in or out at wee hours, public transportation is possibly not available and taxi is our only option, which can be more expensive depending on the distance of out hostels.
  • WI-FI CONNECTON: Most of us need an internet connection to do research about places to go and eat and things to do, or update out social media accounts with details from our travels, or connect with our loved ones. Whatever our purposes are, having a wi-fi connection at our hostels is a big factor.
  • FREE BREAKFAST: I am a morning person and I need to have breakfast, so this factor personally matters to me. I believe other budget travelers also consider getting their tummies full with a complimentary hostel breakfast before going out to explore the city.
  • RESTAURANT/COFFEE SHOP/BAR INSIDE THE HOSTEL: Some of us just wants to have access to these facilities at the comfort of being inside the premises of our hostels (especially after a long day of exploring!).
  • FREE BOTTLED WATER: A hydro homie here! This may not be popular in hostels, but most hostels have water dispensers provided but you have to bring your own bottle.
  • TOILETRIES: This is a deciding factor to me since as much as possible I don’t want to experience the hassle of bringing in liquids inside my carry-on luggage (only to get confiscated at the airport! Ouch!), so if basic toiletries are available at the hostel, I might only bring what I really need.
  • WASHING MACHINE/LAUNDROMAT: Light packers usually bring enough set of clothes, but any type of packer might run out of clean clothes to wear. Hence, it is a big deal for me personally if the hostel has a laundromat or a washing machine.
  • ACTIVITIES: Hostels are also places for socialization with other travelers, right? I am an introvert, but if I ran out of things to do or if I feel like socializing or maybe do something inside the hostel, this criteria matters.
  • AIRPORT TRANSFERS: Some hostels offer free airport transfer and we all should maximize this! However if I indicated a ‘yes’ answer for the airport transfer criteria here, please check with the hostel first if it is free or not.
