Stayed here for one night as a stop through Cambodia to Vietnam and was generally just a bit strange. As others have said, the staff seem to get drunk together each night in the communal area and then sleep there so you either have to wake them up or be really quiet as you leave. Our room was right next...

The Blue Dog is a very nice party and relax hostel. Stuff is very friendly and welcome to all visitors. Place is central (near independence monument) and not far from the royal palace, riverside etc. Surrounding area is modern and western style with lots of restaurants. Laundry works pretty well and fast. Would visit it every time again.

Very good backpacker place. Dorms with or without AC, both surprisingly well isolated from the party sounds. Functionnal and quite clean, staff always helpful, and party downstairs if you feel like it. I would go back there without a second through.

The blue dog have some repetition of having parties almost every night, and that could affect you as a guest at this guesthouse. But! To be fair the parties wasn't that annoying ;) The dorms are nice, the staff friendly and helpful and the guesthouse has a good location. So if you can fall asleep to some booming music now...

I won't beat about the bush - this is a party hostel. The guesthouse is above a bar of the same name, which blares out loud music until the early hours. I've got no idea how I fell asleep! There were also people playing drinking games in the common area, which was right outside my room, so really not good...

I should begin by saying that I stayed here for two and a half weeks, which is uncommon but was necessary as i'm in the city for work. The dorm I was in was apparently the quiet one, and considering the rampant partying which occurs every night at Blue Dog I couldn't hear a peep of it, which was great....

If you don't mind crappy pop music blaring until the early hours then this place is great. Really happy and helpful staff, cheap clean rooms, fast wifi, fantastic air con, good location. Parties every night, which weren't really my scene but the noise didn't bother me. It's about a 30 minute walk from the river side but still plenty of...

Great place to stay and hang out, it's clean and super comfy, the staff is very nice and ready to help you for anything, Blue Dog is probably the best thing happened to me in Phnom Penh! Feels like home for me.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Blue Dog hostel/guesthouse is right in the centre of Phnom Penh's famous Boeung Keng Kang district. That means when you stay with us, you're only minutes from all of the capital's best sights. Ten minutes' walk east and you'll find the Independence Monument, the Royal Palace and the riverside, head a kilometre south and you'll find the Genocide Museum and BKK market. For clean, affordable accommodation, we've 4 private rooms and 3 mixed and 1 female only dorms that back onto a common chill out area and balcony for a lazy afternoon. Our staff speak great English, (even the western ones!) and will always be willing to help you out with a smile. ... more   less
