I returned to top banana two years after my first visit, and the place is still nice and clean, I slept well in the dorm. The rooftop bar is a good place for me to work on my laptop by day and have drinks and hangout at night. And special thanks to Neat from the staff for showing me around...

My friends and I came to the Top Banana bar frequently while we lived in Phnom Penh. It was our go-to place for nightlife on the weekend because it's a great place to enjoy some drinks and dancing with friends and meet new people passing through the city. We celebrated a number of birthdays here, including mine, and always really...

Myself and my girlfriend stayed here in march. It was clean, quiet, good wifi and great bar/restaurant. We stayed here as it was cheaper (and didn't have to stay in a dorm) than mad monkey and just partied at the mad monkey bar every night. Highly recommend. Very impressed.

The bed was awesome, far the best in any hostel or guesthouse I visited. The lockers where robust and reliable, the shower had nice pressure and warm water with clean environment. Overall the bedroom and toilet was awesome. I suggest you stay on 2nd floor. Sockets for charging your electronics are located on every bed and all around the bar...

I stayed in a private room that was spacious. It was surprisingly peaceful as well given the proximity to the hostel bar & the main road. Nice hostel & bar with a really lovely team. Felt very welcome there. Special mention to the manager Neat who did a great job

Probably the most clean hostel I've stayed in whilst travelling around South East Asia. The room was spacious and clean with good functioning air conditioning and fan all for a very reasonable price. The only negative about the room was the shower water was freezing. The staff were friendly and helped me post my postcard. The bar was lively with...
