Management should put real Kampot pepper on the restaurant tables and supply pepper grinders. The stuff they have on the tables is junk and is ground as fine a flour, and still won't come out of the shakers. The Billabong should serve some dishes with real green Kampot pepper-that would be a natural and great!!! Billabong is missing out on...

The billabong hostel and hotel is a cheap and nice hostel to stay if you can actually find a date when it's not booked. Unfortunately the hostel does not accept credit cards. It has a nice pool however the far is extremely over priced. Beer is around $1.50 during happy hour when you can find beer at most local places...

Very clean and well equipped hostel, feels like a hotel but at a hostel price. Extremely comfortable stay. Has a board to team up with other travelers to share tuk tuks to the airport or killing fields. Can book anything from staff. Professional for a value price.

The ;property is nice, but the staff can use some training in the areas of customer service and politeness. I had 3 below average encounters with 2 of the front counter employees, and 1 of the employees in the restaurant. My issues are they did not speak when my friend and I came in on both days that we were...

Fantastic hostel - room was lovely and clean, showers were lovely, good size locker. Bar and pool area were social - great atmosphere. Organised daily tuk tuks to share with others to see the sights and helped organised my bus to Kampot. Would definitely stay here again if in Phnom Penh - highly recommend!!

lovely owners and managers, a true family business. private room was slightly overpriced for the exclusion, and beds, while moderately comfortable, were very loose. shower was amazing and the location was brilliant. though I didn't stay in a dorm, they did look inviting

“I have stayed in just about every room type here. This year we had a ground floor one facing the pool (room 16) and it was great-convenient to avoid stairs, have a quick dip in the pool or a beer in the restaurant. Frankly I have never had a bad room there. They now have dorm rooms and I have never stayed there, but at the price offered ($5-$10+/-), they sound like a deal to me, especially having a restaurant and pool there-if you like dorms of course! Not my cup of tea, but a good price in a first class hotel!”
