Siem Reap is the must-visit destination in Cambodia for any Cambodia itinerary and is the perfect place to stay for at least a few days so you want to make sure that you find the best hostels in Siem Reap for the ultimate stay in the city.
Siem Reap is most famous for Angkor Wat which is just outside the city so don’t expect to be staying too close but it’s easy to catch a tuk tuk or grab a bike. All of the hostels I’m sharing are close to the action and have amazing amenities like rooftop pools or poolside bars, plus they’re all social (for party’s and for just chilling out).
For Siem Reap backpackers, this is the only hostel guide you’re going to need to find the best accommodation options for you from cheap hostels in Siem Reap to some with a nice touch of luxury, including private rooms. Finding where to stay in Siem Reap can’t get any easier.

Tips for Choosing the Best Siem Reap Hostel
When it comes to picking a hostel is all comes down to what you want and need. Some key things to keep in mind that will help you have the best stay are the following:
How Much to Budget
Hostel prices in Siem Reap are cheap! You can find a number of hostels for $4-5 or nicer hostels for $7-8. Some will include free breakfast, others won’t but don’t let that be your deciding factor! And pretty much all of them have pools, bonus!
Where to Stay in Siem Reap
Siem Reap is not huge so no matter where you stay it is usually only a 10-minute walk or a quick tuk tuk. But if you want to be around the action I recommend staying around Pub Street as that’s where the party is and most of the markets, such as the old market, are very close to here.
Siem Reap has quite a few party hostels but some chilled out ones as well. Read reviews to find out what the atmopshere is really like.
Always read the most recent reviews. These are the best way to find out if a hostel is really for you. Hostelworld has reviews for every hostel and I highly encourage you to check them out.
