Another insane journey which started at 7am and ended at 4am the next morning and consisted of: a bus, a ferry, another bus, three forms to fill in at the border, a temperature check- (mine was 36, think that's good!). One of the girls was told she had a fever and nearly wasn't allowed through but we had been stood out in heat of almost 40 degrees …

Arriving in Phnom Penh after a twelve hour bus journey from the tranquility of the 4000 Islands in Laos was like stepping into another world. Even before our bus had finished parking there was a barrage of tuk tuk drivers at the windows and doors flashing laminated signs for whatever hostel will pay them a commission for bringing you there.

Phnom Penh - The Capital

On the 3rd Jan we left Siem Reap and headed to Cambodian capital – Phnom Penh.

And yet again we were unlucky to get in the middle of some protests! In this case unfortunately it was related to Textiles factories workers who demanded to double their minimum wage (which at the time was USD 80 per month!), as far as I found …

Day 74
All the roads in Cambodia are centrally linked to Phnom Penh so we found ourselves zooming back up to visit the city again. We arrived by 2pm and as soon as we checked into our hotel we headed out. We did try to stay at Kha Vi guest house like last time because we were satisfied there but they were full so we ended up on the same street …

    Well, we were robbed while we slept! It was partly our fault as the room door wasn't locked ( too many drinks and a 4am return to the room ) We told the staff in the morning and their reaction was "no, not possible this has never happened before!" They wouldn't help me, wouldn't acknowledge it had happened and were quite rude about it. In saying that if that hadn't happened I would rate the hotel better as it is ok, good location, cheap and 2 members of staff were particularly helpful. It I strange thought that we were robbed when the hotel is supposed to be guarded.....

    We stayed here for two nights after just arriving in Cambodia. It is a nice little place, centrally located and reasonable on price. The rooms are really nice and better than a lot we stayed in in Thailand for the same price. En-suite rooms with hot water, TV and fan or aircon. The restaurant food is really good and also reasonable. Free wifi is available.

    We were able to walk to a lot of the attractions in town so it is in a good location. We took a tuk tuk to the Russian Market for $5 return as that was a bit too much of a walk.

    There is also a tour desk and we were able to book our transport and accommodation in Siem Reap easily. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

    Would recommend staying here.

    OK, some of the rooms could do with a bit of an uplift, but the staff are ver helpful and friendly and there's a nice atmosphere. It's very central to everywhere you'd want to go in Phnom Penh. I've returned here many times.

    We came to Okay Guesthouse in Phnom Penh with high hopes I must say. We just had an incredible stint at okay1 villa in Siem Reap. Amazing service, impeccably clean and amazing staff. Okay Guesthouse is only good for a night or two. Basic is the key word. I got bed bugs as well because the mattresses looked like they hadn't been changed in decades. The staff were friendly enough, but there is no way to compare the two hotels despite having the same owner.

    An absolute must stay if you are in Phnom Penh. These guys have everything sorted out from cheap rooms to slighlty more expensive rooms, travel, advice, food and best of all service! You are handed a book which you put everything you buy in and you pay when you leave, honesty system and it works a treat, use it and DO NOT ABUSE IT, as it is a GREAT thing. We loved Okay (Awesome) Guesthouse, sorry I had to rename this place!!!

    When we returned for our second visit to Okay Phnom Penh, we were greeted with open arms and a HUGE smile from one of the guys who organised our last depature bus trip and a few of the other guys who worked at Okay recognised us and the HELLO, grabbing our bags and taking them straight to our room, it was like coming home to visit family. When we were getting ready to leave a group was leaving as well, group photo with the Okay crew and it was like they were leaving home, it felt the same when we left, the managers and workers came to say good bye expressing the O-Kurn hands together huge smiles.

    I have read some ugly reviews on Okay but this must have been a thing of the past or just a bad experience that someone may have had. I can assure you we have stayed with Okay twice now Feb-March 2011 and the place is AWESOME great rooms, prices, food and service. They now have another one in Siem Reap which we are currently staying at. The place is brand new, bigger rooms, massive rooftop with a GREAT pool and the same great prices, same menu. Okay Phnom Penh will organise a similar room and free pick up from the bus station for the Siem Reap Okay Villa.

    From Okay Villa Siem Reap you can walk to the night market and main pubs and resturants in 10-15 minutes or $1 Tuk Tuk, you could bargain this to 3000Riel. Okay Villa Siem Reap is next door to Yellow Guesthouse which Tuk Tuk drivers and locals know much better as Okay only opened in Feb 2011. We told the Tuk Tuk drivers Yellow guesthouse house, and they say YES $1, you say Okay guesthouse and they look confused, this was from the night market area.

    All in all Okay Guesthouse is well above Okay.

    we arrived at 2am and the night security were not very helpful and tried puttin us in a single room for 2 people and charging for a double obviously we refused.

    They wouldn't let us go into the dorm rooms either so teh boss was called. apparently they only use the cheapest dorm rooms when they are full coz they would rather you pay more money, but we got there in the end.

    the food there is apparently awesome and overall an average guesthouse.

    Vi bodde bare her et par netter mens vi ordna med visum til Vietnam. Billig og ok rom, litt tungvint at matserveringa var i et annet bygg, men ok. Vi fikk en spisesal/venterom-følelse av å spise der, men det var billig og ok, så det var greit nok for frokost. De arrangerer en haug med turer herfra.

    We only stayed for a couple of nights, and the room was fairly ok. Breakfast was served in another house, a bit inconvenient, but ok. The serving area gave us more the classroom/booking area feeling, not very cosy. But ok and cheap food, ok for breakfast. They arrange a bunch of tours from here.
