Best Hostels and Guesthouses for Backpackers, Solo Travellers, & Groups of Friends in Siem Reap
The town of Siem Reap is located in northern Cambodia and is the main gateway to the famous Angkor Archaeological Park and Angkor Wat. The town is a tourist haven and there are plenty of amenities around, including restaurants, bars, and affordable accommodation. There are a few traditional backpacker style hostels, but most budget guesthouses cost about the same as a hostel and offer a slightly higher quality room. Although prices remain quite low by western standards, Siem Reap is significantly more expensive than other towns in Cambodia.

If you're traveling during the low season, your best option may be to arrange accommodation after you arrive. There are typically plenty of rooms available and you can often negotiate a lower price.

Like elsewhere in Southeast Asia, there is a constant turnover of guesthouses. For the most reliable recommendations, it is best to ask other travelers on the road where they stayed. If you want to make reservations in advance, the hostels below are usually listed on booking websites and are generally reliable.
