Big John's Beach On The Hill BBQ & Chil-axn Sihanoukville Reviews
poor service! Apr 20, 2012
The hostel is located in a quiet part of Sihanoukville which is both good and bad. Bad because you'll have to spend money on tuk-tuks and good because there is a small quiet beach nearby and some great local restaurants with delicious food and very very cheap!
We were 4 people travelling and we booked 3 rooms. However, there was some confusion with the booking but after some explaining we got 3 rooms as they weren't fully booked anyway. But as we later realised we were charged more than we should have been. Definitely not nice.
It turned out that we didn't get rooms we wanted (single/double) but all the rooms were hostel-style with bunk beds! So if we wanted to we could have stayed in one room (well, we didn't want to anyway, but I don't really need that many beds in my room!). The room looked ok, but the main light was not working at all. Also had problems with TV so I gave up. Thankfully wi-fi was working.
The bathroom was smelly when I checked-in and not clean. There was even a used soap and its packaging on the sink.. That says a lot. A toilet in my friends' room didn't flush..
What is more, one day when I came back to my room the TV was on - and I was sure I didn't leave it on as I wasn't using a TV. So I assume it was a cleaning staff..
There's a rooftop bar and restaurant but well, don't bother. The staff don't speak much English so it's a struggle to order.
We were disappointed with our stay, we definitely expected more from this place. Not recommended.
