LOVED IT! Great deal! Jun 11, 2010
I have been to Siem Reap 5 Times and have stayed at the Yellow Guest House every time. The people that run it are SO nice and it's exceptionally clean :)VERY CHEAP for what you get! Great for backpackers. As a woman travelling alone I felt very safe and taken care of. Nicest tuk tuk drivers you could ever meet :)

Yellow Guest House/Hello Paradise Guest House, Siem Reap Mar 30, 2008
Please note I have been petioned by the owner to remove this review as it is under new management. I cannot fully vouch for this claim, nor the new service but am happy to add this disclaimer: if it were not for the rough handling I received this would have been a wonderful guest house (see detailed ratings) and may still be.


Terrible service, do NOT stay here! – We hired their tuk-tuk driver to see Angkor Wat and despite being told it would cost $12/day, they tried to charge us $25 for the second day! Although we could understand the extra charge for going to some of the far-away temples, the going rate is an extra $6, not $13.

Following this they then ruined two brand new tops in the laundry by getting bleach on them, and when I returned one monotone olive top to wash, thinking it was still dirty, they returned it literally TIE-DYED pale green and white! Furthermore, when I came to settle the bill I suggested they take $15 off the bill for the cost of the tops and they refused. When I tried to leave they MANHANDLED me back into reception and locked the doors until I paid the $15! Unbelievable!

Additionally it is miles from town on a dirt track in a dodgy alleyway which feels very unsafe as a lone traveler. I am still horrified by the treatment I had here.

Please can you be specific about which hostel you stayed at? Yellow Guest House & Hello Paradise Guest House have been unfortunately 'labelled' together although they are unrelated.
I believe you stayed at Hello Paradise so please can you specify this.
It sounds like you had a horrible time but it's only fair to criticise those responsible.
