Here Be Dragons

Top choice hostel in Battambang
Image by

A stylish fun bar, leafy front garden for relaxing and free beer on arrival make Here Be Dragons a top backpacker base. Six- and eight-bed dorms come with lock-boxes, while sunny private rooms are cheerfully decked out with brightly coloured bedding. The quiet location next to the riverside park on the east bank is a bonus.

Regular events include yoga on Tuesday and Thursday and a pub quiz on Wednesday.
