    Hi Emma,

    Nice list of hostels here.

    Each looks like it hosts a mean party too.

    Wifey and I are a bit ahem….advanced, age-wise 😉 So we are not into the party scene as much. But each shindig does look fun and hey, we visited all the same towns minus Koh Rong, so know how fun PP, Snookeyville, Kampot and Siem Reap are.

    Cambodia in general is just a fabulous place. Such warm people, and so beautiful too.

    Thanks for sharing Emma.
