Sla Boutique Hostel is a modern hostel nestled conveniently in the center of Phnom Penh city that offers travelers a place to unwind and meet people in a community environment that is clean, friendly, and affordable. Although our street is nice and quiet, it’s just one block away from a vibrant neighborhood filled with restaurants, clubs, street food vendors, and bars. It is also close to the city’s major attractions.
Our team here is excited to show you our Khmer hospitality and Sla, which is a clean, fun and friendly environment.
We are open 24/7, with front desk staff to assist you at all times during your stay with us.
Our team takes pride in providing quality service in a professional and friendly manner, which we are very proud of. Please know that all service charges go directly to the staff.
We at Sla take pride in our cleanliness. Every staff from management to housekeeping takes a meticulous approach to inspecting our facilities in order to meet our high sanitation and hygiene standards.
Traveling away from home can be a scary experience; therefore it is so important that our guest receives our warmest hospitality. It is Sla’s mission to ensure our guests a comfortable and enjoyable stay.
We believe that finding the perfect accommodation is an essential element in one’s travel plans, and often the best choice comes with a big price tag. With this belief in mind, Sla is ideal for travelers who are looking for a clean, friendly and affordable place to stay.
In attempting to conserve energy and be more environmentally conscious, our hostel uses solar panels to heat our water system. All bedrooms are equipped with energy saving inverter air conditioning and LED energy saving light bulbs. Our stairwells are setup with light sensors that automatically shut off when no one is around.
We have chosen a number of indoor plants for our hostel, not just because of their beauty but because these plants are also known for their abilities to reduce air pollutants, mold and bacteria.
Instead of relying on chemical based deodorizers, we prefer to use eco-friendly alternatives such as activated charcoal and kaffir limes.
Khmer Cultural Values
In the Khmer culture, importance is placed upon the community aspect of eating. People eat family style, sharing dishes and enjoying each other’s company. We kept this cultural ideal in mind when designing our kitchen. Guests are encouraged to buy food from the market and use our community fridge and facility to cook meals. We hope that through this focus on community, our guests can both feel at home and enjoy the Khmer experience as well as the cultures of their fellow travelers.
Our focus on Khmer value extends beyond our hospitality. Just like in any Khmer home, we ask that our guests kindly remove their shoes upon entering our hostel. Safe storage is available for our guests’ footwear.
Our hostel offers four different types of rooms, all modern-day style, and totaling 48 beds. There are 1) girl dorm rooms 2) boy dorm rooms 3) co-ed dorm rooms and 4) private double rooms with shared bathroom. In the dormitory room, there are two kinds of bed: Basic bed with 1.0 meter wide for single occupancy only & Standard bed with 1.6 meter wide for 1 or 2 guests. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, hot water shower, and personal lockers.
We have 24-hour front desk services, and TV and free WI-FI are available in the communal area.
The community kitchen and dining area is a great place to meet and chat with other travelers, or watch television. Our kitchen has basic cookware, dining ware, utensils, and other kitchen appliances that our guests are welcome to use.
The indoor patio is a hangout spot for your own relaxation or catching up and sharing traveling stories with other guests. The furniture is spaciously laid out to give our guests privacy and space.
