About this listing

You Khin House has a unique architecture blending modernity and tradition. The seven rooms are named after the days of the week and each one has a unique decoration and feel. The staff are genuinely friendly. They would go out of their way to help, with a smile.
You Khin House is extremely well located, central, near all amenities and yet quiet. Guests call it an oasis.

The space

Stay at this new guest house while traveling through Phnom Penh. This absolutely lovely place is owned by a Cambodian non-profit organization that runs Seametrey Children's Village, a Montessori nursery/day care center and a primary school next door. It enables children of underprivileged Cambodian families to get quality education which at the same time is strongly rooted in Khmer culture.

The school policy is social and cultural integration. Parents pay according to their income. Because of the fee structure, the school is partially self-sustainable. The guest house is a way to generate revenues to help sustain, improve and develop the school. Presently only Khmer teachers are paid. Foreign staff are unpaid volunteers. They come for short term, usually three months to a year.

The 3-story guest house was built in 2006 and is located on a side street in Phnom Penh's residential neighborhood Tonle Bassac. It consists of seven tastefully decorated guest (URL HIDDEN) decoration is culturally inspired yet modern and comfortable. Each room is air-conditioned and has its own bathroom. The guest house has a homely atmosphere. There is a large lounge with a snooker table and flat screen TV on the second floor. On the ground floor, there is a painting gallery, internet facilities, a small intimate restaurant and a swimming pool. A multi service desk is at your disposal to respond to your needs from sightseeing to mundane concerns like having a dress made or fixed.

By staying at this guest house, you help offer underprivileged families a quality education for their children and thus help them break the vicious cycle of poverty. If you wish, you can visit the new school in the countryside an hour away and meet the children there. You’ll learn more about the Seametrey NGO that was founded 20 years ago and the school that has been running in its 13th year by visiting the school web site at (URL HIDDEN)
Muoy You, the founder and director of both the school and the guest house, will be happy to show you around and answer your questions.

Other things to note

1/ When out on an evening, do let our guard know what time you plan to come back so that he can expect you.

2/ Our address is #13A, street 830. Unfortunately there is no street sign as sometimes is the case in Cambodia. The landmarks are numerous though: Opposite the Russian embassy, Near Watt Svay Pope (Temple), the Sofitel or the Famous Aeon mall.

Muoy's house is very comfortable way and although it is in the city centre it is very quiet and secluded. Highly recommended.

We have been traveling to Phnom Penh for seven years and experienced our fair share of accommodations. You Khin House offers peace and cleanliness. The walls are thick and provide noise protection - both from other guests and the never ending construction of the city. This guest house is not your typical hotel that corals foreigners into seemingly nice quarters. They really take care of you and provide all help necessary to travel. It's a $2 tuk tuk ride to the Riverside and museums. Best yet, income from You Khin House directly supports a nursery and primary school outside of the city. So your accommodations cost converts to local educational opportunities.

The staff were very helpful and we enjoyed our breakfast prepared by the 4 Ladies every morning. We went to the school run by Muoy who deserves our supports for her charity work and causes. Highly recommended. I won't go anywhere when I am in Phnom Penh next time.

The place is really beautiful, helpful people and the tuk tuk guy was very good. Try staying at the place for 2-3 days to enjoy the guest house and admire the beautiful place.

We enjoyed our stay at the Guest house very much! All the staff members were very friendly and the rooms a bit old, but very clean. We were glad about the pool as it was very hot around the time we were there. Immediately after arriving we booked two more nights for our return from Siem Reap and definitely did not regret it. The Guest house has a very personal touch and is definitely a good choice for staying in Phnom Penh!

I am from Cambodia but have lived in France, Sudan, Ivory Coast, Qatar, Belgium and London. I am a French teacher by trade but passionate in education in general. My goal in opening the guesthouse is to support the school I have founded to provide quality education to Khmer children. I have four grown up children, have been a widow for nearly three years now. My late husband, You Khin, was an artist and an architect. He designed the guesthouse you are going to stay in. That's why it has a unique feel and charm. Welcome to You Khin House!
