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 sightseeings 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.

Guest access

Guests have access to all the facilities at the guesthouse as described above - namely the swimming pool, the gallery, the communal lounge with flat screen TV, library and snooker table.

This place is perfect for visiting Phnom Penh! Royal Palace and National Museum are within a 20 minutes walk, the rest of places can be reached by tuk tuk. All the staff is very kind and helpful. I loved being here and definitely would come back again!

Muoy's place is quiet and well run. She even has a small restaurant there. Her late husband was an architect and designed the place. Also he was a painter and has several fabulous paintings hanging. Well worth the price.

A lovely place! Very spacious, clean, and nicely decorated. In a nice area of town. Lovely to see all of You Khin's original paintings throughout the house. I ended up getting a stomach bug during my stay (not from the food here), so ended up in bed all day one day - but it was a decent place to rest up, if ever there was one! We didn't use the pool, but everything looked lovely. Highly recommended.

Muoy and her staff were very sweet and accommodating. The inn was clean and quiet and an easy walk to restaurants and attractions!

Great room with a big, clean bathroom. We didn't have hot water, though. The air conditioning was great, as was the breakfast and the friendly staff. We struggled getting a tuk-tuk driver to understand where to drop us off, but there were always drivers waiting outside. Overall, it's a pretty good place to stay!

although taxi drivers might initially find it hard to locate, with a little help from poonting at (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps a few times, we found it easily enough. the place is lovely and presents a nice quiet oasis away from a busy Street only a few metres away. we only stayed one night so can't say more definitively but it has the potential to be a really fabulous place to stay. we also liked chin/jim(?), our very cheery and fearless tuk tuk driver!

Muoy User ProfileMuoy is a superhost.

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!
