Kampot’s Most Happening Backpackers
Arcadia Backpackers is located 8km’s from Kampot, in the village of Snam Brampi. Away from the traffic, smells and hassle of the city, we are blessed with picturesque river and mountain views from sunrise to sunset. Arcadia boasts Cambodia’s first and true Waterpark which is a great hit for the thrill seekers or those wanting to explore their wild side. Throw in adorable dogs, a ping pong table, pool table, slack line, home gym, hammocks and chill out areas for those wanting to stay dry, Arcadia offers something for everybody.
Here at Arcadia, we try to offer a more homely and social environment for our guests, rather than your typical forced fed fun chain hostels. We target fun, social people and provide a variety of activities including daily hikes, boat trips and camping adventures for all to be involved in. For those not so active, there is a huge pontoon for people wanting to sun-bathe and plenty of hammocks around the grounds that offer a place to soak in the view, relax or read a book.
The bar at Arcadia is the centre piece of the hostel. With direct views just metres from the waterpark, you’re always quite involved in the action as you enjoy a meal or social drink with fellow guests. The bar is always very lively and social with nightly activities that include live music, pub quizzes and beer pong/pool/ping pong tournaments. For those missing a little piece of home, we have cable TV to view a variety of sports.
The kitchen is open from 7am-8.30pm serving both Western & Asian food with all the food sourced from local fresh, quality ingredients. We only accept cash here at Arcadia, so please bring money with you, as there are no ATM’s nearby.
Please note that Arcadia has an age limit set to 18+ for staying guests.
