Welcome to Sla Boutique Hostel

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.

What is Sla ?
“Sla” is the Khmer word for the “areca catechu” or “areca betal palm.” In Cambodia, sla flowers are often used in wedding ceremonies to signify the bond between the man and wife. When the flowers are thrown on the bride and groom, the thrower is wishing the newlyweds long life and happiness in matrimony. Here at SLA, we take that tradition a step further and wish to bestow happiness in your travels!
