Opening a Hostel in Cambodia

I want to open a hostel with my Chinese wife in a year or so and I'm considering options.
Cambodia is definitely high on my list. China seems like the obvious choice but I'm not sure I want to end my days in China.

Any advice or input regarding start up costs, legal issues and best city to open a hostel in?

Having a Chinese wife may well prove an asset here. I recently saw a for sale sign on a hostel on St.172 that is or was run by a Japanese guy that wears fishnet stockings. It's a great location for backpackers, but don't forget to factor in a low season.
