After going to the markets, and feeling hot and frazzled, we went in here and had a few drinks and some snacks - Brilliant! We stayed a lot longer than we meant to and downed many beers and cocktails. I loved the zany garden area with comfy chairs and tables - we chose one and watched one of the locals... More

Me and my friend stayed in total 1,5 month in this hostel because we came back so many times. It’s an awesome place to stay in Phnom Penh. The rooms are clean and very good for the price. There is a fun atmosphere and great staff. The staff members were like our family. The hostels location is a walking distance... More

I found this hostel randomly only because of a tuktuk driver. I was supposed to stay in the hostel for only 2-3 nights, but every time I left the place, I couldn't let it go, so I ended up coming back 5 times, and staying in the hostel for almost 1 1/2 month in total. My time in this hostel... More

Had a good room with AC and nice street view. Also the shower and the bed were great. But the best part is the rooftop bar: friendly staff, good food and a great atmosphere. All of this for a fair price.

One of my best times on my 4 months travel in Asia was in Cambodia at 11 Happy Backpackers in Phnom Penh. In the beginning I only planned to stay there for two or three nights because there's not a lot of sightseeing to do and the city itself is not that exciting.. ..I ended up staying there for three...

If you do not mind bothering 100s of humble families living around every night, then please enjoy their roof top loud music. Music is so loud that anyway it is impossible to sleep in this guesthouse, whatever the floor you are staying in.

We stayed in a double air con room. Was cheap, but the bathrooms were a bit dirty. Didn't bother me too much. The roof bar is good, didn't eat here as was a bit pricy when you can get dinner from St 13 market area around the corner. But the music was played late and the bass was too much... More

Awesome atmosphere. The best rooftop chill area, restaurant and bar. And it's huge! Pool tables, couches and darts! Our room was good too. Although there's no internet in the rooms. Staff were a bit uninterested but if you just continue to ask them questions they'll help you out. Great location about 3 minutes walk to the riverfront, 5 minutes to... More

I only planned on staying here for a few nights but ended up extending my stay for over a week because they staff was so friendly and fun to be around. The rooftop bar was a great place to relax and play pool during the day and at night it can become quite the party with beer pong, dancing, and... More
