We got to this hostel on the recommendation of a friend, and it was pretty good. We thought we had paid for an aircon room, however when I asked the staff to turn it on they tried to charge us more! There was also no wifi in the rooms, only in reception and in the rooftop bar. The rooftop bar... More

If you're a backpacker this is the place to stay! The staff speak good English. Its clean good food and in a great location. It is a roof topbar so it will be a bit noicy in night, but of you're a backpacker you either join tje party or plug in your ear plugs!

We got to this hostel only because a toktok driver really insisted that it's a good one. The hostel was dirty and noisy and there was no WiFi in the rooms - only in the roof. There was one employee that lied to us and said that the hotel didn't have private room though it had and he tried to... More

I live in Phnom Penh and I visit 11 Happy Backpackers very frequently myself. It is what it is and what it should be: a grand backpackers hostel in the center of town. It has it all: many, many travelers come and go, dorms, private rooms, with or without air conditioning, an awesome rooftop (with wifi) - which can of... More

I found this hostel accidentally after watched a movie at the community theatre next door. The prices are really cheap, I've got a private fan room for 8 USD/night. The staff are all very friendly and helpful with any questions. There is a great rooftop bar where you can enjoy a 1$ draught beer or a 3-5$ meal all day... More

The rooms are clean and well air conditioned, the rooms are REALLY cheap, and the location is good, but that's about it. There is no wifi in the rooms and the hostel seems to be pretty empty at most times. I was in a 16 person dorm and I think only about 4 of the beds were occupied -- it... More

When people say if gets "quite noisey" that is a lie. It is EXTREMELY loud. I've just been woken up for the third time tonight, except this time to the loudest music ever and it is 3:11 am. The rooftop bar is cool but you don't have to get a room to go there. Also after reading the reviews, the... More

The hostel is a great choice for those wanting to make friends. It's incredibly sociable. Drinking beer, playing a game of pool and watching movies would best describe the social atmosphere. We had our very own tok tok driver who bought us to the touristy places of the city. It's close to the markets. I stayed in the private rooms... More

We arrived into phnom penh after a long bus journey with no where to stay, a local tuk tuk driver recommended this 11 happy hostel. We were apprehensive about this as we had heard of scams involving tuk tuk drivers and hostel but the location seemed ideal so we decided to try it out. The hostel is amazing, the rooms... More

We stayed in a dorm room and found it to be clean and extremely comfortable, which for $6 was great! The rooftop bar is one of the major selling points of the hostel and is lovely place to hang out - also with it being the only place in the hostel to gain a wifi it is usually packed with... More
