Although we only stayed one night in Phnom Penh, we're glad we stayed here. Great location - close to markets and nightlife and the rooftop bar was fantastic ! We stayed in a 15 bed dorm and even though it was big, it was very clean, if staying longer would recommend choosing a small dorm.

Rooms are spacious and clean and the staff are amazing (even playing pool with us most nights). The rooftop bar is fun but is loud if you're staying on the 3rd floor and in some rooms on the 2nd floor. The reception tend to try & give these rooms away first so just ask to me on a lower floor...

I've been here many times over the past couple months and each time is better than the last. The rooms are cheap and have everything you need in a budget room, but the real stars are the friendly and helpful staff and the chilled-out rooftop. Perfect for backpackers and solo travelers so be prepared for a loud fun atmosphere and... More

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
