We stayed here for some days and we can't complain much. Staff was not the happiest, but they were polite. The rooftop bar was nice, but always with the same music and food was overpriced, in my opinion. One night we had a love story between an aussie guy and an american girl, who met there but they were talking... More

Happy, as I like to call it, for me and my friends as we were volunteers just out of Pnhom Penh, was a once a week (a bit more for me because I love the place) drinking spot. We'd usually get there around 8-9pm and drink there till midnight (around when it usually winds up so the people already in... More

Honestly this is a really bad guest house. Their travel services are really expensive, the rooms are at the minimum (just a bed, shower outside, bugs in the bed..) for a high price. Go somewhere else !

This guesthouse is a nightmare if you are tired or want to sleep before 2am. Actually this hostel is more a club than a GH. They put the music so loud that wherever your room is, you can hear the music and especially the bass! Sometimes your window is even vibrating. Even with earplugs, you are in troubles! It is... More

Staying at 11 happy hostel was really a nightmare. It's so noisy! You feel like in a club inside your room until 2 am. It was impossible to sleep even with earplugs. I think the room 203 is the worst: next to the stairs, window impossible to close. We complain because we couldn't sleep and wanted another room, a quieter... More

We stayed 1 night instead of 2 in this hostel, after reading the reviews about the noise we specifically asked for quiet room, the manager with a "bad boy" attitude showed us a room (room 203) and assured us it won't be noisy. This room was probably one of the worst as it had a window overlooking the stairs so... More

We stayed here in family room. With double bed. The fan made a horrible noise so we had to set it the 1st speed which made the room too hot. This was really the worst point. On top of the fact that the roof bar closes when the last customer leaves. Which is nice if you want to party but... More

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...
