Pluses: price, location, friendly staff, rooftop bar. Minuses: too noisy, very basic. Ideal for those looking for parties. Not ideal for those who prefer quiter place. Would recommend for 1 night, for longer try something else.

Great budget accommodation in a good location. Rooms are extremely basic if not a bit grubby. The sheets on our bed although they smelt clean, were covered in stains and had numerous holes in. The toilet was also leaking and kept leaving a puddle on the bathroom floor. Could definitely do with some TLC! The rooftop bar is really great... More

Rooms were comfy and clean. Really social hostel. Ice coffee is delish! Party vibes on rooftop so you can pretty much sleep undisturbed. Good location. tuk tuk to killing fields etc right outside. We transferred to shianoukville from here which they were (11) happy to sort out for us. :)

If you love going to sleep to the sound of very loud music this place is for you. I only stayed one night at the happy backpackers and I was happy there wasn't another night. The room and bathroom was pretty dirty and I don't think the sheets had been cleaned on the most uncomfortable bed of my trip. The... More

The location was good, and the room was quite large. But we had a lot of issues with this place, some of which the staff were able to fix (leaking air con and lack of water) but the door lock was broken in a lot of respects and this was a big thing for us cause of room did not... More

We had the worst experience here. When we arrived we were shown to our room where the apathetic cleaner pushed her dirty mop around our feet and then sprayed a bit of air freshener as she shuffled out the door. The room was a dive, the curtains were incredibly tatty with some pretty ropey looking yellow stains. The fan didn't... More

The room was suprisingly very descent and clean and basic. Wifi speed was ok and location was pretty good too. You definately feel a gopd vibe here. Whilst being on a budget the hostel was good value for money.

Again I had luck with dropping randomly in. The hostel is in very safe areas compared to others I have been to in Phnom phen, despite the fact it is near beer bars with few dodgy people eyeing visitors. Girls at the reception desk are very friendly and so is staff at rooftop bar. Dorms are large with cosy beds.... More

I understand that this is a budget hotel. I was not expecting much. The rooms are clean. However, when your room does not come with a towel I think that is a problem. We went downstairs to ask the receptionist....she said there was a 5 dollar deposit.....okay fine....but what I was given was comparable to a rag. Also, it was... More

Pros: The rooftop bar is great, has a very relaxed vibe in the day, offers a good selection of food and drinks and has free wifi. It's also very lively at night and a great place to hang out if you want to meet people and play pool, darts etc. Most of the staff are also friendly, primarily those working... More
