Stayed for a couple of nights and really enjoyed my time. The owner Jasper is a great guy that i enjoyed interacting with. The rooftop is awesome and the parties there can get pretty crazy (in a good way). The locations is also perfect as its close to the riverside. Oh and i almost forgot, the movie room, super awesome!!!... More

Honestly I havent had as bad an experience as the other submitters, but this hostel does suck. Ive been in some worse ones that Ive given better reviews on this trip. The music on the roof is bad and unbelieveably loud. But they got us our Vietnamese Visas for $2 more than the embassy, which was a deal since it... More

My girlfriend and I arrived at 11 happy backpackers from sihanoukVille and were greeted by warm friendly staff especially Deedee and Sammy who were so polite and helpful. Our room was spacious with a nice breeze and fan. The rooftop bar was big and relaxed with 2 pool tables, good food and chilled music. Would recommend this to anyone looking... More

We stayed here twice, the first time was fine. Our room was okay, especially for 8 bucks a night. So we decided to stay again when we were back in Phnom Penh, but our second room (214) was horrible. It was really small, dark and so unbelievably hot. We are not people that expect luxury or require air con but... More

I ve had a great time in this place! Originally I was meant to stay for 5 days and I ended up staying nearly three weeks. It has been funny to meet few other backpackers who did exactly the same thing =) The location is central (5 min walking from the riverside and 10 min from the Royal Palace), rooms... More

The best place we stayed through our 3 month journey in Asia. We loved the staff and they really made us feel like we were at home. And it really is the best rooftop bar in PP! Really worth a visit and we are definitely coming back!

If you like the combination of cheap beer, pool and alot of other backpackers, 11 happy is the only place you have to go to! In the daytime when you are... More
