The rooftop bar was a great place to sit and chill and it served the best burger I ate in all of SE Asia! However when I headed to bed (on the floor below the rooftop bar) the music was still pumping and it took earplugs and sleeping tablets to get to sleep! The lower rooms were quieter but make...

We arrived at Phnom Penh during the first water festival in 4 years with no where to stay, luckily for us we were on a bus with a friend of ours who knew someone working at this hostel. We were really glad that we decided to tag along! Clean rooms (we stayed in a private room) and the roof top... More

A group of 13 of us went on an expedition to Cambodia and Vietnam with school. 11 Happy was the only hostel we booked before heading out. When I first saw the rooms, I was a little apprehensive but then I remembered the price and I realised it was fantastic value for money. It is great for backpackers and travellers... More

The rooms were quite small, clean and inexpensive ... I stayed in a double room ... on the first night the water was hot and lasted long enough for two showers ... on the second night it was warm and barely lasted a few minutes. The location is very good: close to nearby markets and only 5 minute walk to... More

I stayed here 2 times during my stay in Cambodians although the decor in the rooms isn't the nicest and some don't have windows its clean and a nice place to stay! I arrived late at night and went to the roof top bar which was very busy and a lot of stairs to get to the top but the... More

Amazing rooftop bar so much space and everyone working there was so nice and helpful! I smashed my iPhone and sam drove me around looking for the cheapest place to get it fixed which he did! Dorms are big but very comfy! Not a crazy party hostel but it's just what you need!

This is definitly a great place to meet people for drinking and partying. You hear people come back from drinking around 4 or 5 and making noise. So if you're looking for a nice place to rest, you should go find somewhere else.The dorm room is huge with 15 or 20 beds (can't recall), but only two small bathrooms for... More

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
