“Rad place, good vibes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

We stumbled across this place by luck. The staff were amazing and very friendly. The rooftop bar is a seller. We spent very little time in our room due to being out and about and when we were at the hotel spent it up in the rooftop bar! Great vibe

I've stayed in a few places around Phnom Penh, but will only be using 11 Happy in the future. Good location, staff are friendly enough, the rooms are clean and the rooftop bar is a great place to relax and meet other people.

Room Tip: Rooms on lower floors are quieter (due to rooftop bar)

Get what u paid for, stayed for a couple night in dorm for 7$ within AC room. Great location for tourist also for party.
Rooftop is amazing, great music playing all night long, very friendly staff and helpful, 2 pool tables are available, few computers are for free to use, and TV. Kitchen close at 12-midnight, still if you have enough time, there is a movie house downstairs available too.
Am in love with this place, the best hostel so far I ever stayed in Asia.
Will come back and stay here again for sure.

Really huge guesthouse with a lot of turnover and a very cool rooftop bar so a good spot to meet fellow backpackers. Also in a good party location in PP! However, the room i stayed in was small and had no window (good if you wanna sleep late though). Not the cleanest i've seen either...

I spent 5 days in this hostel and feel in love with the place! I would highly recommend to anybody looking for accommodation to book into this Hostel. Staff extremely friendly, big clean dorms, great common area with two big pool tables with delicious food on offer.

This is the right hotel if you want to stay close the riversides and the night life.Is also close to the best things to see during the day in Phnom Penh.
The room is big and confotable and at the roof there is an amazing bar where you can relax seeing Phnom Penh from the top.
When i will come back in Phnom Penh I will come here again for sure!!!!

A great location with cheap, clean, big dorm. Even if it was a bit noisy in the night and construction-work at 6 a.m. Free towel and very good showers. Good place to meet people, and have a beer and some food at the amazing rooftop were they also have TV, pool table hammocks and wifi. The staff is good, but had some trouble with the laundry service because it wasn't finished when it was supposed to - and also I got some clothes back that wasn't mine. And when they arranged pick-up to the bus-station, it never came.
