First of all; the rooftop bar is out of this world. Pool tables, plenty of lounging seats and lovely decorated with lights. Great people, friendly staff and an owner who enjoys mingling with his guests. I enjoyed the cinema as well. Lovely place to meet fellow travellers and to start or end your nights!

The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is situated in a great location that is within walking distance to many restaurants and bars. It has Flicks 2 movie theater next door and in general great value for money. I would definitely stay at 11 Happy Backpackers and recommend it to others.

The room is really basic but very big. And the cool thing is the movie theater Flicks 2 next door for when you want to do something else for a change. Wifi only in the rooftop bar... which gets a bit noisy for calling home. Good atmosphere among the staff. Food is also fine.

Great place, easy access to restaurants/bars and nightlife area, comfortable to stay. And there is a bar on the roof top which open until late night. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others.

Room was unfortunately bit small, dirty and smelled bad because of institutions. But the staff was very friendly. The location war good due to the many restaurants and bars and it is really next to royal palace, phnom wat, central market and monument. However, maybe spend some more money for a room with aircon.

I stayed a few times the last years in this GH. Very central, nice rooftop, simple rooms. But this time i was really disappointed. something went wrong with every order or were just forgotten. We also booked a bus from pp to bkk and although we made very clear which kind of bus we wanted to book they didn´t match... More

We stayed here for a night, bar staff were super friendly and have reasonable priced food (as well as the best iced coffees in Cambodia - can't find anywhere else with a decent one) and a good happy hour - 75c beers and 2x1 cocktails. Location is reasonable, lots if tuk tuks around - about $5-6 from the airport. Bathrooms... More

My friends and I really loved 11 Happy. It's a cute place situated near Riverside, could possibly have the best staff I've met on my travels. They were super friendly and helpful, never afraid to join in on the dance floor! Had some really great nights up on the roof top bar, either dancing or just chilling with some drinks!... More
