Lovely guesthouse, the staff allways smilling and trying to help you. I book with them the tuk-tuk to Angkor and the bus to my next city and both was good and cheap. Cheap accommodation (really cheap!), cheap food, cheap drinks, nice restaurant under the sky. Free Wifi, satelital TV. Nothing bad to say. Thanks to the staff.

This is a great little lodge to stay in while you explore Siem Reap and Ankor Wat. Sit under the shaded area and have a beer and eat some very decent food while you watch the tv, or use the free internet and wifi, or arrange travel or tickets from the staff or Teddy, the nice tuk tuk driver who will take you all over Ankor for $15 per day or $7 per half day - which is half price compared to hiring a cab. The extremely clean, well appointed rooms are air conditioned and have decent channels in English, Cambodian or Korean. Finally, a cool Cambodian barbeque place is a 3 minute walk and will certainly give you an authentic dining experience for $3 - the locals will help you figure out how to do it. Overall, for less than $10 per day per person, a great place to be.

Originally we were supposed to stay here only few days but we ended up staying for 17 nights! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and the rooms are very clean. Cable tv, fresh towels and soap were an awesome extra. You can eat great food in the guest houses' own restaurant and the "lounge" is very cozy. Free wifi, games and books entertain you for hours. Special thanks to our amazing tuk tuk driver! All the drivers in here are honest and friendly - so I'd suggest to book the temple tours from here. We had an amazing time and we'll def come here again!

The name says it all; this place is run by the most welcoming (extended?) family who go out of their way to make you feel at home. They are extremely helpful with making onward travel plans and are very knowledgeable about things to do around Siem Reap. The rooms and bathrooms (ensuite) were very clean, and cleaned everyday. The beds were some of the comfiest I've slept in ever, and the rooms are really great value for the price. I will definitely stay here again if I return to Siem Reap.

The Happy guesthouse is a nice, clean guesthouse close to the center of Siem Reap. We arrived here from the bus station and had no clue about the prices. We are backpacking in Asia and try to live low budget. When we checked in we asked for a cheap room and were told they had some for 3 $ a night. One of the staff members showed us the room (nice and clean) and again confirmed that the room will cost 3 $ per night and not per person. So we spent our cash during the nnext couple of days and had enough money for the roomm food and drinks we had here. But when we wanted to pay, suddenly the room was 6 $ per night. Still cheap, but when u dont have the cash with u and u need to leave for your bus, kinda bad situation. The couple running the place got very upset on how we could expect that the room was only 3 $ a night. They called the staff in that showed us the room (poor guys, sorry again) and they had pay the difference. So we ended up paying 6 $ per night for every night but one night. We feel bad for the guy who had to come in, since he was off at the moment!!! still a nice guesthouse but the couple running it was really a pain in the ... when we said we wouldnt pay...So just watch out or maybe write it down to confirm when u check in!

Room Tip: Just make sure that u pay in the end what u have been told in the beginning! Our room had no Ac and...
