I stayed in Happy Guesthouse for four nights because of its high ratings on Tripadvisor The room is big and affordable (USD11 per night for a room with air-conditioner, cable TV and hot shower). The bed is comfortable but unfortunately, the sheets and the pillows I got smelled kind of bad (as if they weren't dried or stored properly). They also had a few pale yellow stains on them. I don't know if I'm just unlucky or what because other guests never seemed to have this problem. The towel wasn't fresh-smelling either. Good thing I brought a spare towel with me. Honestly, these kind of turned me off but eventually I kind of got used to it.
However, the staff are very friendly and accommodating. The common area/restaurant is very cozy. The food ss good and very affordable. I really love their cheese omelets and yogurt shakes. I also appreciate the postal services (because I'm a fan of snail mail). The location is good (you can walk to Pub Street if the weather is not too hot) and there's also a mini-grocery nearby.
-Bring or buy mosquito repellent. The common area has a lot of them and I didn't notice this during my first night. I got more than 20 mosquito bites during the first night alone.
-They don't have bedroom slippers (I think being barefoot inside the house is the norm in Cambodia?) so if you're not used to walking barefoot on cold tiles, bring bedroom slippers.
