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 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...

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!...

Stayed here one night. Staff are really friendly. Rooms very basic and not great bathrooms but rates are cheap so get what you pay for. Loads of stairs to walk up but which is hard with backpacks. Wifi not in rooms only in bar. The only thing attracted us to the place is the rooftop bar with good drinks, music...

Affordable ($8 for a double with bathroom) and close to where the buses drop you off. Quite noisy, especially on the top floor. Food was average. They rent bicycles, have a laundry service and book buses etc.

I come here every time I'm in Cambodia!!! It is filled with the friendliest staff, with a fabulous place to chill out at the rooftop bar. Definitely recommend for those backpackers on a small budget looking for a great time!
