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.

We came for 2 nights in this place. I had booked a room by phone 2 days before arriving, asking for a quiet room with a double bed. We had a room with 2 single beds on the street side and just under the noisy rooftop bar..... hard to sleep... And the 2 nights were short because we also had...
