            Terrible”

            Booked it because it was cheap and we just needed a bed to sleep in. We were arriving late and leaving early so we didn’t need much. Was told to cancel my booking when I arrived because the beds weren’t ready for us. The place was filthy and even if the beds were ready, we wouldn’t have stayed. Even though they canceled on us, I’m screwed over and paying. Not too sad seeing $4 go but more upset that a place that’s run like this is receiving it. This place needs to be taken off Agoda.

            I didn't end up staying and I wouldn't call this a hostel! The apartment is full of dirt and rubbish with no blankets, no reception and the wortst facilities I saw in three years of travelling. Yes it's cheap but I would not stay there for free.

            Filthy, dirty and disgusting place DO NOT GO HERE”

            I have been traveling around the world for a few years, and I have to say that Vibol Happy House is one of the worst place where i have been staying (only for 1 night), I needed a cheap place so i could plan my trip in Cambodia, and 1 night was already way too much. Nothing is clean, butts of cigarets evrywhere on the ground, cans of soda everywhere on the ground, a rotten towel on the ground in the bathroom. The bead sheets were, well not clean at all, ants everywhere in the room i stayed. The peoples already living in here just want to be left alone, and make things so you don't want to stay. Anyway just don't even try to book here and even if it's cheap i don't think it's worth it. If the owner of the appartment is reading this, you should put everyone out and deep clean everything because in one year your appartment will be dead, rotten and unrentable. Colin S.

            I booked it first, and then I go to this hostel. cuz I saw picture and this is not bad. and mostly I don't really care about how good hostel is. I am the person who stay always cheapest dormitory. So I can accept it environment and facility really! but this hostel is... crazy!!!! I can not say the words. at this time, it was just day time. no staff, no receptionist, there were bangladesh men they are drinking and music party.... full of alcohol smell, but nobody control them, I just decided to throw out the money. don't pay first! go and see and then book it!

            Broken down, infested with Insects.”

            Came to the hostel and the door was closed. No receptionist or anyone to open the door. I had to wait 2 hours outside for owner to come and let me in. once inside the toilet sink was broken, full of water and blocked. The hostel is infested with insects, even the fridge! The fridge was turned off to be cleaned from insects, but I don't think any cleaning will take place soon. Other than all of that the place has a good shower!

            Strange”

            It's not really a hostel, it's somebody's apartment with bunk beds in it. The facilities are good (hot water, small kitchen for use) but often unclean with hair everywhere. The beds are in the commun room so difficult to sleep when people wake up, talk, cook their breakfast and eat at the table (kitchen, table, commun area with chairs AND beds are in the same room!!) Otherwise the security seems good as you use you fingerprint to get in the apartment. Location is close to bars, parks and restaurants, but if the "bar girls", "hookers" and other kind of prostitution doesn't interest you I suggest you find another neibourghood....

            Favorite month of 5 month Travels”

            So many things I liked about this specific hostel. First and foremost is the people I've met there. Because of the small size of the hostel it felt like we were a little family than random strangers. The owner seemed to always come by with bananas, cakes, or even a full Chinese meal with chicken and fruit to give to his guests. He really cultivated a friendly atmosphere talking with all the guests about any questions or tourist things they might want to see or where to find cheap meals and so forth. One of my favorite things was the bakery 150 feet away. It made warm fresh bread everyday and only for 800 riel or at 9 pm everyday they sell everything out for 50% off. Also, there's a market 100 feet away where you can buy fresh produce. I was able to live spending less than 4$ American on food per day. Another thing I miss is the balcony, first thing in the morning, going out and enjoying the cool breeze from the river. The river is only 200 feet away and it made the air quality fresh.

            Never met the staff”

            I didn't meet the manager the entire two days of my stay. Therefore I never got my finger print scanned into the door key system and always had to knock on the door and hope there is someone inside... This isn't really a hostel, it's an apartment turned into a dorm room. After reading the reviews saying it's the wrong address on maps.me and checking the pictures I didn't find it difficult to get there and find it. It was not really clean, but the location was alright and it's a cheap place to stay.

            Ok for a few nights”

            Central location next to a popular restaurant and pub street. Not really noisy at night. The major minus is the very humid and warm common room where the beds are also located. There are a few fans in the roof and a mobile one on the floor, but it doesnt really help much. Its like a humid sauna. Finding the place is easy using the photos in agoda. Reaching the owner, on the other hand, isnt. There is a whatsapp number on the wall outside, but he did noy reply. I was only lucky that there were other people already there. I would come back later if AC will be installed

            Probably the best dorm deal we ever had! It’s basicly a brand new, private apartment, with bathroom, a kitchen, big corner balcony and some bunk beads! Very hard to find, so make sure you have wifi and call the owner first. By the way Vibol - the owner is a great guy and will help you with everything and drop some knowlage about Phnom Penh If you ask him ;)
