I enjoyed my stay at Happy Guest House. It's convenient, within walking distance to Pub, Night Market and shopping areas. The hostel operators made a mistake with my reservation but fixed it even before I got there so it was not a big deal. (But I didn't like the hostel where they put me though.) My room was large considering I only spent maybe 7 hours a day in it and has excellent working AC. No kitchen to use; but, hey, who'd cook if you can buy delicious and very cheap food outside?
Thank you very much. You help me a lot about the trip plan. Especially thank for Koeun and Ra. I have a happy trip in Siem Reap and Happy guest house.

Tuk Tuk driver is friendly. about 15-25 minutes walk to "Town".....depends on one's speed. There is a whole stretch of guest house along the road.....the road is really "rocky".....really need some repair for this short stretch of road. Workers are friendly too.....
The staff was very cordial and polite. They have onsite "tour" people that can help you arrange for transportation and can help get you around town. Rooms were clean and new towels were provided each time we asked. Location is very close to the main market area (10 minute walk).
In Siem Reap, there really aren't many bad places since it is mostly hotels and hostels and getting around by tuk tuk is cheap and convenient. Staff was awesome and the facilities were good based on the condition of the country as a whole. Restaurants and shopping are pretty close and Angkor Wat is a short ride away as well.
I really loved it at happy guesthouse! Can't wait to go back to Siem Reap and stay there again! :) I met a lot of nice people and the staff was so friendly en helpfull!
The staff there was super nice and helpful. i stayed in a single room but pretty dirty as i saw some insects on the walls. no table or desk is available in the room. it is like 11 use per night so i expected a service and quality of room better than this one! Also,my friend stayed in double bed room on the ground floor which has many insects every day and night which was so disgusting and she moved to another hotel afterwards.
Cons: bedbugs, tiny room with no chair or anything, wc door would not close and in wc a hole in the roof and some mosquies in room so not happy about the room. props: otherwise good\great hostel, great outside area and bar, good, affordable food, travelservices and mostly friendly faces. No kitchen,fridge etc but to be expected.
Personally, the most impressive aspects are food and staffs. Food served here is really great in quality, taste and price. Regarding staffs, the receptionists are knowledgable and nice. So feel free to ask them anything you concern. The Tuk-tuk driver is really gentle and honest. The only weak point I can think about is only the location. It takes around 20minutes walk from Old market and Pub street. Walking back to the guesthouse alone at night is not recommended.
Would definitely stay here again! Staff were very friendly and helpful, and this is probably one of the best value-for-your-money deals I've ever found anywhere. Strong wifi connection. The only downside is the location: a little out of the way, and right next to another guesthouse that (one of the nights I was there) had live music until late at night, making it hard to sleep. Also, I wouldn't eat in the restaurant there - the food is overpriced and not that good.
almost everything is perfect in happy ! good and cheap food ! 10min away from pub street, the staff and tuktuks are really friendly,the common area is very good for solo travellers, clean rooms, good facilities ! my only problem was that everyday i came back late from pub street around 4am and all the times the door man took really to long to wake up and open the gates... like 15mins
Very nice place! Walking distance to the center, in a nice street with many guesthouses. The staff is very nice and helpful and the common area is a very nice place to hang out.
They picked us up from the bus station late at night for free and then gave us the same tutu driver throughout our entire stay, so we really got to know him. overall, great experience and a great value for the money considering how much we paid (we stayed in a private twin). the food we ordered from them was also quite good.
Far exceeded my expectations. Great place to stay with an extraordinarily friendly staff who'll help you out with pretty much anything you might need.
- Cleanliness of bathroom should be improved, the air-con waste water is just dripping down to the bathroom floor, and to my feet! - Staffs are friendly and helpful! - Shoes should be allowed indoor, we don't like to leave them public overnight
Very friendly and nice. Special note: they have selected tuktuk drivers with reasonable fixed price who will bring you where you want, not to the shop where they get their tip!

Frontdesk is very knowledgeable. Overly hospitable. Friendly. Warm staff.
Very nice place with very good atmosphera, good food and cheaper with differents opcions, the people very nice to, finally i stay for 2 weeks and was the best opcion... Good place to meat more travels
The rooms were big, clean, and had a nice atmosphere. Staff was very friendly and helped us arrange a tuk tuk to Angkor Wat starting at 12 usd per day. Food was good and inexpensive and laundry was 1 usd per kilo. Good ac kept us cool at night. We had a great stay here and I will remember it as as one of the best hostels in south east Asia. My only complaint is it is a 15 minute walk to downtown, or a 1-2 dollar tuk tuk ride depending on your bargaining.
