Getting endoscopy at at 11:30AM, how long without eating and drinking water the night before?

Nothing after midnight. You should have been given instructions.

the hospital would tell you that.. but generally you need to stop eating at midnight the night before.. you are allowed liquids, eg cup of tea in the morning though

It's not as bad as the other end.

They should have told you that. You should also be doing bowel prep which typically involves taking large doses of a laxative and something like magnesium sulfate (sometimes they do not require this for an EGD, only for a colonoscopy, but they often perform both).
Did you not get prep instructions???
