My dataset looks like this:

Depen  Indep1 Indep2 Indep3
 1       1      1     Continous
 2       0      2
 3       1      3
 1       0      4
 2       1      1
 3       0      2

So as you can see I have an ordinal dependent variable with three categories, and one ordinal independent variable with four categories, I have one binary variable and one continuos variable. Can I run an ordinal logistic regression?(Depn ~ Indep1+Indep2+Indep3)

If not an ordinal logistic regression then which other models do you recommend?

You can run an ordinal logistic regression with this setup as you have described. Interpreting ordinal logistic regression is not straightforward, so ensure you have a good resource for that.

If you don't want to assume that Depen is ordinal or you are unsure of its true order, you can run a multinomial logistic regression.
