Welcome to the Mad Monkey Hostels Tours. During the day visit the Mad Monkey and jump on one of our Tuk Tuk tours out to the killing fields and S21, pay a fair price for your tour to the Tuk Tuk driver for a half day tour of both facilities. Then join us for dinner and then at night time do something positive. Then in the evening do something positive by attending our crawl for School event. The Crawl for School is a weekly pub crawl designed for young tourists and backpackers. Wrist bands cost $5 and provide you half priced drinks all night, 100% of your $5 wristband is used to fund education projects for poor kids in Cambodia. The event starts at the Mad Monkey rooftop bar in Phnom Penh every Thursday night, then hits Top Banana and Love Bar. It is great night out and a great way to donate to kids education in Cambodia. Tuk Tuk tour of the killing fields $12 - $15 (Depending on number of people) Eat at The Mad Monkey restaurant wide menu with prices starting between $4 and $10 per plate. Cocktails at our rooftop bar! Join the party and buy a wrist band from $5 per person.

Killing fields Well presented tour with free headphones supplied in several languages. It tells the story straight. You really have to decide if it is a tourist attraction to make money, or aiming to tell the world of the atrocities and try and ensure they do not happen again. Very graphical and descriptive.....prepare to be shocked. S21 museum Disspapointing. It... More

Like visiting the sites of the concentration camps in Europe, one may feel a bit awkward about being here on a vacation. But it is a reminder of what we allow to happen and many of us only feel bad/sorrowful about it. There is not much to see at the nearby to Phnom Penh killing fields, one of many around... More

We hired a tuktuk for the day from the street outside our hostel, which cost $15, and then he took us to s21 and the KF. I believe it was $6 to enter each, and the KF included an audio guide in various languages. The booklet guide at s21 was $3 but the place needs some investment on the exhibits... More

I had heard so much about the school and read about it in the 70s when I lived in England. The terrible conditions that these poor people had to endure makes you realise how lucky you are. It is on 2floors and on view are the beds with the old spring mattresses where the prisoners were strapped to while they... More

This tour rocked my world, and the world of the group of 12 that visited in Sep 2010. No matter how many things you've seen, good or bad, this will open your eyes to the depths of depravity we are willing to reach as a human race. We must make the decision to love every day. A trip here is... More

We used a tuk tuk from the front of mad monkeys hostel in street 302. Cost $16 US for 4 hours to visit Killing fields and S21. Entrance fee $6 each for Killing field and $3 each for S21. The audio supplied at Killing field was excellent. Allow 2 hours there, it should not be rushed. S21 you can buy... More

This is a must see sight in Phnom Penh. You will understand more about this country from the actual fact that happened behind these stories. Moreover, all this killing history just happened not that long ago, (thirty - fourty years ago) some old people who went through this are even still alive. The audio tour definitely helps you understand more.... More

For me this is probably the most important thing you should do while visiting Cambodia, sure it's an intense look at the countries history but it explains so much. The audio tour is perfect, providing enough information and allowing you to go at your own pace. Not knowing the details of the genocide I'm so sooo glad I visited the... More

With the horrific recent history of Cambodia you simply cannot skip going here and to S21. its unimaginable what happened here and seeing almost doesn't make you believe it. But unfortunately its true.
