Excellent experience staying here. The staff were great and its a really well run hostel. The bar is a good place to meet others (as usual) and the food is lovely too! Plenty of drinking spots near as well!

Stayed here for five nights and loved it. The 12 bed dorm was so big and spacious; clean with air con and hot showers. The food is quite expensive but you can be guaranteed it is all amazing. We've found it hard to get nice Western food and it was such a dream to get nice red wine and lasagne!... More

This is a good place to stay if you want to meet other backpackers, but it was really noisy the one night I stayed. I got a room in the hall directly above the upstairs bar area, and could hear everything in the room. The people across the hall were also quite rowdy. Besides that, everything was clean, and the...

A great hostel with super friendly staff, fairly new rooms and bathrooms and very very social!!!!! If you are on the rooftop side be aware that it is noisy but they do clear everyone out by 1130. Very helpful with anything you may need!!! Had so much fun can't wait to visit again

This is by far the best hostel in Phnom Penh if you are looking to drink, play beer pong and enjoy boozy nights out. Upon arrival we received 2 free drink tokens, later followed the bar crawl (well organised by reps) through the town and even rode down to the club in a tuk tuk they paid for! Seriously good... More

I had a great time at Mad Monkey. The staff were nice and helpful, the beds were comfortable, and the bar was fun! I was robbed of all my things, passport, money, cards, phone when I was crossing the street from the restaurant to reception... I was a complete mess, so ladies especially... watch your belongings! The staff were compassionate... More

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for your kind review. I am very sorry that your stay was marred by a theft on the street, as it approaches Khmer New Year there is an increase in petty theft and bag snatching like every big city, we implement extra security at these times of year but as with any big metropolitan...

The Mad Monkey is one of the best hostels in south east Asia. It's cheap, kept very clean, the staff are friendly, there is a great bar across the road (also mad monkey building) where you can drink cheap beer and meet other travellers (maybe even a bazooka). The only downside is that the bar closes at 11:30 and you... More

Arrived at the Mad Monkey after a 10 hour bus journey. Was met by some rude reception staff especially the man. He clearly does not enjoy his job. A girl then came in crying after she had just been mugged (her passport was stolen) the man told her to calm down and then made fun of her for crying. It... More

Dear Miss, Thank you very much for your review. In this case you were certainly incorrect in your observation. The lady that had her bag snatched had her bag taken some way away from the hostel, she had been staying with us some time and is well known to us. The staff were quite simply trying to cheer her up,... More
