Staying overnight in Phnom Penh before heading north, Mad Monkey provided 5-star service, safe and comfy accommodations (I recommend a double room with air-conditioning), fantastic food/drinks, and friendly atmosphere. My room was silent and was a good choice for a single female traveling alone. Staff are incredibly helpful and cheery and full of travel suggestions. Ideal location - can walk... More

If you're going to Phnom Penh this is the place you have to stay at. First of all the food here is so delicious, everything you order is like heaven.. Second of all, the atmosphere in the mad monkey is awesome! The staff, the guests, the rooftop bar with the beerpong table, the art on the walls, and I can... More

Excellent service, probably the best I've had this trip. The staff helped us with EVERYTHING. They also have a very good restaurant and a large variety of food on the menu. And the best place in phnom pen to start your big night out is with some beerpong in their rooftop sunset bar! Be sure to take a bazooka aswell... More

Lively hostel with friendly and helpful reception staff, and a lovely sunset rooftop bar. The rooms can be quite noisy as the doors are very thin so you can hear the restaurant, kitchen and bar which is fine if you want to go out and be social, but not great if you want an early night. Lovely rooms though and... More

Mad Monkey was sons intro into Cambodia and it was good. Clean room very friendly staff who were committed to helping to make people holiday enjoyable.

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
