This hostel, centrally located, is perfect to meet people and to party. The atmosphere is very nice and the food is excellent. The common area is spacious and well-decorated and we had a very good time, even if we were not into parties. The shared bathrooms are not very clean, but it is something to be expected when you share... More

I had an absolute killer stay at mad monkey. The staff are extremely helpful, and all the girls in the restaurant are lovely. Food was a treat after being in Asia for so long. The rooftop bar goes off, make sure to get involved with a few bazookas! It's located in a super clean and quiet neighborhood and a short... More

After spending 6 nights at this hostel, I can truly say it is one of the best hostels I've stayed in, it has a nice restaurant and an awesome bar, everyone is friendly (staff and guests) and you will have a good time. My brother and I stayed in a private room and it was nice, private shower and toilet.... More

Overdue review – A friend and I stayed in the villa double room on our first night; it was spacious and moderately clean. Absolutely worth what we paid and for those who want to stay in a party hostel yet need down time the villa is perfect. The restaurant and the bar is across the road, the prices are reasonable...

Mad Monkey's rooms were clean and comfortable. It was easy to book tours through the ticket office. The cafe served a great breakfast and the location was excellent. The bar is a fun place to meet other travellers and I highly recommend the bazooka challenge. However, the staff at reception were unfriendly and never accepted any of our US Dollars... More

We booked this hostel because of all the loving comments on this website, but it was definitely not worth the price. First the people at the reception are lovely people, but they talk more to each other then to you. After we reached our room, we noticed that the bin was still full with toilet paper, but hey that can... More

Dear Guest, I am sorry your room was not up to scratch, had you told us about it at the time we could have rectified it. The room that you were in has been closed and fumigated today as a direct result of your review. You were staying in the bottom layer rooms near the kitchen and downstairs gate, so... More

Very clean dorms and bathrooms, exceptionally helpful/ friendly staff and they do great (but pricey) food! Try their chicken nuggets if your missing English food! We had friends that stayed in a private room and said it was smelly and had a spring coming out of their bed, whereas our 12 bed dorm was clean, tidy and very comfortable. They... More

This hostel is several dollars a night over standard rates, and lacking even television. The upstairs bar blasts disco music from 10 am to 4 a,m so sleep is impossible- absolutely insane.HIGHLY overpriced, no hot water, no tv, no sleep, food is awful. Daylight gun robberies- completely unsafe and just not ok.

As someone that has been in Phnom Penh for five years I have never seen one daylight robbery and I have never seen our bar at Mad Monkey open past 1am (special occasions) and 11:30 pm normally. I hope you find some peace with yourself. Have a fantastic trip around Asia - you certainly look as though you are enjoying... More

Very clean, affordable and comfortable hostel! We really enjoyed our stay here and wish we could have stayed longer. Had a fantastic dinner and was very impressed with the service and hospitality. We will definitely stay here again and recommend this place to anyone traveling to Phenom Penh!
