Don't come there now (May 2015) there are works just next to the dorms. All day long starting very early in the morning. The staff is very stressful, asking you to book for a few days because they might not have a bed available for the next days (come on guys, that's low season!). Both bathrooms were very stinky. We...

Really great spacious and cool dorms, amazing staff and a great bar! The food downstairs is amazing, especially the breakfast. Thanks so much to all the staff at the mad monkey I absolutely loved it. Would recommend anyone to stay at the mad monkey if you are visiting Phnom Penh, it was absolutely perfect!

Awesome hostel, really big comfortable beds with good air con in the rooms. The food in the restaurant was top notch with Khmer staff really friendly and helpful. Try the BBQ if it's on too! Awesome bar upstairs with events on every night!

Great place to stay. Good rooms and great food. Located in a good area of the city as well. Designated tuk tuk drivers for the hostel mean you will not be ripped off. Good amenities and onward travel arranged. Cheers guys

Stayed here for two days. Didn't have much fun as compared to Siem Reap MadMonkeys. Nothing bad though, still a cool place to be. Two days was too short, spent 12 hours bus ride from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh, and slept the whole day once arrived. Visited a couple of tourist attraction areas at Phnom Penh on 2nd day.... More

Good value for money, rooms were nice and clean, beds were comfortable. The NZ bartender was really helpful and made the BBQ night fun, drinking games etc. Relatively close to the city so easy to Tuk Tuk around. No complaints.

If you like to sleep early be sure to get a bed in the main building where the reception is, in the other one is a loud roof-top bar, fun place but very hot. This is the only mad monkey without a pool, that's why i would go to another hostel the next time.

The staff are super friendly and chatty there is always something fun going on and it's really easy to meet other travelers! Would not stay anywhere else in Phnom Penh!! It is a party hostel so be prepared for loud music but it stops at midnight.

I know this place have a plenty of nice reviews, and that's the reason why we decided to visit it and stay there. We came (me and my friend) and asked for a room. The reception man said to us that the room will be available in 30 minutes because it's been cleaned, and they don't want to show us... More

A friend and I went backpacking through Cambodia and Thailand and stayed here for a couple of days. The service was excellent and the rooms were clean. We met a lot of great people and made lots of good friends. Would definitely stay here again!
