I'm not sure how this place finds the balance between hosting a raging party ever night and also keeping the facilities impeccably clean. I passed on the party, although the noise made it seem like the party was in my room. Earplugs are a must if you plan on going to bed before midnight. The staff is very friendly and... More

This is a great party hostel, it's big with a bar that is very busy at night. Lots of opportunities to meet people and go out. The rooms are big and clean. Bathrooms and clean and showers are hot. Staff are very friendly and helpful and speak great English. There are always tuk tuk drivers waiting outside as well which... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write us review. We always advertise online that we are a party hostel and our price per dorm bed. We make sure that our standards are higher than the rest of our competitors. We wished you should have done more research before booking so that you won't feel that you may... More

Was sick half the time I was here after over-doing it while travelling in South East Asia but still had a great time! Rooms a bit small and air con was AWFUL! Shower was bit crappy too. Very clean though, so arty and food is great. Wide range of food and great if you want a break from South East... More

Stayed at mad monkey in Phnom Penh after staying in the Siem reap mad monkey and was not disappointed. The level of drinking and partying was definitely held up high thanks to Aurora, Monica and Sue. Rooms and everything about this hostel is awesome!

This place came really highly recommended and their website is great, proper easy to book. My friend and I stayed in a bunk bed room with an en suite which is on the bottom floor right near reception. Room was nice and the en suite was clean and had everything. The restaurant down the road was also really good. Good... More

We came for the brightly coloured stairs/artwork, and ended up staying through til the early hours of the morning. Amazing place to watch the sunset over the city and enjoy happy hour cocktails. Really great food, particularly the burgers. Very friendly staff and a great atmosphere/crowd in to the night. Will definitely be back for more beer-pong!

Changed hostels half way through my stay in Phnom Penh to Mad Monkey Hostel and probably was up there as one of the best decisions of my trip. Aurora is amazing gets everyone into drinking games and talking. Great for solo travellers and groups

The hostel is in a good location. The staff are very helpful and nice. I booked a 6 room female dorm and the room was located at another location, across the road. The restaurant whips up good food as well. They seem to have a party night every night and so it can get a little noisy if your room... More

The accommodation is absolutely amazing! The decoration is so much fun and very colourful. The rooms are comfortable, welcoming and clean. The overall highlight is the wonderful staff!!! They give a great personality to this hostel. The friendliest people you will meet in Cambodia. They act like family and will accept you as such. Highly recommended!

Good hostel, big dorms with big double beds. Top bunks are way up of the ground and getting down is a bit of a chore but they are big and wide. Also the dorm really has like 20 people in it with 2 bathrooms which can get a bit hectic. If your on the top floor dorm be warned as... More
