The Mad Monkey hostel is more than a place to sleep, exactly what I will try to explain in a minute. What's clear though is that this is a very friendly place with great staff, clean rooms and a perfect place to meet fellow backpackers. A bit off the center of Phnom Penh the Mad Monkey is still close to... More

We have been recommending this guest house/ hostel to everyone since we first stayed there in 2012 and returning this year we were pleased to experience the same 5 star treatment as 2years ago. The friendliest, most helpful staff greeted us with a much needed cold drink... More

Stayed in private room with private bathroom, very noisy, cold water, leaking tap on bathroom floor with mould, hard to keep toilet paper dry due to bath set up, rooms were cold with only 1 sheet provided. Asked for assistance booking bus to Vietnam, staff said to come back in a couple of days as it was too confusing to... More

Dear customer, We have checked with our front office staff, the bus company that you wanted to make the booking with will only accept bookings 24 hours before departure, this was explained to you at the time although I apologize that this was not made clear. I am afraid that the hostel was fully booked when you needed the extra... More

Had a wonderful stay at Mad Monkey. LOVE the villa room and room #7 had so much personality with the local artworks on the wall; it's unlike any hostel room I've stayed in: both rooms were clean and spacious. Food is deliciously filling (has that homecooked-goodness quality) and have generous portions, the beers are cheap, the tour partnerships were a... More

Such an awesome place to say for cheap. Feel very safe here didn't mind leaving our valuables in our room. The staff made it though, the bar staff in the roof top bar are characters. The best barman ever! Defiantly recommend this hostel to any travellers, young and old.
