We stayed there 4 people, great hostel! Very good value for money, central location, and sweet staff. Their restaurant makes very good food as well. We met a lot of other young people there, and you can easily spend a couple of hours ind their bar ;-)

We spent the last few nights in Asia in Phnom Penh and as I was feeling tired and sick I might have had a different impression of this place otherwise. The rooms were clean and lived up to the expected standard of a hostel in South East Asia. Since we were about to go home and I was sick we... More

I've stayed with Mad Monkey in Siem Reap, Kampot and now Phnom Penh, they are all excellent value for money, clean dorms with comfortable beds, each bed has a power point and reading light. The rooftop bar is a great place to meet people. The thing that really makes Mad Monkey such an enjoyable place to stay is without doubt... More

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

The mad monkey, in Phnom Penh, is without doubt THE BEST hostel I have ever stayed in, The prices were similar but the quality far exceeds anywhere else I have stayed. When we first arrived, we were met by Sothea at the front desk and I knew straight away we were going to have an enjoyable stay. All staff and... 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

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...
