From the moment we walked in to the reception we were welcomed into the MM family! We came back 3 more separate times whilst traveling up and down Cambodia! The days are chilled and the nights are as crazy as you want them to be! Themed nights are great and it really is a great place to meet people! The... More

We had such a fun 3 days here. It's not the most convenient (we were 3 flights of stairs up and across the road) BUT ace time largely created by the 1 & only Paula behind the bar. She made every night THE night to be at Mad Monkey and included everyone. The pool was such a good hangover cure... More

Had a great 3 nights at this hostel. The rooms are large with comfy beds and two showers per dorm. Great to relax by the pool and meet other travellers before heading across the road to the bar. I saw a few reviews commenting on the price. Yes it's not the cheapest, and they don't claim to be. It's still... More

This Mad Monkey is wonderful, it's so huge (2 separate buildings) but impressively clean! I had a great time with all the bar events at night (the BBQ on Thursdays can't be missed!). The staff are seriously amazing; Sam and Tina you two are some of the friendliest people I have ever met in my life. Anyone looking to party... More

The staff at this hostel were absolutely amazing during my stay here. Paula and rob couldn't do enough for me and made sure there was always a fun atmosphere around the hostel.

Had a great time at mad monkeys, even though they stuffed our private room booking for the first night, they made up by giving us a dorm room free of charge for the night. Private rooms were comfy and clean, pool was nice and clean and the food was great as well. Staff was very helpful and the location is... More

The hostels are famous for the party crowd and one gets to enjoy a lot if they are travelling to Phnom Penh for partying. If you are looking for a great backpacking experience, better look out for other hostels. The place is good and they have individual lockers. The staff is helpful.

Dear Sunil, Everywhere online and offline, we always have a reminder that we are a backpacker slash party hostel. We make sure at the same time the bar is closed when midnight comes. However, it is no longer our control if some guests would be hyper active given the fact that they have drank a little. For guests like you... More

Stayed here with a friend after arriving from Vietnam. Very easy hostel to find as its the most popular in town. The hostel was clean and had ensuite bathrooms (2 in each room). The staff were very helpful at organising buses and tours and the buses they arranged were fantastic. They also had one of these downloading movies services onsite.... More

Thanks for your review Amy. We are pleased you had a blast is always good! Sometimes its the guest that ensures that they have a good time just as much as the staff and you were an awesome guest!
