Great if you are travelling in a group or on your own. If you want to meet people and have some great parties each night this is the place you (as are the other mad monkey hostels). Good location. Very helpful staff who will organise trips to various tourist attractions upon request.

We stayed in a private suite with a private bathroom and it was just as good as a hotel. The vibe was great and the food here is incredible. The staff were always helpful and polite, and there was always a tuk tuk driver waiting outside to take you where you needed to go.

We have used this hostel as our hub each time we have had to stop at Phnom Penh. It's a great place, the rooms are really clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and so helpful. It's a really fun place to stay and meet new people - bar is loud at night but closes at 11.30 pm so it's...

Funky hostel, good pool to chill By. The sunset bar is really fun, good cocktails and was packed both nights we were there. The cafe is yummy. And the staff super friendly. We had a private twin room. It was noisy till midnight then from 6am. And the sheets feel a little like a shell suit. Not the best place...

We stayed here for 2 nights in a 12 bed dorm. Everyone was so helpful and welcoming, and so well organised. The common area really creates great vibes with the pool, bar and all the lovely young backpackers. Great location too. Would definitely stay here again, and would happily stay in any other Mad Monkey hostel after this experience.

We stayed in a 12 bed dorm and had a great time. It was so cheap, clean, and good location. Great vibe with lovely people. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Pool was great, so was the restaurant. Best backpacking hostel I've stayed in yet

Mad Monkey is a nice enough hostel and is very convenient to many places you would want to visit in Phnom Penh. The noise from the rooftop bar can be a bit much after dark and most of the travelers here skew towards the younger side. If you like to party, this may be your spot. Food at the restaurant...

Thanks for staying with us and writing a review, Jesse! We do close the rooftop bar right at midnight every night, so that everyone who wants to get a good sleep can do so. We're glad you enjoyed our food so much, and appreciated our great location. Enjoy the rest of your trip; we'd love to see you again soon!

We stayed here for 4 nights and it was an exceptional hostel with extremely friendly staff. We are annoyed we didn't book other Mad Monkey hostels as they are so good. The pool area is really nice with chilled music throughout the day and also the bar and party area at night is very social and a lot of fun....
