The restaurant do great food for a good price (western and local). There are fun events every night at the upstairs sunset bar, including... More

Stayed at all the Mad monkeys in Cambodia and each was as good as expected and better. Beds are huge and very comfortable, pool was great fun and the restaurant made really nice affordable food. Nightlife has to be its forte though, as the bar really came alive. Me and friends arrived on the night that they held the mad... More

Excellent hostel! It has got a awesome atmosphere, people are friendly and the parties in the roof bar are so fun! If you just want to relax and chill out, during the day you can enjoy the swimming pool and have some beers (which are cheap as well). Staying in Mad Monkey is the best option!

Hostel was great. Awesome vibes, clean and comfortable dorms - beds are really large for bunks. Pool was a massive plus. Restaurant and bar were also really good. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Would definitely recommend this hostel.

Had a really great time here, spending nights in a dorm and private room. Rooms are tidy, staff is friendly, the restaurant offers a great variety of dishes, which all tasted great. But noisy before 00:00, but this sound indicates the presence of fun and a good party, where you can easily meet up with new people from all over... More
