I stayed at the Mad Monkey Hostel in both Phnom Penh and Siem Reap and I highly recommend this hostel to young backpackers who want to visit the city as well as have some fun – full of young people, nice bar, helpful and friendly staff, clean rooms.

Mad monkeys isn't your ordinary hostel. It is a hostel that cares for the local community. It has a great price/quality ratio. Activities are being held by the awesome staff of mad monkeys. It has a nice pool and a lovely sun terrace. And it has the most exquisite food you'll ever have in South East Asia. I'd especially would...

Amazing staff, I had a fantastic time in Siemp Reap, thanks for all the staff, legends, heroes who saved my life feeding me with beers. Special thanks to Rose, PA (who kept put the Cambodian song that I love it), Ponlork, Sopheak and Rotha.

Good hostel great young crowd full of all different types of backpackers. Has a lovely swimming pool and rooftop bar. Good is pretty good and beers are only $1. The beds were spacious but pretty hard and the room was full of flies. The cleaner did give us fly spray which kills them but they didn't sweep them away so...

Had such a great time staying here when we went to Siem Reap for 5 days. Close proximity to the temples and the night markets. Jade was especially helpful showing us around and taking us out at nights!

A nice hostel with amazing staff. Swimmingpool, sandbar and clean rooms/toilets. A great athmosphere and it's very easy too meet new people specially for those who traveling alone. Different activities every night and free shots at the bar. Only downside is that I love breakfast which was not included but otherwise it was amazing!

I would give more stars, if there only wouldnt be fleas at all damn hostel. They wont go away, if you spray only one room, the whole building should be sprayed or something. Allthough, nice staff and atmosphere. But wasnt a nice surprise the bugs. Much trouble. :(

Interesting crowd...... Think we could've done better in siem reap for cheaper! Private rooms are super expensive. Bar games were quite fun, and the location is good. Just expected much more for my dollar, like other places in Cambodia
