Mad Monkey Hostel Phnom Penh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Nice clean rooms with AC and hot water, wifi for free, european toilets, towels, 2 bottles of water included in room, very helpful and nice staff (some of them have still some problems with understanding english;), great food (especially hamburgers), good location 5 min from city center. Should be your place to stay in PP, one of the best hostels i've ever been to!

This was such a friendly place and had a great laid back atmosphere about it. Great for solo travellers and first timers as well as people who like to party (but it's not centred around that). One of the best hostels I've stayed at in Southeast Asia but the only downside is they don't provide towels I don't think which most other hostels at the same price have.

The Mad Monkey.. Where do i begin?! I actually ended up spending 3 weeks at this guesthouse as work took me to Phnom Penh. Even by the end of the first week it felt like home - the staff care about their customers and each other as if they were their own family, and they treat the guest house as if it were their home. The rooms and bathrooms were beautifully cleaned every day, the food was incredible, the bar was always in full swing and nothing was ever a problem. I met some awesome people while staying at Mad Monkey too, which is always an added bonus!! Thankyou all so much...

Staff are probably the most friendly bunch of people i have met on my trip, a really cool and swanky rooftop roof bar. The food is above average and the pub crawl that the hostel runs helps to pay poor kiddies school fees. I will be back - Stay here is you can. Ads

Clean, tidy and busy hostel. Great place to meet fellow travellers in the upstairs bar. However, travellers tend to eat in the in house restaurant and price of food is reflected by this and was overpriced.

location was relatively central but need to get tuk tuks to most places including the riverside.

I enjoyed my time at Mad Monkey and made some great friends there. The staff was amazing and the beds were huge. The food was great though quite expensive. There were some cheap places with great food nearby. My only complaint would be the AC in the big dorm. It didn't work well enough for the space and everyone in the main area of the room,especially those on the top bunk, complained. (They may have fixed this). The other thing was the bar was stifling, but that's the weather!:-)

Room Tip: The big dorm was great for meeting people but maybe check whether the AC was fixed!
