Been to the Monkey both in Siem Reap and in Phnom Penh and both locations blew my expectations out of the water. I've now lived in Siem Reap for three months and the good times have only kept coming. As long as you're here to have a wicked time with your fellow travelers, you'll find nothing to complain about. The rooftop beach bar is next level and totally unique to any other place we found in Siem Reap. There's always a party going on here - beer pong, grenade challenges, sweet tunes, free shots, themed parties etc. But if you'd rather just hang out on the patio tables and have a wicked conversation with a random stranger, this place is just as much for you as it is the rowdy crowd. The staff is incredibly friendly and I was thoroughly impressed to find out that they enjoy better working conditions than almost any other establishment in Siem Reap. I personally don't mind paying a dollar for a beer where the staff are all smiling and well cared for than 50 cents somewhere else where the staff struggle to support themselves and their families (it's more common here than one might think). All the services they offer (tours, bus tickets, bike rentals, etc.) are top quality. You'll know exactly what you're getting for your money and you won;t be disappointed. Being an expat, I get asked all the time for recommendations on where to stay in Siem Reap or just go have a wicked night. This place is always on the list.

Beautiful Hostel with a great pool and two bars. If you want to relax after spending the day at the temples in the heat of the day, the Mad Monkey is perfect. But you have to like partying too, because that's what everyone does there. Beer pong at the rooftop bar and happy hour at the pool bar during the day. The rooms and facilities are clean and the shower is strong. If you want western food you can get it at the hostel, but the old market with local food is just 5-10 min by foot.
Had a great time here and can definitely recommend it!

I had such an awesome time at mad monkey! The rooms and bathroom facilities where nice and clean. The staff were super friendly and always there to help with any questions! In the day you can chill by the pool or on the big comfy sunbeds, and at night depending on what your after the rooftop bar is the place to be for either a few quiet ones or the start of a big night!! The sunrise trip to Angkor Wat was organised by mad monkey and quite honestly one of my best SE Asia experiences. If ever in Cambodia again there isn't anywhere else I'd rather stay!

Room Tip: Dorm rooms are the best to meet new people!!

Had a great time here. They get the party going every night and the chef cooks up delicious grub no matter if you're ordering Khymer or Western food. I'm not sure if the guy wearing the Georgia shirt is an owner or manager of sorts but loved talking football after a couple weeks on the road. SEC football rules.

They set up the place so you can have a good time seeing the sites, meeting like minded travellers, and going out on the town. Some people complain about music being too loud, but they shut down the bar at 12 in hopes people will hit the town so unless you're up very early it's not really an issue. A must for anyone looking for a fun, diverse time in Siem Reap.

The food was honestly so good, and the staff great too! 5/5 across the board.

Room Tip: If you care a lot about A/C book a private room.

Typical hostel - clean basic simple rooms and party atmosphere at night.

Cool bar at the top, and nice touch you get free drink. Music on till 12 until you go out. We went to Angkor sunrise one morning and needed a quiet night - people coming in shouting at 2am, but what do you expect.

Perfect for young alcohol craving backpacker.

The staff are friendly and helpful. The pool is clean and refreshing and the roof top bar provides an excellent source of entertainment. The manager, Brian can help guide you to anything you want to see or do. Overall its a party waiting for you to arrive. Cheers!!

We stayed at the hostel 4 nights. The hostel facility is great and staff is friendly. The food at the roof top bar is premium quality and even better than what you can find in oub street. The location is also great and you can book everything at the desk tour. The main issue of the hostel are the noisy part. Party till late night.. drunk and irrespectful guests that make noise loudly everywhere without being bothered by security or hotel management. So if you want to stay in a good shape on a daily basis to see Angkor starting from sunrise everyday don't come hear. You want manage to sleep more than 3hours at night at best. If you are looking to lay down close to the pool talk about house of cards and smallvile and get drunk early in the afternoon or step over a hot chick sleeping in the corridor at 5am that's the place to be and you will enjoy your stay

Dear Guest - thank you for your review. As you will see from all of our previous reviews most people have a great time here and we are one of the most highly rated hostels in Siem Reap. However at the time of your stay we did have one particularly noisy group of Chav's / louts / Boguns that we unfortunately had to throw out of the hostel due to their behavior.

I am very sorry that their behavior impacted your stay, this really is not the type of customer that frequents our hostel normally. In response to your review and the previous review we are stepping up the hostel security to ensure that when guests come back to the hostel they go to bed rather than keep on with the party. I am sure that you understand that as a hostel establishment in can be difficult for us to control which guests we give access to the facilities - but in this case we seem to have let the wrong people stay here. Thank you again for your review, please note that the people that stay here are normally really nice and considerate, i am sorry that this was not your experience. during your stay. Please do come back and try us again I am sure you will have a much better experience.
