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.
