If you´re planing to drink from dusk till dawn, this hostel is perfect for you. If you´re looking for a good sleep night, don´t even bother coming close to this hostel. Bed are hard, the bathrooms have a funky smell and a really bad Wi-Fi connection is almost constant in this hostel. Check-in is at 14:00 pm and they will...

Reviewed 3 February 2017 via mobile

We stayed here for 4 nights and it was an exceptional hostel with extremely friendly staff. We are annoyed we didn't book other Mad Monkey hostels as they are so good. The pool area is really nice with chilled music throughout the day and also the bar and party area at night is very social and a lot of fun....

I stayed at the Mad Monkey for 4 nights. Room: I had a double room with fan and AC. Very clean room and comfortable bed. The stairs going up towards the private rooms from the bar made me feel uncomfortable, I'm surprised I didn't fall. Two bathrooms round the corner from my room that were both adequate. WiFi was great....

This is a great place to stay in Phnom Penh, a good lively bar on the top floor which finishes at 12. Great food down stairs in the restaurant and we rented bikes there also to head to the killing fields worked perfectly. All in all a great place to stay.

The Mad Monkey offers everything one is looking for in Phnom Penh. What blew me away was the wonderful staff! Everybody is very friendly and welcoming and the staff definitely looks out for everyone. They have their own tuk tuks and inform their guests about Phnom Penh and where to go...always looking out for the best of their guests. I...

Mad Monkey Hostel is the ultimate hostel. It is in a great location for the city, and feels really safe amongst the chaos of Phnom Penh. The hostel employs its own tuc tuc drivers in the day times and has a partnership with a police officer in the evenings for safety. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate us...

Stayed 1 night in the female dorm last week. Very clean and air conditioned with a nice mirror and private bathroom. Was above bar/eating area but not very noisy. Staff is friendly and helpful and the food (particularly the BLT bagel) was amazing! Will stay again!

Nice hostel when you're looking for a place to meet people. Didn't like it that much myself though, not that I don't like party, but the crowd is very young and they have only one goal in mind... drinking at the hostel. Location is a bit crap, out of the main center (not even close to the pp night live)....

Thanks for the review. It seems that you ended up in the wrong hostel given your preferences, because creating a great environment for travellers to meet each other is definitely our goal - we're probably not the place for you if you're looking for some solo down-time. BKK1, our neighbourhood, has attracted a lot of development and therefore some brands...
