All the staff from cleaners to reception were super helpful and friendly. I believe the management assist an encourage non English speaking staff to learn English. It appears that most enjoy working there and that shows through with the way they interact with guests. I would suggest possibly a guest notice board where guest can leave messages for others and possibly seek a travel partner for taxis temple tours etc, many solo backpackers on a tight budget would find this helpful.
Came here just after MM in Phnom Pehn. This time had double room, was very dark and the lock on bathroom door didnt work but clean and comfortable. Food was excellent and wait staff so friendly. The biggest let down was reception staff, no personality,1 lady in particular was so hard to approach,threw constant dirty looks and rolled her eyes when asked anything. Askes for extra bedsheet as it was cold with aircon and she seemed livid we even asked. Need hospitality training from their wait staff
Great place to stay, very social, awesome pool area and sand bar upstairs. Food is really good, rooms are clean and easy to walk around city from there. All round great place to stay!
Very social! Amazing roof terrace bar an pool, great for meeting new people :)
Great spot only 2 minute took took ride to pub street (the main area with bars and food) Pool and Roof top bar is awesome with beer pong and friendly events manager. Only downside: It was impossible to shower as the water barely ran (came out like fine mist) so if your ok with that then go for gold! P.s watch your shoes at the roof top bar as mine were stollen
Amazing rooftop bar with a very lively backpacker contingent. Rooms are clean and staff are helpful. Can't ask for much more.
had a great time here ,safe hostel and friendly staff .great pool,bar and bar food
This hostel definitely has a lot going on and is a great place to meet new friends. All in all, this was the best hostel I stayed in during my whole stay in Southeast Asia. The rooftop bar is a can't miss. It gives a great vantage point of Siem Reap and it has great vibes. This is definitely a party hostel though so if you are looking for something more quiet, I would go elsewhere.
I stayed in a Superior Twin & En suite for $20-25 per night. MM is great if you want to party HARD. I'd stayed at the MM in Phnom Penh and had a comfortable time there but the Siem Reap MM is for serious partiers (not that there's anything wrong with that, just be aware that that seems like the only objective of most of those who stay there). If the words 'cultural(?) booze cruise' sound like your thing, then this is your place! The room price is up there in comparison to others in the area.
A really great place to stay if you're looking for fun. The pool is a great place to relax and meet people, and the rooftop beach bar is pretty cool too. Happened to meet one of the owners there too, a real gent!
Rooftop bar is awesome, food is surprisingly good. A lot of backpackers so even if you get stuck in a single room, you're bound to meet people. Pool/pool area is sweet too. Definite party vibe here but not too crazy (bar closes at 12).

Great rooftop bar, stayed in the 6 bed deluxe dorm which was perfect as we were just sleeping here. There seemed to be only 1 socket in the room which was a pain as everyone needed to charge their phones but apart from that it was fine. Also has a pool and lounge are which was nice. They usually have daily events like a beer pong tournament or poolside BBQ which are good fun too. Would gladly stay here again
Everything is fine but our room just painted, it really smells. I have to wear my mask while sleeping. That's quite ridiculous.
Really nice bar upstairs and very social atmosphere. Only downside was that booking tours through the hostel cost so much more than booking exactly the same thing locally.
Had a great stay at Mad Monkey! The pool was good and the upstairs bar meant really easy to meet people. quiter during the day to have chill time and party at night. Close to pub street. The staff were very friendly and helpful! the room were clean and you have individual lockers for security. Showers could have been a bit cleaner but not really an issue!
General experience was good, staff spoke English well and were very helpful in booking tours and bus trips. Dorm room had big beds and was spacious. The triple room was a little cramped though. Bathroom was also dirty. There seemed to be permanent stains on the bowl and there were hair strands on the bathroom wall and rice on the trash can when we checked in.

One of our favourite hostels of the trip. Not at all down to the facilities in the rooms (beds, showers and lockers weren't the best) but rather the excellent atmosphere, great rooftop bar and a great location. Would recommend it to anyone wanting the backpackers experience, but maybe not to those who just want a calm and quiet stay.
Very much a 'party hostel' so was really good place to meet people. Pool was a bit gross and some of the staff weren't overly helpful but clean dorms and good location.
Great social hostel in the heart of Siem Reap. Offer a variety of tours including an informative Tuktuk tour of Angkor Watt. Rooftop bar is a great place to grab a bite to eat and to start your night out before walking into town. Rooms are clean and bathroom facilities are ok. Nice pool area and a great place to meet people.
Great rooftop bar! Lots of great tours and of course a swimming pool for when you want to relax !
