Pretty good. Will go again.


The classic backpacker bar/hostel. Clean dorm rooms, young, helpful staff, sandy floor rooftop bar, ice block cooled pool. It's like Melrose Place for backpackers, not a quiet hostel, music doesn't turn off until midnight.


Hello, My stay was okay. The showers were a bit rubbish. The hostel was very good for socialising but i think it all depends on your character. A lot of drinking which is good if you like that kind of thing. Pool was fun and always full of people. I would give it 6/10

Rooftop bar, nice swimming pool, and great food (get the BBQ chicken and bacon wrap). Don't stay anywhere else.


Best hostel I've ever stayed in. Just wanted to work there it was that good of a vibe!!


Great place to party. I am not a party person but after the bar closed at midnight it was better. Like the other Mad Monkey in Phnom Pehn, they promote alcohol consumption yet have rules about inappropriate behaviour and charge a fee for those who get sick. Mixed messages all around.


This place will be the nicest hostel in Siem Reap you will find! I was very impressed with the friendly staff, cleanliness, (soap wash of bean bags by the pool, consistently wiping sand off tables at the bar, cleaning of fronts of countertops - very detailed), maintenance/upkeep (repainting of walls and raking of sand at rooftop bar), security guard at night, availability of well-mannered Tuk-Tuk drivers, and highly effective AC. The food at the bar is amazing. Ate there at least once a day!


Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, the pool and rooftop bar were a great place to chill out and meet people. Food was pretty good as well. Would definitely stay again


Very lively hostel, good roof top bar and they throw some good themed nights. Dont expect any sleep though this is definately a party hostel, music loud and every night untill the early hours. Room wasnt overly clean, but not overly dirty either, towels smelt like stale sweat. Good location 5 minute walk from bars and resturants.


One of the best hostels I ever stayed in! Awesome facilities, huge comfortable beds, very clean, great atmosphere, everything you need is there!


Great place. Wish I was back on the rooftop beach bar right now. :)


This gotta be the coolest hostel to be in! Thumbs up roof top sandy beach bar houses all backpackers under one roof for mingling and much fun! Will definitely come back here when I visit Siem Reap again!


Great facility, locatoon and staff. Food is excellent and even better than some restaurants in siem reap. However it is more a party hostel with lot of youngsters more interested in getting drunk rather than visiting Angkor temple. We had very short nights due to the noise at the roof top bar. If you plan to do a lot of sunrise visit better avoid.


Good value for money and stone throw away from pub street and near to many eateries. They organise events each night. Personally felt Mad Monkey Phnom Penh was better in terms of atmosphere and friendliness of staff but overall this is good place to stay for 1-2 nights or if you are backpacker / with group of friends. Recommended.


Great hostel, very clean and very friendly staff!


Awesome hostel you are running. Coming from the Phnom Penh hostel where the staff were super friendly to this one where they are a tad more abrupt and harsh but still ok. We did have one night at the Banana bar where our food took 1hour 30 mins to come out :/ But apart from that wicked


By far the nicest hostel ive ever been to. Very clean and in the best location. Staff are helpful and helped me with staying extra nights, renting bikes, trips and coaches etc. great swimming pool which is a definitely luxury at a hostel! Rooftop bar with activities all the time and just nice ass people! The only place I'd stay if I came back to Cambodia. You won't regret your stay here :)


Excellent location, cool roof top bar, great food!


This is a great hostel for a diverse crowd. We are married in our 30s and it was nice for us as its clean, good location and affordable with a nice rooftop bar/restaurant, but also a good spot for younger travelers looking to be social.
