Quality party hostel. Two bars and rooms are still extremely quiet. Pa the bartender is the man.


Party hostel, but you can still sleep. Rooftop bar and bar at the pool! Nice to meet new people! They organize s lot in thr nights. It's 5-10 min walk from the Pub street. You can arrange a. Toek toek for 20 dollar total for siem reap (20 min drive). Beds are comfortable and it's clean.


Good ambience for young people(very young crowd). The bed has an uncomfortable plastic protection,the shower is old with low water pressure. Staff is nice but I tried to book a taxi to the airport and asked me for 12$, when I mentioned that the fixed price is 7$ they offered me the same service for 10$, still not a good deal. You won't t get any recommendations for restaurants outside the hotel,the food in there is good but if you want to eat out, use google recommendations or lonely planet

Excellent location, pool, rooftop bar, atmosphere etc. Only I didn't see any lockers and feel they should have been more responsive to my email enquiry after I forgot some clothes on the bed, which strange enough housekeeping couldn't trace. Still recommended!


It is most definitely the biggest party hostel I've ever been, during the day it's great to hang by the pool and am every night therei s a party on the rooftop beach bar(every night different theme). Staff however, was not always that helpful, and even kind of rude when I asked for some help. They will take your stuff if you are accidentally late for check out, not cool. And the water from the shower+sink smelt like iron?! Location was great and loved the pool!


The guy at the front desk has no personality and seems a little rude. Pat is the man


Party hostel in Siem Reap with a nice swimming pool. Bed in dorm are OK and room is large enough for turning around. Reception staff is quite disappointing, very poor english and not very friendly to help.


Same as other mad monkey hostels, great for partying and meeting other travellers! Pool is bonus and rooftop beach bar (with actual sand) is good, usual things going on every night. Great food as always if expensive compared to eating at local places but convenient and good so we ate there pretty much every meal! Prepare to pay more than other places but it's worth it if you're looking to meet other people and party!


Awesome stay. The pool was a so refreshing after a long day of templing. The staff was so patient and helpful and friendly. Rooms were great, comfy. Overall great. Tom the tuktuk driver is the cats meow!

not as much of a party hostel as people say, you have the option of both partying or relaxing. an excellent hostel hands down


Absolutely loved this hostel. Met amazing people I continued to travel with throughout Cambodia. Great atmosphere, awesome bar and pool, great drinking themes each night. My room didn't have wifi, but wifi was great everywhere else. Highly recommend this hostel if you are wanting to meet people and party.


The atmosphere here is very social and a lot of fun. The rooftop bar is always a blast and an easy place to meet people, and it serves very good western and local food. Reception was helpful in setting up day trips. The showers were hot and the a/c was cold, always a plus. The rooms were comfortable, though a little dirty. It's a short walk to pub street for nighttime fun. It doesn't really quiet down until midnight, so plan on being up until then each night.


If you are looking a party hostel, this is the place to go. You will make friends easy and they have a pub crawl every night and a good restaurant. Its everything you want from a hostel.


Fun top-floor sand bar, nice big pool, fun vibe


One of worst stay in my south Asian trip. Bedsheet was dirty, private room was tiny, no escalator, hot shower was not working, room was too humidate and had bugs or mosquitos bit me to death. checked out after one night short stay. If only consider the part feel, then ok to noon it.


Fantastic hostel!! The pool is a great way to cool off though just wish it was open a little later but no biggy. Rooftop bar is amazing! Good vibe and party hostel so if your looking for a chill vibe this one isn't for you! Great people working there and great like minded travelers met. Would definitely recommend!


This place is great for people looking to party. The pool area is ideal for lazy hangover days but can be annoying if your room is close as it gets quite noisy! The bar staff upstairs are awesome, especially Pat and Luke (bar manager)!


The mad monkey is a great hostel, in a great city! Although it's a bit party hostel, and some crazy things happen in the dorms, it's also the place where other travelers are going for a beer in the evenings. The bar is really nice with sand and a good athmosphere, and after 12 o'clock most people go to town. The pub street is about 10 min walking away. I met some really nice people there, and have good memories about it. Only downside is that the bathroom is quite basic.


Very social, party-filled atmosphere. Great pool, great lounge area, and decent bar/restaurant on the top floor. Lots of encouragement to drink and make spring-break decisions, regardless of season. Lots of fun to be had. Dorm bed had a lamp, a locker, and a socket. Overall-solid place to stay.


Definitely a party hostel. Bathrooms are not the most private rooms and are located within the Dorm rooms, not fully sealed. The staff arent the kindest as they are used to dealing with young drunken tourists. The rooftop bar is good fun, however it also means a night off will not result in an early night.
