Love this place, wasn't expecting a party but definitely found one.. Great mix of people everyday and the staff are awesome. They have an English bar manager which definitely helps things run smooth. One of those places that 3 nights will not be enough! Also check out the circus here in Siem Reap, best experience in 6 weeks of travel!


Great spot, lots of fun!


I have stayed in more than 50 hostels around the world, and this is definitely one of the best i ve stayed MAD MONKEY THANKS!


Had a great time in this hostel - really social and friendly place. Easy to meet others at the pool or the rooftop bar. Both are great facilities to have onsite. Really close to pub street but not so close that it affects sleep. Food served is pretty good and not too expensive but as with everywhere else, it's always nice to go out and explore the eateries nearby.


This hostel was fantastic. Everyone stays here, great location, great value for money with the rooms, awesome rooftop sand bar for everyone to hang out, pool to relax during the day and walking distance to pub street.

This hostel has a good location and decent accommodations however, after spending months traveling, this staff was the least friendly and least helpful we have ever come across.

Had a great stay. Prompt action by staff on complaints and requests. Good common and room facilities and spacious room/bathroom (speaking for my ensuite single private room, that is). Superb location close to a lot of good places. Highly competitive rate for what you get.


Nice enough. Nice pool and poolside area. Bar upstairs is great. Head next door for food quarter of the price (though the food here is really good). Nice bed sort of chill out are a floor up from the pool if you don't fancy the bar. 12 bed dorm a little crammed. Lockers under beds. Beds nice and big. Could be cleaner, but okay. Staff helpful and lovely. Party hostel but after midnight you don't hear anything.


This joint is rockin.. Hit the roof top bar and smash down the grenades.. Great place to meet people!


I really enjoyed my stay at mad monkey. The hostel is really cool and has a great upstairs bar that was easy to meet other backpackers. Only complaint is the wifi was kinda spotty at times, but not too bad. I would definitely stay here again.


The hostel has a very fun vibe. The rooftop bar is a nice place to relax in the afternoon and party at night. The location is good, a few minutes walk to pub street and the night market. The room is clean. Another cool thing is, this hostel gives back to the people of Cambodia by funding education and clean water initiatives. There are cheaper places to stay though.


Fantastic hostel with amazing pool and clean facilities. Loved the bar and the location was great!


Awesome hostel..staff are great and very helpful. Easy to get to from the airport $8 tuk tuk maybe 30 min ride. Tours are great we definitely recommend the temple bike tour if you are active. Good prices at the restraunt and down the street from the market! Would stay at again for sure.


Absolutely the best place to stay in Siem Reap. Awesome atmosphere and its a great hostel chain because it gives money back to the communities.


Perfect hostel if you're looking to meet people and have some fun. I was travelling alone so it was great to meet people in the rooftop bar, it was the best night I had in Cambodia! Apart from the party, it's ideally located, very clean and comfortable for a hostel and has a really nice pool area to cool off. The only small tip I would give is that it won't be a peaceful stay, so don't choose Mad Monkey if that's what you want.


Amazing hostel with such a great vibe & easy to meet people. The upstairs bar is heaps of fun. The beds are nice & big & all have power outlets. The gorilla dorm never seemed to have toilet paper. I wouldn't trust the security guards. I got home one night & lost my bag... Only to find they had "found" it but there was no money left in it hmm. Anyway still would highly recommend!!!


Mad Monkey is a must! If you are staying in Siem Reap you have to stay here. It is clean and well priced. The atmosphere makes it perfect for making new friends and making the most of your time. Not to mention how amazing the staff is. Unfortunately when I showed up there was a mistake with my booking online. Understandably things happen and they were more than accommodating. They apologized endlessly and gave me my own beautiful private room. I will recommend this hostel to everyone.


Great pool, rooftop bar and staff. Lots of free shots, had a private room which was nice. Perfect for those who want a bit of a party, siem reap isn't too great for a night out so it's nice to have a cool bar at the hostel. Your allowed to use pool and bar even if you don't stay here so if I was to do it again I would stay in a cheaper place and then come and use the facilities!!


The Aqua Dorm is not a good spot to be if you don't like constant noise. I was in a 12 bed dorm right beside the pool so I heard every word of nearby people's conversations, as well as very loud music during the day. The pool is kind of crowded, but there are nice day beds on an upper level. Bar upstairs was nice. Staff very average. None of them particularly made me feel welcome or understood. Beds hard but clean. Good place if your number one priority is to be in the center of a party.


Great facilities! Pool to relax during the day and a rooftop bar to meet people at night. I definitely recommend stay here.
