This was a really fun hostel to stay in if you enjoy partying and drinking . Not if you don't as you will get hassled! Lovely pool area and nice rooftop bar - even if the sand does get a little irritating ! Close to markets and pub street. Rooms were ok. Super comfy beds!! The only big downfall was that the water smelt stagnant . Not good for showers. But overall a good place to stay.

Not a bad hostel but felt like a big frat house when I was there. Not my cup of tea
Mad Monkey is absolutely the right place to go if you want to have a party in Siem Reap. Awesome facilities, close to pretty much everything in Siem Reap, always filled with loads of people looking to have fun. Plus the personell is great with very good English. Cleaning was the only drawback, as it was not very thorough, and also as it consisted of the cleaners barging into the room at 7am, talking loudly to each other regardless of people sleeping in the room. Besides that, all was great.
The Mad Monkey was the best hostel I have ever stayed in, hands down. The entirety of the staff are incredible, including the cooks who produce amazing food. So easy to meet other travellers, especially as a solo traveller. They have amazing tours and trips planned, and most importantly an amazing bar and social atmosphere with $1 beer. Stay here please, whatever you do!
I think this is more of a party hostel and not what I was looking for.
I absolutely loved this place after being recommended by some friends in Thailand. I travelled there alone and made loads of good friends and had such a fun time i was gutted to leave and kept adding a few nights! Rooms are basic and the showers could be better. Main flaw was that the top bunks in the dorm are WAY too close to the ceiling, im.short and kept bumping my head. So get a bottom bunk if possible! Bar, pool and staff are amazing and can book tours. Super sociable, STAY HERE!!!
Great for backpackers, atmosphere, bar, pool everything great. Rooms could do with a bit of updating particularly bathrooms

The rooftop bar was great fun! And the pool is great to use on a hot day!
Me and mates had the best time here, great party place to stay. We booked an additional 4nights cause didn't want to leave- Ever! Met so many great kool people and made some new friends. Rooms are lovely and clean and is a brand new pool that is ace to chill round, there is a fab roof top beach bar with sand and hammock, great to go and get your night started before heading to pub street. Food in restaurant is gorg and overall it made our stay in Siem Reap THE BEST-deffo recommend Mad Monkey x

Lovely pool, great roof top bar.. what more do you need!
While hot in Siem Reap it's great to have a pool, really nice roof top bar/restaurant, lot of fun to stay there, allways something happening.
A party hostel that mainly offers activities including drinking and unfortunately are not really inviting people to go and meet the locals or even to see the city when this one offers so much. The atmosphere is that of a party hostel, very nice and welcoming young people who you can hear blaring out even from some dorms until midnight although coming from the rooftop. Very friendly staff.
Best hostel of my trip so far. Great vibe, great pool, nice beach bar, great location.
I almost didn't leave the hostel it is so nice. Amazing pool, great rooftop bar serving food and movies during the day but great party atmosphere in the evening. Really close to pub street for food and partying. I went out on the mountain bikes to parts of Angkor wat where there weren't tourists. Got super muddy and had a great time, with beer and noodles after.
I had an outstanding time here initially I was meant to be here for 3nights but turned into 6.Staff are excellent, great craic in the beach bar upstairs grenade challenge.very easy to chill out and get talking to everyone and meet people. Plenty things get organised aswell including booze cruise in the reservoir, mountain bike trek to through the temples, BBQ, pool party etc. The 6 bed dorm I was in was great, big beds and rooms cleaned everyday. If u are going to Siem Reap u have to stay here.
this hostel has everything: a pool, if you want a place to relax, a rooftop beachbar, which is the place to party, excellent food, great stuff an tons of other travellers - one of the best hostels i have ever been! rooms are clean and come with fan or ac, prices are reasonable, only the food is a little bit expensive - but worth it.
I had my own room and was good for what I needed. The hostel is down a path away from the main road which I liked. The rooftop bar is great! Good atmosphere and great way to meet other travellers.
make no mistake, this is a party hostel. If you want to party you'll have a Great night. If you want an early night so you can get up for the sunrise at Angkor Wat you'll have a horrible night, so choose dorm/ private room carefully
this a great hostel in a really good location for both the temples of angkor and the old town. the hostel is very clean and secure, the service and food is great and there's a lively social scene at the rooftop beach bar and the pool bar with plenty of organised excursions and activities. all in all on of the best hostels that i've ever stayed in!! a big thanks to the whole mad monkey team, and a definite 'book'!
Walking distance to pub street, night market, and national museum. Several reasonably priced food places just around the corner. Food at the bar WAY overpriced for Cambodia, except the coffee. 6 person dorm was cleaner and much more pleasant than 12 person dorm, which had malfunctioning shower and barely any head room on top bunk. Great sociable hostel overall. Helpful staff with good English, lots of activities always being planned/going on.
