Nice rooms but bar staff were not friendly and the rooftop was very humid and they did not let us outside. Siem reap mad monkeys is much much nicer
Very nice hostel, with a great atmosphere. We spent christmas here and they threw us a christmas lunch which was also really nice. My only complaint would be that the dorm we were in had plastic bed coverings which made it very noisy to move around at night. But i know other rooms did not have the coverings. All in all it was a nice place to stay.
I only stayed one night here in the basic double bed room but it was absolute quality. Bar was good, restaurant was nice and the wifi was decent. The reception was across the road but when I checked out, they had luggage storage which was handy.
Breakfast here is quite expensive,staffs are very friendly,good location
Great hostel with great staff. We had a private room which was very big and clean with a good shower. The rooftop bar is a good place to start the night with a nice atmosphere. The restaurant also does lovely food!
We were a group of 4 in a quad room. Our room was located in the opposite building to the club - which we were grateful for, however if you want the social atmosphere the opposite building is definately the one to go for. Clean room and helpful staff. It is quite a trek to get to the riverside though so keep this in mind!
It is pretty famous hostel in phnom penh. Nice and kind staffs, colorful interior drawings are my favorite. But sometimes rooftop bars are too loud even after midnight. So you should consider it. But, it is a little isolated, hard to find other bars or restaurants.
Don't go here if you like it to be quiet. Due to the rooftop bar it can be noisy around midnight. After that, it's silent :) Room was spacious, clean and we had a nice bathroom (double bed private ensuite). Staff was ok, not very pro active in helping but ok. Breakfast is nice. We have had greater value for money during our trip.
Great place to meet people! Hostel was clean and worth the price we paid although the aircon in our private double room wasn't great and neither was the wifi. They close the bar at 11pm so you can still get a decent night sleep. Over all we enjoyed our stay at Mad Monkey
Jaffer and the bar staff really make your nights out. It is the place to be 100% if you are up for a party. The room was standard but in terms of food, tours and other things to do they have everything a traveller would need. My only recommendation would be to put more staff on reception as they are always too busy.
Very large and comfortable beds and cold aircon. Mad Monkey hostels are always a safe choice, nice restaurant too
Stayed only one night, absolutely loved it though. Did not enjoy Phnom Penh, but this hostel made up for it. The sunset bar is a great place to meet people and have a great night, the staff were awesome! Like I said I stayed only one night, but the staff treat you as their friend not a guest! Clean and comfortable, a very good hostel.
We didn't actually stay here in the end, but didn't charge us for our mistake which was very nice of them considering most hostels normally do! We have stayed in Mad Monkey in Kampot and we ended loving it there, all in all stayed 4 nights with them so the company its self is a really good one they know how to accommodate travellers thats for sure! Also we are a couple travelling and it cost us just the same price to stay in a private room as it would in a dorm.
Although we slept above the bar, the sound wasn't a problem at all. Clean, basic rooms.
Awesome fun place. Pool, bar, rooftop area. Very social. A bit outside the town so scooters are recommended to get around. Food is good.
Very nice hostel with great staff and atmosphere. Can get a bit loud if you're in certain rooms but they clear everyone out of the bar before 12 so there shouldn't be any major problems. Tiny bit pricier than other places but it's only a few dollars, nothing major
Definitely a party hostel, but was just perfect. Rooms were spacious (mixed dorm) with lockers under the bed. The rooms were very clean! From your room, you can't even hear the music from the rooftop bar. Location isn't great, there's practically no authentic food anywhere around the hostel. The hostel's restaurant was decent but food took about 45 mins to get to your table. Tuk Tuks available outside the hostel to go to the killing fields, just make sure you bargain for a good price.
Amazing food! Massive beds and so comfortable! Wicked party on one of the nights. Mad monkey full stop all day everyday!!!
We were here for a short period of time, but the staff was very helpful when there. We booked our bus ticket to leave through them and that was nice. The private rooms are nice, and fairly quiet considering the proximity to the roof bar. We weren't partying but this would be a fun hostel to party at. One thing we wished was that office staff was available before 7am and food was available before then. You can't book tickets or order food before 7 so you can't start your day.
Good food (although a little on the western price side) staff alright, sometimes abit busy on their phones. Beds spacious, good locker space. Rooms big and staff always in cleaning in there. Good showers, they are just in the same place as the toilet! Bar was good and a good place to meet people!!
