Stayed at the hostel on 2 seperate occasions with 2 friends, definitely our favourite hostel out of our 3 months in South East Asia. Amazed by the kindness of all of the Mad Monkey Team. Enjoyed going to the local shopping mall with Sina Sun and Lun Raksmey. Also being taken for a night out by Samoun was another favourite memory! Will definitely recommend Mad Monkeys and a big thank you for all your help! Luke Morgan Jack Imms Ollie Clark

Great fun, loved the hostel. Only problem would have been pricey food but we ate out mostly, so it wasn't an issue! Thank you :)


Great hostel, very nice staff, and good food!


Fantastic place to stay, rooftop bar was an excellent way to meet other backpackers and have a few cheeky cocktails! Awesome atmosphere and the staff are really lovely! Definately coming back here :)


Great sized private room with a really nice bathroom setup. We really enjoyed the downstairs bar and restaurant and had two really yummy meals. The staff are super friendly and seem to love their jobs! Pretty busy if you're looking for somewhere quiet - but that's just testament to its popularity. I'd recommend booking ahead.


Fantastic hostel! Has pretty much everything you need if you're looking to meet some fun people and grab a couple drinks. Dorms are nice and spacey, and you have a huge locker that can fit just about anything you might be carrying on you. Only downside to this place is it's a little far from a lot of the other bars/nightlife scene if that's what you're looking for. But you just have to take a short tuk tuk ride, and you'll find what you're looking for.


Had a great time at Mad Monkey Phnom Penh, luckily I was in the hostel across the one with the bar otherwise it would have been noisy! Beds were amazing, big lockers, friendly staff.


Only stayed a night before moving to another hostel. I had booked a twelve or fourteen bed dorm but in reality it was 22 beds. Too many people coming or going to really be able to rest. Different staff members would give different answers to the same query. Better hostels available for the same price.
