we stayed here for 2 nights and we really had a great experience specially during night time because it really offers awesome parties and we were able to meet cool people from other countries. we enjoyed the food and the beer. However during our first night, I was a little bit anxious because I find the place a little bit creepy, maybe because of its old dormitory ambiance, but on our second night i was ok then coz were transferred to a different room. Staffs were cool and helpful.
great staff great location great hostel
This chain (only stayed in the PP one) is exactly that. The place was clean and organised but the noise was atrocious. Also the amount of smoking in and around the hostel just was for us hard to deal with. Would not stay there again
Mad monkey in phnom penh is a fun party hostel! If you choose for this hostel expect to have at least a few drinks every night because it's about that. For while it lasted I had a great stay over there and even though I'm not the biggest partyer. The dorms are very clean and big. The staff is helpfull and always trying to get you in the mood! Read complaints about the loud music in the bar every night but that stops exactly at midnight, wich was more than ok for me! Mad monkey keep on rocking!
We had a room without any windows. Although, you are just looking for a room to put your head down at, so not much time is spent in the room. Happening upstairs bar. Good place for younger people!
No complaints at all. Super clean, comfortable rooms with huge beds. Good bar for socialising. Really friendly and helpful staff.
Couldn't provide a map for the area. Very sociable. Fairly clean. Very very loud, not much sleep!
great staff, very successful one-stop backpacker business which leads to often beehive like atmosphere; no free coffee/tea like in other good hostels (sic!), the very good but not inexpensive restaurant is very popular nonetheless, today´s backpackers obviously can afford such a place which fits well into upmarket Boeng Keng Kang I; excellent keg parties in the rooftop bar & lounge (free flow of draft beer for one hour) several times per week, also BBQ.
Great staff, very accomodating and helpful. Food was a bit pricey for the quality
Perfect place to stay, clean and good location with helpful staff. There is a bar if you want to party but the dorms are quiet if you don't feel like it.
Great hostel. Although a bit of a corporate feel, Mad Monkey has really nailed the whole hostel concept. Very clean rooms and beds, plenty of toilets and showers throughout the entire facility. Food at restaurant was actually very good although a bit on the expensive side. I did not book any tours through this hostel but it seemed as though booking anything would have been very easy through their well staffed reception area. Upstairs bar was cool if you're into partying.
Spacious private room which was great but the bed wasn't great (pretty springy). Air conditioning was wonderful. Staff were nice and the atmosphere was great. Would go back for sure.
The best mad monkey hostel I've stayed at! The staff were amazing, so nice and consistent throughout my time there! The bathrooms were cleaned every day and the beds were pretty comfortable. The only issue was the constitutions taking place started really early but this isn't the hostel fault but just be prepared for this. Other than that a I thoroughly enjoyed my time here!
Very much for the Backpacker but with the added twist of good private rooms for couples and so forth. At Pnomh Penh it's a split site with main reception and accomodation one side of the road and restaurant accomodation and bar on the other side of the road.Food in the restaurant bar was good although the menu was heavily biased towards western dishes. Nightly games in the upper bar catering to those who wanted to drink lots of beer and shots.Well organised supply of tuk-tuks. A well run place

Really fun hostel great atmopsphere. Clean and good facilities. Really good food in the restaurant but is a little expensive. Bar is really fun in the evening with events. But be careful with valuables in the street had my phone stolen by a motorbike whilst looking at a map!
Great place to meet fellow travelers! Staff is very friendly-always made you feel welcome.
Good hostel. The staff were very friendly and eager to help. Also enjoyed the restaurant and rooftop bar that created a fun social environment for everyone to hang out. My only complaint was the mattress, I could feel every spring in that thing and I was sore the next day in every place a spring was jabbing into my body. Most mattresses in Asia are hard but this was different.
Hostel was not very clean, toilet smells so bad. Difficult to approach the receptionist and they weren't very friendly when i have enquiries. Food are pricey, the value of this hostel is probably in its party environment which they host alot of cool events everyday, but still you pay a premium for it to meet people and party,
Good hostel overall. Good facilities, decent location. Great restaurant (pricey however) and and bar! Good place to meet other travelers.
