Great atmosphere and second Mad monkey I stayed at, the staff are great, Tina is an asset to the team too! :) Thanks for a great couple of nights!
Nice hostel in a safe area, kinda the western part of town (there is a Costa's around the corner) that has a fun bar that isn't too much fratness to deal with.
Really good sociable hostel Staff all young so get involved in the partying But they are also good with helping you and giving advice Stayed here twice because really enjoyed it Close to restaurants and clubs ect Has its own bar good for pre drinks Only thing was bathroom flooded a lot and wasnt the nicest bathroom but overall a good social hostel
I liked that party vibe of the hostel as I went with the intention to meet people. Dorms were clean and beds were comfortable. Could have done with more of an area to chill out apart from the bar or restaurant. Overall pretty happy with stay
The Mad Monkey is a cool place to stay. Many cool backpackers stay there, so it is easy to make friends. The Mad Monkey has a bar and restaurant. Although the menu is a little more pricey than competitors, the food tends to be excellent. The staff are friendly too.
They didn't get my email asking to switch the dates of my booking. Stayed here through sheer luck!
We had a really good time at Mad Monkey. It was my birthday and we had so much fun at the rooftop bar. The dorms are clean and the beds are huge which is really nice. The food at the restaurant is really overpriced but the quesadilla's are nice.
Great place for meeting new people, the staff work perfect, rooms are very clean, has a restaurant and varied food. Disputes the fact that it's very far from everything.. But usually you take a tuk tuk tour from the hostel. At evening there is a rooftop bar.
AC did not work very well. Staff not helpful. Bar and hangout area very nice. Food was pretty good. Some of the sites are pretty walkable from hostel.
Amazing restaurant but fairly pricy for Cambodia, very modern and clean hostel. Great bar. Rooms are comfortable
Pretty loud party hostel. If you're in the mood to party then it's a great place. I got the stomach flu during my stay here so the noices from the upstairs bar were pretty miserable. They all shut down by 12pm but still expect a little bit of noice
Nice facilities and good food, easy to meet people. A little outside of the center of the city though
The social atmosphere at Mad Monkey is great, it is easy to meet people at the restaurant and bar. I stayed at the jungle dorm, which is next to the bar - but because this dorm is made up of different components and I stayed in the one furthest away from the bar, there was no nuisance whatsoever. The restaurant and tickets are pricey though and there are no good local food alternatives in the direct neighbourhood, so be prepared to walk a little further.
I love mad monkey hostels, but my dorm room was right underneath the bar and the drinking games people were playing were incredibly loud because they were banging on the table and it was rattling the ceiling. Also, a shelf by the bed would be nice.
Have stayed at a few other mad monkey hostels and they are always very good. Clean rooms, lively bar, lots of information. Would definelty stay again.
Great hostel. One young girl changing bed sheets of checked out beds etc really let the team down though - huffing and puffing at us because we were in the room during the day?! even though we were huddled on one occupied bed so no hinderance to her at all. Shouting saying she "needs to work" even opening the doors and turning off the air con to make it too hot for us. I wonder why she wanted us out the room so badly? Strange. She needs customer service training. Everything else was perfect.
It's a party hostel, so don't expect to get much sleep. Especially when people are coming in late, after drinking. Opening the lockers under the beds is really noisy. The food at the restaurant is good though, albeit a bit pricy.
The mad monkeys are probably the best hostels I've ever stayed in, brilliant facilities, staff and people! Phnom Penh could only be improved with a swimming pool..
Such a cool hostel. The staff in the restaurant are so funny and really friendly! The food was amazing and the dorms were always lovely and cold!
Mad Monkey is a fantastic hostel. With a restaurant downstairs with great food to the "rooftop" bar upstairs with a great vibe. It's a great place to meet people when you're a solo traveller. The staff are also super friendly and always having a laugh.
