Good place to stayed as the dorms are cleaned and beds made daily,the staff are very friendly and the food in the restaurant is quite good where it has a lot of choices on the menu for western and khmer food.


Mad monkey was a pretty good place to stay- close to the city centre. My friend and I shared a twin room (bunkbeds) with an ensuite which was very basic. The door didn't close properly so we always held it closed with a pair of shoes. We found lots of bugs, mainly cockroaches (possibly more so b/c we were on the ground floor.) It was noisy in the mornings b/c we were right next to reception. The food at the restaurant was amazing!, and so was the aircon. Good for younger travellers

Pretty good hostel except for the fact that in the dorm upstairs next to the bar there are no windows!


Had a great time here. Great way to meet people. Staff very helpful. Clean rooms


An extremely fun and vibrant hostel. All of the staff are fantastic people and incredibly kind. The bar upstairs is great, though it closes quite early (11 PM). Overall, a pleasant experience.


A really fun place to stay. It is a party hostel but the privates are very quiet if you want a good sleep.


Great hostel for groups and solo travellers :)

Great hostel. Clean and with good staff. It has a good bar and restaurant and its easy to meet people. Seems slightly out of the way. The doors to the toilet wouldn't shut which made for some interesting moments. Recommend staying here!


Great party hostel with a lively rooftop. The heavy guy on reception was a bit weird/eccentric and made people uneasy. Also, he told us a specific coach would bring us on our journey and even showed us a picture; a mini-van brought us.


This is good place to stay. There are not too many options in Phnom Penh. The staff are excellent and the food in the restaurant is very good.


Mad monkey was the best hostel I stayed at in Cambodia. The staff made my stay an enjoyable experience.


The restaurant staff were smiling and enthusiastic every day. The food was wonderful. The room was spotless. There was no street noise and it was an easy Tuk Tuk ride to the riverfront and other points of interest. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the philosophy of what the owners and staff are doing for the area and local people.


Really enjoyed stay at this hostel. Dorm was very clean with air con and ensuite shower. Shame need own padlock for lockers. Great rooftop bar with nightly pub crawl. Food very good in restaraunt downstairs. Handy to have ATM on site too.
