On site lively bar is a plus. Location is not the most central, but pretty good and safe. Restaurant is good, although not a lot of choices within 5-10 min walking. Personal minor bad experience was that one of the Staff was not too proactive(or lack the knowledge) on providing info on travel method in which they didn't get a commission. I had to ask them to inquire for me. Even then I got a weak response. Overall, mad monkey(phnom Penh) is a big party hostel with tons of packaged tours.
"Excellent" across the board. Common area is easy enough for meeting other people, however not atmosphere is not intended for crazy party's if that was your intention.
Overall a great place. Since this hostel is pretty new, it hasn't received a lot of reviews yet. I took a leap of faith, and its excellent place for the price. Location is awesome if you intend to take the ferry with seatran dicovery or flying out of airport the next day. Its nice and clean. The staff's English is not too bad and they are helpful. Therefore, if you need something done, its not too frustrating to have them sort it out for you.
