Price was far too high for what you receive. Rooms were crammed, with each bed being extremely close together. Beds didn’t have curtains, and were not very comfortable. It is quite a walk from the main walking street. Atmosphere was very poor for a mad monkey. Consisted of a few people sitting around a table playing cards, and that was at best. Only positive part of my stay here was the staff were friendly. I don’t recommend staying here if you are looking for the “mad monkey” kind of vibe.

I thought it was a really poor hostel. It tried to be a “social hostel” but it was the total opposite. This is the second mad monkey I’ve stayed in and apart from the name, it had nothing alike. The rooms were very poorly organised and the beds were uncomfortable and had no curtains or room dividers. The bathrooms were ok, but the showers need improvements. If you want a social hostel in pai, there are better options, If you want a hostel where you get a good night sleep, there are better.
