I've stayed at both the Mad Monkey Hostel in Phnom Penh and also in Kampot and they are consistent, with both customer service and excellent experiences. Paula at Phnom Penh Mad Monkey delivers amazing customer service, and made me feel welcomed and comfortable as I was travelling on my own. The experiences I have had with Mad Monkey have been...

Loved the social scene at Mad Monkey, if you're traveling alone, its a great place to meet people! I was working during the week whilst i am in Phnom Penh and the bar downstairs means definitely no sleep until it closes, it feels like you're room is in the bar (not ideal if you have to wake up early). This...

Stayed here for one night en route to Siem Reap. Perfect for what we needed: big comfy beds (especially appreciated by my 6'6"/1.98 husband), working showers, bar and restaurant in the building, and very, very clean. This was an upgrade compared to the average hostel and everyone, including guests, were very friendly :-)

As soon as I walked in I thought "oh man, this is the party hostel to end all hostels." The party scene is not typically what I'm looking for in my travels, so I was a little concerned. My concerns were quickly put to rest. I had a private room and it was large, clean, and very comfortable. The bed,...

If you´re planing to drink from dusk till dawn, this hostel is perfect for you. If you´re looking for a good sleep night, don´t even bother coming close to this hostel. Bed are hard, the bathrooms have a funky smell and a really bad Wi-Fi connection is almost constant in this hostel. Check-in is at 14:00 pm and they will...

I stayed at the Mad Monkey for 4 nights. Room: I had a double room with fan and AC. Very clean room and comfortable bed. The stairs going up towards the private rooms from the bar made me feel uncomfortable, I'm surprised I didn't fall. Two bathrooms round the corner from my room that were both adequate. WiFi was great....

This is a great place to stay in Phnom Penh, a good lively bar on the top floor which finishes at 12. Great food down stairs in the restaurant and we rented bikes there also to head to the killing fields worked perfectly. All in all a great place to stay.

The Mad Monkey offers everything one is looking for in Phnom Penh. What blew me away was the wonderful staff! Everybody is very friendly and welcoming and the staff definitely looks out for everyone.

Mad Monkey Hostel is the ultimate hostel. It is in a great location for the city, and feels really safe amongst the chaos of Phnom Penh. The hostel employs its own tuc tuc drivers in the day times and has a partnership with a police officer in the evenings for safety. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate us...
