A great party hostel! It was easy to meet lots of people and the staff was great at encouraging socializing. I ended up checking out as it wasn't quite right for me personally-- It was a bit too fratty for my taste, and a lot of the people I met were a bit too young for me to connect with...

It was our pleasure to have you here as our valuable customer, AMers27. Yes, our backpacker hostel is mostly for young and party - goers. Usually we have early - twenties hanging around but do not be afraid to meet more fellow guests in the restaurant and the bar. Please do not think you are too old to mingle with...

Had room number 4. I have to say ot looked better on the pictures, but we still had a good stay. Fast internet, hot shower, quiet aircon. We had a big window at the back of our bed which was just an opening to the hallway, for which i dont know why. The bar upstairs is cool and lively, but...

Our double room was literally right above the bar so on the first night, it was so loud that it was like we were in the bar! On the second night we decided to join in downstairs since we didn't have an early tour and it was super fun! The staff do a great job of getting everyone socialising and...

It was great to have you and your party as our guests Bianca. Regarding the sound, we make it a point to close the bar at midnight or latest at 1am - to us it's a considerable time to put everyone to sleep. Thank you so much for choosing us as your hostel - you were an awesome guest, we...

Dear Curious Kitten, Thanks for the great review, with regards to the small massage shop that you are talking about, this is not at all connected to our hostel - But i can assure you that you have the wrong information. No one has been raped in there, if anything like that had happened the owners would be going to...

When I moved to Phnom Penh, I stayed here for my first week while looking for an apartment. Not only were the staff consistently helpful and friendly, I was overwhelmed with the new backpackers I met, ate, and drank with every night of the week. I think this is what Mad Monkey does particularly well. It attracts those who are...

My partner and I stayed here in a double room with AC for 3 nights and we had a great stay. The food at this place was awesome and reasonably priced! All the staff were really friendly and there was a lot going on in the roof top bar. While we were there Krispy Kreme down the road opened so...

Stayed here for 3 nights in a private room with shared bathroom. Rooms were very clean and bathrooms were cleaned regularly! The restaurant serves up delicious food and the staff are very helpful! Although we were above the sunset bar surprisingly we can sleep through all the noise and didn't bother us at all! They tend to close up early...
