Simple and good hostel. Can be noisy in the evenings due to partying, but music always switches off at midnight. Our air con was leaking all night so we had a terrible sleep in a very very hot and humid room. Staff were great though and fixed it the following day

Really really good hostel. The staff are amazing, really friendly and I like that the majority of them are locals. The rooms are really nice, the bar is really cool, the food is good (although more expensive than what you'd get elsewhere). They have their own tuktuk drivers which is nice and don't try rip you off. Really good services...

Everything about this hostel is amazing! A perfect hostel if you want to be social and party! The beds are clean, food is good, they have free beer night events, and different events every night. The staff is amazing especially Paula! The best bar manager in the world. 10/10

Great sociable hostel especially if you're travelling alone, nice pool area, cheap bars and really helpful staff. The pub crawl they do is a great night too and the bar always has events going on. The place to stay in Phnom Penh

This is an absolutely​ amazing party hostel for backpackers. I love the way they have done up the hostel and all the wall art. The different events are fun. The hostel ensures that your stay is a fun one yet a responsible one. Things like laundry, towels, travel arrangements, tour information, food is all taken care of under one roof....

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).

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,...
