Came here as a solo traveller after staying down the road and finding a distinct lack of atmosphere and was very pleased to find that this hostel is more than social and a great place to meet people. There are events organised every night and despite staying in the dorm right by the bar I didn't find the noise to...

I'm not sure how this place finds the balance between hosting a raging party ever night and also keeping the facilities impeccably clean. I passed on the party, although the noise made it seem like the party was in my room. Earplugs are a must if you plan on going to bed before midnight. The staff is very friendly and...

Cheers so much for your review, Laura. Thanks for finding time to leave us a review. We do advertise our hostel, as a party hostel so we hope you were aware what kind of environment you are going to stay ahead of time.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write us review. We always advertise online that we are a party hostel and our price per dorm bed. We make sure that our standards are higher than the rest of our competitors. We wished you should have done more research before booking so that you won't feel that you may...

Stayed at mad monkey in Phnom Penh after staying in the Siem reap mad monkey and was not disappointed. The level of drinking and partying was definitely held up high thanks to Aurora, Monica and Sue. Rooms and everything about this hostel is awesome!

We came for the brightly coloured stairs/artwork, and ended up staying through til the early hours of the morning. Amazing place to watch the sunset over the city and enjoy happy hour cocktails. Really great food, particularly the burgers. Very friendly staff and a great atmosphere/crowd in to the night. Will definitely be back for more beer-pong!

The hostel is in a good location. The staff are very helpful and nice. I booked a 6 room female dorm and the room was located at another location, across the road. The restaurant whips up good food as well. They seem to have a party night every night and so it can get a little noisy if your room...

The accommodation is absolutely amazing! The decoration is so much fun and very colourful. The rooms are comfortable, welcoming and clean. The overall highlight is the wonderful staff!!! They give a great personality to this hostel. The friendliest people you will meet in Cambodia. They act like family and will accept you as such. Highly recommended!
