Clean room and sheets and free wifi. Stayed in a private room with attached bath, and the room was good. The food is good as well, and they do have a few vegetarian options. Only issue I had was that I was damn tired after a sleepless night in a flight, but the noise from the 'party' was too loud...

It is nice to hear few guests like you who understood some shortcomings more of an incident and not as an error. Thanks for that. We have a regular check up of our amenities to make sure it is all working fine. If ever it is not, these are rare times that we are willing to fix asap! Thanks again...

Met a bunch of great friends at the hostel that I ended up traveling longer with. The hostel has clean facilities, good restaurant and fun rooftop bar. It's more of a party hostel, but you can still get peace and quiet. The pool is also great for taking a dip after a long day. I was looking for an upbeat,...

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights. Had a very good time and really enjoyed the party on our first night. They have lots of fun activities and it's fantastic that they are socially responsible giving back to the Cambodian community. I could not recommend it enough.

I have stayed at several Mad Monkey hostels but must commend Ratha, Lena and Dary at Mad Monkey Phnom Penh for the friendliest and most helpful and kind service and hospitality I have received in Cambodia in the past three weeks. They made me feel at home and made my stay memorable.

Stayed for two nights - really friendly staff who get the party started in the evening!! Free keg or shots offered in the rooftop bar every night. Food is some of the best iv had in a hostel and is reasonably priced. The pool is a great addition if you want to chill out for a bit.

I love the Mad Monkey Phnom Penh! While in Vietnam I met a few people, but did not find that true social vibe until I arrived at the Mad Monkey in Phnom Penh Cambodia. The staff is incredible! Lots of locals are employed and I love them all. Everybody is extra friendly and always upbeat. You can ask them to...

Spend two nights in one of their dorms. Nice and clean and not much noise. We really enjoyed the pool as we were smelting in the sun. Also the Mad Monkey cafe across the street is definitely worth a visit with good food and service. The bar upstairs is also a must if you are a young, fresh backpacker :-)...
