Great hostel, stayed here for 6 nights. Events in the evening were always a great way to meet people. Reps always made you feel included and were always around to help. All in all great stay and would come back.

Loved staying here! Was very social and a great place to meet people. The pool was a great place to chill and had events every evening. The staff were friendly and helpful, there was always someone around to help if you needed.

We had a great stay here at Mad Monkey. The staff were really friendly and the organised social events were always really fun and a good laugh. The pool was such a good addition, best place to socialise in the day especially when there was a pool party. Loved staying here!

Private room smelled like damp, no curtain, no lockbox, and shower cold. Also positioned by the pool, so extremely loud.

I’ve stayed in other hostel privates, including another Mad Monkey hostel, my standards aren’t overly high for hostels, and this was the worst experience I’ve had.

The bar/tour/cafe/front desk staff and hosts were all exceptionally lovely and this review is no reflection on them.

I LOVED THE MADNESS. Clean and very safe. This was a great social hostel with nightly events and a fun pub crawl three times a week. The gym and the swimming pool were added extras that made my stay even better. The hostel is located in a quiet area just a few minutes walk from the famous Tha Phae Gate. Loads of small cafes and shops can be found within 10 minute's walk.
The day trip to Mae Kam Pong Village that the tour desk arranged, was dope! I highly recommend this.
The staff were very friendly and I met a great group of young travelers here. I'll be back.

Huge shout out to Fiat and Stefan!!! Seemed like a pretty decent social hostel to hang at and get your bearings before more exploring and we ended up staying longer because just had so much fun. Talk to Fiat if you want any recs on best local spots to hit whether that be temples, food, scooter rental. We got the word from him about an awesome mountain town about an hour and a half north east of Chiang Mai and had a great couple of days out there all thanks to Fiat. Can also tell you a lot of the cool night life spots to hit as well just depends what you’re into and I guarantee him or any of the staff will help point you in the right direction
