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 :-)...

Hello Astrid, thanks for letting me know about this. I think there was a misunderstanding about this ATM machine. First thing, we always make sure this machine is working all time : 24 / 7. We knew how it is very important for you our guests to withdraw money and how much more at the comforts of this hostel. Just...
