As the title suggests, the Mad Monkey in Siem Reap is a fantastic hostel if you are a backpacker (and don't mind a bit of noise). A pool and all the necessary amenities you need, including laundry, is available, and the upstairs bar provides both excellent food and an excellent venue to start off a loud night before heading off...

Dear Ezra - It was an absolute delight having you stay here with our team at The Mad Monkey. Yes, our tuktuk drivers wear a shirt with a Mad Monkey logo so it is easy to spot them in front of our hostel. We wish you the very best for your onward trip :-) Thank you for staying at our...

Probably the most chilled out and quirky hostel you'll find in Siem Reap or even SE Asia. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. They helped me organise a cake for my friend's birthday, gave shots on-the-house and we celebrated with other travellers/backpackers in the bar upstairs, which was a lot of fun. The pool at the entrance was a...

My girlfriend and I stayed at The Mad Monkey in Siem Reap for 4 nights and we had an absolute blast. First day we had to pay cash on arrival but I was having problems getting money from my card which had me super stressed. The awesome staff let us check-in anyway and said we could pay before we left....

I stayed here for two nights back in December. The room was very neat and the bed was comfortable. I met plenty of new people from all over the world. The hostel has a pool, a rooftop bar and it also offers its own tours. So really, you could potentially spend a lot of your time in the actual hostel...

If you want to be alone and sleep all day, this is definitely the wrong place. From the morning you wake up, you will be drinking and the party continues on the rooftop bar until the staff takes everybody out to the pub street. Stayed here for 5 days, met loads of people, had a fabulous time. The staff was...
