Why you should join the Madness

We aren’t your typical party hostel — we want to show you an epic time by immersing you in the local culture and connecting you to the communities you’re exploring. Our socially responsible hostel has projects in Asia that directly supports the locals — building water wells, creating education funds, providing fair employment for our team, and so on — which we’ve found is the best way to effect change. Your stay with us contributes to these efforts.


Our story begins with three backpackers — Steve, Tom, and Alex — who came to Cambodia in 2010. They quickly fell in love with the country and its people, however, the good times they were having in Phnom Penh were contrasted by the poverty that they came face-to-face with each day. Wanting to do something to give back, they had the idea to create substantial, sustainable, and positive change in the country to help other travelers experience its wonder. People thought they were mad, dubbing them the “Mad Monkeys”.


And thus, Mad Monkey was born and has quickly expanded since. Starting in 2011 as a single hostel in Phnom Penh, travelers were drawn to the vibrant atmosphere and social responsibility at the core of the company. Today, Mad Monkey is one of the largest hostel companies in Asia, serving over 350,000 guests per year in Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. We continue to rapidly grow as more hostels, property owners, and partners adopt Mad Monkey’s way of delivering a truly amazing customer experience with a social purpose.

Mad monkey and the people I met there made my Siargao experience seriously unforgettable❤️ I didn’t stay there but I went for the boat tour and had the best time of my life! Such a wonderful experience and even better crew who went above and beyond to make sure everyone had the best day. Kept coming back to mad monkey at night to meet up with the people I met on the boat and always felt right at home. Special thanks to Rhea, Adi and King Ed for their work and dedication to ensuring everyone is having a great time!
A 10/10 experience!! The staff are so helpful and friendly you can go to the counter with any questions or requests and they’re always happy to help. The bar staff (Andy & Cola) are the two cutest people alive! And Song (the security) is a ex monk who took some of us to the morning alms; so insightful & lovely. Making friends is so easy in the social area of the bar where they are running a fun activity every night. Or the pool has a stunning view at sunset. Slightly out of town butttt Mad Monkey run free shuttles for you basically anywhere so who cares! The manager Tom was present for my staff and he was so friendly and really made our time so amazing! Luang Prabang mad monkey literally became my family for 4 nights. Love them 4eva.

Recently stayed at the Mad monkey in Cebu and had an amazing time, the rooms were clean and spacious and the activities at night were very lively, living up to the mad monkey name. All the staff members were very helpful and super friendly including but not only; Dan, Sanie and Christine. The whole crew were welcoming and helped with all queries i had about where to go and how to book things. Would recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Cebu and looking to have a good time!

Very good stay, great facilities and nice showers. Friendly, helpful staff (particularly Dem & Somphone). Free drink on arrival and free shuttle to night market. Booked trip to waterfall through hostel as well as taxi/train to vang vieng - both well managed and surprisingly good prices :)Location is a bit of town so may be a bit quiet if you’re looking for a party hostel.
