Where is Mad Monkey Bangkok?

Our hostel is located right in the heart of the action for backpackers in Bangkok, just minutes away from the legendary Khao San Road. The hostel itself sits on a peaceful bend of Phra Sumen Road overlooking the canal and a few metres from a historic fort and a park on the Phra Sumen River.

Our vibrant neighbourhood is full of restaurants, cafes, shops, convenience stores, and more — anything you’re looking for can be found within walking distance.


How to get to Mad Monkey Bangkok

From Suvarnabhumi Airport, you can take a taxi (running meter is usually cheaper than a set fee). Give the driver Mad Monkey’s address (included below in Thai). Note that you must pay in Thai Baht and the total price on the meter will not include the airport surcharge and toll fees (if you take a route with tolls). You can also take the Airport Rail Link, which is a cheaper option. Take the City Line, get off at Phaya Thai BTS Station. From Phaya Thai you can (1) take a taxi or tuk-tuk to Mad Monkey or (2) take Bus #59 to Khao San (Khok Wua Junction on Ratchadamnoen Klang Rd), then walk from Khan San Road to Mad Monkey (about 10 minutes). The last option is to take Bus # S1: You can take this bus at the airport from Gate 7 on the 1st floor. Get off at Phra Sumen Road stop and walk towards the river until you reach Mad Monkey (a few minutes).

If you’re coming from Don Mueang Airport, take a taxi (details above) or take Bus #A4: You can take this bus at the airport from Gate 12. Get off at Phra Sumen Road stop and walk towards the river until you reach Mad Monkey (a few minutes).

From Mo Chit Bus Terminal, take a taxi or Bus #3. You can get on Bus #3 from inside Mo Chit Terminal. Get off at Chakrabongse Road (behind Khao San Road) or Bang Lamphu, which is the closest bus stop to Mad Monkey. It’s about a 5 minute walk to the hostel from here. Walk towards Phra Sumen Fort (Pom Phra Sumen) and you will see Mad Monkey.

From Ekkamai Bus Terminal, take a taxi or Bus #2 or #511: You can get on Bus #2 or #511 outside the terminal but on the same side of the road. Get off at Khok Wua Junction on Ratchadamnoen Klang Road. From here it’s about a 10 minute walk to Mad Monkey (head towards Phra Sumen Fort (Pom Phra Sumen) and you’ll see the hostel).

Loved this place! It’s definitely the place to stay in Bangkok! As soon as I arrived here I dropped my bag off in my room and was down in the bar meeting other backpackers. Once the bar closed, most people headed out on a bar crawl which was great. I spent three nights here and it was a great start to my trip around Thailand. I would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Bangkok and looking to meet people!
