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).

Mad Monkey Bangkok

I recommend Everything about Mad Monkey Bangkok. From the moment we walked in, and until our reluctant departure, we had the most fun. The help we had with places to go and the friends we made during our stay will resonate with me for a long time. Thank You Lad Monkey Bangkok for such a great time. 10/10

When traveling the best times are made by the people you meet and experiences you have. Fortunately, Mad Monkey has a team of hosts and staff that will make you feel welcome and included from the moment you check in.Jack, Martino, and Nikayla all immediately introduced themselves to me, showed me around the city, local food spots and fun night life activities. I was literally halfway across the world and never felt more at home.If you are solo traveling or looking for friends to meet along the way of your travels look no further than the friendly smiling faces you will encounter at Mad Monkey. Have fun and safe travels :)
