Mad Monkey Cebu City

A short trip or an extended stay, Mad Monkey Cebu delivers affordability, comfort, and atmosphere that welcomes folks from all walks of life. Jay, Jack, & Maria are just absolutely fantastic and helpful throughout my stay. Got no plans for the night? Just head on up and share a drink or two with the patrons and staff. Drinking not your thing? Try karaoke nights, band performance, pool tables, and many more. I've gone to many hostels and I got to say this is definitely on top of that list.

I was glad to spend my last 2 nights with Mad Monkey. The staff were very accommodating and the vibe was fun! I highly recommend for all those who will visit Cebu, to spend a day or two in this place. It's an experience you will never forget. I've met people I was able to connect with. They made my trip memorable.
