Everything you need to know about traveling Koh Rong
Where is Mad Monkey?
Mad Monkey Koh Rong is located on Longset Beach on the island of Koh Rong, Cambodia. It’s 200m away from the speedboat pier and is very accessible to other commercial establishments in the island.
How to get to Mad Monkey Koh Rong Hostel
To get out to Koh Rong, you’ll first need to get to Sihanoukville. From Phnom Penh, the fastest way to get there is by taxi and then through the new expressway (it’ll only take two hours!) Buses also run to Sihanoukville regularly from all major Cambodian cities (Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, and Kampot) and from Ho Chi Minh City in southern Vietnam. Some local budget airlines run flights to Sihanoukville. Check out Cambodia Angkor Air or Cambodia Bayon Airlines.
Guests need to go to Sihanoukville Port Autonomous to get the speed ferry to Koh Rong. Keep in mind that Koh Rong is different from Koh Rong Samloem, so don’t get confused! While there are several ferry companies operating out of Sihanoukville, we recommend GTVC and BuvaSea — both of which leave from Sihanoukville Port Autonomous. When you get to Koh Rong Island, ask to be dropped at the Long Set Pier — alight the boat, head down the pier, and turn right. Head through Pura Vita Resort and you’ll find us on the other side!
