Great dorms/facilities, super friendly staff, an overall great hub to get good western food, tour buses, motorbike rental, and to socialise in Luang Prabang. Had a great time there, and shame I left so soon.A few things to note and pick on, food portions are a bit far on the small side, be prepared for roosters to wake you up at 6am unless you’re a very heavy sleeper, and super expensive if you don’t book in advance and they’re down to the last few beds.4.5/5 stars :)

Had a great couple of days here. Dangerous because the beer is cheap and the food is good. Didn't actually end up seeing any of Luang Prabang other than Mad Monkey and the ATM. The reps "Bodega" Dave and Alex were also excellent and far less annoying than the majority of reps. Clean, comfortable, and welcoming.

Awesome hostel. Alex and jack really know how to make you feel at home. Great social atmosphere and comfy beds. They just need to get curtains for the beds or blinds for the window because the outside light is on all night. Would and will stay here again!

We had a great time at Mad Monkey Luang Prabang! The town is a world heritage site, so everything closes down at 11pm until 7pm, including the public areas at the hostel, but we actually really loved this. We had lots of partying early and then we’re actually able to sleep without a ton of noise and disruption. Super comfy beds, the hostel is brand new so everything is clean and sparkly, great pool and people. Jack was AMAZING and made our stay so much fun! Thank you!

Great hostel, super new. Super comfy beds and clean communal spaces. The rep Jack was amazing, and even got me a cake for my birthday. The hostel runs great day trips as well, and Luang Prabang is easily one of the best places to go

We honestly had an amazing time. The accommodation, food and staff were just great. The rooms are spacious and the beds are confortable. There is always something organised by the staff to make sure you’re having fun and it also just a great place to meet people with convenient common spaces (the swimming pool is a great plus). Totally recommend if you want to meet people and enjoy both day and night life in Luang Prabang!PS: I love you Jack
