How to get to Mad Monkey Phnom Penh
If you’re coming from the airport, there will be taxis waiting right outside the exit; attendants in blue uniforms can arrange one for you. If you prefer a tuk-tuk or a motorickshaw, you’ll have to walk out of the airport to the main road to catch one. Grab, a popular ride-hailing up, is widely used in Cambodia and you can easily order a taxi or a motorickshaw right to the arrivals gate of Phnom Penh airport.
Drivers around Phnom Penh generally know our hostel and you can simply ask to be taken to ‘Mad Monkey’, but please keep in mind we’ve moved to a new location so do give them our new address and ask them to take you to street 242 (“plow pie roy sai pee” in Khmer) in Daun Penh. The closest cross-street is street 63. The prices for rides from the airport are around $10 for a tuk-tuk and $15 for a taxi.
