Where is Mad Monkey Phnom Penh?

Mad Monkey is centrally located in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh neighbourhood, a popular area full of cafés, restaurants, and bars.


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.

The beds are some of the best I’ve had travelling, really big super comfy. But what makes this hostel so good and welcoming are the staff, the guys who run the desk are super helpful and know everything about the local area. The reps are great for a night out, special shout-out to Alice she was amazing!Will come back for sure, see you all soon

Wicked hostel lives up to its reputation. Staff are so so nice & helpful (especially Tea-tea & Lauren!) - thanks so much for everything. We were upgraded from a 12 to 6 bed which was appreciated! Comfy & clean rooms, lovely pool and so much space to chill. Recommend the pub crawl as well. Thanks!

The beds were very big and comfy. One of the best showers I've had in a hostel in a while. Super friendly atmosphere. Great place to make friends. It is a party hostel, there are drinking activities most nights

One of my best hostels for my Asia trip. As I prefer hostels in the city than on the beach this was ideal. The rooms were spacious and perfectly enough.The staff was very easy going, friendly and helpful and they were always up for a joke. The atmosphere was amazing and through the regular activities you could always meet new people. I'll definitely be back.

Thythy was great. I felt very comfortable while doing my S21 Tour with her and she told us everything we wanted to know. The hostel itself is very nice and there are the best people around. Love it!

This is a good hostel but somehow it lacked something. We stayed at all the mad monkeys in Cambodia and this one was the only one that didn’t blow us away but we can’t pinpoint why. Only thing we can think is that the staff were all brand new when we got there so they weren’t as knowledgable, approachable etc as in the other hostels. Good hostel nonetheless just needs that wow factor to put it up with the others!

Rep Greg was awesome to have around he was fun friendly and will always help you to meet new people and brought everyone together completely filled with energy and always down for a beer. 3pm beer at the pier with him were like one of the best moments. Staff was super friendly and supportive.
