How to get to Mad Monkey Siargao

The easiest (and most common) way to get to Siargao is by flying to Sayak Airport (IAO) where flights are scheduled daily from Manila, Cebu, and Clark.

From the airport, you can take a shuttle van service and ask to be dropped off directly to Mad Monkey Hostel in Bgy. Catangan in General Luna. The shuttle fare will cost you around PHP 350. For your convenience, Mad Monkey can arrange an airport pick up for you (PHP 350 per person) All we need is an email confirming your name and flight details. To arrange this, please email [email protected] or call reception at +639158429571.

Alternatively, you can opt to hire a tricycle, but the fare will be more expensive and is best split between two or more people.

I had an amazing time here, it was the best hostel I have ever been to. The different programs each evening of the week make it super easy to meet new wonderful people. You can book many activities directly at the reception, like renting your own bike or the island hopping, which I also highly recommend. The owner Jack and the staff are super helpful and will make sure you will have a fun time there. Lola is also one of the cutest dogs I have ever seen. The rooms were also good, each bed had its own fan, the bed was big and the little walls gave you at least some privacy. But for my experience, I didn’t need too much privacy as I have always shared my dorm with amazing people during the week. Thank you for everything, the time with you has been sensational.

We stayed at Siargao for a week. Honestly, it was the best place we've stayed in the Philippines.Mad Monkey offers a welcome drink and 30 minute open bar to all it's guests but this one does a lot more especially with Jack as your host. He gives you tips for the island and makes every night exciting with its own theme. Location is amazing as well really close to Cloud 9 and getting into General Luna is easy.

I had a great time at Mad Monkey, super friendly staff & Jack was an incredible evening entertainment host. He made sure you felt super welcomed & was always on hand if you needed anything. The hostels are clean & nice big beds. Really tasty food & good mango shakes. 5-10 from the town centre by trike & 10mins walk to cloud 9. Overall a great stay in a lovely hostel

Everything here was ran really well. Comfortable beds and rooms and bathrooms were cleaned daily. The restaurant was great. And most of all the funniest place to start a night in Siargao. A themed party every evening and got to meet so many people from all around the world. Awesome staff as well. Walking distance to Cloud 9 if you come for the surf.

Never would I have imagined that traveling alone for the very first time in Siargao could be this memorable and fulfilling. Especially when fate brought me to have stayed in Mad Monkey. If you want a place where you would want to socialize with other travellers, definitely Mad Monkey is on the top of the list. I have met amazing kind of people during my stay in Mad Monkey. I never thought that my solo travel will lead me to finding a new Family bonded by love, inclusivity and respect. To my Istetiks family, thank you everyone for making me feel that I should not be left behind. Thank you for the random getaway and ofcourse the memories we shared. 😂To Mad Monkey coordinators and managers ; special mention to Jack, Josh, Kian and Addie, thank you guys for the warm welcome and for always being there to cater our needs and always extending your help. I’ll surely go back here in MM IAO. I will miss the free drinks, the bar-hopping crowds, mind-boggling games and activities in MM!!! You really are doing a good job in making your guests happy and for bringing enthusiasm to each and everyone.To Bar and kitchen staff, Via, Shiela, Emily, Elisa, Jaime, Rose, Richard, Rex, Chef Bert, Luchie and to all Mad Monkey staff, thank you for your excellent service and of course for preparing mouth-watering foods and drinks.I will definitely go back to this place, to live, to love, and to laugh. All the best guys!!!-Yek

I really enjoyed my stay at Mad Monkey. The staff was very accommodating, the guests were a lot of fun, and the experience was amazing.I want to thank Steven and Nitz at the reception for catering to my needs with kindness and patience. It really made me feel very comfortable. And to these fun, awesome guys Josh, and Jack for showing us a good time! They really made everyone open up and be comfortable to socialize, that’s why even though I was traveling solo, I never felt an ounce of loneliness! Such a nice place to be in. Also, there were so many free drinks, it’s definitely a bang for your buck!I will definitely always consider Mad Monkey in my future travels because I trust that I will always have a home with them. Thank you, Mad Monkey!
