How to get to Mad Monkey Siem Reap

When you leave the bus station or airport, there will be tuk-tuks and auto-rickshaws ready and waiting to give you a ride. If you can’t find one, ask a staff member for help.

Please note that we have moved to a new location in 2022, so direct your driver to Mad Monkey on Rose Apple Road. Grab, Southeast Asia’s ride-hailing app is widely used in Cambodia and Siem Reap and might be the easiest way to find places. Simply search for Mad Monkey Hostel. A tuk-tuk or rickshaw ride should cost around $3–$10, depending on how far you’re coming from.
