Liked: In the Mad Monkey, you are just a cash cow : everything is charged, even a map of the city. The breakfast is not included which is a shame for a 7/8 bucks a night in dorms (which is very expensive according to local standards). There is no fun and no socialization going on. The location is quiet far from top spots & you will need tuk tuks to get downtown. NOT recommended at all.

Disliked: AXEL left no negative feedback.

Liked: Great service and staff. Nice restaurant with good food.

Disliked: I stayed in a 10 person dorm. Obviously I expected noise in a dorm of this size but I had a few loud people in my room after 1am. Hopefully you have more considerate people with you. It's just luck of the draw.

Liked: The rooftop bar is great! The dorms/rooms are very clean. The restaurant is nice even if it's a bit expensive. Tuk-tuk are always waiting outside. It's definitely a good hostel in Phnom Penh.

Disliked: We had some bugs in our room... but well, it's Asia! Nothing too disgusting =)

Liked: Friendly staff. Good beds, nice hot showers. Rooftap bar is cool.

Disliked: I was in the Baboon room and it was noisy, looked like i was in a tin can. When someone entered or left, the door made a lot of noise. The Mad monkey restaurant is expensive.
