Liked: The price and the atmosphere was good, as were the staff and facilities. The hostel bar was good to meet people and then move to the nearby bar street. It is not in the centre but about 30min walk, and it has its own little area of bars and restaurants.

Disliked: The dorm was a bit old but was clean.

Liked: Great place to meet people, fun bar up on the too floor, I stayed in the dorm right next to it and it wasn't noisy so even if you don't feel like partying, don't worry. Big confy beds, good air on and lockers big enough for a backpack.

Disliked: Restaurant was a little pricey for the quality of food, not the best but by no means the worst

Liked: Staff was super sweet and accommodating. LOVED THE RESTAURANT! Great western food and attentive staff. Room was very comfortable.

Disliked: Don't book tuk-tuk through the hostel, they charge a lot. Negotiate directly with the drivers outside!

Liked: Atmosphere was good, especially if you are into partying.

Disliked: The room was unfortunately very poorly ventilated. It resulted in a weird smell in the room/toilet after a day (we were staying for 4 days). The walls were very thin as well, and unfortunately we were unable to rest well even after a long day out due to all the noise from the bar above. Perhaps the worse thing is that there were tiny roaches running through our toilet. I was expecting better cleanliness despite the relatively low prices paid.

Liked: The place had a lot going on, a lot of facilities. Bar Resturaunt tv room and pool room. Room was nice but nothing exceptional. The food when I are there was good. Baring in mind I stayed one night I didn't get to check out some bits but had a lot to do.

Disliked: I found the hostel was really out of the way of all the best parts in the city. If your looking to be in a nicer area with Costa around the corner then great but it left a lot of travelling around to see the city. The facilities while there were a lot weren't that well placed or organised the wifi was terrible for a big place I only managed to hook up to 1 of their several networks ( don't know the need for them to have several ) and this ran really poorly and kept dropping out not fun when organising your flight the next day.. Again the other parts like tv room and pool room where no where near the bar which would have allowed it to be a much more social place. The room was nice but for the price I paid I found much much better places with better facilities for a much better price. Overpriced for what it is with a poor location and the worst wifi I encountered in Phnom Penh

Liked: The executive double room is amazing- really big room and bathroom, looks really nice and luxurious. On the third night we had to switch to a twin due to availability. This was a pretty huge step down but still decent. Both rooms had good hot water and air conditioning.

Disliked: The twin room was a huge step down in terms of decor and size, the window looks out to the luggage storage room, and the bathroom is basic - no separate shower. However the room is still decent.

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.
