About Mad Monkey Kampot

A hostel for adults, we are a great place for expats escaping the city, backpackers looking for a great social atmosphere at great prices without having to “Rough it” or single travelers looking to meet new, interesting and likeminded people.

We are western and Khmer run and owned so you get to have all of the authentic Khmer charm with western levels of service. We have a coffee shop, reception and restaurant on the pool level on the ground floor of the hostel serving coffees, cakes and ice cream and packed lunches for a variety of Kampot tours that leave every day day. The Mad Monkey is a social enterprise business, all staff receive fair pay, healthcare benefits and free education, we also contribute regularly to local causes and local charities.

On the rooftop level you will find the only original rooftop jungle bar in the whole of Cambodia! The bar is open all day and has comfortable seating, hammocks and everything else that you would expect from a cool bar thousands of miles from home, the bar provides views across the river and Bokor mountain. Open until 11.30 pm (sometimes later) our rooftop jungle bar is a great place to hang out and meet others! We are almost always full so if you want to meet others traveling in Kampot then The Mad Monkey is the place.

Hostels like ours in Kampot provide you with a fun and awesome way to meet up with fellow backpackers, independent travelers and cool couples that realise that the best part of a trip away is the people that you meet and the conversations you have. The Mad Monkey houses 75 people per night in new and modern rooms, the hostel build was only completed at the start of 2014 so the rooms are large, comfortable and clean.

We do not provide TV's in the rooms, because we have a thriving bar and social scene that actually pulls people in from Kampot to enjoy the only rooftop bar and facilities our focus is on sociall engagement rather than locking yourself in a room for 24 hours a day. We do provide a TV room and DVD’s if you are missing your dose of television. The Mad Monkey also provides a full tours and travel desk facility to help you get the absolute most out of your stay in this wonderful town.

Accommodation Information

Please be aware that almost all guests wish to extend for a few days when they get here and this is normally not possible due to the high demand for our hostel, our suggestion is to add a day or two onto your booking, you can always cancel without further fees, it is better than being disappointed in the midst of the best time ever. We look forward to welcoming you at The Mad Monkey Kampot!
