We backpacked our way through Asia but decided to stay in no shared dorms. This hostel has it all. An amazing restaurant, a rooftop bar, a club down the street, and they can plan excursions very easily! The room we had needed way better lighting but for the price we paid we cannot complain. Overall, the staff (Tina and Gerald)... More

Atmosphere wise the bar at the hostel has an awesome one. They have got young folks working at bar there to ensure people mix every night. After the bar closes at around 11pm everyone heads to a local nightclub with the same folks that work at the bar. The club is very good. In addition one very good point that... More

The mad monkey can be as relaxing or as crazy as you would like it to be. By day, chillaxing or playing drinking games by the pool, by night sky bar and if you are feeling extra energetic Paula and Patrick will take you to the mad monkey club.

The staff was the absolute best I've ever experienced at a hostel. Especially the cute girls at the reception called Sreynut, Sophear and Srey Leak! They were helpful, friendly and a lot of fun!! If you're here, tell them hi from their favourite, Jonathan!

A shame to see some awesome staff working for a hostel like this. Shutting down the hostel bar early and herding everyone to a more expensive bar owned by the same management is not my idea of a good practice. Plastic on beds, pricey beer\food and a small pool...easily my least favorite hostel to date.
