Spend a Monday night here with 2 friends while in transit - we were in a 4 bedroom shared room, but rented all 4 beds. The facilities are clean, but nothing fancy. The rooftop bar/pool is a good place to hangout if you're wanting to meet some friends. We were on the 4th floor I believe, and didn't have an issue with the noise. If you were staying on a weekend and needed to get more sleep, I would suggest you ask for a room on a lower floor.

The hostel exceeded my expectation, the room rates are affordable and the staff were friendly. They took immediate action when I reported our aircon wasn't working. There's a pool and a bar, and billiards table, glad to meet new friends and fellow travelers! I will definitely go back here!! Cheers Mad Monkey!

A short trip or an extended stay, Mad Monkey Cebu delivers affordability, comfort, and atmosphere that welcomes folks from all walks of life. Jay, Jack, & Maria are just absolutely fantastic and helpful throughout my stay. Got no plans for the night? Just head on up and share a drink or two with the patrons and staff. Drinking not your thing? Try karaoke nights, band performance, pool tables, and many more. I've gone to many hostels and I got to say this is definitely on top of that list.

I was glad to spend my last 2 nights with Mad Monkey. The staff were very accommodating and the vibe was fun! I highly recommend for all those who will visit Cebu, to spend a day or two in this place. It's an experience you will never forget. I've met people I was able to connect with. They made my trip memorable.
