Why Mad Monkey is the Best Place to Stay in


Why Visit Kampot With Mad Monkey Hostel?

Mad Monkey Hostel Kampot is our main activity and adventure hostel. It’s designed to provide a mecca of tours and activities for the discerning backpacker in Cambodia. We offer budget Kampot accommodation with one of the largest swimming pools in Kampot and an amazing party and social hostel scene for our customers to meet and mingle with other backpackers.

Our backpacker hostel in Kampot is located just a few minutes walk away from the town centre, and overlooks the Kampot River. In fact, the views from our hostel rooftop bar of the river and the Cardamom Mountains are simply breathtaking. There’s no better spot to enjoy a refreshing beer or a cool cocktail at sunset.

The team at Mad Monkey Kampot have earned several well-deserved awards. We have 2 “Hoscars” from Hostelworld to our name, as well as 7 individual Hostelworld awards and 6 TripAdvisor Certificates of Excellence. Our Kampot backpacker hostel has been recommended as “The Best Place to Stay in Kampot” by kingpin travel bloggers and journalists including Travel + Social Good, TripWire, and Beyond Blightly.

What we offer to backpackers visiting Kampot is unsurpassed on the local scene. We have day-long Kampot tours leaving 5 days a week that will allow you to discover the real rural Cambodian experience. This southeastern corner of the country is under-explored but overflowing with beauty, fun, and adrenaline.

Kampot is just a short 3-hour bus or taxi ride from either Phnom Penh or Sihanoukville. It’s also easy to get to Kampot from Sihanoukville Airport. Many backpackers make Kampot their “chill out” hostel break in their Cambodia itinerary. They’ll stop here between their journey from Siem Reap or Phnom Penh down to the coast and will stop off for two or three days.

Of course Mad Monkey is a cheap place to stay in Kampot, but that doesn’t detract from the experience. Mad Monkey Kampot offers tons of facilities that make it the ideal place to meet people: a popular international and local restaurant, a large swimming pool complete with poolside bar, daily parties & activities, low cost daily tour departures, a pool table, and a rooftop bar overlooking the river and the moutains. We also have excellently appointed Private Rooms and Dorms.

All of these excellent facilities are backed up with a backpackers resort experience with 5-star hotel levels of service, and of course the friendly social scene that is synonymous with the Mad Monkey name among backpackers in Southeast Asia.

You will need between 3 and 4 days in Kampot to get the most out of your stay. When you discover all the tours and activities going on here, you’re going to want to take part in at least a few: motorbiking through the Kampot countryside, visits to the pepper farms, salt farms, waterfalls, Kep Beach and the islands, and a regular river cruise. Check out all of our Kampot activities and events to see what will be available in the hostel during your stay.

Every stay at the best hostel in Kampot is backed by our Mad Monkey Customer Promise: “No Stress, No Worries – a worry and stress free stay for every customer.” If your experience is anything less, let us know and we’ll make it right.

How Your Stay at Mad Monkey is Socially Responsible

As with all of our hostels, Mad Monkey Kampot is a socially responsible hostel. Mad Monkey was founded on the principles of fair employment and community contribution. We were one of the first hostels in Cambodia to actively promote socially responsible employment practices. The Mad Monkey team members that you will meet all benefit from a living wage and all of the employment benefits they deserve, on par with what is standard in most Western countries.

These benefits include health and dental care cover, continuous investment in training and development, paid holidays, free English lessons, support for other education pursuits, interest free loans, excellent working conditions, parental leave (male and female), a mandatory day off every week, and time off or bonus pay for major local holidays.

One result of these employment policies is a satisfied and motivated team. Our staff are known for their friendly demeanor, and many guests have told us after their stays that the service and facilities they received at Mad Monkey were more akin to a luxury hotel than a budget backpacker hostel in Kampot.

When we opened the first Mad Monkey in 2011 our core purpose was to provide the best customer experience in the most sustainable way for the benefit of our guests and our local communities. This continues to guide our business today. You can rest assured that your stay at Mad Monkey has a real and tangible impact in the hostel’s community, both for our staff and beyond.

In the years since we started our first hostel in Phnom Penh we have contributed to many community projects with our trusted partners. Together with our guests we have delivered 200+ clean water projects to rural poor families in Cambodia. Our Education Fund has provided access to education for a whole class of disadvantaged students.

In Kampot our team works to support Epic Arts Kampot, an organization that provides arts education and opportunities for young people with special needs. We love what they do and support them wherever possible.

So if you are looking for a truly socially responsible place to stay in Kampot then you can rest assured that Mad Monkey meets this criteria. We take our commitment to the community seriously, and we’d be happy to tell you more about it during your stay.
