“super fun environment, close to the public city boat which takes you lots of places, clean and comfy rooms, helpful staff, would definitely recommend!”
“Great place to stay in Bangkok, would definitely recommend staying at mad monkey hostels, staff are helpful and the place is a good hostel to meet people while traveling.”
“As a solotraveler, I cant recommend this hostel enough. Derek and Liam went above and beyond to make me feel welcome and included, the facilities are top notch, the staff is extremely friendly and welcoming, and I feel as though the connections I made here will (hopefully) last a lifetime. Only complaint: when I asked to extend my booking, the price was almost double than what I paid originally. I was told it was due to lack of space so be sure of your travel plans during peak season!”
“Absolutely loved this hostel! Fantastic bar and restaurant. The food is amazing! Great pool area out the back however it never gets the sun so you can't sunbathe but its a great place to meet people. Its a 10 min walk to Koh San Road so fairly central but far enough away you can sleep. Rooms were spacious and clean. Reception will hand out towels if you've checked out but need to shower later on. I would highly recommend this hostel if you're wanting to party and meet people.”
“This hostel is the perfect place to meet people and have some fun. There are plenty of lounge areas eg. bar, restaurant and pool area. The food is also amazing. There are organised nights like a pub crawl and beer pong tournaments so there's always a great atmosphere. The rooms were clean and spacious with good aircon. The hostel is also within walking distance of Koa San Road but far enough away that you can get some sleep.”
“Came here for Halloween and my god it did not disappoint, staff were incredibly friendly and made the first night one not to forget. Rooms were as you expect and did the job, thankfully they had warm showers. Highly recommend and will be back”
“We stayed here just for Halloween. It was a good stay! The hostel is fun and the atmosphere is good. I wouldnt say the location is great, close to khao san road though. Our bathroom stayed flooded for our stay which was kind of gross. Beds were hard but the ac was good.”
“Great party hostel! Very close to Khao San Road and the hostel is amazing. Super clean and the staff are really friendly. Big shout out to Liam, fun guy who knows how to party...and dance!”
“Mad Monkey hostels are the perfect mix of relaxing and exciting! They have clean rooms, great facilities, and it is the perfect place to make new friends or travel buddies. I stayed at the Chiang Mai, Phenom Penh, and Bangkok locations and LOVED them all. The pools are just icing on the cake!”
“Very nice hostel, super clean , Amazing staff, the bar was cool probably organize more games. The location really easy to move to another places!!”
