4 Bed Dorm

4 Bed Dorm

We hear you, backpackers: you’re on a dorm budget, but sometimes you just aren’t down for the big dorm lifestyle. You’re fine with a bunk bed, but does it have to come with a gazillion roommates?

No, no it doesn’t. Our 4 Bed Dorm is the dorm you’ve been waiting for. Share your space with 3 other bunkies in a cozy but airy room that meets all your needs.

The dorm is air conditioned, and there’s also a wall fan for extra cooling power. You and the roomies have your own en suite bathroom with a hot shower (no long lines!). There’s plenty of storage space for everyone’s stuff.

We also haven’t skimped on your personal space. You’ll have an individual reading light and power outlet in your bunk. You also get your own secure locker for your bag and valuables – just be sure to lock it up (we sell padlocks at Reception if you don’t have your own).

Book direct online here for the best rates. Now, don’t put this off. We tend to be at least 95% full on any given day and we can rarely take walk-in reservations. We’re looking forward to seeing you here, so don’t leave it to chance.

What To See In Siem Reap During Your Stay at Mad Monkey

Regular Siem Reap tours leave from our hostel every day, allowing you to visit the famous temples of Angkor Wat on either the all-day “Big Tour” or the half-day “Small Tour.” You can also choose to visit for sunrise and/or sunset at the temple. For any of our Angkor Wat tours, you can get some friends together and split the cost with other backpackers. Plans like this get made every day among new friends by our pool or in our rooftop bar.

All of our Tuk-Tuk drivers work with our hostel. They are paid fair prices and all speak English. Each of them is trained to our Mad Monkey quality standard to ensure you get the best tour of Angkor Wat and the Siem Reap province countryside.

We also provide our own boat party tour, bike tours, and other group excursions to help you maximize your Siem Reap experience. There are awesome events happening daily at Mad Monkey, plus a weekly pool party that has been rocking the Siem Reap hostel party scene since it kicked off.

Other activities in Siem Reap include quad biking tours in the countryside, the floating villages, the crocodile farm, bike rides, hot air balloon rides, and many other day tours and excursions that are available from our Siem Reap travel and tours desk.

You can find anything you want or need in Siem Reap quite easily. There are five main markets in Siem Reap a touristy day market for buying trinkets and souvenirs, two local markets, and two night markets. On top of this, Siem Reap has a number of shopping centres, supermarkets, and of course the famous Road 60 Street Food Market.

The majority of Siem Reap’s nightlife is located close to our hostel near Pub Street.  There are bars and clubs dotted throughout the old French Quarter. The action there and on Pub Street normally starts up around 11:30 pm. Before that, Mad Monkey’s Rooftop Beach Bar is a popular place to watch the sunset over the Siem Reap rooftops. Here you’re guaranteed to meet a drinking crew at the best backpackers hostel bar in the city. The games and the music get going, and before you know it it’s closing time and you and your new best friends are off to Pub Street – just a 100 second walk away from the hostel.

How Your Stay at Mad Monkey is Socially Responsible

We run a socially responsible hostel in Siem Reap. In fact, we were the first hostel to publish our commitment to our community and promote socially responsible employment practices in Cambodia when we started out back in 2011. Many of our team members come from poor backgrounds; we invest heavily in our crew’s training and development (including free English lessons and on the job skills training). We’re delighted to see these practices catching on at other hostels in Siem Reap.

As well as being committed to our team’s training and education, we pay all of our staff fair salaries well above local minimum requirements. Your stay at Mad Monkey not only helps to support our team members and their families financially, it also maintains their excellent working conditions. We offer each team member a basic health care and dental allowance, interest-free loans for further education, a mandatory weekly day off, male and female parenthood leave – our entire Cambodia team even takes an annual holiday together each year.

As a result of this fair and considerate treatment, many of our team members have been with us since we first opened the hostel. The fact that many hostels are now also making a commitment to fair pay and good conditions for team members is a testament to how effective it is at creating an awesome atmosphere for our guests.

When we started Mad Monkey we set out with a core purpose of ‘providing the best customer experience, in the most sustainable way, for the benefit of our guests and our local communities.’ That means not only great working conditions within our hostel, but also making sure your stay has a real and tangible positive impact on our community.

Our Mad Monkey Clean Water Project has delivered hundreds of clean water wells and filters in rural Siem Reap. This means that thousands of people who were previously suffering from unclean drinking water now have access to a clean and safe water source right in their home. Mad Monkey also works hard to deliver education grants and support the arts and special needs charities in Cambodia.  This is not a marketing ploy – this is the core reason we exist.  See our Mad Monkey story (here) for more information.

So if you are truly passionate about traveling responsibly in Cambodia then a stay at a Mad Monkey hostel is one way that you can really deliver a meaningful and sustainable positive impact. Of course we can help you get more involved if you’re interested, but at the same time if you just want to show up and have a great time in Siem Reap, you can still feel good about the fact that your stay is making a difference.
