The Best Location In Siem Reap


We are just a stones throw from the famous Siem Reap Pub Street and all of the nightlife options that it can provide, at the same time we are tucked down a quiet side street so although we are close to the action none of the noise and revelry will encroach on your precious sleep.  That being said many of our guests will be held up in our roof top beach bar, it’s the only one in Cambodia and certainly one of the selling points of the hostel. How to get here.


Being located in the centre of Siem Reap means that we are also just a short Tuk Tuk or tour bus ride to all of the Siem Reap temples and sights. The centre of Siem Reap is a bustling but small town and we are located close to the temples but not so far out you miss on everything the town has to offer.


Great Food


The Top Banana restaurant provides lots of food options catering to backpackers, all of our ingredients are organic, our eggs are free range, our food does not contain MSG. Lovely stuff!  We provide sandwiches and wraps and breakfast in our ground floor coffee shop as well as packed lunches for you to take on your temple tour.  Food is very affordable and it is served in a relaxed atmosphere at the rooftop level of the hostel. Take a look at the food.


Great Private Rooms


Select from a large number of premier rooms with a massive double bed, air-conditioning, hot shower or twin and triple rooms with massive 180cm single beds, hot shower and air-conditioning. Accommodation is basic but clean and comfortable.  Every room has an outside window and its own TV.  Our premier rooms are a little more expensive but have balcony’s looking over the Siem Reap skyline.  Check out all of our hostel facilities.


Siem Reap Dorm Beds


It is well known that we have the best dorm beds in Cambodia! Each bed is massive around 180cm wide (almost a double), all of our dorms have air-conditioning so you wont sweat your rocks off.  We have three dorm rooms, two dorms of 6 beds (3 bunks) and one dorm of ten beds (5 Bunks) making our dorms a great option for visiting tour groups.


Dorm beds start at just $5.00 a night, which is great value for the amenities we provide at the hostel.  They are also a great way to meet and hang out with new friends that you will meet on the way.


The Top Banana Bar


On the rooftop level overlooking the Siem Reap skyline you will find the Top Banana bar. The bar is the number one backpackers hang out in Siem Reap and the only rooftop beach bar in the whole of Cambodia.  So if you like a drink then putting your head down at The Mad Monkey Siem Reap is for you.  Our friendly bar staff serve a salacious cocktail list, local beers and leading international wines all day until we close late at night.  It is a great starting point prior to embarking on pub street, a perfect all day chilling spot or a relaxed alternative to going out.  With a friendly and relaxed vibe it really is a great spot to mix with and get to know other backpackers and travellers.
