Mad Monkey Koh Rong Samloem Reviews

Mad Monkey Backpackers Resort -- the Koh Rong Samloem edition of the famous Mad Monkey chain -- is located in paradise! Having said that, the semi-open dorms are definitely of a lower standard than what you might expect from the brand.

The Location

When trying to reach this place from the mainland, don’t be surprised to find that there are no companies delivering you straight here -- the hostel is located in an extremely secluded place on the island. Therefore, your best bet is to sail to Saracen Bay and get a water taxi or the complimentary boat of the hostel from there. You might want to take into consideration that if you stay here, you are pretty much stuck here, as it is really hard to get out without a water vehicle. There is also no Wi-Fi at all. However, it is all worth it! You will be on an amazing private beach with nothing but pristine nature around and there is plenty to do at the hostel to keep you entertained! Amazing parties at night are guaranteed with more than a hundred people from all over the world.

Rooms and Bathrooms

When you are used to the Mad Monkey standard, you might be a bit surprised when you are showed to your room -- it is a hut with only three walls and lots of bunks crammed inside. You do get mosquito nets, but it is somehow still too basic. There is also no key for your room. The bathrooms are quite nice though, and there is plenty of hot water. It is also remarkable that despite the fact that everybody is on the beach the whole day, you do not get sand all over the premises!

Common Spaces

The whole hostel is really spread out and consists of probably thirty or more bungalows but in the centre of it all, there is a bigger building with the reception, bar, and main socialisation space. Darts and a pool table are here, as well as a sunbathing deck that offers some absolutely amazing views over the coast. There is also a private beach belonging to the hostel as well as an open-air gym and BBQ area. You can get some great food that comes in huge portions (even if they are quite overpriced, but you would kind of expect that on a tiny island like this).


Choose this place if you have in mind a few days of relaxing beach and party time in the same place. However, do not choose it if you would like to move around and explore and would like to have any other amenities like shops or restaurants around.

Location and Contact


• Here's information on how to get to our hostel:
• Getting to Shanoukville
• - Buses run to Sihanoukville regularly from all major Cambodian cities (Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Kampot) and from Ho Chi Minh City in southern Vietnam
• - Some local budget airlines run flights to Sihanoukville. Check out Cambodia Angkor Air or Cambodia Bayon Airlines.
• Getting from Sihanoukville to Koh Rong Samloem
• - To get out of the island, you will need to take a ferry. There are several ferry companies operating out of Sihanoukville - we recommend HTVC and Buva! All ferries leave from Sihanoukville Port Autonomous.
• The Final Leg of the Journey
• - The ferry will drop you off at one of Koh Rong Samloem's major ports. The exact drop-off location is subject to change by season, but our Mad Monkey team always knows where the boat will be.
• - When you get off the ferry, Mad Monkey's private boat (it's orange with some pirate flags) will be waiting at the port to take all Mad Monkey guests the rest of the way to our private bay.
• - One of our Customer Experience Reps will be on the boat with you to answer any questions you may have and get you excited for the magical time you're about to have!
• - Free pick-up from Orchid Pier at 10am, 12:30pm and 4pm or when the ferry arrives. Departure from the pier may not be at these exact times, but rest assured our boat will be there.
• If you have any questions about getting to Mad Monkey Koh Rong Samloem while you're in Sihanoukville, you can visit our booking office, which is inside the Koh Rong Dive Centre and Speed Ferry booking office on Serendipity Beach Road next to Golden Lion Roundabout.
• Thank you!
