Koh Rong Samloem Mad Monkey

The Koh Rong Samloem Mad Monkey is a backpackers’ hotel and it can be found on a private beach resort off the southern coast of Cambodia. This hostel offers dorm rooms with all the comforts of home. Guests will have their own reading light, lock box, and bed during their stay. Charging facilities are available in every common area, although many people do not need them since there is no Wi-Fi readily available in this little piece of paradise. And, don’t worry, no one misses it!

Guests will love the en suite bathrooms at the Koh Rong Samloem Mad Monkey, especially since they can take a cool shower on the hottest days of the year. There is a twelve-bed dorm, six bed dorm, four bed dorm, and ten bed dorm, and most of them look out towards the sea.



Facilities at Koh Rong Samloem Mad Monkey

Guests love the private beaches at the Koh Rong Samloem Mad Monkey, and since there are a few of them, everyone can find the one that meets their current needs. The best part is that everyone else that a person sees on these private beaches are those who are staying at the hostel.

No other tourists are allowed to wander onto that sand, even for a minute. Everyone can spend time lounging on the sand or they can choose to go swimming in the water or play a rousing game of beach volleyball.

The Beach Bar is popular during the day, as guests can get a large variety of fruit shakes, beer, and alcoholic beverages there. Guests can either choose one of the seats that are scattered around, or they can hop into one of the swinging hammocks for a little additional relaxation.

Happy hour at Koh Rong Samloem Mad Monkey usually takes place at the Pier Bar, as that is where there is a rope swing, diving platforms, and catchy music playing in the background.

Activities at Koh Rong Samloem Mad Monkey

There is plenty to do during a stay at Koh Rong Samloem Mad Monkey including kayaking, corn hole games, beer cricket, snorkeling, fishing, and boat tours. There are also books that everyone can borrow within the library, however, people are encouraged to leave one if they take one. Visitors can also go see the waterfall on the island and it can be reached via a short walk from the hostel.

Those who love to explore will want to venture out onto the jungle trails. One trail leads to an old lighthouse, while others will take travelers to the other side of the island and all the beaches that can be found over there. To reach these trails, guests must take a boat ride from the Koh Rong Samloem Mad Monkey to Saracen. As people are strolling along the trails, they have the chance to see monkeys, lizards, and many other jungle animals that live on the island.

Diving is another popular activity while visiting Koh Rong Samloem Mad Monkey. The staff at the hostel can make arrangements for diving trips. However, since they are not a diving resorts, arrangements must be made for the diving centers to pick a person up in their own boat. There are both an SSI and PADI center available, so everyone will feel safe as they dive into these waters for the first time.

One thing that everyone must do while they are at Koh Rong Samloem Mad Monkey is see the phenomenal sunsets. The sun sets directly over the water and guests can sit at the bar as they watch it get lower in the sky. The colors of the sunsets on the island are spectacular with colors ranging from deep red to purples, oranges, yellows, and even a shimmering peach. No one can miss these sunsets and since each one is different, people will want to take the time to see them every night.


Koh Rong Samloem Mad Monkey Reviews from Past Visitors

  • This is the best Mad Monkey hostel a person could find anywhere in the world! This hostel can be found in the middle of paradise and everyone can choose what they want to do during their stay. The staff at the Koh Rong Samloem Mad Monkey is simply the best. This is my third time staying at this hostel and it will not be my last!
  • The fire show that the staff puts on at night is simply amazing!
  • The secluded location is perfect for relaxing and for partying at all hours of the day and night.
  • Pizza night is on Tuesdays and it is cooked outside in stove ovens. The rest of the food is amazing as well, and I highly recommend the Cambodian curry and the jalapeno poppers.
  • They offer special days at the Koh Rong Samloem Mad Monkey and during my stay, it was Australia day. They brought a DJ in to spin some tunes and everything was catered around Aussies for that day!

No one has ever said a bad thing about the Koh Rong Samloem Mad Monkey hostel, with the exception that there could be a few more activities available to guests. Well, the staff has listened to those concerns and they are always working hard to incorporate more fun adventures into every day.

Those who have never stayed at a Mad Monkey hostel before will definitely want to begin with the one on Koh Rong Samloem. That is where they will get a true hostel experience in the middle of paradise, because they will be treated like the royalty that they are.
