Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

First hostel I stayed in during my travels of SE Asia. Arrived in Bangkok at 7am and couldn’t check in to the hostel until a few hours later (though could leave our stuff in the bag room). Bar area feels very welcoming throughout the day (not just evening) and is great to meet people. The pool is good and beanbags are a great addition. Rooms are functional (4 bed mixed) with large lockers, air con and en-suite (with a slightly leaky ceiling). Some noise into the night but generally not too bad. Overall, glad I stayed and would go back again.

When I arrived (quite early) they were very helpfull with the checkin process. I left my Bag and went to explore the city. they gave me a map and recommended all the places worth visiting.

They are very well located from the hostle I went on to visit the local market, Royal Palace, Reclining buddha, Giant swing and Golden mount. there are other attractions close but unfortunately did not have time

The rooms were quite nice, the dorms have 4 beds with private bathroom so it is not too crowded. also they have a very nice social area with a bar and pool with a decent menu.

Will come again when visiting Bangkok in the future

Great location with khaosan road the next steeet over. Hostel provided a nice chilled environment. We stayed in a private room which was more than enough to feel comfortable in. Which the staff constantly kept tidy. Mad monkey provided excellent service whether you wanted to party or not. Couldn’t thank Jess and Elizabeth enough for making my stay comfortable but more importantly feel welcomed.

Will be staying at a mad monkey hostel in the future for the extra staff made by its staff making sure that we felt involved and welcomed!

Not working in Nov 21. I booked a few nights through their website directly (first night Nov 4th) a week or so in advance. I received a series of emails with confirnation, directions and travel tips (last one just night before coming). When I get there from 1 night quarantine hotel at nov 4th I saw closed place. I mean closed closed (apparently for last few lockdown months). Had to find other place - fortunately it was 3pm, not middle of the night.

Good for socializing with other travelers, with a nice pool area and bar.

It can be loud and hence difficult to sleep early, the private rooms are also basic albeit large. There aren't city tours/activities organized through the hostel which is a key reason I opt for hostels, and the staff weren't very helpful. "Jack" especially is a bipolar dick with a temper, I could provide more details but the summary is just beware!

The cost of a private room here isn't worth it as you can stay in a hotel and still partake in hostel social activities.

We went for Brunch and drinks, we waited for 40mins for the food and we asked the cashier/waiter, but the cashier was so rude. We didn’t like her attitude, she was not professional at all. She were even pointing her fingers on me and telling me to wait

All in all, food is good but I’ll never go back again

This is the 4th mad monkey I've been to and it's just as great as the rest of them, dare I say one of the best. There's something special about these places that will make your stay amazing. You're bound to meet some amazing people during your stay and make quick friends.

Great bar, great pool, great location, and great food. They hold different events daily which are always fun, as well as offering several different tours of the city or just general advice if you want to venture out alone.

The reps are also amazing people. Full of personality, will happily chat with anyone and everyone, and work hard to get everyone involved and having a fun time. Shout outs to Jess, Helen and North who gave us all a fantastic new years, and could probably drink almost anyone under the table.

Fair warning though: it IS a party oriented hostel with lots of drinking, loud music till midnight and rowdy crowds. If that's what you're after, this is the place to be.

We stayed at mad monkey on the 28th and 29th of January 2023.
To start of with during check in we had a bad experience as the person sitting at the check in counter was extremely rude.
The next day when I was entering the hostel at around 5pm a lady at the reception asked me where I am going and asked me if I am drunk again very rudely. She could have asked me my room number but asking whether I am drunk or not is not her concern . I was not drunk as I did not drink that day . Later she apologised.
We booked a private room, which was good.
I have been to other Mad Monkey properties before where i have had a much better experience. The staff at Mad Monkey Bangkok need better training.

Thanks for staying with us, and thanks for your review. I’m sorry to hear that you had a negative interaction with our team. They usually earn rave reviews for being friendly and helpful, but once in a while miscommunication or cultural misunderstanding can cause a rift. We’re talking through this issue with them so that they can learn from it and improve their service. Thanks for the learning opportunity!

I stayed here in early January 2020 at the end of a trip around Thailand. Amazing hostel, great crew, clean rooms, good food, and incredible reps. Rep Jess is wonderful. Does a great job keeping the energy going thru out the night and getting to know everyone. She’s a great tour guide of the local scene too and is even down to go out on her nights off! Jess is a star rep! Highly recommend anyone passing thru Bangkok and looking to get out on the night life as well as having a hostel with a great social atmosphere stay here! 10/10!

This was the first time I stayed in Hostel and My experience was good, I stayed in 8 Dorm room. The atmosphere is good. Hostel has its own Bar , you can have drinks and meet new people from different countries. The hostel do have some events like pool party and Pub Crawling. The hostel is near to Khao San Road, a place for Back Packer. I love this place. If I plan to visit to Bangkok again, Definitely I wll stay here.
