Super close to Russian Market and Tuol Sleng
Close to Russian Market, close to Tuol Sleng, close-ish to Airport
Only here one night as we needed to be v close to Russian Market (Tuol Tom Pong) before a midday flight out of Phnom Penh. Mad House has some good and bad points. Good: late check-in (up to 11pm), nice café on corner of street for breakfast, 2 minute walk to Russian Market; also close to Tuol Sleng (S21 Prison Camp). Bad: rooms are a bit odd, we had a window into the adjoining room! Fortunately a blind on both sides but still a bit strange. Shared bathroom which, though the hotel is certainly cheap, puts it at a disadvantage to other similarly priced places we stayed which had private bathrooms. Aside from the daytime attractions, I’d suggest this area is somewhat “suburban” and hence has very little nightlife to speak of and not much in the way of restaurants either.

Nice staff, close to locals
Location, staff, local info.
Nice backpacker hotel, away from the touristy area. Close to locals and Russian market. Tuk Tuks galore when you need one.

Perfect for a short stay
Price, staff, cleanliness
Mad house is further out of town than most. However you are next to the Russian market do all tuk tuks know where to go. At the end the street is a fantastic coffee shop.

Large rooms and friendly staf
Friendly staff, huge room, great food, cheap drinks, quiet location
We didn't have any complaints about Mad House at all. They make it quite clear on their site that it is not near the tourist area so if this is a problem for you then don't stay here.

All in all okay
not loud, friendly manager, nice area around.
when we arrived at mad house, all rooms were occupied, because they had some problems with there system. but the manager was really friendly and we could sleep in the dorm for one night (which was as good as the room) and besides we got a refund for the first night. but the other staff was not so good. often they didn't understood what we wanted. you should know, that the house is quite far from the center, so safe some money for a tuk tuk.

Good location but very normal rooms
The bed is broken,it is not balanced, one side will sink down when you are on it. Told the manager to handle it, but he didn't. Too tired to tell him again as I'm just living for few nights. Managers can speak good English.Convenient.

Nice rooms, interesting layout!
Friendly and helpful staff
Checked in for a couple of nights to see the main tourist attractions. Within walking distance of S21 but will require a tuk tuk for other sites. Hotel pretty clean and well run, staff helpful. Room was next to an open room at the end of the corridor so noise was a bit of an issue, but not too bad. Wifi and cable tv all working reasonably well, nice bathroom! Good feeling around the place, some nice restaurants nearby if you don't fancy some in house food which is pretty good also. There is a roof top bar which seemed fun although we didn't spend much time there.
