    Best hostel I've ever stayed in ”

    Mad monkey on Nacpan beach has been one of my favourite hostels I've ever been to. As a solo traveller it can feel quite hard to meet people at times or scary to approach people but the reps at mad monkey - Jack and Mart make a real effort to make everyone feel included. They are amazing! The welcome drinks where you meet other newbies starts things off nicely and then the nights out are so much fun! - pub quiz music quiz drink Olympics etc. It is located on the most beautiful beach with the most unreal sunsets too. You will not have a boring time here and the reps Mart and Jack made it super great!!

    It was great. My expectations were fulfilled. The staff is so nice. The clean it several times a day and the food is great. But just be prepared that the food might take a while! Thanks also to Jessy and Abegail. They gave me a warm welcome and helped me with the booking and other stuff. Special thanks to Jack and Mart. Those two crazy, kindhearted and funny guys were amazing. It couldn't have been better. So really thank you for your effort and all the engagement. It was awesome and unforgettable 👌 And I really liked the Programm they offered at the mad monkey. So check it out yourself.

    Above average”

    nice place, but very far and hard to go by yourself, no indication. You need to drive your scooter on the beach to find. They are far from town so all is expensive, food, water, tour, alcool. The only reason to go mad monkey is if you want to party. Because the room have no A/C, hard to clean because of the sands everywhere, they cut the electricity in the day. The only nice things is the party ambiance on the resort. All the rest is 6/10. +1 for the beach.

    As for the prices – when you’re running a hostel on an island, everything has to be brought in by boat. Our rates are set where they have to be to offer you the awesome atmosphere and delicious food in a remote getaway destination. Safe travels and thanks again for staying with us
