If you enjoy partying and connecting to people, that’s your go to place. In Mad Monkeys cebu everybody drinks together in their lovely rooftop bar. You basically get to know all the visitors who stay there within one day and you will have a great time. Staff is super kind and funny. They serve tasty food and drinks there. On top they offer some exiting activities which you can do with your friends or on your own. Had a great stay. Cya in a bit.

Property's Favorite Review
Because of the pandemic, hostel has a different feel than its intent of being a social or party hostel. Still, its rooftop bar-slash-common area is open early in the morning until midnight. They do have happy hour promos too. There's a pool there too if you want to take a dip. Room (including bathroom) is kept clean and airconditioning works well which is perfect given hot weather. They provide hostel standards of socket and lamp per bed. There's a locker also that is big enough for backpacks or a luggage. Just bring your own lock. Beds are bigger and sturdier than your typical hostel but could use some optional curtain for more privacy. Location is okay - 15 mins walking distance to restaurants/bars towards the main road on the right, and on the left, to heritage sites like the ancenstral houses/museums, heritage monument, Magellan's cross and church. Staff are helpful and available most time of day.
