Our Kampot hostel opened in 2015 as the fourth location for Monkey Republic Hostel Group. It sounds official, but it’s just a bunch of mates who didn’t leave Cambodia after travelling through Southeast Asia 15 years ago. Our hard-partying days are over because I got in one little fight and my mom got scared, she said you’re movin’ to your auntie’s and uncle’s in Bel-Air.
Kampot’s property has a mix of private fan rooms and air-con dorms, as well as a full bar & restaurant (which is vegan and vegetarian-friendly!), all housed in two remodelled, mid-century buildings.
While there’s plenty of comfort food from the United Kingdom (and burgers for our American friends), our menu is packed with Cambodian delights and plenty of vegan and vegetarian-friendly options. Take a seat in our lush garden, or watch the game in our sports bar while you wait to win the pool table.
Happy Hour runs from 4-8pm, except Friday & Saturday when you can enjoy $1.50 mixed drinks, $.75 beer, and $1.75 wine (the best wine in Kampot (for that price, anyway)) from 4 ’til close.
Let’s get this out of the way: To make sure you get the best bang for your buck, we offer both ensuite and share bathroom private rooms. All of them are fan-only and there’s no hot water. We repeat: no air-conditioning, no hot water.
With that said, you’ll have your own space to catch-up on Netflix without headphones, because we have 5 wifi routers scattered throughout the property. Each room also comes with cabinets to lock away your valuables, blankets, towels, and a great sports bar just steps away.
Each dorm bed boasts a privacy curtain, giant locker (it’ll fit your entire bag!), international power outlets, and reading light. Not only do you get your own space, but you won’t queue for the toilet or shower because there’s one for every four people.
Even though you get all this room to yourself, we still encourage you to take advantage of our sports bar, pool table, old school video games, and tours, because you don’t want to leave Kampot without making a few friends.
