Mad Monkey Hostel Cebu City: 10 Things You Will Love
Mad Monkey, one of the fastest-growing hostel brands in Asia is finally in Cebu. Offering affordable but quality accommodations, Mad Monkey is one of the most highly-rated and most trusted names in the traveling and backpacking community. Started seven years ago by three English guys, the Mad Monkey brand quickly rose to fame for its unique brand of service and hospitality.
Just this month, Mad Monkey finally opened its first hostel in Cebu City (and the third in the country.) During a special preview, TheCebuano got a chance to see the place up close. Today, we’re listing down 10 things we’re pretty sure you’ll love about it! Ready? Let’s begin!
1. Cool & Friendly Team
Mad Monkey is run by a team of people who are not only hardworking and genuinely polite but are also very passionate about what they do. There’s never a dull moment when you stay at Mad Monkey Hostel.
2. Delicious Food
Mad Monkey has a pretty impressive menu that includes salads, wraps, pastas, sandwiches, and full meals. If you want to enjoy international dishes with a hint of Filipino flavors, the Filipino fusion restaurant on the roof deck is a must-try.
3. A Full-Service Bar
Mad Monkey has a full-service bar on the roof deck that serves concoctions you will surely love. Don’t forget to give their signature house drink Sinulog Slam a try. It’s awesome!
4. Solo, Group, and Private Accommodations
At Mad Monkey, you can choose between private rooms and dorm rooms. Dorm rooms can accommodate groups of up to 8 people. The dorm rooms are clean, well-appointed, and pretty affordable (hint: You can get a bed for as low as 650 pesos!)
