A backpacking experience in Kampot,Cambodia is something ineffable. Its laid back vibe is something that can never be experienced in any other part of the world. Offering a mix of colonial era French architecture, vibrant nature, and an ideal party place, Kampot is away from the popular Cambodian locales, and is gradually attracting a lot of backpackers.
The following hostels in Kampot are welcoming the party goers.
Mad Monkey Kampot
With a pretty big swimming pool by the side of the bar, pool party is always an option. But having just one bar in a backpackers hostel is too mainstream. Mad Monkey has got one more bar, which is a rooftop bar. Backpackers who have stayed there swear by it, as it is one of the best places in Kampot to gaze at the sun as it sets. Partying under the multicolored twilight sky is absolutely euphoric. The hostel also does tours around Kampot. The entire property is clean and safe. A night stay in a dorm will cost you USD 6 here.
Arcadia Backpackers Kampot
Calmly nestled about seven kilometers from the Kampot town, by the banks of the Preaek Teuk Chhu river. Arcadia is one of the most popular destinations in Kampot for partying. Its bar has the company of a rope swing, a water slide, a pool table, a dart board, a kayak, few hammocks, and bunkers which look like a hybrid of modern and prehistoric design. It is more like a petite water park, and is my favourite party hostel in Kampot Asia. The drinks and food are relatively expensive, though. It is ideal for laid-back backpackers.
A bed in a dorm will cost you USD 7 here.
Situated at a walkable distance from Kampot, Monkey Republic offers the best dorms in Kampot.

Its bar is the most happening place in the hostel’s premises, and is ideal for all kinds of backpackers.

High Tide (Bluefrog) Bar Hostel
Bluefrog Bar Hostel is a new hostel located in the outskirts of Kampot, right beside the river. It is a decent place for partying. The staffs are nice and genuinely show efforts to please the guests. Since it is set by the banks of the river, it is a great party place, and spending time sitting by the river as the sun sets is a must.Being away from the town, one can enjoy one’s time here away from the hustling and bustling city life.
