The Funky Monkey Guesthouse was one of the best accommodations I've had during my travels. Both David and Nuy were fantastic hosts helping with bookings, information about tours, and recommendations on where to eat. David provides an excellent introduction when you reach the Guesthouse and provides very useful maps. The Convenient location meant everything we needed was in walking distance... More

Nuy and David were the greatest hosts. When we arrived, David took the time to go over a map of Chiangmai and recommended numerous restaurants and places to see. He did not steer us wrong with any of his recommendations. The location of the guesthouse is excellent and the room was spacious and clean. Nuy's daily smoothies were such a... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Funky Monkey for a week after having seen the fantastic reviews on-line and it exceeded our expectations! David and Nuy were lovely hosts, incredibly helpful and welcoming. We were given advice on what to do and places to eat but also were not pushed to do tours and left to our own devices... More

David and Nuy could not have been more welcoming. Within 10 minutes of our arrival David had armed us with a personalised map and honest local advice on all that was to do and eat! in Chaing Mai. Room was spacious, thankfully quite and had all that any family could need to hand including a family size fridge full of... More

We stayed at Funky Monkey over two years ago and still think about how great our time was there. We have done a decent amount of traveling since then and Funky still holds up to be one of the best places we have stayed. Dave and Nuy are wonderful people and are what really makes Funky Monkey such a great... More

I booked this guest house due to the overwhelming popularity on TA and was so pleased as it lived up to all the positive comments that everyone has posted. On arrival Nuy went through their personalised map with us and pointed out all the POIs. All of these that we tried out were spot on and it was really useful... More

My husband and I stayed at the Funky Monkey for 5 nights as part of our honeymoon. We usually stay in hotels, and this was our first experience at a guest house. Needless to say, we were blown away by how much David and Nuy went above and beyond for us. Upon arriving, David offered us a complimentary drink and... More

My friend and I have been traveling in Thailand for a while and staying at the Funky Monkey has been a great experience. The rooms are big, clean and spacious and the beds are comfortable which is all you could want in terms of accommodation. The guesthouse is in a great location just outside the old city. There are shops,... More

David and Nuy make this place amazing. I came to Chiang Mai (April-May) with a group of friends--we took the overnight train from Bangkok. As soon as we arrived at the guesthouse, we were given complimentary nice, cold drinks and David sat down with us for an hour and gave us tons of tips, from dining, to nightlife, to markets,...
