I cannot honestly say that I have stayed here, so the extent of my review is limited in scope. I have been to Thailand three times, always for a month, or more each time. I have stayed at many different places throughout the country. I stopped by the Funky Monkey to inquire about a room and the facility in general.... More

Hello Bob, I am very surprised about this feedback & i am confused as to your recollection of our conversation. When you called in to ask about rooms, I answered all of your questions about our room rate & also explained about the differences in rooms eg balconies etc. During our conversation you asked if you could see the rooms...

Upon arrival, we were greeted with a warm reception from David, Nuy and staff. Immediately we were offered information on the cities hotspots to eat, see and visit. As we had just arrived in Thailand , this was unbelievably helpful. Throughout the stay we were made to feel very welcome and offered assistance whenever needed. Nuy and her staff made... More

We stayed at the funky monkey after reading great reviews on trip advisor. Believe the hype, this place is hands down the best place we've stayed. The hosts David, Nuy, Fatdog and Muttley are without doubt the finest hosts we've encountered in all of our travels. When we first arrived David spent time to find out what kind of trip... More

We stayed at the funky monkey after reading great reviews on trip advisor. This place more than exceeded our expectations. David, Nuy, Fatdog and Muttley are the finest hosts we've encountered in all our travels. So much so that after returning from a trip to Pai (which David arranged transport for) it truly felt like coming home. On arrival David... More

Hi David & Nuy!!! We just got back to the rat race in NY. We wanted to share about our wonderful time in Chiang Mai. David, Nuy, Mutley & Fatdog were great hosts. From the recommendation of local food places & basically everything else, the delicious banana pancakes, to Happy Elephant, Funky Monkey was hands down one of the top... More

Nuy and David were perfect Hosts to us. They helped us so much with a lot of hints for good Restaurants and organized our Elephant Mahut Training at Woody´s. And as we didnt find a taxi in the early morning to get to the Airport, David gave us a ride for free!!! Thx again for this David. The rooms are... More

I was recommended the Funky Monkey by a friend who stayed there during their trip to Chiang Mai and spoke positively about their experience and the unbelievable value for money. I contacted David and Nuy on their website in the summer and enquired about booking two rooms for the Chiang Mai leg of our holiday in November. David contacted me... More

We lucked out getting into this guesthouse as we only booked last minute and they happened to have a cancelation. This guesthouse offers everything you need (good location, nice clean room, helpful staff, really good wifi, etc) and a whole lot of things you don't need but that are nice to have (like a massive room, endless free fruit and...

We only stayed one night which is a shame as the place was amazing value for money. You basically get a loft to yourself. There are only four rooms in this massive building. AC. Big fridge, fans, good internet, very clean throughout, separate hot shower. Free drinking water, fruit, sweets, tea and coffee. David and his wife are really helpful... More

I couldn't believe how nice and spacious our room was for the price! The room had everything you need and even a sofa. Great location. And great hosts who will provide any info you need. The room was also cleaned every day which I didn't expect for such a good price. I also recommend doing David's tour that he created.... More
