My partner and I had a wonderful stay at Funky Monkey, the two owners could not have been more helpful! They were very knowledgeable and kind people who helped make our stay memorable and special. Our room was very comfortable and clean, it was a very cozy place to stay with great food! I cannot wait to stay again.

I was very excited to stay here after all the reviews, so I was shocked to find the owners rude and moody. :( There was no hot water, cockroaches and no one cleans the room (only changes the towels and takes out the trash). David was very helpful and sweet, but his wife!! For instance, when I asked her whether... More
