One of the greatest places we stayed during our 3 weeks in Thailand. David and Nuy went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. They made us feel right at home. Gave us great advice on tours, places to eat, etc. The private tour with Sakorn was definitely a highlight. During our stay in Chang Mai we ran into... More

Great, no nonsense guesthouse that is as good as all the reviews. It is exactly as described on their website. From the email correspondence prior to our arrival to arranging for the taxi to take us to the airport on our departure the service was excellent. We stayed here for 5 nights and David and Nuy make it feel like... More

Sorry for the late review!! I stayed here in May and it could not have been better. David & Nuy are wonderful hosts. The rooms are huge and it is also a great location. I was greeted every morning with a drink (best pineapple shake in Thailand!) David and Nuy go out of their way to make your stay the... More

Stopped here as a group of four guys travelling Thailand and have no complaints. Very friendly owners. When we arrived David sat down with us and talked us through a map of the city to help us get our bearings, he also gave us some good tips on places to eat which was useful. Good sized room and clean shower,... More

Having visited Chiang Mai three years in a row, my husband and I keep returning to the Funky Monkey Guesthouse because it is simply the best and fantastic value for money. Its small with only three rooms and the owners David and Nuy are a great couple – not to forget Fat Dog and Mutley. The location is good, in... More

Me and my wife didn't actually stay here, we were actually staying at a hostel across the road which I won't name but sadly our hostel weren't competent enough to even arrange a scooter, bike or anything for us. This is where David and his wife Nuy thankfully stepped in to help as they were across the road. We can't... More

Me and my girlfriend came to stay at the Funky Monkey as part of our travels around Thailand, having been to a few different guest houses in the area we can honestly say that Funky Monkey guesthouse provided us with our best experience. The rooms were clean and spacious, upon arrival the owner sat us down and took us through... More

Get in if you can! Funkey Monkey is the best of the best of budget accommodation in Chiang Mai. My family stayed in 3 different CM guesthouses in this price range, all with great trip advisor reviews, and the difference was enormous. Funky monkey was like staying in a mid range hotel (albeit a tiny one). They provided us a... More

I stayed at the Funky Monkey for two nights on an all-too-brief visit to Chiang Mai. Wish I'd stayed longer. David and Nuy are terrific hosts (despite David's misguided loyalty to Sheffield United FC), and they went out of their way to make me feel welcome - which is not always the experience for solo travellers. The Funky Monkey has... More

Stayed here for one night on our way back from Pai. David and Nuy were such great hosts and made us feel at home immediately. The rooms are huge and clean, the beds extremely comfy too. I'd definitely recommend everyone to stay here and book in advance to avoid disappointment.
