Stayed here three nights. Very nice location within walking distance of airport (15 mins) and new bus terminal (30 mins). Big shopping centre just around the corner for those that prefer to do grocery shopping and cook their own meals in the kitchen (small but sufficient to get cooking done). Quiet neighbourhood and English-speaking owner make it a practical stop-over... More

I was looking for a hostel close to the airport and to the bus Terminal, and of course with a good environment, good price and in a safe place. I found it. It is called the Funky Monkey hostal. IT seems that this hostal is related to the one in Montanita. So I would definitively recomment it !

I wasn't expecting much of this hostel due to the reviews. I only stayed the night, less than 12 hours but for a stopover from the airport or bus station it's perfect! Good wifi, I was in the 4 bed dorm which has plenty of space, a fan and a comfy and clean bed. My taxi driver did have trouble... More

We stayed here for 1 night before our Galápagos flight and had been travelling for 2 days so just wanted some sleep. The receptionist and his friends were playing music and laughing/ talking loudly until 2am - it's. Small place so you can hear everything. Around 4am who I assume we're more friends began banging on the door outside, ringing... More

I am used to budget hostels but we found this exceptionally basic. The bunk beds were very uncomfortable, the one fan in the room did nothing to keep it cool. Although there is wifi there are no computers or communal areas. We found the owner of the hostel was not very accomodating, we asked for a map, which he didnt... More

The hostel is very basic. No computer area no breakfast, basic kitchen.. The owner wasn't so nice to us although we came 4 and asked to stay for few nights when he didn't really had much work anyway.. We didn't like him! And it was quite expensive . The only really good thing about the hostel is that it's close... More

15 dollars each was a Little too much. The rooms look more like cellblocks buth have a private bathroom with a good shower. Also an airco included. And like I have seen Many times. A pool without water. The service is fine Buth I slept in nicer hostels for 7 dollars.

After a long overnight bus we arrived at this hostel tired and exhausted. It was poorly signed but we rang the bell and were met by someone who worked there. He looked at us and told us "you know check in isn't untill 12?" We told him we were aware but this was the time our bus had gotten us... More

For the dorm rooms you need to go outside. Sucks when it rains. They need to supply maps of the area to help find your way around. Better information on the buss transit would also be helpful. There is no camping at the Funky Monkey. The kitchen is alright..

Pros: - close to airport - mall next door - kitchen Cons: - No shared area - staff unfriendly - one shower- no where to hang towel, clothes. Shower curtain rail falls down whilst showering or if you hang your towel on it - dorm rooms are soooo hot with one tiny fan. - noisy as people chat in rooms... More
