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

We had to book last minute Hostel in Guayaquil for two people. We were a bit worried for a low rating, but it was the only option. I am very glad we booked this place. It is very nice, friendly place to stay. Nice clean rooms, shared bathroom with shower, nice kitchen full of equipment and friendly staff. The place... More

Funky Monkey in Guayaquil is the best hostel if you're on a budget. It's within walking distance of the airport and is fantastic if you're in transit. I stayed here for several weeks when I was in Guayaquil and while this hostel lacks some of the charm you find in other hostels in Ecuador, it's functionality and proximity to the... More

Only stayed one night after a long bus ride. After being shown to our cramped room we were kept awake by the loud music of the staff. The following morning we showered and left briefly for breakfast. When we came back we walked into a building site; the shower room wall knocked down and rubble in our bedroom! Checked out... More

If you are planing to stay for a long time I recommend another hostel, but for a few day is good. Good location near the airport if you are traveling, no stress, and cheap. Is a nice small hostel that don't make troubles for locations.

We selected this hostal for its location. It is very close to the airport and to the main bus terminal, Terminal Terreste. We were in Guayaquil for one night to connect with an internation bus to Peru and stayed here. The hostal is also one short block from a major indoor mall. No complaints, it was pretty much as advertised.... More

I stayed in the Funky Monkey for three nights. Overall....it was a pretty bad and uncomfortable experience. Firstly the noise. I've stayed in all types of hostels including the wild party hostels but this was the noisiest hostel I had ever stayed at. I took to wearing ear plugs in the day just to block some of it out for...
