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

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
