Funkytown is great. Save, clean and a beautiful place to stay. Owner, senior staff and crew are very helpful and friendly. Location is fantastic. The rooms are outstanding. I will recommend Funkytown to all my surfer friends. I only wish there was a Funkytown everywhere. Nuff said. Marek

Amazing interior, very funky and neat rooms and a nice to look at bar and lounge. Lots of modern ART to discover. The view is not so nice and the property is squeezed between other buildings so it can´t "stand out" as much as it deserves to. It´s very central though so everything you need is in walking distance.

Thank you so much for your review. As you noted there is an upside to being so central in JBay. i.e. All the main restaurants, beach, shops and entertainment centre are within in walking distance of FunkyTown. Then we have our main beach for surfing, surfing lessons, rubber duckie rides to see the dolphins and watch the great surfers at... More

Good, comfortable and modern stay at Funky Town. Used the 2 bed appt for 1 night, which included key facilities eg, oven, toaster and hob. Also used communal hot tub after long journey. Would stay longer next time. Rob, the owner, gave good advice on local restaurants and activities. Single drive, so cars need to be jostled around depending on... More

Came here with my friend just for the night. Staff was so welcoming and knowledgable. The place is very chic with such great attention to detail-the art just tops it off. It has to be one of the best "flashpackers" in existence. Only 5 mins walk from a restaurant called the Greek. Best chicken wings I've ever had! I would... More

We just went there for a day without booking in advance and were very happy to get the stylish decorated, spacious and fully equipped penthouse.

For the price, the establishment can at least provide some form of breakfast. Nice room, but a bit over priced for out of season. No TV in room, only communal TV and kitchen down stairs. Parking also bit problematic to move vehicles early morning.

Great location, very secure with individually alarmed bedrooms. Pool area and garden was a real plus and immaculately kept. The communal lounge and kitchen were very modern and we felt comfortable using the internet there and having a chat to fellow guests. Customer service from the manager and cleaning staff was exceptional.
