I like the Funky Monkey because of the location and the people. Group dinners, group outings, frequent trips to the beach. Many surfers there who can teach you a thing or two. Funky Monkey rents surfboards and kayaks much cheaper than those on the beach. Also, they have a

Hello Sam, normally there aren't any shuttles or Colectivos (white vans) that late but because of the Christmas holidays they might be running later then normal. A taxi might be the best option, its around 400 pesos (20 USD) for the 30 min drive, or you can try Urber but I'm not sure if they pick up at the airport considering the taxis hate them and the taxis run the airport. Please send us a message on our facebook page as we check it much more often and can reply lots faster. Since your arriving after our reception hours please message us on fb 1 day before so we can arrange someone to check you in after our normal hours. See you soon :-)

There sure is. We have a secured area fenced in where we always allow our adventure riders to park their bikes.

Not at this time. I've taken the shuttle on a road trip down the coast for a month long trip. There are many white van taxis that only cost 100 pesos per person from the airport. Please contact us via our Facebook page or email at funkymonkeyhostel @ yahoo to make a reservation or you can book on hostelworld.

"Private, Semi-Private and dorms, it all depends on what you want from your hostel experience!"
"They have various types of rooms - ask for a tent and you'd be surprised how relaxed that is."
"They have both private and dorm style rooms."
"Rooms on the upstairs are quieter then the downstairs."
"All the rooms are fine but are mainly dorms, there are 2 separate lounge areas, 1 upstairs and 1 downstairs. Both are by the rooms."
$17 - $45 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
