This was maybe the 4th time I have stayed with David and Nuy, each time visiting with different friends so they can experience Chiang Mai. Once again the rooms were cleaned everyday and the facilities the same as always - big rooms, clean bathrooms and a large fridge and good aircon and fans in the room. Rooms are ideal for... More

We stayed at Funky Monkey as a couple for four nights in July. From helping us book tours, to restaurant and local advice, to morning chats over (great) coffee, David and Nuy were outstanding hosts and go out of their way to ensure their guests feel at home. Our room was impeccably clean, huge and comfortable with great AC that... More

We were travelling as a group of 3 young girls and visited Chang Mai quite early in our travels around Thailand. We were really looking forward to Chang Mai and staying at the Funky Monkey as we had heard so many good things about it! It certainly lived up to its reputation! We arrived early in the morning having taken... More

Our stay (4 days) started with a welcome drink offered by David and Nuy. David told us some of his Chiang Mai "top secrets" and gave us a detailed, self made map with places where to eat best, including vegetarian restaurants, food markets and everything else one would wish for. The room itself was very very big and super clean... More

The best experience I've ever had of a guesthouse/hotel/Bnb/hostel/not sleeping in my own bed. Incredible service from both David and nuy, both really down to earth and genuinely nice people. Really enjoyed chatting to them both and found them to be full of useful tips and info but also just generally cool people to talk to and learn from. David... More

Their guesthouse is clean, the rooms are comfortable, and the food is great. It is situated down a cozy little soi right off the mote that is... More

This place was great. Not only were we able to snag a room last minute, but we were able to check in early and get advice on our daily excursions. The room was spacious, clean, and well stocked with toilette paper. We had a group of three and could have fit up to 5 in our room. The owners David... More

Really enjoyed our stay. Very simple accommodation--was just what we were looking for. The hosts took 10 minutes and walked us through the city using a few maps. They even pointed out a few lesser known gems in the city. Its location is nice and close to the old town area.

This guesthouse was perfect; massive rooms in a great location, near everything you want to see in Chiang Mai, but still quiet and peaceful for a great nights sleep. Book all your trips through them, they work out cheaper, you are guaranteed to get the best possible experience, and they can suggest some things you may not have considered. I... More
