Most people who are traveling to or through India are people in surch for new experiences, special encounters. People who want to kind of open their souls for things they feel exists, but haven't encountered yet. Open minded people, determened to fulfill their curiosity. Now if you combine the above with a place, in this case a hostel, one that is situated in one of the most open minded areas in India - talking about Goa - it might end up as a revealing and pleasant journey inside your soul. Funky Monkey Hostel was the hostel I choosed to stay and it became Home. Owner, manager, staff, they all became familiy to me. I mean, sure, there might be other hostels in Goa who, like Funky Monkey Hostel, will provide you with pretty cheap, suitable and clean accommodation, delicious…
This hostel has everything one could ask for, the staff are so caring and fun loving people, the nature that surrounds this beautiful place, the animals who go out of their way to make sure you will never feel alone. I'm really glad I found this hostel.
Booked a room for one night in November 2019, ended up staying 13. I came back in March because it was so great. Great location (just two minutes to the beach), perfect service, nice people and a lovely manager! All in all just excellent. I will definitely come back!
Manager Rohit and Mushir are terrific and kind people. They make guests feel at home and they go above and beyond to provide top-notch service and accommodation especially if guests find themselves in a time of need. The Funky Monkey Hostel is highly recommended!! - Israel Kasnett
Me and my friends had such a great time in this hostel! Met so many nice people and had a lot of opportunities to socialize. The morning yoga was amazing and the bar in the middle too! Loved aaaall of it!
Something different and Open Well this is property is big compared to other just hostel things Pros: spacious property Cleanliness - yes. The dorm and washroom found clean Happy people - I have met many people there it was amazing to know them. Family culture - guest staying from long will welcome you. Very near to curlies A ready to use kitchen - big plus point. Cons: No direct access via bus. It is approx 3 km away from main connecting road and Goa is expensive for taxi. Need some renovation. But it is my opinion, some may like this way too. Common areas need some games or fun activities. In the end, I had a great stay. Receptionist: Deeksha and Rohit were nice and help you with all your query
Amazing experience stayed Der for 3 nights.. booked a 5 bed mix dorm room they upgraded me to 4 bed on same price.... Everything was amazing in this hostel from clean room to excellent location and polite and friendly staff... Special cheers to Deeksha and Rohit for managing it so well.. Will definitely visit again...
This place is right behind curly's in Anjuna. So amazingly peaceful and calm that you wouldn't feel like leaving it and going. The people working/volunteering are super friendly and helpful. You'll end up meeting new people from different places. Rooms are clean, comfortable, and cozy. It's cheap and the best place to stay if you are looking for hostel rooms. Also, the dogs in the hostel are fun company. I'm definitely going to stay here, the next time I am in Goa.
This was my first time at this hostel and boy was I happy with my choice! The people are so warm and helpful that you end up wondering why you’ve been staying anywhere else all this while... The rooms are spic and span much to my satisfaction and the food at Joe Banana was homely, satisfying. One can also rent a bike or car right there as they will connect you to the right people. The best part? The numerous dogs and cats for company :) Also, the proximity to the beach is absolutely wonderful. The people running the hostel are very respectful and professional which brings me to the point that, funkey monkey is going to be my hostel of choice for the foreseeable future.
Nice place with lot of open space, well maintained. Behind Curlies. I loved the conversation with Aunty over breakfast and going over history of Anjuna and Jo Banana. Diksha and team, and Jonas are wonderful host, had great time there. Will certainly come back in Jan 😀
