The amazing vibe is created by the super cool staff and chilled out style of the hostel. Graffiti on the walls, sofas for when you wanna watch docos on netflix, smoothies that do delivery. OMG!! The whole building is spotless and also the pool, which was the best for chilling in during the day. Rooftop is perrfect for pizzas, beers and sunsets. My friend and I were shown some of the best spots in the city; microbreweries, view points, bars, seafood markets, restaurants. Really loved every aspect of this hostel, I wish I had more time! Thank you all so much!

Perfect, amazing and wonderful, homely, chilled and relaxing, fun, excitement and entertaining ...... I could keep going, everything you want in a hostel is here.

First and foremost the staff, totally amazing, friendly and helpful, you just want to be in their company at all times, they make you feel its your home and you are part of the family, if they are going camping you're going camping, if they are going to the water park you're going to the water park , you get the drift here, AMAZING!!

Secondly the pool is super clean at all times and is perfect day or night, I love it!!

Third is the rooftop, swinging bed, hammocks, loungers, pizza oven, BBQ and a hidden gem that you can walk up to and watch the sun go down over Mazatlan, also great for yoga or training in the morning.

Forth is location, in the golden zone (one of the nicest and friendliest places in Mazatlan) ten minutes walk from the beach, bars and restaurants, banks, buses and shops, everything is just so convenient.

Fifth is the fact that you can simply rent a kayak or a surf board for the day from the guys here, and you can use one of the bicycles they have and take a ride up the Malacon into el centro.

For me personally it has everything you want and need in a hostel and its in the perfect spot if you really want to see Mazatlan, rooms are simple or homely, nice and cozy, and all have AC, free wifi, breakfast is free, you can have a party on the rooftop or just chill, you get the best of both if you want it, Funky Monkey family dinners, nights out or just a sunset on the beach.
I loved it and everyone who has passed through has also.

Oh! and you get a free supply of fresh mangos if you find them hehe!!

Salem, Mags and Gisele and the gang just made my stay even better.

Thank you guys :)

Room Tip: Private, Semi-Private and dorms, it all depends on what you want from your hostel experience!

My Stay: Mid-June 2017. I think the title says it all. The place is totally chilled, great common areas, all clean, offers bungalows, dorms, tents if desired. They rent out surf equipment and bicycles. They also have a bar at night and further facilities like a brick-grill, roof terrace. But above all, the staff and crowd is great! Best Days in Portugal!!

Room Tip: They have various types of rooms - ask for a tent and you'd be surprised how relaxed that is.

We stayed at Funky Monkey for a couple of days and we really enjoyed our visit. Salem and his crew were really helpful and like an extra family for us. The Hostel I located near the beach and in a great neighborhood. Everything is clean, and the pool is awesome. You have to stay here!

Excellent hostel! The staff were super nice, Wi-Fi worked well, breakfast was good, close to the beach and shops, and the pool was actually working! Good overall vibe, and I actually extended my stay. Highly recommend.
