It's a chill place for backpackers. The staff were really helpful and friendly. They have their own bar and we enjoyed the gig on Sunday night. Met some great souls and made some cool friends there. Overall a great experience.
Superclean place, super awesome staff and they have the best chilling out place under the mango tree for hanging around all day long. The whole place lights up at night with amazing ambience! Going back soon for sure!!
If u really want to enjoy in Goa,Anjuna is the best place to commute from and in Anjuna'funky monkey'is the hostel to stay in.You will get to experience a friendly and caring management that you will get bound to visit there again. It's very spacious. You can sit in the backyard and chill, it's so peaceful out there. And yes, pets are also there to take care of you:)
This was my first ever solo trip as a backpacker and I was highly anxious before coming to goa. When I looked up Funky Monkey on the Internet, something about it made me calm and made me feel safe. And trust me, I was not disappointed. The location is obviously beyond perfect and the rooms are cozy and comfortable. But the people I met there makes it a place I wanna keep coming back to. The staff is super friendly and warm and they are always ready to help you out in whatever way they can. The best kind of people to chill with and at the same time party with. I learnt the value of good hospitality with this hostel and the value of excellent human connection. The vibe of the hostel is a unique experience on it's own. I wanna keep coming back to meet all the other regulars in the hostel and be part of the family of backpackers that call it home❤️…
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 indian food, chillout area and a rocking bar, beach and party nearby, yoga sessions, good and usefull information, special tours, bike rental and all of this stuff. And yes, most of them will also treat you with a human based respect. The difference with Funky Monkey Hostel is, they make you part of their beautiful open minded, sometimes chilled lazy, sometimes flashing energetic community, just by being themselves. Ofcourse there is an owner, a manager and an executive manager, an "Aunti" who does the cleaning and cooks superb indian food, a young receptionist who tries to figure out how life realy works (LOL) - but it's this special family-atmo that they create while doing their job, that makes every visitor participate in this chilly family feeling. To me it truly was a journey inside my soul, generated and inspired by Funky Monkey Hostel and all the sick minded beautiful people I met there. A journey filled with love and well sheltered by the warm and tender environment that Roheat and his staff have manage to create. Luv ye Funky Monkey, stay as you are, see ye soon at the BAR!…
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
