Salem and his crew were very kind, rad, fun people. Good kick back vibes all around. Salem went out of his way to pick us up at the airport and show us around Mazatlan. Lots of group activities and a good sense of community at the hostel. The location was a tiny bit out of the way but you are definitely able to walk to the beach and if you want you can rent bikes from the hostel for a great price. The neighborhood where the hostel is located is quiet and safe. I recommend staying here!

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. Great atmosphere, can bring in your own drinks, great crowd. Staff let you do what you want and had some amazing restaurant / nightlife experiences. Swimming pool and breakfast were great too. Private room was huge and very comfortable!


Had a great stay at Funky Monkey. Informed and friendly staff for help in navigating Mazatlan. After long days exploring F/M was a fun place to kick back and relax. Large comfy lounge area with cable TV, fully equipped kitchen and awesome pool and chill area rooftop.

Had a really great time at this hostel. Salem the owner went out of his way to make us feel welcome and even arranged an awesome day trip for us and other guests to the local water park. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to other backpackers. Cheers again!
