Very relaxed, amazing staff, awsome set up. Could of easily stayed there a month


The people are young and very friendly, all speak English. To move one has to aks around, sometimes the hotel can give you a ride for a small fee. Overall they are pretty good, I will have fun retuning there. If you have a low budget is ideal

Pros: Dorm rooms weren't too crowded with bunks. Plenty of bathrooms/showers. Two fully equipped kitchens. Outdoor pool! Friendly staff. Cons: Tiny bugs everywhere on everything. Far from the historic centre. When we were there we were the only guests.


really great atmosphere and vibe. I really enjoyed my time at the Funky Monkey hostel. I spent a week there. Great location in Mazatlan! i would for sure go back anytime!! thanks everyone for the sweet time.


From day 1until two days after my stay the staff and hostel felt so much like home. Salem coordinates things in a relaxed atmosphere, while his personal perform with a peaceful content attitude. Sasha and Anna, from Russia, methodically kept cleanliness on thier minds, doing thier work with a spring in thier step. Brian from Denmark , always addressing any fix-up needed in his gruff friendly manner; with help of Tomek from Poland, Zac from down under and surfer Tommy. I felt part of the vibe.
