Funky Monkey is a fantastic hostel. The owners and restaurant staff are very friendly and accommodating. The place overall was clean, well taken care of and restaurant was delicious. The only recommendation I would have is to add a couple of umbrellas to the pool area. It's hard to find shade during the middle of the day.


I enjoyed my time at the Funky Monkey! The atmosphere was really laid back, and the staff are incredibly welcoming and friendly. If you are looking for a place to get a good nights sleep, do not stay in the dorm here. My dorm was directly above the restaurant, meaning that the late night parties (way past the supposed 10:30pm quiet time rule) made it impossible to go to sleep, and the early morning kitchen staff start playing music and talking by 7:30am. otherwise, this is a great option!


Santa Teresa has many places to stay, but Funky Monkey Lodge is one of a kind that is much more than your average hostel or hotel. It's an oasis of a resort, offering individuals and groups, a vacation stay that caters to all your needs with their excellent and caring staff, their amazing facilities, including a lap pool, yoga space, and top notch restaurant and bar serving up some of the freshest haute cuisine you'll find in Central America. Sushi night is a must!
