Property Description

Funky Babylon Backpackers has the coolest vibe in Montañita - great balance between a party atmosphere and a chill place to relax! It is the perfect spot to meet people from all around the world - from Argentina to Australia. We have a big social area on the terrace with TV and PS3, a nice garden with a barbecue, hammocks, and a ping pong table. A cheap bar with delicious Mojitos and cold beers! Here you can enjoy our Saturday BBQ nights, Sunday movie nights, Quiz nights, Beer Pong Championship tournament, and many more fun events!
We also provide a delicious breakfast for free with fresh fruits,toast with jam, tea and coffee.

The hostel has hot showers, free drinking water, excellent WiFi, book exchange, all kinds of games, and a big guest kitchen fully equipped with everything you need to cook - stove, oven, toaster, blender, etc. We provide different options of cheap dorms (all with A/C) and private rooms. Each dorm has personal security lockers.

Funky Babylon Backpackers is located 200 meters from the bus station, 1 min walk to the beach, and 2 mins walk to the town centre - just close enough to party and yet far enough to have a good night sleep.

Join us to be part of the family, a place you would easily like to stay longer than you expected!

    Funky Babylon is such a great place. Perfect location (far enough away from the music to not be up all night) but so close to the beach and the town center 2 mins walk away. Netflix and ps4 for hungover days and the kitchen has everything you need if you want to cook and save some money. And the icing on the top: Nicos amazing crepes in the morning. The frenchman does his home country proud, fruit and coffee to accompany, the perfect way to start the day

    One of the most welcoming hostels I have stayed in. The owner could not have been more helpful and friendly. Ideal location right next to the beach and the town. It’s a great place for a solo traveller, I wish I could have stayed longer.

    Nice friendly hostel in a good location close enough to the action but not in the thick of it. The French crepes with fresh fruit for breakfast were an awesome way to start the day. Room was a bit noisy from the traffic as it is close to the main road and not much insulation.
