Superior comfort and quality:
Highest quality available Pillow Top mattresses, considered by many to be their best sleep in months.
The rooftop terrace with hammocks is perfect for sunsets, chilling in one of the hammocks or the swinging day bed, and the rooftop fire pit is great for after dark drinks and stories from world travelers & backpackers.
The swimming pool, with it's waterfall & lounge chairs, is a perfect solution for almost any reason you can think of; plus it has an amazing hammock hanging on the waterfall that greatly helps with Margarita Time.

    Funky Monkey hostel is where you want to be if your stopping in Mazatlan. I was immediately greeted with kind smiles and good vibes by Anna and guests who where there when I arrived. I was given a tour and felt immediately comfortable and at home which is always a huge bonus when travelling solo. Salem (the owner) , Zach and Adam who all run the hostel where equally as kind and the best hosts you could ever ask for! They are kind , fun, hilarious and willing to accommodate any traveller as best

    This hostel is certainly a highlight! It is worth every penny. Location is excellent, price is fair and staff is helpful. It's got a pretty nice decoration and an amazing atmosphere. One of the best hostels I've ever been at. Highly recommendable!

    Funky Monkey hostel is easily the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in. From the beginning the staff and other backpackers were extremely friendly, which created a close communal/family vibe. The setup is great too, with communal areas to hangout or private areas for alone time. I planned to stay 3 nights, and ended up staying for 8 because of how awesome everyone was. I would 1000% recommend anyone to stay at this hostel! I

    My husband Josh and I had an unforgettable stay at Funky Monkey Hostel. We were greeted immediately upon arrival with a big smile and a welcome from every single staff member. The hostel is situated in an incredibly safe area in the Golden Zone, just a short walk to the beautiful beaches. The best part of our stay was talking to the owner Salem and his employees. We felt like we had been invited to a family's home, and they made us feel so welcomed. We would definitely recommend it!

    This was a great hostel to stay at. Salem, Zach and all the volunteers made this a pretty awesome stay. There were often group outings arranged by the hostel. Also the atmosphere felt like i was just hanging out with friends I hadn't seen in a while. I really can't say enough good things about Funky Monkey Hostel

    The staff was very helpfull; all volunteers so easy going philosophy. The sheets were not smelling fresh. If you are looking for authentic streets and fresh food, leave the zona dorada and go to the old town.
