Funky monkey FAR exceeds the expectations for a hostel. Mazatlan has a jewel tucked away in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance from all the shopping , beach , nightlife and restaurants. Salem the owner is chill, friendly and constantly making improvements for his guests. We WILL be back !!
