We selected this hostal for its location. It is very close to the airport and to the main bus terminal, Terminal Terreste. We were in Guayaquil for one night to connect with an internation bus to Peru and stayed here. The hostal is also one short block from a major indoor mall. No complaints, it was pretty much as advertised....

My opinion is good! The room was clean, with cool air, and I passed few days here for visiting the city. I recommended it for the price and the practicity of the place. Ty funky monkey hostal! I recommended it for the place near the airport, terminal bus and the proximity of mall and restaurants

I stayed in the Funky Monkey for three nights. Overall....it was a pretty bad and uncomfortable experience. Firstly the noise. I've stayed in all types of hostels including the wild party hostels but this was the noisiest hostel I had ever stayed at. I took to wearing ear plugs in the day just to block some of it out for...

i chose this hostal because it was the cheapest and nearest to the airport. and in these categories the funky monkey wins. I cant believe the taxi found it, there was no sign outside, just a sticker on the door. when a group of three of us (girls) walked in, the owner and his friends were drinking and told us...

Being a first time, solo female traveler, i was a bit worried arriving there at midnight but jorgan, who was running this place was awsome and super friendly. I had to catch a flight to cuenca the following morning and he was nice enough to accompany me to the airport.

This place is OK for an overnight stay, but I did not really like it. After traveling almost 20 hours I just wanted to have clean little room with a bed, a shower and a bit of silence. Well, the room was OK, the bathroom is dirty, but no silence. After 10 pm the owner's friends were coming continually, they...

It is a budget option with friendly people and a relaxing pool. We did see a wild Iguana in the little garden :) People who go to Backpacker hostels in South America (especially with a garden) should not be too surprised about cockroaches. its natural and hard to control. The location is kind of hard to find but our taxi...

A very hip and young hostel, with a young owner that welcome everybody with warmth! The location is close to the bus terminal and the airport, with hot showers, clean toilets, and the best thing - sweet cat!!! next to the hostel there is a big shopping mall, with big cinema, supermarket & etc...the only problem is that the taxi...

My wife and I arrived in Guayaquil after a long day of flights from Michigan. Arriving at the hotel, we were greeted by the owner who was not only friendly and accommodating, but went out of his way to ensure that we had what we needed for our brief stay. (We were only booked one night as we are traveling...
