Paradise for backpackers
by vanodrama on
This was my first ever solo trip as a backpacker and I was highly anxious before coming to goa. When I looked up Funky Monkey on the Internet, something about it made me calm and made me feel safe. And trust me, I was not disappointed. The location is obviously beyond perfect and the rooms are cozy and comfortable. But the people I met there makes it a place I wanna keep coming back to. The staff is super friendly and warm and they are always ready to help you out in whatever way they can. The best kind of people to chill with and at the same time party with. I learnt the value of good hospitality with this hostel and the value of excellent human connection. The vibe of the hostel is a unique experience on it's own. I wanna keep coming back to meet all the other regulars in the hostel and be part of the family of backpackers that call it home
Funky Monkey - A journey inside your soul.

Most people who are traveling to or through India are people in surch for new experiences, special encounters. People who want to kind of open their souls for things they feel exists, but haven't encountered yet. Open minded people, determened to fulfill their curiosity.
Now if you combine the above with a place, in this case a hostel, one that is situated in one of the most open minded areas in India - talking about Goa - it might end up as a revealing and pleasant journey inside your soul.
Funky Monkey Hostel was the hostel I choosed to stay and it became Home. Owner, manager, staff, they all became familiy to me. I mean, sure, there might be other hostels in Goa who, like Funky Monkey Hostel, will provide you with pretty cheap, suitable and clean accommodation, delicious indian food, chillout area and a rocking bar, beach and party nearby, yoga sessions, good and usefull information, special tours, bike rental and all of this stuff.
And yes, most of them will also treat you with a human based respect.
The difference with Funky Monkey Hostel is, they make you part of their beautiful open minded, sometimes chilled lazy, sometimes flashing energetic community, just by being themselves.
Ofcourse there is an owner, a manager and an executive manager, an "Aunti" who does the cleaning and cooks superb indian food, a young receptionist who tries to figure out how life realy works (LOL) - but it's this special family-atmo that they create while doing their job, that makes every visitor participate in this chilly family feeling.
To me it truly was a journey inside my soul, generated and inspired by Funky Monkey Hostel and all the sick minded beautiful people I met there.
A journey filled with love and well sheltered by the warm and tender environment that Roheat and his staff have manage to create.
Luv ye Funky Monkey, stay as you are, see ye soon at the BAR!

This hostel has everything one could ask for, the staff are so caring and fun loving people, the nature that surrounds this beautiful place, the animals who go out of their way to make sure you will never feel alone.
I'm really glad I found this hostel.
Best Hostel I've Been To

Booked a room for one night in November 2019, ended up staying 13.
I came back in March because it was so great.
Great location (just two minutes to the beach), perfect service, nice people and a lovely manager!
All in all just excellent.
I will definitely come back!
