Located at The Funky Monkey Hostel in
All smoking is to be done outside at all times.
This was not my cup of tea. Lots of weird people checking in. Saw people smoking pot, talking loud at late times of the night. I'm not coming back here again for sure. They tried to make it took hip but it actually looked trashy and felt unsafe.
Response from Salem:
It was a pleasure hosting Jorge, he was very respectful of the property and never once stated he had any issues with anything. It a real shame when guest leave such bad reviews after they leave and never once say anything to your face. Drugs are never allowed here, EVER. No need to say more. Weird people? This location is a hostel and we have the pleasure of hosting many different guest from all over the world, all of which are different and have amazing stories. I feel sad that this was not something he could enjoy and would rather find fault in their diversity and ethnic back ground. Racism is never an attractive attribute. After seeing this side of him it would be best if my guest never met someone like him.
This hostel is perfect for a traveler looking for a sense of a community. The staff goes out of its way to make the guests feel welcome, offer suggestions, and even invite the guests to various activities. The place is perfect for those looking to socialize and to be within walking distance from the beach.
I just stayed in the room for a night but I wish I have stayed longer. The hostel itself is super cool. It has a swimming pool which is right beside the room, so we could have accessed it easily. The hostel has also a rooftop terrace which is a perfect place to chill out in the evening and watch a sunset. The owner of the place and the managers made sure we had everything what we needed. The owner took us for an amazing dinner with the other guests which was very sweet. We had lots of privacy in the room and very comfortable double beds. I m quite picky about the quality of mattress cause of my back problems. This ones was top one:) Plus everything was super clean and well kept. We had towels provided and there was also an laundry service there to we could wash our stuff after a long trip. There is a kitchen and private bathroom, which makes it feel like it's your own place. There is an air conditioning there and fans so the place is really cool. I personally loved the fact that we could meet other people and feel the vibe of the hostel, listen to people stories etc. But as we had private studio for us we had our privacy too if we needed. The hostel is situated in really safe area with walking distance to the beach, what is also really convenient. We will definitely come back any in the future! Loved the place and the vibe. So far our favourite place!
