We were very much looking forward to stay at Funky Monkeys as the description sounded great and the pictures looked really nice. Upfront conclusion: The rooms are alright, not too big and just tidy enough, but definitely not as nice as they look on the pictures provided on the website. We would have accepted this, if everything else was fine. But we are sorry to say that this hostel was probably the most anonymous and unfriendliest hostel we have stayed in during a month in South Africa. Hardly anybody of the staff talks to you, everybody seems annoyed if you have questions, nobody explains anything to you… you really had the feeling of so not being welcome. The lounge area might have been nice in summer or during the world cup, but when we stayed there, it was just anonymous and cold. Apart from that, nothing more to say except the internet connection which is being very bad (hardly possible to check your emails).
