Learning & Fun


I have stayed in FM for nearly 3 months and will remember it as a wonderful experience. The Hostel has a truely unique atmosphere and is perfectly suited for someone who looks for a mix of fun and relax in exchange of a fair dose of his/her skills.
Workload differed throught my stay and was highly dependent on how busy the hostel was. Nonetheless, even on busiest days a great team of volunteers made daily responsibilities feel like fun.
I believe the great atmosphere of FM wouldn't be possible without its owners. Always friendly, helpful and thankful for your hard work. Thanks B&J!

The best summer of my life! Sagres is beautiful, the hostel is great I have nothing to complain about, it was a great experience to spend some time at Funcky monkey the owners Borja and Jesus are great men and they helped me so much I just have to thank them for the great experience!

Funky Monkey is definitely one of the hostels you should add on your 'must go' list if you enjoy nature and surfing! The staff is great - likewise Borja and Jesus, the owners. They're all funny and really helpful when it comes to your needs during your stay. The work is also easy peasy. Just get your shift done and you'll have all day long to enjoy the waves from Sagres and hang out in the bars. Unfortunately, I couldn't stay there as much as I had planned, although it became a special place where I'll definitely come back! Hands down for you guys, thanks for the amazing time!

Best hostel! Couldn't stay the whole time, because of personal health problems, but this was by far the best hostel I've stayed in and I would love to come back sometimes.
Worked 4 hours a day and that with the best Staff and Hosts :)
Already miss them and dream of coming back! :)

Hey it's all fun here. You work 4 hrs and get to work with really chill and outgoing people. Depending on your position you could be cleaning, performing maintenance, or being the receptionist. All jobs require cleaning but it's not bad at all. You'll sleep in a tent and your first day is a free day where you don't work. You'll have plenty of time to learn to surf. The staff is chill man. Borja and Jesus are really easy going and all they ask is that you do your job and maintain a friendly and tranquil environment..
