    Bunk yard was one of if not the best accommodation we had on our trip! All of the staff are so friendly and want to help you. The rooms are clean and kept clean every day. Great location right in the heart of cinnamon gardens but tucked away so you don’t get the full noise at night. We loved it so much at Bunk yard we stayed here twice. Great value for money and a fun place to stay too.

    Bunkyard Hostel is an amazing place to stay! A nice and clean hostel with a really nice common area. Located in central Colombo and a small ride away from wherever you may want to go. The best thing about the hostel was the staff! My friend fell really ill and they were so supportive and so friendly. Would definitely stay here again if I go back to Colombo!

    This is a nice clean hostel but not the most social I have come across. Maybe bad timing... however the staff are so great. If you need something they are fantastic. Just watch out for tuktuk drivers outside trying to scam you.

    Pros: Wonderful staff and very good facilities. Cons: Would not recommend for budget backpackers. Location is not very walk-able, being in an area with mostly embassies. Not many food locations within a short walk. Hostel charges more to refill water bottles than to just buy new ones.

    Nice vibe to this hostel and the staff are helpful and friendly. The room was fine, although the bathroom door didn’t shut properly which wasn’t ideal when sharing with strangers! It’s about a 20 minute walk from town, above the lake, which I thought was a nice location, to be out of the bustle of the city
