    The staff are super friendly and very helpful. The facilities are extremely clean and great value for money. Lance was really great and went the extra mile to make sure my stay was as pleasant as possible. I'd highly recommend a stay at bunkyard for a great overall experience in Colombo.

    Amazing hostel! The second I arrived I felt so welcome and at home. The hostel aesthetic and layout is amazing-beautiful art, handmade craft and clothing shop, balconies and open spaces. The dorms are the most spacious and comfortable dorms I haver ever stayed in, but the REAL MVP is the CAFE! The food is TO DIE FOR. It isn't a super busy/social place at least this time of year but definitely possible to hang around the lounge in the lobby and meet people. The staff are all so kind and helpful!

    Really enjoyed my stay here as a solo traveller. Central location, really easy to meet people, and the staff were helpful and friendly. The little cafe at the hostel was cheap and great quality. Highly recommend staying here - definitely made my stay in Colombo a lot better!

    Only reason atmosphere rating is lower is due to overall lack of people after the attack, which they can't do much - but would recommend anyone to go to Sri Lanka!

    Really clean hostel, delicious food, decent location. Wasn’t too much of an atmosphere as most travellers are just passing through to and from the airport. The AC goes on at night but can be turned on during the day. Would recommend!

    Very Good

    Overall comfortable stay at this hostel. Location isn't too far from many of the main attractions. Tuk tuts are necessary though. The common areas and rooms were kept pretty clean. Security can be improved. The only door that requires a key is the one to the stairs that lead to all of the rooms. The rooms do not lock. Some staff members were delightful, while others not so much. The onsite cafe is quite expensive for what you get. You can skip the tuk tuk city tour and probably do it yourself.
