Your cozy hideout surrounded by easy going and laid-back people. Meet like minded travellers over our daily dinner nights and lazy afternoons chilling in our coconut hut with a coconut iced coffee from our cafe or with an ice cold beer.

    Beautiful Hostel!!! Absolutely loved my stay at Mr Funks - Erin and Ninja made me feel welcome as soon as I arrived. The hostel is in the middle of the jungle but a close enough walk / tuktuk ride to the beaches nearby. They offer water refill and recycle which is lovely and the food nights were amazing! Some of the best food I have had on my travels... definitely do the cooking class with ninja! Be sure to try the Arrack attack cocktail in the evenings too - Harry knows what he's doing!

    You should stay here! Mr. Funk’s is by far the best hostel I have stayed at. I loved it so much, I’ve already returned and I’m sure Erin and Ninja haven’t seen the last of me. Surrounded by nature, but a close walk to the beach. The property has a really nice atmosphere there are plenty of comfortable places to chill or socialize depending on what you. The hostel is very clean and well maintained. They have water refill, proper coffee and a delicious falafel night! Thanks for your hospitality!

    Erin and Ninja are doing such a cool job here, a little jungle retreat not too far from the beach. Good dinner nights and friendly volunteers here too. Wifi isnt too bad. Jazzie the dog is gorgeous. Highly recommend. I've extended another 2 nights already

    We had a great time at Mr. Funks! It’s such a lovely, relaxing space away from the hustle and bustle of the main strip. The breakfast was yummy and our hosts were always happy to give help/recommendations when needed. We would definitely recommend this chilled out hostel for anyone heading to Unawatuna!

    Nice hostel for the backpacker on a budget. The staff is amazing, helpful and friendly. Makes authentic local breakfast and dinner. The vibe is very laidback and relaxed. Go here for a quiet stay and good talks - not a hostel with bigger tours and lots happening. For us the facilities were a bit too low standard and we were a bit disappointed that the private room was just two beds with walls not going all the way up, thus not very private - please emphasize that in the description.

    I had a pleasant time here. The owners are lovely and it has a great atmosphere. It's about a 30 minute walk to the beach which was further than I expected. The beds are very uncomfortable and need upgrading. I would recommend staying here if your main priority is a great atmosphere.
