    I liked this hostel because it wasn’t that big and everyone got to know each other really quickly. The staff are really friendly and down to Earth. Erin is a lovely lady, Ninja makes the best Dahl in the whole of Sri Lanka & Shandy offers the best tours around town. He’s a real gem. Would definitely come back here !

    I was at Mr Funks for 3 nights and loved my stay here. There is a very social vibe and the host Ninja is very chilled and friendly. The free breakfast is traditional Sri Lankann and is very good as is the dinner nights that are a great way to socialise with the other guests. Stay at Mr Funks if you are looking for a chilled vibe and want to meet cool people.

    Only stayed one night at Mr Funk’s but I wish I’d been able to stay longer!! The hosts, Erin and Ninja are so welcoming and knowledgeable about the local area. They make you feel so at home. The iced coffees are to die for and Ninja’s rice and curry is incredible! Thank you so much for an amazing stay, can’t wait to come back!

    Great Hostel, clean, comfortable beds, lovely out door shower. The owner Ninja, chilled out very helpful, excellent cook! Booked for one night stayed two. The hostel is located on top of the mountain, the beach is on the other side of the mountain, hence the walk around the mountain to get to the beach. If you are lucky you will see monkeys and maybe even a peacock, you will certainly hear them both on your walk!

    Absolutely love this place! Feels like home away from home :) Erin and Ninja who run the hostel are so friendly and helpful and made our stay so fun and relaxing. Free breakfast every morning, comfortable beds and an outdoor shower which is private but also gives a stunning view of the rainforest. Best of all, Lassie and Jazz, the two hostel dogs who we totally fell in with. So fun and friendly. Also very good value for money, short walk to the beach and excellent atmosphere! Would recommend!

    Mr. Funk's hostel was a friendly hostel in Unawatuna. The staff was nice and it was a very relaxed vibe. Our stay was as we expected. We would have liked to be closer to the beach (about 30 minute walk from hostel), but that was our bad for not checking the location closer.
