Tropico Wiki

For buildings of the same name in other Tropico games, see Bunkhouse.

Bunkhouses are space saving shelters for the Tropicans on their way up the social ladder.


Normal Maintenance: Maintains respectable living conditions.
Roach Patrol: The housing quality is lowered by 30%, making it less attractive to live in.


Upon completion, these come with a few décor items; a tire stack and boxes. As time passes, they may accumulate clothes-lines, trash and/or a trash-can(rear side). Visually, they are akin to cheap motels with ~120 sq. ft. of living space for each household. Not something one wants to raise a family in but sufficient for temporary shelter.

In-Game Text


"This building has the looks and the living conditions of a barn. Cheap, quick to build and superior to the shacks, these Bunkhouses are still no alternative to decent housing."
