Pretty nice place but upstairs unbelievably hot and no lockers are provided

Great staff. The lady working here was so lovely and helpful! Not that close to the airport, tuktuk is around 800 rupees which isn't too bad but not too cheap either.

This is a good place to stay if you're on you way to or coming from the airport. My flight landed in the early hours of the morning and a friendly taxi driver was sent to pick me up. A bit of a walk to the beach but worth it if you're passing through.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We literally couldn't recommend it enough. The bedrooms are clean with comfy beds. The location is incredible. Best of all is the family who run it. They made our stay unforgettable. They can't help you enough and are the sweetest family we've met. Sanje is THE funniest and nicest guy; we feel in love with him straight away and he made our stay amazing. His wife cooks delicious food which is a must try. If you are staying in Hikkaduwa you must stay here !!!

Fantastic staff sorted me out even though I arrived fairly late. Simply used to kill time until my flight early the next morning. Staff arranged a lift to the airport for me with a local family who were on their way anyway. Atmosphere was great and sat up chatting almost all night before setting off to the airport at 4am

Lady who runs the place is the most amazing person. You feel like at home. Only complain for the poor fans. It was hard to sleep because those small and old fans do not cool the rooms.

I emailed the hostel for the best way to get there at night. Instead they responded by confirming a taxi with them and they would wait for me at the airport. Outright shadiness! On top of that, when I arrived tired and sleepy, having taken a taxi myself from the airport, the lady of the hostel and taxi driver was attempting to scold me as if I had booked through them and they had The following morning, she continued to tell me that I was at fault!

Ideal place if you land really late or have to go to the airport really early. Price/quality just right!

We stayed here only one night right when we landed in Sri Lanka. It was super clean and came with breakfast! Great value for the price!! We spent 800 rupees on a tuk tuk from the airpot to the hostel and 200 on a tuk tuk from the hostel to the bus station in negumbo. This was in mid march 2015.
