Really relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Fast WiFi throughout the hostel. Emma who runs the hostel is a traveler herself, very outgoing and friendly always ensuring her guests have a fun experience and she is very laid back. Always available to answer questions and often organizing event.The house keeper as well is very nice always has a smile on his face. Close to a grocery store and not far from the beach. Great place to stay when you first arrive in sri lanka

Very nice hostel, great garden to chill, lovely host who will also take you to a party or pub crawl. Open kitchen, easy to get to know other travelers. Only minus: quite far from the city center! About 40minuts and 800rp by tuktuk, or 1h by public bus. But therefore it's quiet! And the mattresses were quite uncomfortable..


Very nice place, friendly an helpful staff who knows what there is to see and do in the area and in all of Sri Lanka too.
