    I had an amazing time in this hostel! The place itself is cozy and homie, with clean rooms, beautiful garden and nice common area to chill :) Close to the very nice beach, where you can have long beach walks and amazing sunsets. And staff are very friendly and helpful! I would totally recommend this place to anyone!

    Perfect location - in the middle of nice village, where you can feel real Sri Lanka life and community. Close to the uncrowded beach where you can surf. Chill, peaceful hostel with a home vibes. Amazing place to stay longer and enjoy the South of Sri Lanka. Super friendly hosts. Clean and comfortable space.

    The host, Dulli is very kind and knowledgable about the area. The hostel is situated in a quiet neighbourhood but everything is within walking distance (i.e 2km from city centre/ Mirissa Harbour and a nice beach which is only 10 mins walk away).

    This is such a great hostel!!! Definitely our favourite in Sri Lanka. The owner is lovely, we felt so welcomed. The house is clean, pretty and there was a wonderful breeze in our room from the big windows. Bicycles to rent, a kitchen and a nice communal space upstairs. A short tuk tuk ride from the main street of Mirissa - we paid 200 rupees. I can't recommend this place enough and we would love to come back another time. Secret beach is also nearby this hostel - a hidden beauty.

    Had a great few nights stay here. The host, Marta is friendly and will help you with anything. She has lots of local contacts which is helpful when arranging things like surf lessons and scooter rental. The house is nice and big, super clean, the room was comfy and had a fan. The location is nice but a little out of town. The only limitations for me were that I found it pretty isolating as a solo traveller but I know if there were more ppl staying to hang out with it would have been ideal.

    Lovely little hostel. Quite quiet and out of the way, but very friendly and welcoming. A great place to stay for a quiet night before whale watching coz doing that on a hangover sucks, and a good place to relax and sleep off the sea sickness tablets after! Close enough to enjoy mirissa without being in the very busy centre.

    We got a private room for new years. Comfy bed with a good bathroom. No hot water. Great breakfast. Not close to the town so you need to take a tuk tuk or bus in. Good local beach. Nice spot to chill.
