Property Description

If you wish to surf, do some yoga, eat great food, drink good coffee or just generally chill, Hangtime Hostel is the place for you.

The ground floor double rooms have a separate balcony, private bathroom with hot water and the option of A/C for 1000rs/night. You will always feel like you are in Sri Lanka, as the beds are made from ex Sri Lankan fishing boats. Don't worry, they have been cleaned. If the boats aren't what you fancy we also have one room that is a standard double room.

The 1st floor dorm rooms are separated into a 4 bed female dorm and 6 bed mixed dorms. The combination of natural materials, old fishing rope and locally painted art on the walls which all overlook the beautiful surf beach scattered with boats give constant reminders of where you are. All dorms have private bathrooms with hot water.

The rooftop cafe/restaurant is the place to get a great barista coffee in the morning, a fresh juice or salad for lunch and sushi or pizza for dinner. The 360 degree views of the beach and jungle show the beauty of this amazing country. View House Rules

    Hangtime Hostel is the best place to stay and be in Weligama! It's right in front of the beach with the best waves for beginner surfers. You can view the swell from the amazing Hangtime restaurant and rooftop bar. The restaurants had incredible food, my favorite - the mexican fries! Super comfortable beds, I had my own plugs where I could charge all my devices. Nice chills on the balcony after long days of surfing and sightseeing. Fun events almost every night, a great place to meet new people!

    People travel from all over the south just to enjoy the food and ambiance at hangtime. The food is delicious (and well priced), the staff is extremely friendly, and the view from the restaurant is breathtaking. Make sure to catch the sunsets from the rooftop. The rooms are exceptionally clean and feel very safe. Location is prime- you’re right across the street from one of the best beginner surf spots. Without a doubt my favorite hostel in Sri Lanka.

    Place is in a great location right next to the beach with an in house kitchen with many options. Love the early bfast option and the daily yoga session though the busy street flood out the teachers voice. The beds are beyond huge and very comfy. The mosquitoe net, personal light and plug was a huge plus. Washroom are huge in the non ac mixed dorm. The dorm balcony and yoga studio floor was a wonderful place to chill. Wish there was curtains in the dorm to blind out the bright morning sun.

    Great Atmosphere, very social. Yoga wasn't great, the shala is right above a noisy road so you can't actually hear the teacher at all.

    Hangtime hostel really shines on pictures, however reality is a bit different. It has perfect location, friendly staff, is safe and has plenty of cool things like yoga classes, hammocks, good wifi, ping pong table and really nice rooftop cafe and bar. But rooms are a bit old and not that well maintaIned. We had a boat room. So it has very few sockets, boat itself should be repainted. If you use the room only to sleep probably it’s fine. But if you want to work it is not comfortable.

    Hangtime isn’t the same it was the first time I went. Bedrooms very outdated, look very old & suprised in covid the beds weren’t redone or something - feels like the staff & roof bar are very detached from the rooms. Previously a great atmosphere - everyone hanging on the balcony together, chilling. This time everyone was very seperated, the staff we didn’t really see them. Just not the same :(. Prices on the rooftop were crazy for average western food
