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. 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

    Awesome hostel. The location is directly opposite the beach. It was perfect for me being an intermediate. Beds were comfortable, great yoga every day (and cheap) and a great rooftop and chilling space. It was not so busy at the moment, however that made it pretty special, with the staff always going out of there way. Book at least 2 nights here. Epic

    My stay at hangtime was really good! The facilities are nice and added to that the roof top restaurant makes it even better. Such a nice atmosphere and delicious food. This place is a must when coming to Weligama.

    Perfect location for surfing. Restaurant on the top floor does really good food! Also have to mention how well they looked after us all, we were staying there on the day of all the bombings in colombo. we had a curfew of 6pm but they made sure we all had something to eat and were well looked after.

    Awesome stay and perfect location because it’s right across from the beach. The food is amazing, and it’s nice to wake early for a rooftop coffee to check the waves. The only thing I wished they had was a communal toilet on the ground floor or in the hallway outside the dorms. Six people to one toilet is hard when everyone is on the same shower or wake up schedule! Not a big deal though, definitely recommend and would stay again!

    We stayed in one of the private rooms - which I cannot recommend enough. You get to sleep in a boat for starters, but the bathroom is great, and you get your own veranda with hammock etc., it was very relaxing. Location of the hostel is great, right across the road from the beach. The rooftop cafe is also very good, we enjoyed the food a lot and ate there numerous times (especially the breakfast!). We paid a little extra for air con (1000 rps per day), as it got quite warm in the mornings.

    Very Good

    Really loved the rooftop restaurant and lounge area, but the mosquito net on the bed was uncomfortably sized, the bathroom was usual dirty, and it was so dang hot. Most of all, I couldn’t access the WiFi from the room and it didn’t always work from the 3rd and 4th floors in the morning which is so frustrating during the planning process.

    Didn't live up to the hype! The biggest downer is the atmosphere; there isn't a common room for folks staying at the hostel to hang out, and the hostel doesn't put together or encourage activities with your fellow hostel-stayers. I prefer hostels that focus on the social vibes!
