    Our stay at Hostel First may have us breaking our rule of never visiting the same place twice! In three short days Manju and the team became family and we felt like we had been there a year. The atmosphere is amazing and has the best coffee I've had in Sri Lanka, just remember to ask for the percolator! Vegan breakfast available too now!

    Wow! This is the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in! The staff was amazing, the location was excellent, and the vibe of the place was just perfect :) I only meant to stay in Mirissa for 2 nights, but ended up staying a full week. I was honestly really sad to be leaving such a solid group of people and place, but the Maldives were calling me! Do yourself a favor, hang out with this crew, and check out some of the beach parties just 2 minutes from the hostel 💜

    Nice chilled place in a good location to the bus stop and beach. Air con was amazing. Drinking water available for free. Comfy beds with mosquito nets. Lockers in room but needed a smaller padlock so couldn't fit mine! Would recommend this place

    Lovely hostel and amazing staff. Really near the beach, bars and restaurants so perfect location - closer than most other hostels in Mirissa. I had a free yoga lesson in the morning which was dreamy, and breakfast is included which was really good. Less of a party hostel but still good atmosphere. Wish I could have stayed longer!

    This hostel is perfect if you’re looking for a quieter but still social place to stay. I stayed in a spacious female dorm with fans and no AC. The bed was comfy and there is a big locker assigned to each bed. The shared bathrooms are fine, shower pressure was decent. There is a nice garden area and indoor chill area. Staff were friendly, and breakfast was good. I really enjoyed my stay here :)

    Solid hostel in the perfect location with great friendly staff that will go out of their way to help you during your stay. An awesome chilled but social atmosphere, just what you want when chilling at the beach - which is a 2 min walk from the hostel. They also cook some incredible tasty traditional Sri Lankan food here too. Ended up extending here because I enjoyed my time so much!

    Amazing place, amazing staff. Ramesh especially went out of his way to help us out when we had a last minute change of plans and had to leave in a hurry! Couldn’t praise the staff enough for the warm and welcoming atmosphere they created for everyone.

    Very nice modern hostel, where the staff are the best part! Nuwan and his team all work very hard to keep the place tidy and make sure all the guests are well looked after. A special mention for the chefs too, who cook a very nice breakfast!

    Manju couldn’t have done more for us! So lovely and caring. The atmosphere was incredible, everyone staying there was so easy going and excited to meet new people, chatting away to anyone and everyone. Met some wonderful people! AC wasn’t working but we had a fan in the room, was still quite hot but definitely not a deal breaker. On our first night there were quite a few bugs. Honestly would stay there again for the atmosphere alone! Thanks Manju

    The hostel is well located which is the only good thing I can say about it. The rooms were not clean, with lots of spider webs and paint peeling off, the breakfast non-existent (toast and jam) and there was no vibe to speak off. Yes, they have a cute little dog, but as it chew apart one of my shoes and took a s*it on the yoga instructors mat during the class, I am not sure that’s a good thing. The staff seemed to live on the property and uses the common areas as their living room. Stay elsewhere
