    The hostel is located just 5 minutes walk from the beach and has a chilling area, bar and dining area. The only note I might have is the lack of A/C in most rooms. Anyways, great value for money and cool vibe

    The stuffs are super nice. I also met a lot of cool people here to travel together. The facility and deco are not what i expected. Theres only one thing i would complaint this hostel is that theres no outlet near each bunk. Theres only one outlet for the whole room, it makes charging not very convenient. Overall experience is very good.

    Great kitchen and decent dorms with big lockers. Nice social spaces and decor but when were there it was a bit quiet. Imagine it would be good if busy. Only one plug socket in the dorm of 6.

    + nice staff, great location, good aircon, delicious food, kitchen to use, free breakfast (toast+fruit+tea), nice outside common area, overall good! - bad lighting everywhere, especially in the inside common areas resulting in people not really wanting to hang out there, which is a shame + the door & window to the bathroom (2 showers 2 WC) are always open which means you can pretty much hear everything that happens in the toilets when you’re in parts of the kitchen/shower/common room/outside :)

    Lovely friendly and helpful staff with a great location and tidy rooms. Could do with a couple of extra pots for those who want to cook their own food though. Overall thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would defiantly come back! Thank you!

    Very friendly and helpful staff. AC in rooms and daily activities if wanted. Can organise trips if wanted. Downsides are very few plug sockets, unable to lock room (although lockable lockers available if you have padlock), atmosphere was a little lacking Overall a pleasant stay in Mirissa!

    Unfortunately, during my three nights at the hostel, there was almost no other guests. So no joint activities possible, which is not the hostel's fault, I guess it could be better at different days. But apart from that, I also didnt't enjoy the common areas in the evening as it was quite dark and not really cozy. Wifi was a bad connection, not possible to google anything. You cannot open the windows in the dorms and there is a bad smell.

    Cute hostel, great staff and location. Lots of mosquitoes compared to my other stay in Mirissa. I read in a previous comment the private room had AC...not sure if they all do but our private room had a fan. The staff are very friendly. Private room is huge !

    The place could use a really good scrub down. The rooms and common areas were hardly cleaned. They provide big lockers inside each dorm, but the doors to each room did not have a key or lock. There are mosquitoes everywhere, but they do provide nets for this. The best part of this hostel is the location and staff. It's located right next to a supermarket, close to many restaurants, and less than 10 min walk to the beach. There's also free yoga in the mornings and evenings, and basic breakfast.

    The hostel wasn’t the great. There were so many rules and guidelines that you had to do. Wasn’t the cleanest hostel and the showers were pretty bad. The WiFi was alright but you would have to get vouchers. Overall it wasn’t the best
