    Such a lovely place to stay. Perfect location between Unawatuna beach and Jungle beach. The owner, Hannah is so helpful and friendly and has created a such a relaxing atmosphere. My only recommendation for the place would be to have air con in the bedroom as it gets very hot at night.

    Great stay! The house is located a short distance from the beach, but that's positive since the mornings in the jungle are much better! Very clean, awesome host and vibe. The food is also incredible. Definitely recommend!!

    This hostel is placed in a beautiful hidden location with a jungle type feel an easy walk to the main town and jungle beach. I struggled to leave this place as the hospitality of the owner/staff and the serenity will be missed.

    Beautiful place, staff, food and people. Booked for 2 nights and stayed for 5. A little getaway from tourist traffic but a close walk to Unawatuna beach and jungle beach. Wish I didn’t have to leave. If I ever come back to Sri Lanka I would 100% stay here again.

    House under Palmtrees was such an amazing place. The atmosphere there is really relaxing and though Unawatuna is quite touristic you can still calm down in this Hostel and find time, rest and space to find your inner peace. Hanna (the host) and the staff are really nice, caring and you can always ask them for their help. The rooms itself were minimalistic but still there was everything you need and you can‘t complain about the cleanliness.I wish I could stay there longer (maybe forever haha)🤪🥰

    Great hostel. Amazing location between Jungle Beach and Unawatuna. Breakfasts are to die for and the atmosphere is lovely. Hannah and staff are so friendly and helpful. Only downpoint was the downstairs/cheaper dorm was roasting hot at night, which makes it a bit hard to sleep and the internet drops out a bit but that's not a major issue.

    If you want a place suitable for Instagram this is it, what a modern hostel with beautiful interior. The owner is German and she as an eye for nature and whites. We can totally see that in her beautiful hostel! It’s a quiet, chill place where you can just breath and take it all in and talk to other travelers :)
