    This was probably my favorite hostel in Sri Lanka. Absolutely beautiful setting and design. Classy, clean, fresh and just all round a cool place to stay. Halfway between Unawatuna beach and jungle beach and nestled on top of the hill literally under palm trees. I would highly recommend a stay here. Hanna, the owner, has a really interesting story to tell about moving to Sri Lanka and opening the hostel and she is super friendly and welcoming. Only have positive things to say about this place

    Hanna is a wonderful host and the property is beautiful. No air con which is nice for actually acclimating to the heat for daytime. Breakfast, coffee, teas are all delicious and upscale. Situated in a rather secluded portion of the peninsula. Really nice stay.

    In simple words, this is the perfect hostel. What you see in the photos is what you get. A clean, stylish place in where you from booking 2 nights will end staying for a week or more. The food provided by the hostel was delicious and healthy (sometimes too pretty :P). I just have to say thanks to them, for making my stay in Unawatuna memorable.

    Hanna, the owner, was super friendly and accommodating, and she has been a life saver when I had a last minute change of plan. The hostel is decorated with taste and is perfect to chill out. I also recommend her yummy breakfasts!

    What a gem!! This place feels like an oasis in the jungle. The beds are comfy, softest sheets I’ve slept on in a while. The food is yummy. Great mellow atmosphere, easy to meet people around the communal table. Short walk to the main beach, even shorter to Jungle beach. The hostel manager is lovely! Would definitely come back here.

    Such a beautiful hostel! Clean, spacious and well designed. Wish I’d had time to stay longer. Hannah is super friendly and the place has a homely feel. Quiet area on an evening so perfect for a good nights sleep! Walking distance to jungle beach and Unawatuna. Would recommend and would LOVE to stay again! Good coffee& smoothies !

    Nice little hostel, beautifully decorated by the lovely owner Hanna. Location is a little far from the town but ok if you dont mind walking up the hill! Not a place to stay if you want to socialise and party but if you want a nice chill place to relax its perfect. Thank you!

    Beautiful, clean, chic hostel. I did find that there was a lack of atmosphere, it wasn't great as a solo traveller with regards to meeting other backpackers. I also found sometimes there was no staff at the hostel - this proved difficult when trying to get water to drink past 8/9 pm as it was locked inside and needed to be paid for etc etc.
