    One of the best hostels in Sri Lanka, waking up in the jungle every morning was an amazing experience. It’s great for solo travellers cause they have a board to sign up for activities every day like Lions Rock and elephant safaris! The volunteer Craig made me feel so at home and always had something fun to do like swimming in the lake and drinking games at night, amazing home cooked meals throughout the day and everyone sits and eats together so it feels like a little family!

    I would highly recommend staying at Jungle vista. I booked the large open air dorm which is on the top floor and has a roof but no walls. This works really well because it stays nice and cool during the night and you can watch the chipmunks and birds from bed in the morning 👌 The staff were friendly and helpful, and the hostel had a sociable and relaxed atmosphere: plenty of hammocks to hang about in and really good food. It is also in a beautiful location with plenty to explore nearby

    Jungle Vista was an amazing place to stay with a great, chilled and friendly atmosphere, lots of different activities to do or even just a place to chillout and relax. Location is great just outside the jungle and you do get the feeling of living in the jungle with the open dorm... Swimming at the local lake was something different and it had an amazing view... I would definitely recommend this place to everyone.

    I stayed there 2 nights and I really had a good time. They organize for you many tours to the key locations at a reasonable prize. The lunch and dinner was really good and huge portions!!! There is a shop very close by in case you need to buy some basics and the bus station is also across the street. I was able to take the bus from there to Kandy which was very handy. The facilities are exactly what I was looking for. It is a very unique open space, so you feel like being camping or so on.

    Great hostel! Really nice Atmosphere. A very relaxing hostel in the jungle. The staff is very friendly and the food they cooked was great! The Hostel is clean considering the fact that it’s in the Jungle. The Hostel offers great tours (Sigiriya, Safari, …). I really enjoyed my stay here and would definitely recommend staying here.

    Had such a great time at this hostel I originally booked for 2 nights but ended up extending because I enjoyed it so much. The food was always very nice and the portion sizes were pretty big, they had plenty of trips on offer making it very easy to do as much or as little as you want. The staff helped make it a very relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. The outside dorm room was amazing being able to fall asleep watching the fire flies around the room.

    Loved my time at this hostel - such a cool, chilled out environment. The large sleeping area is super fun and nice areas to relax in during the day. The family-type meals were definitely the highlight - such good, traditional food and huge portion sizes.

    Great hostel, has everything you need, chilled vibes while I was there. Stayed in the open air dorm, loved it Jayantha the owner was a legend helping me out looking after my surfboard while I can’t surf, he was really welcoming and a great guy. He has a good crew working alongside him, all happy helpful people! Thanks again will see you in the future I’m sure when I’m back!

    The first impression was good, but suddenly it was clear that the stuff could not handle all the guests. Dirty rooms with allot of flies and mosquitos. The internet was very slow and the main staff was very unfriendly and tried to add taxes to the booked price. No go!
