    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 really enjoyed the family atmosphere of this backpackers hostel were one will find everything to share good moments with other guests : plenty of game, a Yoga Shala , a fire space, good cooking and all the facilities to move around. The hostel is located in a lovely place at the border of jungle and rice fields which offer wonderful landscapes for sunset and many sites to discover. Special thank to Craig for the wild hike we shared on a lonely rock nearby ! Highly recommended !

    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.

    Had the best time in jungle vista! This place is so authentic and really makes staying in the jungle an amazing experience! It is a very socialable hostel and goes above and beyond to facilitate any trips you want to do from there! The staff were very friends and very accommodating to any needs and the food was sensational! Will definitely go back if I’m back in Sri Lanka!!

    Had a really nice time at this hostel that has some great traveller vines with people from all over the world (even in down season). The puppies were adorable, the food was good even if a little repetitive and only catering for vegetarians. The staff are happy to organise tours and activities for you so you can be as busy or as chilled as you like and the nightly bonfire with roasted marshmellows is a treat. Everything here other than the bed does come at an extra though

    Stayed in the outdoor dorm, not as bad as some reviews say. There are a lot of mosquitos in the common area but inside your bed’s net you’re ok. Free breakfast but the portions are a bit small. Lunch and dinner (for a small fee) family style which is nice. Disappointing that they don’t offer water refills and make guests buy endless plastic bottles. It’s a business but it shouldn’t be at the environments cost. Otherwise, the beers and the journeys to the rocks are way overpriced. Sort it out

    The staff were really nice! The atmosphere could have been enjoyable, but you’re swarmed with mosquitos with no coils, candles or any repellent aside from staying in bed under your net. Everything extra comes with a charge and it’s quite expensive. Breakfast is bleak- 3 baby size pieces of fruit and half toasted white bread. Only one small cup of tea, coffee costs extra. Too far from Sigiriya for convenience and the ride they offer is more expensive than a local tuk tuk (?!). Stay in Sigiriya.

    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!
