    Craig, the manager and owner were super friendly and helpful. they also can serve you some great local dish for lunch and dinner, which were really tasty :p most of the night they do campfire in the behind of the hostel. the hostel is bit far away from the town but definitely amazing place to look the star, enjoy the fire. they also can organize transportation for Lion's Rock and other places that you must have a look.

    Amazing vibes. Run by a lovely family and some genuinely awesome hosts. Great place to socialize and you'll probably stay "one more night" a few times. Great food options and they will help you organize everything you could possibly want to do in the area. Go to this hostel if you're in the area. Only complaint is no water filter. Thanks Mama and Craig for the hospitality

    Jungle Vista exceeded my expectations. Mama was a wonderful host and looked after everybody. Great tours were offered and was nice to also have the option of a massage. The vibe was fantastic here and was great to sit as a group and have dinner and have a drink. Wish I could’ve stayed for longer.

    I loved staying here!! Mama was adorable and made everyone who stayed here feel like part of her family. I did two tours with the hostel which were really fun, they were actually a highlight of my time in Sri Lanka. There’s no rush with the tours, they both started about 30-60 minutes after they should have. Wasn’t really a problem though, the tour was worth the wait. Only thing I could say that could be improved is the options for food at the hostel.

    The 17 person dorm has 2 bathrooms and those weren’t cleaned throughout the stay. The toilets were nasty, wet.. sometimes smelly. Basically no security on a few lockers left. The location is alright because it’s between Sigiriya and Dambulla, that way you can get there easy with the bus but other than that there’s nothing to do in the town. The hostel provided breakfast, lunch and dinner served at a certain time. But every time it was super late and everyone was hungry. The food was good though
