    We stayed in the private room, a converted shipping container. Very clean, strong AC, comfortable bed. Chill vibes; hammocks and bean bags everywhere. Excellent Sri Lankan breakfast. The hosts were very kind and helpful. Location is good, on the quiet side of town. A short walk to get to the main drag. Recommend a stay!

    Great emplacement, some people will say it's little bit far from the main point, but so calm and not noisy. Beach at 2min. Small hostel so feel like a little family. People that come here for only 2-3 nights always want to stay longer. I stay 8 nights and I was not ready to leave. Lyn and the local lady who is helping her are very kind, always ready to help. Good breakfast, even some local food or some pancakes some days. If I go back to Arugam Bay I will definitely book again at Little Lagoon!

    We stayed here a week at the beginning of season and really enjoyed ourselves. Everyone working at the hostel is approachable, breakfasts were always tasty. Our room was cleaned regularly and was spotless. Dont have anything bad to say about our time here - I hope the season picks up for them! Would definitely recommend

    The owner is lovely and the dogs are very cute. Nice hangout area and the dormroom was very nice. Good breakfast. Very social hostel, make sure you book enough nights as it's always fully booked. Location is a bit on the end of the mainstreet but that makes it more quiet which is nice. Very close to the beach!

    Lovely stay. Hosts very helpful. Impeccably clean. Free filtered drinking water was excellent, as we're the free breakfasts. Quiet (as was everywhere) but did mean we had our own private room!

    Clean and nice. Very small so your experience will greatly depend on the bunch of people staying at the time.

    Good atmosphere, helpful staff, great location. Nicely designed, good for relaxing. There were a lot of technical malfunctions while we were there though - both toilets broke, the AC remote died, they ran out of water twice (no running water in shower or sink), the power went out. I’m sure it’s fine most of the time though. Cute puppy though.
