    The hostel is very nice and the people are helpful. Great yard and big terrace upstairs. We had a private room and it was decent. A ceiling fan would do wonders. The humidity is fierce! Internet was spotty and the electricity failed a few times. Jungle Beach is so dirty it’s not worth the 20 mins walk. Don’t do the whale trip, there’s never any whales. We found Unawatuna too crowded but if you’re into that sort of thing, it’s ok. There’s restaurants nearby and bars and places to party.

    Would only stay here again if they invested in air conditioning - the rooms are far too hot!! It was actually unbearable at time, 3 old fans for a big room. Also, mosquito nets over the window have huge holes in them and I got bitten to pieces during my 2 nights! I actually booked a 3 bed female dorm with en suite. When I arrived I was shown a 6 bed female dorm and told it was changed 6 months ago - this should be updated on the listing as I could have got a room somewhere else for cheaper!

    Good location, close to the beach, better wifi tan other places. Helpfull staff. Bad things: Dirty bathroom, only 4 small lockers for 6 beds, no towels, no light in the room, only 2 small lights so you hardly can see in the night.Too hot even with 2 fans.They change the room we booked, we rented a room for 3 girls and we got there and it wasn’t available and they said we can stay but there’s a guy also staying in that room.. the room had the key in the door and everyone could go in,no Security

    On arrival we were disappointed by the greeting we received from the staff who remained lying on a mattress during check in. The atmosphere was not welcoming from the start. We had booked a private room for 3 with bathroom, however were put in a 6 person dorm without any prior warning. The dorm was very basic with only one mosquito net provided. The bathroom door did not lock and window was covered by a pinned up rug. We were disappointed and uncomfortable and decided to not stay the night.

    Confused why this hostel has such good reviews. Good location but that’s all. We booked a 3 bed female dorm and stayed in a 6 bed - apparently wrong on hostel world but why hasn’t this been changed? Asked for a key for locker but this never materialised. No mosquito net in the bathroom and the door didn’t close from outside, so the net covering the window in the room (which also had holes in) was pointless and got bitten alive. So so hot! No AC. fans did nothing! Little to no plugs that worked.
