Property Description


A big warm welcome everyone to Roy's! The people who love to stay here, come for some fantastic nature experiences, the breathtaking views from both Lion Rock and Pidurangala Rock and to see the beautiful lake via a rice field. If You looking for city comfort ( no shopes around , Average wifi ) .
We have two four bed dorms with A/C that are small double beds, if you would like to share with someone you can also split the cost and just drop me a message the dorms also include hot showers all for a reasonable price but with the beautiful country views. The hostel is very much at the heart of nature; Monkeys, Birds and Bugs are everywhere in the area even not close by city. So Please don't be here for to complain for the location.
so you have been warned :D

Every night, we offer delicious food cooked by local people in a great atmosphere where you get to know Roy and your fellow travellers!
Breakfast and lunch are both available here, where we have both Western and native dishes.

Roy's Villa is perfect place for excursions to Dambulla, Pidurangala, Lion Rock & the ancient ruins city of Polonnaruwa, where we will be more than happy to help with any travel arrangements to any of these places.

There is also a chance to have a fun experience with the local farmers and spend time in their rice fields and huts, or swim in the local natural lake, with even a chance of sighting some elephants! We look forward to welcoming you to the hostel where we hope you feel like you're at home.

    Fantastic hostel all round. Dorms are very clean, small double beds each with lockable storage. 3 course breakfast each day and delicious buffet dinners. Roy is a great host who encourages a lovely atmosphere in the hostel with a family feel to meals, group campfires, organising group trips from the hostel to sunset views & sunrise walks. He was incredibly supportive during the coronavirus outbreak giving us sound advice for onward travels and organising last minute transport when needed!

    I think other reviews speak for themselves. We absolutely loved our time at Roy's, the first thing that gets you is the sense of community, everyone comes together, including staff and travellers, and it makes for a brilliant time. The food here is amazing, it really gives a sense of being a family. You may have just met people here, but it feels like you've known them for years. The rooms were clean, and the beds were comfy. The sunrise hike to the Small Rock is fantastic. Thank you Roy!

    Your only regret will be not booking longer. Awesome atmosphere created by Roy makes it so easy to meet like minded travellers. The rooms are fully equipped and comfortable and although the hostel is a little away from the town there is so much opportunity for activities you won’t want to leave anyway. Cooking classes, bonfires and good times all included.

    The BEST hostel I've ever stayed at. Highly recommend staying here to anyone wanting to go to Sigiriya or the cultural triangle. The staff were incredible; they gave us great advice for our trip, took us on hikes and to natural lakes for swimming & organised safari for us in a less touristy location. The hostel is right next to beautiful rice paddies, it's incredibly social and has amazing food cooked by the owners wife! I met a great group of people here that I travelled with for a week after!

    It’s everything every other reviewer says. Far better than you could imagine. Two evenings, 1 by the open fire, the other playing a the game of Werewolf — great fun. The accomodation is top notch with big beds, great air-con & secure locker. Roy will organise anything to anywhere. Everything is sorted that you ask for. Beer and cheese sandwiches available - an alternate to his special local offer. Including cricket on TV. It’s well away from everywhere so sanguine but with Tuts on hand.

    Hostel was good overall. Dinner was nice, but expensive for Sri Lanka, but the hostels location didn't give you many alternatives. Room design was lovely, good air con, clean large beds. Host was very helpful and brought the guests together, was also taken on a free trip to the lake which was a good time. My stay was not as relaxing as I had hoped, building work was going on at the hostel and the owners child was very excited, shouting and trying to get us to play with him
