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.

    We loved our stay at Roy’s Hostel. The rooms were some of the best that we have stayed in, lockers and power points next to the bed, and really clean. Roy and the staff were so helpful in planning activities and the family dinners were great. Would definitely recommend!

    10/10 for this hostel - we unfortunately only stayed one night but even in one night we felt like we were immediately part of a little family. We checked in after a long day of travelling and had the most amazing home cooked buffet dinner that night with everyone in the hostel and sat around a bonfire. In the morning a hike was organised to watch sunrise over Sigirya and Roy and his team went out of their way to ensure we had a great experience. Couldn’t recommend the place more.

    We had 1 night booked at Roy’s and could have easily gone another! From the minute we got there Roy & the staff were so accommodating & made us feel right at home. The location quite secluded, however this in no way means you’re limited with things to do! They have a slack line set-up out front, games, hammocks & offered to take us to a nearby local lake free of charge (which was unreal!). Plus a free cooking class with Roy’s wife (best food!!). Great dorms, huge beds. 12/10 would recommend :)

    Roy was honestly the most amazing host I’ve ever had. In the space of 24 hours, he; - Took me on a beautiful sunset walk - Organised for me to hike Pidurangala for sunrise - Taught me a local Sri Lankan game - Helped me plan my entire Sri Lanka itinerary - Helped me drive my tuk tuk down the dodgy driveway The place itself is amazing. Clean, nice comfy beds, good AC, good food, beautiful location with peacocks strolling around. Perfect place to stay to check out Sigiriya, thanks again Roy!
