Property Description


A big warm welcome everyone to Roy's! The First thing about the hostel is which is very much at the heart of nature; Monkeys, Birds and Bugs are everywhere in the area even not close by city. Make sure to read our hostel discription before You book the place. Because i don't want to make any one unhappy about our location. So you have been warned :) 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. Again If You looking for city comfort ( no shopes around , Average wifi ) . Please don't be here to complain about the location & we don't need anyone to score 8/10.

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.

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

Cheers !!

    It will be hard to beat this hostel which actually was an INCREDIBLE HOTEL! Roy runs the hostel and has his family helping with everything, they are all wonderful people, very kind and friendly! They did EVERYTHING for us! A perfect village, rooms with huge beds and everything impeccable, hotel breakfast, delicious meals, an indescribable vibe, they took us everywhere with the greatest patience in the world! I felt at home with Roy's family! If you go to Sigiriya, you already know where to stay!

    Roy goes above and beyond to make sure everyone makes the most of the area and helps to get you to and from all activities. The only place you should stay in Sigiriya! Cleanest, most spacious dorms in Sri Lanka.

    Loved my stay here at Roy's villa hostel. As a solo female traveller I was keen to stay somewhere that was social and I could meet people in their 20s-40s keen to explore the area. Roy's villa hostel exceeded my expectations in a beautiful tropical location, comfortable rooms and a gorgeous family. Roy makes sure you don't even have to think about tuk tuks/taxis and organises everything for the group's keen to explore local attractions. Thank you for an amazing stay ❤️

    Roy is super kind and an extrem good host. The atmosphere is perfect and the pool of the hotel next to Roy‘s is lovely. Food and activities are a bit more expensive than others. We would absolutely recommend Roys hostel!!

    Amazing place to stay, met loads of friendly people and Roy is the best hostel owner you could hope for. He put on a free cooking class for us, the food everyday was fantastic! He helped us organise everything we wanted to do and even organised a trip to the knuckles mountain which was incredible- would definitely recommend doing this! It was a little on the pricier side but honestly worth every penny. A must go stop for anyone looking to see the Sigiriya area ☺️
