    We stayed at Sea Drift for 1 night when we first arrived in Sri Lanka. We didn't arrive until late at night and we received a lovely warm welcome and was shown straight to our room. Our room was clean and comfortable with a balcony overlooking the sea. Breakfast was very good including fruit, omelette, toast and tea. The owner of the hostel greeted us at breakfast and was very friendly and informative. He helped book us onward travel to our next destination and arranged it all for us. amazing!
