    Steffi’s Mandala is honestly the best hostel I have ever stayed at! Right on the beach, food is incredible, staff are very friendly and helpful, as well as the beds being very comfy and clean. There is always a good vibe at the Mandala. Couldn’t recommend it enough, especially during times like these now!

    Amazing venue, location, vibe, staff and facilities. Had a private room with ensuite bathroom and aircon, which was perfect. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a chilled out vibe, on the beach.

    This was my first stop on the trip and I loved staying here! The staff are so friendly and it's such a chilled out spot. There are beach loungers, swings, picnic tables and little areas to lounge around and chill. The menu items were delicious! The green veggie burger was the best I've ever had! It's close to a ton of bars and restaurants, just getting into the quieter bit. If you want a place to really relax and enjoy Hikkaduwa I would definitely recommend staying here!

    The place was so chill and relaxed, great atmosphere. Amazing location right on the beach. Lots of bars, restaurants, shops nearby. Good veggie/vegan food available at the bar. Quite a small site, wasn't concerned about security. Got bitten during the night but that can't be helped! Would recommend.

    Good value for money. We stayed in a a private room and the air con was very good. The location couldn’t be any better, it’s right on the beach and right next to a surfboard rental! Lots of places to eat and chill close by. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was really chilled also.

    Beautiful spot! I love the beachfront hang out spaces. Laid back environment, not a party hostel which was perfect for me. Nice food at the cafe. Overall a great experience!

    The hostel is nice and clean and there are a lot of cozy places to relax. During the night it can be very loud cause of the main road which is literally right next to the house. They offer yummy food and free (and clean) tab water.

    Plenty of backpackers but place half closed. No air con. One cold shower and toilet are outisde. Young lad who ran the place was arrogant, cocky, serly and unhelpful. There’s no extra support for backpackers. No trips or advice. Atmosphere dead. Better to stay 500m further north up the beach where there’s more going on.
