    Loved my stay here. It’s a very relaxed atmosphere and most people in the dorm are keen to go surfing or explore around town. The restaurant cranks our delicious Italian food, bit expensive on a backpacker budget, but delicious none the less! The beach is just a short walk. The staff is a top notch group!

    Cant recommend this place enough!!! 10/10! One of the coolest hostels I have stayed in - intended to stay for 2 days and stayed for 2 weeks. The owners have created an amazing vibe that attracts the friendliest people. In addition, you are located

    Absolutely brilliant location that is very relaxed, social and a walking distance away from at least 2 great surf spots. There are also many more surf spots that are a short Tuk Tuk ride away from the hostel. The staff are also excellent, Kroot and Romina are super friendly and are always approachable if there is anything you need. There are also “proper” Italian pizzas there that are delicious if you feel like it. Originally, I was going to stay for 4 days, but I stayed for almost a month 🙂

    The owners Kroot and Romina are lovely and gave us great advice on places to party with the local community. Late April seems to be low season so the place was very quiet but filled with good vibes. Close to some good waves. /!\ They don’t have a bar so you need to bring your own booze and there are no liquor shops in Midigama /!\ we got some arak in weligama so it was ok

    Amazing hostel a bit off the main road which makes it nice and quiet. Big beds, a big green garden and an amazing vibe made me stay there for 3 weeks. The 2 girls who own it are just lovely. I had an amazing time! And for those who don't stay there, you should at least pass by to have a pizza ;)

    Great location, lovely staff. Can find other hostels not so far away for cheaper price including AC, breakfast and hot water so not the best value. Was here one night and saw two instances of overbooking/confusion with beds, one girl shared her bed with a stranger as they arrived late at night and hostel didn't have his reserved bed. Seems to be more focus on the restaurant but a good social atmosphere here and double beds in dorm are cool. Really clean bathroom too.

    A very cool hostel only issue is I am not a surfer and everyone else who stays there is. So please take my review with this in mind. If you are in to suffering then look no further amazing place however if not might want to look at a more general hostal.

    More focused on the restaraunt than the hostel side, so the place lacks that traveller vibe / doesn't really have an atmosphere. No kitchen . Met a good bunch of people though and the triple sized beds were a nice touch.

    Good location, nice garden, supergood pizza, large dorm beds, bathroom is cleaned every day. But the hostel is one big mess, there's stuff everywhere (left overs from guests, trash,...). The 'yoga hall' was half full with things so no good atmosphere. Would not stay again.
