Property Description

The Doctor's House is situated on the South Coast of Sri Lanka, in a small coastal village called Madiha. We have 1 x 6 bed dorm, 3 x 4 bed dorms (all mixed) and 2 x private twin share bungalows.

It is situated on the south coast of Sri Lanka, in the beautiful Madiha. We are a bar/restaurant/hostel with delicious wood-fired pizza's, great espresso coffee and very friendly staff!

The pristine coastline of Madiha is perfect for swimming and the area boasts some of the best surf on the whole coast. We have 4 mixed dorm rooms (3 x 4 bed dorms and 1 x 6 bed dorm), with shared outdoor bathroom and shower facilities. The hostel accomodation is truly spectacular and there has been a huge focus on the use of natural materials and retaining the traditional style of the 200 year old building, whist adding a touch of contemporary finishes and creature comforts.

We have 2 private bungalows available, which are fitted with a very comfortable queen sized bed, mosquito net and a fan. The bungalows also have a a private balcony, some storage space and a glamorous attached outdoor bathroom. The buildings have been finished in a conformable, rustic style and there is a focus on the use of natural materials, which fits in well with the existing old buildings and the surrounding landscape. These beautifully finished bungalows have nice decor and are perfect for couples or solo travellers who want a bit more privacy and comfort.

The feature piece is certainly The Doctor's House, which is a 200 year old colonial building which has served as an Aryuvedic hospital since it was built. It has been handed down through 5 generations of Aryuvedic doctors, and has been lucky enough to fall into the hands of two young Australians.

This Dutch colonial style building is truly one of a kind. One look at it, leaves you speechless, in saying that, its spooky, yet mysterious look makes you wonder how many stories it would have to tell. This building was one of very few which survived the 2004 tsunami. View House Rules

    Easily one of the best hostels I’ve stayed! It’s right on the beach and has a great atmosphere. The staff are so lovely and helpful. I loved the outdoor showers and the rustic dorms. The bar is pricey but it’s basically what you’d pay anywhere in Aus or NZ - one of the staff told me the owners pay a living wage which is why the prices are a little higher. I’m more than happy to pay more for an ethical and environmentally friendly hostel that supports the community. Thank you for an amazing stay!

    One of the most fun places I have stayed in Sri Lanka. The staff is always ready to help, smiley and happy. It is a few steps away from a lovely small beach where you get your morning dose of swimming and sometimes can spot a turtle or two. The food is always fresh and the pizza is to die for. One of my many other recommendations are all the cocktails but mostly the espresso martini! The artists who play on Sundays will definitively guarantee you a good time.

    We really enjoyed our stay here. We had one of the private rooms, and I can really recommend this. The outdoor bathroom was absolutely beautiful. There was no air con, however the fan was directly above the bed so we had no trouble sleeping. I will say, if you're a light sleeper perhaps consider taking ear plugs (I did) because it can be quite loud at night (though in a tropical country what do you expect?). The atmosphere was very relaxing, food great and location excellent!

    Plenty of great things about the place but for me it was the coffee, ice cream and good tunes.

    Seems like a hostel attached to the back of a bar that has really good music every Saturday (and markets every other week). No lockers but really nice outdoor showers and pretty good beds (with mosquito nets) - no a/c, only fans so that could be improved. The staff were really open and friendly.

    Stayed here one night not realising the big party was the next night. However it’s still a great place to stay. Close to the beach. Big parties here throughout the week and we came back for these from mirissa. Love music on Saturday was great. Good vibe when the parties are on but very quiet if not.

    We had a Mongoose scampering about our room and on top of the bunks (on the taught mosquito netting). The animal urinated onto my bed and pillow -- I moved just in time and turned on my flashlight to see it. We also woke up to its sh*t on our floor. Staff weren't surprised about this issue and knew they would have to put up some kind of netting to keep the animal from constantly returning. Obviously, this wasn't something they figured they should address with any sort of urgency.
