All beds in dorms have a locker for each guest for the security of luggage.

Please note that all air-conditioner are only from 9.00 pm till next morning 11.00 am in operation. Due to heavy power-drops in Arugam Bay we cannot operate the air-conditioners during the day.

The hostel also offers breakfast, short dishes, drinking water, cool drinks and fruit juices. Laundry service is provided at this property. The bathrooms are all modern and cleaned daily. In the outdoor garden are 5 hammocks, three with a canopy. To supply electricity during the many power cuts in Arugam Bay the Hostel operates a large generator. For your security a CCTV system with recorder is equipped around the hostel. In the Lobby is a refrigerator only for the food storage of our guests.
A game collection, deck of cards and dice boards are available.

The beach, restaurants, surfboard hire and surf schools, scooter hire, ATM and supermarkets are all to find in short walking distance. We provide Tuk-Tuk services to all surf points around. The highlight of your stay in Sri Lanka might be a wild life Tuk-Tuk safari, which you can book by Mr. Nihar for very moderate prices. The Hostel stuff will give you more information and can help you with your booking.

    The Long is where it's at. The location is absolutely ideal for ease of renting a board and walking to the nearest break. The rooms are nice at a 4 person cap and mostly ensuite bathrooms, AC is up to you! Harold and his wife are lovely and organized making everything run smoothly and efficiently. Great vibes and very social atmosphere without being a foul party hostel.

    Solid atmosphere amazing for solo traveller. Good security everyone is provided with huge locker. Toilets are spotless and very good. Wifi is sometimes a bit shady but still relatively good. Good value for money as it’s comfortable but for a bed in a 4 bed dorm you can get private room elsewhere in a hotel. Some may prefer this, others may not. Solid hostel.

    Very organized place! You have to book way in advance since this is always full and extending your stay is basically impossible. Packed with surfer dudes.

    Loved our stay here - very chill & staff were lovely! Big plus was that they have a back up generator in the hostel in case of a power outage, which not many places round here do! Would definitely recommend.
