    I was the only guest BUT still ended up staying for four days! The staff are great and the owner is hilarious. If heading here in high season I’d book early to avoid disappointment 😉

    I never intended to even be in Weligama, but after hearing about Rockstel I decided to check it out. I had an absolutely amazing experience there, met some wonderful people and ended up staying for more than 2 and half weeks. Lot of travellers end up returning to it as its a 'home away from home'. Raz, Laki and all the staff are just awesome as well!! Totally recommend.

    Hostel is in a great location in Weligama, very near the beach and near some great restaurants. Staff who run it are so nice and helpful, and there is a lovely atmosphere in the hostel overall. Was only meant to stay for 2 nights and ended up staying for 2 weeks! Would really recommend to anyone, solo traveler (like myself) or those in a group

    Whilst Rockstel is slightly more expensive than other hostels in the area, it is definitely worth it! Really easy to meet other travellers, 5 minute walk from the beach and super comfy beds. Never had a problem with uncleanliness and plenty of evening activities to meet other people. Best hostel in Weligama!

    Really friendly hostel, and when i went there was a great group of people there. There are quite a few places to hang out as well (roof, garden, balcony). Staff are great, and add to the atmosphere. The bathrooms are slightly less good (blocked loos and slight issues with the showers when I was there). Kitchen had all the equipment you need, and the hostel is close to restaurants and the main supermarket in weligama.
