    The Spindrift must be the best and friendliest hostel we have ever stayed in. The rooms are clean and bright with super comfy beds and fabulous showers. Lounge areas are great for chilling out and making new friends. Close to the beach, shops and great places to eat. What more could you want?

    Couldn’t recommend this hostel high enough. Josh and Charlotte are amazing and the volunteers they had were great. Having activities every night to bring all the people in the hostel together and build friendships with some amazing people. Made my experience unforgettable. In such a great location close to the beach and all the great places to eat in Weligama. If your staying here make sure you go to the local roti shop called Zam Zams and get the egg string hoppers Kottu. Lots of love 😘

    We had an incredible time at Spindrift! The vibe there was amazing. The daily activities made our time here, they were so much fun and an easy way to meet other guests. The location is perfect with heaps of awesome restaurants and cafes close by and just a short walk to the surf. This place was easily the best part of our Sri Lanka holiday. Thanks so much Josh and Charlotte for such an awesome stay, we will definitely be back!

    Top Marks. We had been waiting to stay here for some time now and ended up staying for ten nights instead of our original six. It's close to perfect ... Best social spaces we have ever had. Easy for everyone to get together and join in activities! Super comfortable and clean but I would recommend booking the A/C rooms if you are torn! The Wifi is tragic but iv'e heard its the same all over the country so put your phone down & join in the fun. They have Bananagram so it's a no brainer to me
