    What a beautiful place! I really loved living together familylike in a house, Charlotte and Josh are so lovely and the vibe just amazing! You have many chill out (or work) areas inside and outside. It’s super central, clean, and I absolutely liked the style/design.

    I cannot recommend this hostel enough!! After travelling for 4 years I can honestly say, it's the best hostel I have ever stayed in! For me it is my home away from home; the kind of place you find very difficult to leave and will always come back for more A fantastic combination of everything that you would want from a backpackers hostel - fab atmosphere, social activities, cleanliness, great common areas & well thought out spaces! The staff are a bunch of legends and always there to help!

    A really first-rate hostel – easily the best during my month in Sri Lanka. The atmosphere is the perfect mix of chill and fun (they have a volunteer whose job it is to organise events in town most evenings), the location is unbeatable, and the dorms are comfortable. Thanks Ru for all the events and the cheer, and thanks Josh and Charlotte for making it possible.

    Amazing hostel, one of the best I've stayed in! Everyone is so friendly and Ru the social rep is amazing at bringing people together every night for dinner, drinks or other activities. Sk easy to make friends and most guests are solo travelers. Def get room with AC as it gets very hot! Thanks Charlotte and Josh I had such a great time. See you soon!

    Fantastic hostel located on a small street near the beach in Weligama. Perfect for the beginner surfer like us. The owners and staff were great. Very friendly and kind. Their dog Reggie was a treat as well. The breakfast was simple but still very fresh. If you have high demands you can always purchase your own food and keep it in the common kitchen. The variation of people from different countries and the chill vibe made this a place we definitely would recommend.

    Great hostel with an awesome family vibe. Feel at home as soon as you arrive and the staff are all great. The social events every night are really good for solo travellers looking to meet new people and have fun. Super close to the beach so great for those beginner surfers. Wouldn't stay anywhere else if I was to come back to weligama. Came for 1 night, stayed for 7. Leon
