    I enjoyed it so much. I didn’t expect to enjoy my stay there that much. The bathrooms were very clean. And the owners bring a really chill and open vibe to the hostel. Also they have organized events you can join if you want to. Amazing stay. I already miss that place and the people there. That is the most fun i had in a looong time. Will got there again definitely. Thanks guys!

    The Spindrift is an epic place to stay and probably my favourite of all Sri Lanka. The place is spotlessly clean with great amenities but what really makes it is the vibe. There’s a lot of group activities organised and great tips on where to go/ eat so it’s great if you want an insight into the best spots!

    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?

    Only stayed one night, but the place was super clean. The hostel has activities every night which you can join if you want to. Breakfast is included and you can cook your eggs how you want (although there were none left when I was there). Really nice places to chill out around the place too.
