    Feels like home at Spindrift. Minimal aesthetic interior and a wonderful team running the place. If you are lucky, you will get a bed, usually, it's always full. Will definitely come back.

    Brilliant hostel, best in Weligama as I tried 2 of the main 3. Josh and Charlotte are great, easy access to the beach and an activity planned every night. Great atmosphere - so easy to meet everyone staying and a good fried egg for breakfast.

    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!
