    I booked for 2 nights, but ended up staying for 2,5 weeks! It is a very social hostel with activities everyday, so it’s very easy to meet new people ;)

    Great Hostel with lots of different social/chill out areas. They have something arranged for each night so it’s perfect for solo travellers wanting to meet people! Worth staying in a room with AC as the rooms with just fans are still really hot! Overall a great and social hostel!!

    This place felt like home, peaceful and very nice crowd that stays here. My partner and I booked the private room with AC and it was exactly what we wanted. Will definitely stay here again.

    Good location, very close to the beach. Staff were very friendly and very helpful. If you’re looking to meet people probably not the best place.

    Very Good

    The staff is nice and helpful, as are the owners. The common space is nice and the location is good, close to restaurants and the beach. Many solo travellers. I slept on the upper half of the bunk bed and would have liked some sort of security against falling out of bed at night. A rod or a net perhaps. The boxes for storage under the bed makes an awful noice when pulled out, waking me up everytime. And lastly, it would be nice with mosquito nets or at least a hook to set up your own.

    An overall good hostel, but quite empty nowadays as it's the end of the season in Weligama. The aircon in my dorm barely worked so was sweating most of the time. The hostel does not have a generator so when the power cuts out daily prepare to sweat. There isn't much of a breeze unfortunately. Would recommend Hangtime instead.
