Property Description

Tomorrowland Hostel: a unique place on its own. A free-spirit, open minded and vibrating backpackers hostel surrounded by breathtaking views and sceneries. A quiet and peaceful place in nature full of pure energy, yet just 15 minutes (easy bus connection) away from the towns of Ella and Ballaketuwa. Situated in the beautiful hill country of Ella, we have clear views of the sunrise, sunset, tea plantations, Little Adam's Peak and Ella Rock.

For us, one of the essences of traveling is freedom. We try to create a place where you can be free, where you can feel at home away from home and where everything is based on love and respect instead of strict rules. We approach hosting you as flexible as possible, sometimes this works and sometimes we need to improve. But we always try our best to give you an unforgettable experience. We offer basic sleeping facilities (equipped tents and dormitories) because we believe you don't need anything else to be happy. Tomorrowland is all about the community- and family feeling, the people, the atmosphere and overall experience. We have a bar and soul kitchen, with fresh home-made food and family dinners every day to make sure you don't have to go anywhere else. We are not a party hostel but when the vibe is asking for it we can turn the place into a nightclub and play some amazing tunes from our dj booth. Usually we play any kind of music and burn candles and incense sticks at night to create a warm, cozy and homely atmosphere. Relaxing, unwinding, connecting or throwing a party; we have unlimited possibilities to give the people what they feel like the most.

To make the place even more unique, we now also have a tattoo studio with the amazing 'Black Owl Ink' as our resident tattoo artist! Why not get some fresh ink while staying with us?

We are a no-nonsense hostel without many rules and restrictions. We like to trust people and try to give you the feeling of freedom. Feel at home and just don't be a dickhead. We are all brothers and sisters... Only love, positive energy and good vibes accepted!

- No check-in or check-out times. We like to take things slowly, only when you're ready!
- Payments only in cash upon leaving, while staying with us we trust you and you keep track of your own bill!
- Food not included, but drinks and fresh food available against reasonable prices.

Check out our Facebook (Tomorrowland Hostel - Ella) or Instagram (tomorrowlandhostel) for more good vibes and impressions!

Looking forward to meet you!

Love & light,
Tomorrowland Crew. View House Rules

    Tomorrowland feels more like a home than a hostel. So many good vibes from the thoughtful mix of music, insence and candlelight to the warm, welcoming and fun staff and people. Thanks for all that you do tomorrow land crew!

    Great hostel, it has a different vibe to most other hostels. All the guys were so accommodating and happy to help or give advice where they could. The view is incredible! have already recommended to people headed Ella way!

    אף פעם לא הייתי במקום קסום כזה! אווירה מדהימה, מקום היפי ושיתופי. הצוות והאווירה שבמקום גורמת לך להרגיש שאתה חוזר הביתה לחיק המשפחה המקום קצת רחוק ממרכז העיר אבל בהחלט שווה את המאמץ להגיע לשכב על ערסל מול נוף קסום על העמק ולהינות מהאוויר, מהאנשים, מהארוחות המשפחתיות ומהפשטות שהמקום מביא איתו

    Tomorrowland is an amazing place. I stayed in a tent on the first night due to lack of availability of bunks. After the first night I decided to stay in the tent. The walk to the top isnt too difficult. Staff are super friendly and take care of your needs. All though it's not the party hostel I was made to think not is, the atmosphere is brilliant and it's a really social environment. The view is amazing. Facilities are great but the showers outside mean sometimes ants all over. (Wear sandals

    Tomorrow Land is one of my favorite hostels! The great vibes here seem to attract the best people traveling through Ella. The family dinners are always delicious and are a great way to get everyone together. It’s a bit far from the town but the buses are easy to grab and are super cheap to take. The view also makes it worth the trek. The carom board here is also the nicest in all Sri Lanka! I had to extend my stay many nights to find out why it was really called tomorrow land.

    Cool place with great views. Staff are lovely and the home cooked food is really good. Because it’s quite isolated at the top of the mountain (6km from the town) everyone tended to eat dinner and breakfast together which was nice so you could easily meet people. Downside was that they don’t rent bikes directly and they played exclusively EDM music, which isn’t great if that’s not what you’re into (which I’m not). Still I would recommend it as a cool, unique, social hostel.

    I can see the appeal of Tomorrowland, the hostel itself is really cool and the views are great. It personally wasn’t my vibe, they were playing techno music so loud from about 5pm when we just wanted to talk to everyone and relax. It’s quite a bit out of town up a really big hill. The room wasn’t secure or particularly clean. Ok overall but I wouldn’t go back.

    Got a sick tattoo BUT They don’t change the bedsheets. The showers were dirty same with the toilets. The hostel isn’t located in the center which is kind of annoying when you’re staying out for drinks but with a pretty view! The vibe isn’t for everyone since all the people are high 24/7.. The food was good but overall I wouldn’t recommend it.
