    Me and my friends loved staying at the Wonderers hotel. The manager Kajan was so welcoming and friendly and helped us out on multiple occasions such as driving me to an ATM for free and organizing all our tuktuks and day trips. It also had an amazing atmosphere with all of the guests sitting around the big social area in the evening and playing games. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone traveling to Trincomalee!!!

    I really enjoyed my stay at Wanderers hostel and ended up extending my stay there! The host was super nice and helpful. We got good recommendations where to go and what to do in Trincomalee. He arranged us scooters and also an exiting snorkeling tour with sharks! The vibe is chill and the location is really good: beach and many restaurants are really close. There’s also a small kitchen available for cooking! Thank you Wanderers 🙏🏻♥️

    Great hostel, made even better by Kajan who was amazing our whole stay. He recommended some great places to eat and drink and some excursions we could do from the hostel at a better price than sourcing this ourselves. Location was right by the beach which was perfect for us. Thanks for a great stay!

    Very nice choice for Trincomalee. Gadget is an excellent host and the location is perfect. The room is quite comfortable with a ceiling fan and a nice bathroom. There is a very intimate patio area and a pool that is probably filled normally. I was one of the first foreigners since covid started so the area was just starting to wake up from the two year slumber. Everything you need is nearby including the beach, scooter rental, restaurants etc. I would definitely stay here next visit.

    Loved this place - the most fun and sociable hostel I stayed in in Sri Lanka. Gadget VIP is a great guy and could not have done more for us - including cooking some amazing food. Very friendly, chilled place and would definitely go back next time I'm in Trincomalee.

    The host is one of the most chilled guys I ever met, he is really helpful and funny. Some people could argue that he is too laid back. The hostel has a really nice atmosphere and is located perfectly close to a beach, lagoon and a lot of awesome restaurants. Everything reachable by foot. It is a basic hostel with good money value if you want to stay in Trinco. I would come back, had a nice experience.

    Lovely friendly hostel with good vibes. The A/C didn’t work in my room but otherwise the room was good for the price. The hostel helped organise anything we wanted to do (snorkelling and scuba diving) which made everything very easy.

    Host is the chillest guy ever. Really helpful with arranging everything. Dorm is decent value for money, though the showers could do with better water pressure and more regular cleaning. Overall lovely hostel, nice environment with impeccable vibes for hanging out and meeting people! Definitely recommend! (Laptop friendly place too if you've got work to get done.)
