    Such a chill place! Lovely people, clean rooms basic but all you need and most importantly 2min walk from the beach!! :) Small kitchen available also if you feel like cooking your own meal, but plenty of restaurants around!

    Cool place a little bit out of Trincomalee. The 10 bed dorm I stayed in has a lot of lockers and 2 bathrooms as well as aircon and fans. You can rent a scooter for a rate of 1000 rupees per day or take a tuktuk to Trincomalee for 300. As I was there off season there was not a lot open but 7 out of 10 beds were taken the first night of my stay. I enjoyed my time there and might come again when season started.....

    Great place to chill and meet new people, the owner is really cool and can arrange snorkeling tours and safari for you. The only thing is that the toilet facilities aren’t that good. But I mean, it is a hostel and what can you expect? I really recommend this place.

    A lovely hostel, perfect for backpackers. The rooms were nice however the bathroom really wasn’t great. Not very clean and had a lot of insects which made there way into the room. Thankfully there was a mosquito net! WiFi was good! The location was great, right near the beach and short walk to cafes and restaurants. However it’s worth noting the hostel is in the town of upavelli which is quite a bit north of trincomalee but only a short tuk tuk or car ride away.

    Cool hippy/chilled hostel, the hosts were great and greeted us straight away. Really close to the beach, but quite far from trincomalee center. Mixed dorm is much better than female as there is only 1 toilet for female dorm a little outside the room, and the room gets very hot. Overall nice place but no reception/breakfast and drinks available - although close to some corner shops.
