    What can I say... This place made me feel like I was part of a family. Felt like the hostel attracted only nice people. Also you can tell that people who work there, really has put their hearts to the place and they genuinely wish you to feel welcomed and loved. Wanderlust is a community - right next to the beach - that you can quickly start feeling belonging to. Wanderlust is for chilling, surfing and eating the best rice'n'curry Wanderlust is for making life-long friends

    Amazing place with a lot of charm. Right in front of the beach and in front of surfspots. The atmosphere is fantastic. If you are looking for more than just a bed stay at Wanderlust. The best of all are the delicious pancakes in the morning.

    We booked at the 25th of October for four days and we are still here. At at the moment Wanderlust is moving to a new place, which is still 1 minute walk from the beach. The last painting and cleaning work is almost finished. This hostel is incredibly warm and familiar. The owner is a friendly local guy (his food is delicious!) Come around and enjoy the time, go surfing and chill at the new chill area. We definitely recommend it :)

    We stayed 3 days in this super cool hostel. The staff and the guests are friendly, it's like a family. The family dinners are so tasty ! You can either have fresh milkshakes and rest in the chill area or cross the street to be on the beach. I highly recommend this place.

    Staff was lovely! Breakfast was awesome - pancakes were first I had in Sri Lanka and they were on point. Beds were nice. They were a little further down the beach than I would have liked - it was a walk to find some Roti or anything else - but what can they do? 🤷🏼‍♀️ They have a surf instructor on sight and scooter rental. Everyone there are basically surfers and are chill as can be! Showers weren’t hot but that’s the norm. I would absolutely stay there again!

    Due to an error from website after booking, our stay at Wanderlust was not possible. Instead, the staff from Wanderlust were super helpful and helpes us book two dorm beds at the hotel right beside them. They also helped us book a Safari and the rest of the staff seemed lovable. The common outside area was really nice and the staff were very social with the guests. Cannot comment on anything else,

    Awful place to stay if you have any more maturity than an 18 year old away from parents for the first time. Dark, dingy, dirty rooms. Kitchen utensils not washed with soap, just water. No hot water. Blankets unwashed. Staff spoke no English, not even a Hello or even a smile/ eye contact. I always felt like I was imposing on their chill out time. Wasn't checked into my room for 45 minutes on arrival. When checking out, I was forced to pay more money than I was quoted on Hostel World. AVOID.
