We had such a warm welcome From joe and he made us a fresh fruit juice on arrival which was very welcome after a days travel The staff were the most welcoming, friendly and accommodating that I have experienced so far in Sri Lanka The bedroom was a great size , lovely bed with mosquitos nets and air con The communal area was lovely and laid back with a nice upper tree house level to sit and watch the world go by. I would recommend this place to anyone !

    What an amazing place! We had such a lovely time and met the best people. Spacious, gorgeous and sparkling clean room! Slept like babies every night. The shortest walk to the beach, and what a great restaurant too! Thank you for having us - a great find, would recommend this place to anyone :)

    Loved our stay at Waypoint! Everyone who worked there was super friendly and lovely. Waypoint is still under construction and I’m sure that once everything is up and running it will be a powerhouse in Arugambay, thanks to its location on the main strip of the town and its incredible chef (get the poké tacos - Out of this world!) would recommend to anyone looking for a cheap, convenient place to stay in Arugam!

    We had an amazing stay here, extended it by 3 nights. Everything is new and fresh, really great set up, staff were brilliant, very helpful and friendly, the place became a home to us. Really convenient location, right in the middle of the main strip, close to the beach and the bars/restaurants. The food at the restaurant was always delicious and fresh. Would definitely recommend for both the hostel and restaurant. Thanks for a great stay 👍🏻

    Great new hotel opening on the Main Street if Arugam Bay. U are a short walk from main point and the owner will help to organise trips to other surf points. Good WiFi, AC and other amenities. The restaurant is also hugely recommended!

    The description is misleading as the whole place is still under construction. Rooms look onto a building site, didn’t have a bin, sheet or soap in the soapdish & toilet didn’t flush. It’s not a ‘brand new fresh hostel’ the AC outdated, bathroom smelt like drains & slow WiFi. No social areas are finished, nowhere to chill comfortably. The owner didn’t ask us how our stay was at the end or say goodbye, emailed feedback with no response. In 6 months it’ll be good, for now it’s a overpriced letdown.
