    This is by far the best hostel I have ever stayed at in my life! I’ve been backpacking for 15 months now and have stayed in a lot of hostels. The pool is always clean, enough beds to sunbathe and they are super comfy. You are provided with a shower and pool towel at no extra charge and each bed is like your own open space, the bed is comfier than most hotels I’ve stayed in let alone hostels and you get your own charging point and bed lamp. There is shampoo, shower gel and body lotion all free

    If only all hostels were this good! In 7 years and 60 countries I've never seen a hostel this nice before! You can't fault it. Perfect location, staff, food, comfy/non squeeky beds, giant lockers etc. They got it figured out. If the ritz carlton had dorm beds, this would be it.

    One of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed at, if a bit on the pricey side for Sri Lanka (particularly as breakfast isn’t included). But in my opinion totally worth it if you’re looking to chill out - the pool area is fantastic and the dorm rooms are super spacious and comfy. Beach is a 5 minute walk away too and met some great people here. Would definitely stay again.

    What a beautiful place to stay. The dorms were amazing probably the best I’ve stayed in. Great value for money . Massive added bonus with the beautiful pool. Breakfast not included and very pricey to eat here but many places just down the road. Right by the beach. Overall great stay would definitely stay again

    This place is great, the staff are all super nice and the rooms/ bathrooms are awesome. I only had two issues, Issue #1) The place is fully booked all the time and absolutely empty??? No atmosphere at all. Issue #2) They offer surf lessons for literally twice the price you get them on the beach. And the coffee is bad. Overall, great hotel & ok hostels

    Be warned: if you want a hostel where you can meet people, get your laundry done at a decent price, and have a cheap breakfast, this hostel is not for you. It is a beautiful building and the beds are wide and comfy, but there is no atmosphere whatsoever, breakfast is incredibly inflated at 1700 a pop, I paid over 2000 rupees for laundry, the Price was not made clear beforehand. If you’re in Sri Lanka for a week, go for it. Those on longer trips should save their money and go elsewhere.

    WAY too expensive for what it is. We decided to “splurge” on this hostel after a few months of backpacking. Don’t be fooled by the pictures. The pool is absolutely disgusting, it’s murky and there’s little creepy crawly bugs in one corner of the pool! The doors to the dorms do not lock which makes it very uncomfortable to sleep at night peacefully. Staff are clueless and rude! The staff at the restaurant messed up our order on 3 different occasions. Save your money and stay somewhere cheaper!
