    Loved the atmosphere and the private room was flawless. Best towel and mattress in a hostel ever. Some food options were missing, but I know the guys are working on setting it up. Great vibes and staff were awesome too. Will be back

    Great place for a good party. Probably not the best place for the conservative type. Very clean and secure. Close to every thing you need. They do need more staff working and they need to learn their systems better. The owners publicly argued regularly and occasionally appeared frustrated so it did become awkward at times when you needed to approach them for advice without feeling like you are bothering them. In saying that it has only just recently open and definantly worth a visit.

    We stayed over the weekend- its a very European hostel which looked fun but having tried the bar one evening we found the backpacker staff were more interested in eating their pizza & talking to friends than serving punters so we left to go To one of the many bars marissa has to offer. Weirdly, we were called out on not buying drinks in the hostel on checking out. Good potential, location, facilities but needs to find Sri Lankan charm. Would have expected more from a party hostel.
