    The only party hostel in Sri Lanka! Don’t waste your time with other hostels searching for a party. Every night theres drinking games and most people go to beach parties after. Proper social, decent staff and great atmosphere plus the place has a pool and bar! Booked for 3 nights ended up here for 6. Be sure to stay for the boat party on sunday and visit doctors house on wednesday. Non ac rooms were pretty warm so swapped to an ac room and it was a lot better!

    This is the only hostel we have been to in Sri Lanka with a party atmosphere. The staff are very attentive in what they do and play a big role in creating this atmosphere from early in the day. It's easy to see how this place will be a well known solotravellers hotspot in the near future. The under the bed security locker are decent and the toilet/shower area is very clean. The only issue we had was we stayed in the non AC room. A vent may be needed in these rooms to allow circulation at night.

    PARTYYY! This is definitely a party hostel and you are guaranteed a good time and probably a hangover. It’s really close to the beach and lots of restaurants and good base for both Weligama and Galle. Would highly recommend just make sure your liver is prepared! And keep an eye on your tab, it’s easy to rack up a monster bill!

    Shockingly warm rooms. Aircon does not work. If you want to be off your tits on any substance, then go here. Not for us though.
