    I absolutely loved my stay at YOYO beach hostel, i travelled as a solo female backpacker and the atmosphere was absolutely amazing. Gee and his team are wonderful and made sure everyone was having fun and arranging activities. I particularly recommend the sunset cruise and my favourite part of the evening was the family meal which served great Sri Lankan food. I would highly recommend this hostel if you are starting your adventure in Sri Lanka or just ending it! great location, beach and airport

    Very vibey spot for our last night in Sri Lanka - what a cool send off! Both the family dinner and the arrack attacks were delicious. Thanks Gee and the team for being so accommodating, letting us hang out until our flight the following evening, and for all the laughs.

    You may call him Gee or might like to call him Gee-zus, Gee-nius, Gee-Spot or Gee-man stay at Yo-Yo Hostel and make up your own mind. Gee and the entire crew at Yo-Yo we’re so welcoming and laid back from the moment you walk in, perfect after whatever path you have taken to land at Negombo. Nothing was too much of a hassle and every effort made to make the place social, friendly and fun! Family dinner was out of this world good! Such a humble place, well worth the stop in.

    I had the best time here! From all the places in Sri Lanka this was definitely the most fun! Gee, Sharma and Manza are absolute legends and they make you feel as part of the family. I was supposed to stay here for one night and then go to the Maldives and ended up skipping that and staying for 3 nights. The will help you with anything you need, make sure you have a good time and, as they say, COME as a guest, leave as a friend. I am definitely coming back!

    Best hostel in Sri Lanka!! Awesome free breakfast (that you don’t have to cook yourself), even better family dinners in garden at night (cooked by his mom!!). Best kotthu so far. Gee will take the time to help you plan your trip. And water pressure strong enough to wash your hair! I’ll be back at the end of my trip, already booked!
