Property Description

Welcome to Rockstel Towers!

Nestled away in a quiet, scenic spot surrounded by nature, Rockstel Towers marks the beginning of the journey for the 'Rockstel' brand of hostels. Here you find a typical Sri Lankan country house with a twist, which has been curated and molded into a fun hostel with a unique character, through painstaking attention to detail.

As you enter, you see the paved front garden, facing the colorful social area on the front patio, with large comfy sofas to sit on. As you walk inside, you will see our friendly frontdesk staff at the reception, and a host of informative posters, a mini library, and lots of colorful detailing on the walls. Once you complete your check in formalities, you will be led to one of our thematically designed rooms. The hostel has 3 air-conditioned dorms , 2 dorm rooms with fans, and 2 private rooms. Three of the rooms have ensuite washrooms, and the others share the two additional washrooms. You will also be provided with a key to your individual locker, for your valuables.

The hostel is quite centrally located from all four beaches in Unawatuna that travellers frequent, and we feel that if we were located closer to any one beach, we will be further from the rest. Having said that, its still a bit of a walk, so we have made scooter rentals available for you through third party providers. If you want to be driven somewhere, our staff would be more than happy to organise a tuk tuk for you. If you are adventurous enough, you can even rent a tuk tuk and ride it yourself.

At Rockstel Towers, we take pride in being considered the most unique hostel experience in Unawatuna, and to this end we have made every effort to create a “home away from home” feel. While we don’t like to structure the experience into an events calendar , we organize impromptu activities such as drinking games, quiz nights etc. Our vision is to create a hostel experience a hostel family that you will never forget.
Eagerly Awaiting to Welcome you at our hostel in the jungle

Very fun and chill hostel! We stayed here in the 'low season,' but the hostel was still full of life. You get instant connections with guests and even with the local staff. Evenings were spent chilling out on the sofa's or going out for a drink 🍻 It's also a great place to learn how to surf. And for the animal lovers, there are always cute animals around, from monkeys, dogs, cats and peacocks to iguanas and geckos. All in all very relaxing and fun place, definitely recommend!

Lovely and friendly staff. Breakfast is available. The communal dinners in the evening are a real bonus and beneficial for getting to know other travellers in the property, especially if you are solo travelling. Air conditioned and comfortable dorms. The hostel is about a 20 minute walk from the beach/shops/restaurants. 5 minute walk to the bus stop, which is well connected to other locations such as Galle and Ahangama on the coast.

Nice hostel with very helpful staff. Family dinner every night makes it easy to meet people and dorms are comfortable. It’s a little out of the way but you can rent a moped from the hostel or the bus stop is a short walk away.
