Property Description

No more Power outages in ?THE LONG HOSTEL"
The Long Hostel is the most modern, most popular and largest Hostel in Arugam Bay!
The hostel has a 15.60 kWp solar system (see picture in gallery) which has been expanded with lithium batteries to store electricity. As such, we are the only "Green" property in Arugam Bay which provides always electricity during power outages without running a diesel generator.

It's built in 2016 and offers accommodation for 42 guests.
Air-conditioned and non-air-conditioned dorms or private rooms with attached bathrooms and budget dorms with fans and common bathrooms. All beds in the dorms have a locker for each guest for the security of luggage.

The property has a coffee-shop offering European coffee, espresso, cappuccino and iced coffee. The hostel also offers breakfast, lunch. dinner, short dishes, drinking water, cool drinks and fruit juices. Laundry service is provided at this property. The bathrooms are all modern and cleaned daily. In the outdoor garden are hammocks, a few with a canopy. The hostel provides stands for surfboards to store them secure.
For the security of the guests a CCTV system with recorder is equipped around the hostel. In the Lobby is a refrigerator for the food storage of our guests.
A game collection, tournament certified Carrom Board, chess, game of cards and dice boards are available. The hostel also offers beach balls and frisbees to take to the beach.

The beach, restaurants, surfboard hire and surf schools, scooter hire, ATM and supermarkets are all to find in short walking distance. We provide Tuk-Tuk services to all surf points around. The highlight of your stay in Sri Lanka might be a wild life Tuk-Tuk safari, which you can book by Mr. Nihar for very moderate prices. The Hostel stuff will give you more information and can help you with your booking.

The reception of the Hostel will be open daily from 7.00 am till 9.00 pm. From 9.00 pm till next morning 07.00 am is a night watchman on duty. Guest who arrive late in the night should send us a message that we can inform the night watchman.


We speak English and German.

By far the best hostel I have stayed in Sri Lanka. Very clean and very good food. You can refill mineral water into your bottle for a lower price. If you don't have a bottle, you can lend a bottle from the hostel. No power cuts in The Long Hostel, because they have solar and batterie backup! Amazing!!!

We loved our stay at The Long hostel! The staff is great and ready to help 24/7. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean! The hostel is just a minute away from the beach and very well located on the main street where you can find restaurants and shops. It's a great place to meet people and have a lot of fun!!
