Perfect location right next to train station, restaurants and the main road. Included breakfast was great and vibe was very good to chill and meet people. Clean modern bathroom and personal fans in the beds. Great spot if you want to surf or explore all the beaches in and around unawatuna for a few days

Really enjoyed my stay in cycling backpackers, extended my stay for 3 extra nights as opposed to 1 originally. Lucky and all the volunteers at the hostel are super helpful and friendly. The hostel has a nice social atmosphere with fun activities everyday to get people involved. Comfy beds and big lockers. Free pancakes and coffee in the mornings! Highly recommend staying here when in Unawatuna!

Really disappointing. The hostel makes lots of effort to bring people together with shared activities which is a huge plus. But the facilities are awful. No a/c, no bed sheets or privacy curtains so you have to sleep half naked due to the heat with nothing to cover yourself. The beds themselves were uncomfortable and filthy. Bathrooms were in an even worse state with no soap. Location is poor with a 20 min walk to the beach but luckily right next to the train station for a swift exit.
