Are you going to visit Hikkaduwa?
Come and celebrate with us the great opening to start the new season.
Mandala is a eco friendly and social hotel and hostel.

Steffi´s Mandala is located right on the famous Narigama beach.
It offers 4 beautiful private rooms for couples and friends, a mixed dorm room with 10 beds and two female dorms with 4 beds.

Our restaurant offers healthy vegan and vegetarian food like different bowls, wraps, burgers, snacks, homemade smoothies and a good coffee.
It is open from 07:30 until 08:00pm. Our bar is open till late. :)

All our hostel and restaurant guests don´t need to buy water. Instead of selling plastic bottles our guests can use the water refill station.

Mandala is the place to be!

We have great facilities to share with our guests. Our friendly staff will help you with everything you need to spend a unforgettable time.

Hikkaduwa is perfectly for travelers, backpackers and surfers.
When you are not chilling on the beach, join our sunrise yoga classes with an awesome view.

Our new highlight:
We now also offer kayak tours on Rathgama Lake followed by Rice&Curry. This is not to be missed and is especially fun in the company of other hostel guests. Get in touch with us for more information.

Please note:
We do not have public refrigerators and community kitchen, as we have a restaurant and bar operation. Please do not consume your own alcoholic beverages in the restaurant and bar area. :)
Wifi is only available in the restaurant area. We also do not have mosquito nets in the rooms.

If you have any suggestions for improvement, please feel free to contact us, we will gladly accept and implement them!

See you soon! :)

Excellent stay - so much more atmosphere than the hotel I moved from. It positive things have been said a lot - 3 points of feedback. There was very little hand soap anywhere, even outside toilets which was a shame. It would also be great to have working pegs in the rain shower - rusty screws out the wall aren't ideal for putting clothes and towels on etc. Finally, some music variety would be nice. The evenings always seem dominated by loud house music. Excellent stay, however

Well decorated hostel with good vibes & great food, it’s situated right on the beach too which is a bonus! My only complaints would be that you don’t get a towel and the beds are very uncomfortable other than that we had a really lovely stay!

I really enjoyed my stay here! Dorm was really cute. I stayed in the 4 female only dorm. Staff were so helpful! I accidentally reset the lock on my bag and couldnt get in, so they helped me take it off so I could access my bag. Saviours. Always available to help. Coffee was too expensive for how it tastes. Same price as in Australia, but nowhere near as good. Need at least one hook in the bathroom. Bathroom was also a little bit smelly. Beds super comfy and hostel is quiet so easy to sleep.
