It was pure luck that we found this hostel while walking through Unawatuna on our first day in Sri Lanka. We were kind of desperate and lost but suddenly found this friendly and helpful people that welcomed us with fresh drinks and wet towels and immediately made us feel safe in a foreign country. Luckily they had some beds free and we could stay there for the night. In the end we nearly stayed a week and were treated like family.
The 7 Dollars per night include a breakfast that can easily keep you full for the whole day (Coffee,Tea, pancakes, eggs, fruits and a different Sri Lankan speciality every day :) )
From the hostel you can walk to the beach or rent a bike and make a tour with a local. The landlord has connections in whole unawatuna and can help you rent/buy a scooter or find different places to stay all over Sri Lanka.
If you ever come to the South of Sri Lanka make sure to stay at least one night in this beautiful place!!
I stayed for two nights in a dorm and it was one of the best hostels I have ever visited!! Dorm room got enough place, special place for backpacks, private fan, ac and light. The staff was amazing friendly and helped with everything. They offer drinks for local prices and very good breakfast is allready included.
The place itself is very beautiful, with lots of plants and chill areas. Wifi was not working, they organized a new network in only one hour. Bathroom facilities are very modern and clean. I usually don’t give five stars, but this place really deserved it! Thx for making my stay that nice :)
LOCATION: Good, not near the beach but in a good location in town
UBER AVAILABLE: No, but the hostel is close enough to everything you need and there are tuk-tuks everywhere
BREAKFAST INCLUDED: Yes
IF YES, RATE IT: DELICIOUS! I am so, so impressed but the food served! It was filling and plentiful!
WIFI STRENGTH: 6/10
FRIENDLINESS OF STAFF: This has to be the best part of this place. The staff and manager/owner are AMAZING. They’re kind, generous, provide excellent advice, great company for partying (spend NYE together) and are fun to chat to!
COMFORT LEVEL: 10/10
BATHROOM FACILITIES/ CLEANLINESS: 11/10 – honestly!
ANY OUTSTANDING REMARKS ABOUT THIS PLACE: I am so impressed with the service, and the wall kept hostel. It was honestly one of the best I have stayed in. From the bottled water received when checking in, and checking out, to the plentiful supply of coffee and breakfast goodies – fruits, toast, cake and eggs! I loved this place and would highly recommend it to all. As for any improvement, I think the only thing they could do better is get hot water in their showers.
WOULD I STAY HERE AGAIN? YES!
