Good hostel for young travellers - solo or group. Not very comfortable for couples. Bar/restaurant upstairs is great. Needs some cushions!

Great place right across the beach
Hands down the cleanest room we stayed in during our time in Sri Lanka. The room smelt a little damp but was really nicely decorated and the air conditioner worked great. The space is chill with yoga classes and the best rooftop to grab breakfast and watch ppl surf
