Hostel really quite, on the side of main road. Family that runs that hostel super comunicative, very helpful. 1 km to the beach, really close to train station. They have bicycles to rent, so you can ride to your perfect beach. I recommend going just outside Unawatuna, it is a paradise there.

Poor”

Stay here was nothing special. Do not book the mixed dorm.Its a den for mosquitoes.The ceiling is made of asbestos sheets and get super hot in during the day. There are only 2 ceiling fans which are not enough. There is No AC and No hot water..It needs a major remake if not then shut down that part of the hostel.

Nice hostel with great staff. They took us to a festival which was nearby. There are different beaches which you have to walk to. Unawaruna Beach is about 15 minute by foot. Dewata Beach is great for beginners surfing and not so crowded like Weligama. The hostel had a fridge and a small kitchen corner which you could use. Also the owner was willing to help with whatever you needed. Also the hostel is not at the main street so it is relatively quiet. The only negative thing was that there is no wifi in the biggest dorm upstairs. Otherwise I can really recommend that place!
