Stayed at this hotel while on holiday in the Messiah. I note that it was one of the cheapest in the area, but this did not affect the living conditions. The windows of my room overlooked a modest but very cozy common courtyard. The room itself was equipped with everything you need. The beach was about 10 minutes walk. In general, for my money - it was the best option.

Everything about this hostel is perfect. I came as a solo female traveller and instantly felt at home. James, the owner, is so helpful and friendly. The hostel itself is nothing short of 5*. The pool and yoga deck are so good for chilling and it is in walking distance of all the sights in Mirissa. It is the perfect location with it being slightly set back form the hustle and bustle. The rooms and facilities are brilliant and I would reccomend this hostel to anyone. Thanks so much James! I will be coming back for sure :)

We stayed at the property for a night and it was beyond our expectations. First of all the property owner / Manager Mr. James was a very sweet and a kind soul full of hospitality. The property is newly built, very spacious rooms, washrooms and cleanliness was always on point. We specially loved the pool area which was constructed to give you lot of eco and nature vibes. This property is totally worth the money and even the breakfast tasted delicious. Mirissa beach is just 5 minutes walk from the property. It's the perfect cozy little hotel if you want to relax and unwind.

I was told about this hostel from a friend and WOW so happy I took her advice. This hostel is seriously beyond what you'd expect from any hostel. It's seriously the cleanest, nicest, and the best hostel I've ever stayed at. The owner really thought of everything when he opened this place. I do have some amazing hostels I've stayed at during all my travels but this by far beats them all. What makes this place stand out is the fact I feel like I'm staying at a nice hotel. I love how seriously they take the cleanliness of this place. Every day they come in to clean the room and if you're here for a few days they will ask you if you'd like your sheets changed, I love how each room has it's own bathroom with two showers and the toilet is separate. I've never stayed at a hostel that has done that. I'll walk into my dorm after a day at the beach and you can smell they just cleaned the room. Sweep and mop the floors the bathroom is fresh and they always make sure you have what you need in the room. The service is top-notch. It is only a 5-minute walk to the beach and all restaurants. I'd rather stay here then pay more to stay on the beach and get less service than I get staying here. Breakfast here is great. The staff is amazing! The vibe of this hostel is wonderful. It's like we were all family, loved it! just can't say enough about this place. So if you're in Mirissa, I suggest you stay here for sure. You won't regret it.

Booked this place last minute for a night and ended up extending our stay. We had a private double room with ac but there are options to share in hostel style dorms also. The place is specifically designed and built as a hostel which can be seen by its good lay out, there are communal areas to hang out and meet other travellers as well as private areas to relax... The host, James (an Aussie) couldn’t be more accommodating and is very helpful for all local advice. Really happy we decided to stay here. 👌🏽
