I was here 7 days during the Curfew. I had so a nice , relaxed stay here. Wonderful easy going people. All Staff are very helpful and friendly. The Pizza is amazing. And the lokal Food they did for us guest was very delicious. And they make also for us a little Party. So perfect stay during the Curfew.
Hana’s Place is a perfect surfer’s crashpad. It’s the closest accommodation to the break known as Sticks (and also a quick walk/paddle to Insights and the Rock, and a cheap tuk tuk ride to the Midigama breaks). It’s close to the restaurants and powdery sand of Kabalana Beach but feels like a more authentic corner of town, with local homes and businesses all around. Make no mistake, as a place to stay it’s basic. My room was spare but clean room with a bed, a fan, simple decorations and a perfunctory en suite bathroom. It also had AC and a pleasant seaview balcony. But if your focus is on surfing, it’s totally adequate and comfortable. The garden is a nice place to chill, and there are plenty of more luxurious places nearby where you can go for a drink or meal if you want to splurge. The people who run Hana’s are friendly and extremely laidback. There’s none of the formality of a hotel. They’re enjoying themselves and don’t get worked up about much. They also cook amazing Italian food in Hana’s restaurant. The animals are just as swell— pups Hana and Tequila and the one-eyed kitten Gato are all lovely and sweet. There are a few minuses. Like many places it’s between the railroad tracks and the busy main road, so there is some traffic noise. The nearby shops have a habit of blasting questionable music at strange times, like 9am or siesta hours. And there is a very naughty monkey who kept trying to break into my room. But none of these should deter the budget traveler/surfer from spending a week or two at Hana’s. It’s a bargain and generally very chill. I’d definitely go back. …
Hana’s place is an amazing chill place! In the garden you have lot of beautiful lights and trees, that create a magic ambient. The room and the bathroom was very clean and the bed was comfortable, with a mosquito net. The Italian owner is a very nice guys, and here in Hana’s place you can taste the original Italian kitchen: many kind of pasta and a wood fired pizza, with Italian good ingredients. The international or Sri Lankan breakfast was included in the price of the room and was rich and tasty. I stayed in Hana’s place for 2 incredible weeks and I felt like home, so i’ll For sure return!
Very nice garden and super friendly owner! Good wood fired pizza and pasta and breakkie is included in the room price :) stayed there for 2 nights, the surf is right in front and Hana is just the loveliest host! thumbs up!!
Very friendly and sweet Italien owner, makes you feel like being home! Great Italien food (special pizza oven!), probably the best western food we had during the whole trip through Sri Lanka. Surf Spot right in front. Definatly worth a visit!
