    Hi, we are brand new owners of a beautifully lush hostel in Weligama on the Southern Coast of Sri Lanka. Our Hostel is located 10 minutes away from the best beginner/intermediate surfing spots in Sri Lanka. We currently have a staff of three who run day to day operations. Our property is in a truly Sri Lankan village a surrounded by coconut trees and lush greenery. It is the ideal place to get away from the world and unwind. You can immerse yourself in the Sri lankan culture which is unique to anywhere else.

    We currently need volunteers who are good at garden landscaping and enjoy garden work. We need help with putting up a green wall around our boundary. We also welcome mural painters and those good at carpentry to help with our DIY furniture.
