  • Description


    We are one of most popular hostels located in Mirissa, south coast, Sri Lanka. And of course it's popular for good reasons. Our hostel is known as a place not only where you can have a really chill/ great time with fellow travelers but also for great accommodation as a tropical country hostel. We always believe that "Friends are the family you choose". This is a special place where strangers become lifelong friends easily, travelers keep coming back calling it Home, a place travelers which don't wanna leave .

    I am a local girl who decided to put life in to risk to see 50% of the world with the 3rd world country passport. I used to be a media & marketing strategist for a multinational company until end of 2017. Decided to quit my corporate job since I desperately wanted to travel. Here I am, I decided to open one of coolest hostels in Sri Lanka (first local female owned hostel) to fund my travels, to find lifelong friends all around the world, and help people who are in need. And to support strong young females to do what they love.

    We have the hostel, café and a shop together in the same premises. We have few locals working for the café, hostel reception and cleaning. There are 4 opportunities at a time for volunteers mainly for yoga and social.

    Looking forward for hands of people who feels like sunshine since we really willing to embrace like-minded people who is fitting perfect to this culture of warmth of a family and home.
