Hostel
Midigama

The Surfing Wombats Hostel Midigama is the place with the great vibes, delicious food and the most fun and friendly people. Many people say it is the best hostel in Sri Lanka. Here you will meet the surf enthusiasts who are always looking for the perfect waves in the many surf spots in the area. They wake up for sunrise surf and come back for breakfast in the restaurant before they are off to catch waves again. Other people like to sleep for longer, maybe after a fun night of partying. Then it’s perfect that the beds in the dorm are bigger than the hangover and that the water filterer is only a few meters away! The hostel is also the best place to be if you are travelling alone and looking for company. With many different types of people and super friendly staff you will always have someone to talk to and someone to join for the many activities and happenings in Midigama!
