    Very good7.2
    A nice warm hostel :) The staff were warm and welcoming. Great to talk to. The hostel was nice & clean. Lovely kitchen. Did some cooking for myself - was very convenient. Would definitely go back. Only, it itched a lot at night - loads of mosquitoes. Also, a single chargint point in a dorm for 4 and not near the beds- might get difficult and inconvenient. Maybe, can be worked upon.

    Decent spot Stayed 3 nights then went to a cheaper hostel for another 3 nights. Seems a bit over priced. Friendly and helpful staff. Rented snorkels from them and went to turtle bay. Breakfast is basic and decent- toast, butter, jam and fruit. Only 1 outlet in the rooms to charge your things so that’s a bit annoying. Nice kitchen area to cook your own food.

    Best hostel ever! We enjoyed our stay in hostel first in Mirissa a lot! We booked 10 nights to have a base in Mirissa and explore the surrounding areas from there and we didn’t regret it! The hostel is driven by super nice young people who are always there to help and most importantly to keep the travelers together and entertained. There is something going on every day, either sunset and cocktails on the beach, movie night or bbq. The guys are doing a great job! We spend the Christmas Eve in the hostel. Also here the hosts ensured get together for all travelers with a special Christmas BBQ and drinks. The location is just perfect if you want to stay close to beach and be not far away from city center and all local shops. Good surf spots are nearby and a beautiful beach as well! Thank you guys for making our stay perfect! We wish you good luck with developing the hostel, opening the new juice and breakfast bar and hope to see the outcomes one day :-)

    Good value for money if you're on a budgetWe had a big room with private bathroom, very clean and spacious. Fan in room but if u want to use AC then u need to pay lil bit extra (mosquito net was blocking the fan a bit so the night was kind of hot). Small breakfast included. This is a guesthouse with good vibes and location 10min walk to Secret Beach of Mirissa. Good value for money!

    Запах мочи в номере”

    Ужасный стойкий запах мочи в номере. На обращение администрация предложила освежитель воздуха. Нет кондиционера и уборки, зато есть насекомые. И невыносимый отвратительный запах мочи. Поберегите себя. За 40 долларов в сутки в мириссе можно найти гораздо более удачное жилье
