What Makes It Home?

Our hostel is what you need because…

Who said that the wild cannot be COMFY?


If you are looking for a hostel with a great social environment, chilled out vibes and good times come on down to The Rockstel and join the party!

But why?

Your new accommodation in Unawatuna boasts three common areas with an array of comfortable cushion covered sofas, perfect for meeting other travelers and unwinding after a long day surfing or just kicking back at the beach. A number of chill spaces are dotted throughout our hostel, like our second floor balcony (and we even have a secret chillout space for you to discover). Perfect for enjoying some alone time, reading that holiday book or simply escaping the hustle.

Traveling can be exhausting so don´t worry about the food. If you feel like cooking we have a hostel kitchen upstairs or otherwise, our chef will be in charge of surprising your tastebuds.


We guess that after your journey in the hot Sri Lanka climate you’ll have some sweaty clothes. Not a problem! We have an onsite laundry. And if the sun gods aren´t smiling on us, we also have a drier.


No worries at all. You´ll find a cool international team always on hand to ensure you have the most comfortable and worry-free stay in one of the best hostels you’ve experienced before. We are around 24 hours a day to assist you with anything you require from booking transport to extending your Sri Lankan visa (so that you can stay here as long as you want, and trust us, you will want to ;))

Whether you fancy beach or jungle, having a blast or a chilled stay, here at The Rockstel we bet we have the best hostel in Sri Lanka.
