Rooms are super clean and the best thing is that you are really close to the beach, the staff is really nice. Tasty foods. We will come again.

The best hostel I've ever been in Sri Lanka. I can recommend for people who want private - air-conditioned - rooms with attached bathroom, hot water shower and also to backpackers. The dorms are very exceptional, the lockers are huge and the vibes there are amazing. The 4-bed-dorms are also air-conditioned and have a separate bathroom. Breakfast and dinner are so delicious. Cannot be better!

This is THE BEST place to stay in Arugam Bay. It is close to every thing you want to do here. The prices are so cheap. It is very clean and all the people are very friendly. They have good Wi-Fi and they have their own generator (that is so quiet) so you will never even know that the main power in the town is out.
I will definitely be coming back to this place when I return and I will recommend it to all my friends too.

Eine super Zeit gehabt. Das Hostel Team erfüllt jeden Wunsch und die Stimmung im Hostel ist super familiär. Es hat an nichts gefehlt! Immer wieder gerne !

Great hostel , had a really nice time and enjoyed Arugam Bay, very good hostel people, thank you!

Bestes Hostel in Sri Lanka! Super freundliche und liebenswerte Gastgeber! Tolle Unterkunft! Alles extrem sauber!
2 Minuten bis zum Strand! Top Frühstück! Vielen Dank für die tollen und erholsamen Tage!

Tolles neues Hostel, sicherlich vor allem, weil Harald der Besitzer so gut wie möglich versucht, europäischen Standard in Sri Lanka zu halten. Alles ist sehr sauber und funktioniert, das Essen schmeckt sehr lecker und es fehlt wirklich an nichts! Preis/Leistung -> unschlagbar!

Sehr sauberes und neues Hostel. Wir hatten eine schöne Zeit zu 5. in einem Dorm. Nichts auszusetzen und absolut zu empfehlen.
Nicht nur Haralds Pfannkuchen zum Frühstück und Manel’s Rice and Curry zum Abendessen sondern auch ihre nette und angenehme Art werde ich nie vergessen. Macht weiter so und alles Gute! 🙂

Best hostel of our 2 weeks in Sri Lanka! Great people and very cool owner!

Sehr schöne Zeit bei euch gehabt. Die Unterkunft ist sauber, zentral gelegen und der “Herbergsvater” Harald ist einfach der Beste! Bis bald!!!

Das beste Hostel in ganz Arugam Bay! Sauberes, ordentliches Hostel und super nette, deutschsprachige Besitzer!
Das traditionelle Essen von Manel ist wirklich hervorragend und auch das Frühstück ist klasse.

Super nette Besitzer, eine saubere Unterkunft und das Essen war auch richtig gut! Wir würden definitiv wiederkommen! 🙂

Es war eine schöne Zeit in eurem äußerst gepflegten Hostel ! Danke für alles ✌️

Stayed there for two weeks. Once you arrive there you don’t want to leave anymore. Great open minded atmosphere. High hygienic standards. Best hostel in Arugam.

The best hostel in Arugam Bay! If you stay for a little while longer the owners will become your adopted AB parents! Couldn’t recommend more! Great vibes and very cheap.

Very cool place, it s clean and safe. Everybody is so friendly. The owner is very cool. Just love the The Long Hostel!!! The smily girl!

Easily the best hostel I have ever stayed at, the hostel was spotless, close to the beach and next door to great restaurants. You have to be careful of Harold’s jokes and Mama’s smile because you’ll end up staying far longer than planned.. Couldn’t recommend this place more!

Highly recommend this hostel if you’re in arugam bay. The hosts are incredible, the people are great and the facilities are clean. Such a great time, thanks for having me

Best hostel I have stayed in on Sri Lanka! Had an amazing time and the owners make you feel like you’re family. Thank you for the amazing two weeks I spent here!!!

Best Hostel in arugam bay! We tried to find a room in about 10 different hostels in arugam bay before (Most of them had too high Prices and were in a very Bad condition! we came to the long Hostel . We booked a single room with an own bathroom. The hostel is 5 weeks old (September 2016) so everything is in top condition and Has a very high Comfort for this Prices! It was the best Hostel we saw in arugam bay By far! There are backpackers from all Countries staying in the Single rooms or dorms. The Owners make you breakfast, Dinner and help you with Things like Transports or informations about arugam bay. It felt like home! We highly recommend this hostel! Especially if you are a backpacker and want european Standards 😉 ! We would 100% stay there Again!

A home away from home. The owners are super friendly. The hostel is like 200meters from the beach side. Extremely clean and good facilities. Was just in operation for 6 weeks when we been there. All managed perfectly! If you come to Arugam Bay you should definitely stay at this place. You won’t regret it!

The place to be in Arugam! Had some great days over here. Everything is good organised, friendly owners and a great place to meet other people. And definitly the most beautiful bathroom of Asia!

Wenn Sauberkeit, kommunikative Backpacker, Hängematten, freundliche Menschen und günstige Preise gesucht sind, ein MUSS!
Danke für die tolle Zeit.

The best hostel in Arugam bay! Really clean and well kept, good wifi and social area and you won’t find a better bathroom/shower in Sri Lanka. It’s also really close to Baby Point and Main Point. Definitely stay here!

The owner and her husband are super friendly. The whole hostel is very clean and the facilities are brand new. We had really delicious dinner and breakfast. It takes you about 5 minutes to get to the beach and also to the next supermarket. If we come to Arugam again we’ll for sure stay here!

Freundliches Personal, Super Atmosphäre, 24h Rezeption, günstige Waschmaschine, saubere Räume, top Ausstattung.
Ich habe meine geliebte Badehose im Hostel vergessen. Harald wird sie seiner Tochter nach Deutschland mitgeben, von wo aus sie sie mir zuschicken wird. Ein unvergleichlicher Service, den man selten erlebt. Vielen Dank euch für die Schöne Zeit vor Ort.

Insane location, cool owners, good food & coffee, super clean & rad vibes!
