    This is a great hostel with really awesome staff. Really humble kiwi guys and local Hazem all were the best. Even the cleaning staff is real friendly. I was booked into private for 2 nights. When I arrived there was mix up but the staff took care and sorted it all out. The place was really clean and loved the pool. Best hostel in Sri Lanka.

    The owners are two funny kiwis and have lots of stories about their travels to tell. They can give you advise on where to go and what to do in Mirissa/Sri Lanka. I really loved the outdoor area with the bar and pool. Great atmosphere for parties! They also have two cute little puppies, Slim & Shady. The beach, restaurants and supermarkets aren't far away. I met some awesome people there and had an amazing time staying at whynotbackpackers. Ill come back one day for sure!

    Super gutes Party-Hostel, alle haben um 5 spätestens angefangen zu saufen und sind um 11 oder so dann noch weg. Unbedingt das dorm mit AC nehmen, in dem andern ist es unaushaltbar bei der Hitze. Pool hat angenehme Temperatur, alles relativ sauber und organisiert. Man bekommt ein Chipband womit Getränke oder einen Scooter zB bezahlt. Würde wieder kommen !

    Nice and friendly hostel! It is perfect, when you want to meet people and party! It has a good outside common area, but the water in the pool was not so clean. The room was okay, the bathroom wasn’t so good (the shower was almost nothing)! We had the opportunity to book the AC room, both nights it didn’t work. When we asked them to fix it, it worked, but just half of the night though!
