Hangover Hostels Mirissa




The Hostelz.com Review

Hangover Hostels Mirissa is a member of the eclectic Sri Lankan hostel chain, located just across the street from the beautiful Mirissa Beach and stunning Parrot Rock island. Hangover Hostels Mirissa is quirky and inspiring, with refurbished containers used as dorm rooms, vibrant wall art created by local artists, and famously known around the island for their burger! Mirissa is a typical stop on the Sri Lanka backpacker route for good reason -- the beach town boasts a relaxing vibe, incredible nature, friendly locals, and great food. Hangover Hostels Mirissa has free Wi-Fi and helps organize excursions for guests like swimming with sea turtles and whale-spotting boat trips.

The Location

Mirissa is a pretty small town and Hangover Hostels is ideally located next to the shore, but also within walking distance to the bus stops, local roti stalls serving the local delicacy, scenic hiking trails, and more. Hangover Hostels is very easy to find with bright signs outside and artistic murals on their facade. It's also well known in the area, so if you get lost, anyone should be able to help point you in the correct direction.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Some of the dorm rooms at Hangover Hostels Mirissa are made of recycled containers, which makes for a really awesome environment. Other rooms in the main building are normal (not containers) but equally charming. The mattresses in the bunk beds are very comfortable, with charging stations in each area. Guests have the option to choose from a private double or twin room; four-bed, mixed dorm rooms; and four-bed, female dorm rooms with an en suite bathroom. The rooms are secured with a key card lock. Most rooms use a communal bathroom, which is kept very clean and boasts modern appliances.

Common Spaces

There are many common spaces at Hangover Hostels Mirissa. Almost every room has an adjacent balcony or is just a few feet away from the rooftop terrace. Throughout the property, there are lounge areas and hammocks, where guests relax and mingle. By the reception, there are large bean bags and next to that are is the in-house restaurant, which prepares delicious meals.


Hangover Hostels Mirissa is a modern hostel with an upbeat backpacker crowd. Strangers become friends and enjoy lazy days together at the beach followed by beers at the Hangover Hostels Mirissa bar. This is a hostel for young travelers, and wouldn't be ideal for backpackers or couples looking for quiet romance.
