Q & A

  • How was the food?

    Surfing Wombats Hostel in Midigama, really good italian food. Also check the local Roti places. Its a local food which we still cook at home, very delicious.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Take the other way around. Most tourists travel clockwise in Sri Lanka, the transports are less crowded the other way around.

  • Packing tips?

    When you go to the highlands bring rain jackets and long trousers. The best would be zip trousers as it can get hot quickly.

  • Transportation Tips?

    In Sri Lanka for sure the train, its not very fast but the distances are not very far as well.

  • Booking details?

    We booked everything via booking or even better look at booking and then check directly with the hostel.
