"Lost in Lanka" means free your mind and forget about busy days while you are in Sri Lanka!
And this is the name of our cozy youth hostel, lost in jungle but close to a surf spot.

We are located in the quiet town of Kathaluwa close to South beach Surf Point.

What are the advantages of choosing us among the variety of hostels to stay at
Sri Lanka?

A very quite and peaceful village location, at the same time we are just 500 m from the perfect surfing beach beach, 200 m from a railway station and 300m from the bus stop.

Several cool and not expensive restaurants are around, including our favorite one, Koroburuwa Beach Front Restaurant & Bar.

And we are just 15 minutes of ride to the historical Galle fort and just within a few minutes from the picturesque Koggala lake.

Seems like you can find almost everything you need for your perfect escape.

We are also a great budget transit stop on your way to/ from Arugam bay from May till October to give you
a break in the middle of your trip.

We are ready to guide you into the best and the most interesting places on the island and will help to organize various excursions, SUP tours and surfing and yoga guiding.

How to find
You will need to fly to Colombo Airport and from there you will need to get to Kathaluwa (120km).
An airport transfer is by far the quickest and easiest.
We can organize this for you if you notify us by email. The transfer will cost $70 per taxi and will take approximately 1,5-2,5 hours.
If you are feeling adventurous, you can make your own way to the hostel via bus. You will need to get a tuk-tuk/taxi to Maharagama bus station in Colombo then get a bus to Galle followed by a bus to Kathaluwa.
Step out after you cross Madol Duwa bridge through Koggala lake.
You can find the exact pointer on the map below.
