About The Social Shack

The Social Shack is a socially conscious hostel dedicated to giving travellers a great experience whilst giving back to the war affected communities living in the Trincomalee area.

Founded by two Sri Lankan travellers, the hostel has all the touches you need for a comfortable stay. Every bed has a power socket and light with ample space for guests to chill out, have a drink and meet fellow travellers. A/C and non A/C room are also available.

The Social Shack offers 'Trinco talks' every morning to explain the history of Trincomalee and the owners regularly give tours around the local villages to give guests an insight into the local way of life.

Staying at The Social Shack is not just fun, it's culturally enriching and an experience you'll never forget!
