About Hangtime Hostel

The building of Hangtime Hostel was the most difficult process, trying to change a concrete structure into something more natural and fitting with the beach opposite and the tropical forrest behind. A lot of natural local products were used in the fit out including bamboo for the shutters and curtains, coconut rope for the wrapping of the columns, cinnamon sticks for the front fence and rooftop cafe and palm leaves for the front facade, bathrooms and surfboard storage.

The common areas are integral to the hostel as they give the opportunity to meet people from all around the world. Everyone is there to enjoy Sri Lanka via surfing, eating, exploring and/or yoga-ing. The suspended nets on each level and the rooftop cafe are the perfect places to speak about all your adventures and get all the tips about the next place to go.

In the end Hangtime is all about Surfing, Hanging, Smiling. If Hangtime can bring people together via surfing, allow you to hang with people from all different places around the world and leave people with a smile, then it’s all been worth while.

Accommodation Information

Hangtime offers two types of accommodation; double rooms and dorm rooms.

The double rooms are on the ground floor of the building, overlooking the landscaped front garden with views of the ocean and the waves. Each room has a private balcony with a sun chair, a hammock chair and passionfruit vines. The big surprise comes when you open the door to your room. Your bed is actually inside am old fishing boat. Hangtime found 4 boats from around Sri Lanka and transported them by a combination of truck and tractor. All being ex fishing boats, they have been cleaned and restored by a local carpenter, who has made a bed frame which the unsymmetrically made mattress sits in.

All rooms have the option of air conditioning, they all have mosquito nets, international powerpoints with USB points, lockable cupboards and private bathrooms with hot water. They are finished with 2 Sri Lankan paintings and a wall mural by local artist Vishmika.

Each room is different as no two artworks or boats are the same. You certainly feel like you are in Sri Lanka when in the room, however with that extra comfiness.
