My experience at the hostel in Sri Lanka exceeded all of my expectations. My girlfriend and I were welcomed warmly and on the first day felt like family. Everyone that was volunteering at the hostel were other travelers, but the area is still very local. There's local shops and food near by and it's right next to the beach. The managers and owner were very flexible with our time and even allowed us to leave for a little bit to explore the country. I would definitely recommend if you're social and enjoy working and living with others. Can't wait to come back!
