Explore Sri Lanka. With Spindrift.

Hostels made for backpackers by backpackers

Welcome to Spindrift Sri Lanka

Spindrift Hostels are modern backpacker hostels located in two beautiful coastal towns of Sri Lanka; Weligama and Madiha.

Both are equipped with all the essentials a backpacker could need and more! Weligama is just steps from the famous learn to surf beach, has open airy common spaces and nightly socials whereas Madiha’s laidback pool vibes and buzzing rooftop make it a tropical oasis.

At Spindrift Sri Lanka we’re all about comfort, style and creating sociable spaces for travellers to connect! Whichever location you choose you are guaranteed to always feel at home!




Situated on a quiet side street but just steps from the beach, surf and restaurants our Weligama hostel is perfectly situated to explore everything Weligama has to offer. The hostel is set in a beautiful villa with a homely Sri Lankan vibe but modern, minimalist interior! It has big open common areas, balconies and a small cafe so that you can always find a spot to chill! Socialising has always been at the heart of Spindrift Weligama – you can find our daily activity calendar in reception! There is always something going on and always likeminded travellers to meet! See you soon!

Spindrift Madiha - Drone

Spindrift Madiha is a tropical oasis; hidden away under the palm trees but right in the centre of Madiha’s surf, beaches, cafes and nightlife! The hostel is set in a modern building with a boutique feel and equipped with a long beautiful pool and garden, a shady yoga shala and a large open rooftop restaurant. Try our delicious menu or drop by for our weekly events – think poolside movie nights or live music under the stars. We have everything you need to lay down your bags for a while and experience everything this little laidback village has to offer. Catch you poolside soon!
