Island Hostels has multiple properties situated in prime locations around our beautiful island paradise. Our debut boutique hostel is located in the beach suburb of Mount Lavinia. We at Island Hostels sought to differentiate ourselves by providing a unique product. By providing affordable accommodation, communal areas and a high quality service which focuses on attention to detail while maintaining our ethos of affordable, fun, hip and chic at the fraction of the price of a traditional hotel.

We aim to create unique social events on a daily/weekly basis. Example of such events will include bar crawls, city walking tours, bicycle tours, quiz nights, karaoke nights and comedy shows.
