Drifters Narigama Hikkaduwa Sri Lanka Hotel Review

Drifters - in the Narigama part of Hikkaduwa - is close to all the Hikkaduwa clubs, close enough that you can crawl across the road after a good night/morning.

For breakfast, they give you gigantic slices of bread with parippu and pol sambol for breakfast and, even better food wise, is walking distance from the Roti Shop. Nothing like a parippu/pol sambol/paang and chocolate/banana roti breakfast!

What I liked about the place was that a) the owner treats locals the same way as he does foreigners b) they have these wooden beach beds with leather covered mattresses and coconut thatched roofs on top so brown people who aren't as sun-addicted as the white people who sun burn red can lie on the beach also.

Drifters is clean, cheap and basic. So there's no point really waxing poetic about it: rather, I'll show you some pictures of the rooms, surroundings and bathrooms.
