Located just bordering the Yala National Park in a beautiful wilderness setting, with easy access to the less-crowded Katagamuwe entrance of Yala via the sacred city of Katharagama, this enjoyable, yet affordable Yala Accommodation option offers you a great deal in a Yala Safari. We have 2 air-conditioned rooms with 6 single beds each (3 bunk beds) and another 2 air-conditioned rooms with 8 single beds each (4 bunk beds) providing accommodation, for 28 safari explorers. Away from the main building, we have a separate individual air-conditioned cottage that offers single / double / triple or family accommodation. We offer unlimited free Wifi in the common areas. The spacious outdoor area of the Funky Leopard Safari Hostel has quite a few hangout / relaxing spots with hammocks, etc.
