“Piece of Sri Lanka”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I loved my time in Mirissa and at Our World- it was my 'home' for five days and I did not want to leave. It was great being able to stay in the basic guesthouse in the bush but also visit the shop and beach bungalows during the day.
Everyone was so friendly and helpful.
Thank you again.

Room Tip: Rooms by the sea are very basic with external shower and bathroom but with the bonus of being right...

Very nice people, special place. You get the feeling that the people running the place really care and are not there only for the money. We forgot to pay them one of the times we had coconuts there and they did not say anything. When we returned a half hour later they smiled and said they knew we would come back to pay... You can also see the sea level reached in the Tsunami. Bottom line - when in Mirissa beach drop by them and check them out.

I spent 2012 news year's at my world in a lodge in front of the beach. Althought its quite simple, the price is tottally worth of it. The place is managed by a family that makes you feel like you are part of it. Very nice, loving and trusthfull people. Absolutly reccomended for backpacers on a low budget travelling around Sri Lanka!

I had the pleasure of staying at Our world for two weeks in August 2013. Great value, great simple yet comfortable rooms. Staff was a lovely family that truly care about their guests. If you are looking for a comfortable, clean and affordable place to stay when in Mirissa Beach, then look no further.

Our trip in Sri lanka was really nice thanks to Jagath and his family.
"Our world" is more than just a hotel on the beautiful beach of Mirissa, It was such a great human experience.
King coconuts to drink in the morning, wonderful sunset to see, excellent food to eat from their kitchen...
This is the cheapest place to stay and enjoy in Mirissa.
I would recommend that place to every people who travel in sri lanka.
If you like to stay on the beach or in the back side (more quiet), if you want to meet great people, go there!
Eco friendly, cool and calm, Our world is the best place to stay in Mirissa.
Thanks again to Jagath and family.

Room Tip: The jungle side is more quiet and the beach side is easier to meet people.

I have a great experience during my stay with Our World in late September. Eco-friendly accommodations in Sri Lanka are still uncommon and our World is one of such simple places that make people feel home. The family, who run both guest houses and a grocery store, are extremely friendly and offer excellent service and food.

I also have special thanks to the manager, Jagath, for sending my blackberry forgotten on the dining table to Galle in person, which means tremendous to me.

Look forward to revisiting Sri Lanka in some time and stay in the particularly charming beach rooms.

Im sorry to say recently we change our email address due to some one hacked. The Our World Guest houses are a friendly, family owned, secure environment in Mirissa, our aim is to delight our visitors. We have 8 rooms in all, 4 inland and 4 beach front. Inland, we have four double rooms with shower, fan and of course mosquito nets, also Internet WiFi is available. The Our World Guesthouse is two minutes away from the beach in the jungle, beside a small river. There is also a little shop which belongs to our family on the way to the beach. You can get all your daily needs there, but even in our house we run our own restaurant as well.! By request we can arrange whale watching trips, order you a `Tuk-Tuk` or rent push bikes. To get to Our World Guest house land side, first, you come to Mirissa and find the Udupila bridge. Turn towards the land near the little rotte shop and come along the little canal. After 20 metres at the fork you will see on the left hand side our sign board or you can inquire about us from the our family shop.

The beach front hostel is called, [Our World Backpackers Eco Friendly Home and is situated beside the shop. " As we are not giving a commision to any one. Youmust tell the driver clearly that you want to come to us. No commission means cheaper room for you. We are giving very reasonable rates to backpackers who are visiting us. We are running a little library in both places, thanks to the visiters giving their additional books, so any one can exchange their finished books. But they are not for sale. Refill-relief- repeat we maintain a "" filtered water bottle refilling station"' at the beach side place to minimise a usage of plastic.
