This place is ok if you want a cheap stay somewhere but the room we stayed in was absolutely filthy - The bathroom and room needs a good clean! The only good thing about this place was seeing a group of playful monkeys from the balcony and the family were friendly!

Stayed at the inland location and although it was budget price (1500) it was a bit grubby compared to other places we have stayed for the same price during low season. Friendly family and just a short walk to the beach but bathroom and room could have been cleaner, especially as there were plenty of places for litter critters to...

If you are at Mirissa Beach check out Our World. Have a fresh KingCoconut in the morning or lunch while looking at the beach from this place. Food: Best Kottu Roty here! in combination with fresh juice or Lassi. Try the Avocado Lassi. Love it. Friendly people, good food. We will be there soon again.

Good food and excellent service with smiley faces. The menu is short and simple. We ordered Kuttu Roti with vegetables and Roti with chocolate and banana. They served the food really quick. Price is lower than most places and the view of the ocean is priceless.

I would say this is the more humble place compared to all its neighbors. The men working here are really nice and we came back for the guacamole and casava chips multiple times :) also the passion fruit juice is really good. I really enjoyed our world

I stayed at the beach rooms located at the restaurant. The rooms are very simple, just a bed, mosquito net, drying rack and fan. They are a bit dingy looking and the bathroom isn't anything fancy. But you're staying literally right on the beach! I didn't even hang out in my room, just slept there and was at the beach...

We went there mid February 2016. There are two locations. The one on the beach is grubby and totally expensive for what it is (they asked us for 2300 for 3 people). You have to be quite brave to stay there (although the restaurant is real nice and cheap). The location inland (200m from the beach) is amazing. We paid...

The family who run this are lovely, and it really is on the beach. This place is not for everyone. It's not necessarily clean and you need your own toilet paper but at the price you shouldn't expect anything at all. I was going to stay for two nights but decided to move on as I had a short amount...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. It is situated at the sea side of the A2 road from Colombo, you will see 150km post and our little sigh boards hanging. 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.
