After travelling in Sri Lanka for 3,5 week we were very happy to find this place. There are not many hostels in Sri Lanka, just guest houses and home stay. We stayed in the dorm and it was perfect. Very clean, nice beds, AC og big lockers. The owner is very friendly and will give you tips if you need... More

Good location. Spacey rooms. Friendly manager. Great prices. Breakfast: eggs on toast. Would definitely recommend this guesthouse to light travellers, but at this time it is under construction untill medio February. At 7:00 am the building starts.

I spend two days here, after I arrived and before I left Sri Lanka. The Hotel offerst two dorms that are clean and airconditioned for a very fair price. The owner is really nice and very helpful. i definitely recommend it as a low budget place to stay for backpackers!
