Called to make a reservation and agreed on a price. When i got there the lady was confused-they had forgotten about me only a day later. Had to switch rooms the two nights that i was there because of this. Found COCKROACHES in both rooms!!! BEWARE!

YKD is a very nice place and a good value for money, not overpriced like other places in the area. It is just a few meter from the beach but the best part is the welcoming. The owner is very friendly and it makes you feel take care of. He gave us suggestions about bars and restaurant in the area.... More

Exceptionally clean hotel run by a charming and welcoming family. It's a little far out of the main area, and as it's by the train station you can hear it a couple times a day/night Highly recommended, great value for money. Would definitely go back

We stayed here over New Year and had a brilliant time. The owner is so helpful, giving advice on the best bars and clubs in Hikkaduwa! I was travelling with 3 friends and the location was perfect for us. It is right opposite a beautiful beach and just a 100R tuktuk ride from the YKD was the main strip of... More

We spent the day here in 21th December 2014. Our main target was snorkeling & photography. This place is so close to all the restaurants & coral beach. We got a Non AC room for day use. Room & bathroom was very clean. That room had 2 single beds, big wall cupboard, chairs, towels, fan & cloth rack. My wife... More

Amiable family run business with a shop front on the main drag a few hundred metres south of Hikkaduwa station. We hadn't booked in advance, and in early November were able to negotiate a discount for two nights. The rooms were ok, not special, we aren't interested in AC, hot water isn't necessary either but I still enjoyed it! The... More

Clean peaceful guesthouse away from the busier and noisier part of hikkaduwa yet still in walking distance. The owners kept themselves to themselves but I would have felt comfortable to ask them if I had needed anything. We ended up staying an extra night as we felt very comfortable there.

The location is great! Service is excellent. The owners are very friendly. And due to the off peak season, I am the only one living in the hotel :) I would definitely stay in the same hotel if I were to be back in Hikkaduwa.

We stayed here for 1 night with a group of friends in Feb 2014. There were 5 of us in total so we had 3 rooms. We found the place very clean, welcoming and friendly. The rooms were well equipped, and it was so close to the beach. In the morning we were all provided with a very large breakfast,... More

We stayed here in March 2014 for 9 days. It`s a nice guesthouse with clean rooms, very close to the beach and to the restaurants and bars! You can also book some nice daytrips with the owner of the guesthouse, we did a one day trip going to the river lagoon, turtle sanctuary and moonstone mine! We had a great... More
