Stayed here for just one night and found the place quite average. Nothing luxurious, but nothing to complain about. It has all the essentials to make for a comfortable holiday. It's got a great location being situated just a minute walk to Hikkaduwa beach. The rooms are clean and have air conditioning. The service is also good. They don't go... More

We payed over 9000rps. And was the lowest price the maneger said he could give. A business down the streets would have done it for 7000 they said. And the driver was 30 mins late!! pretty frustrating when you need to catch a flight. Further more. Ok hotel. Good breakfast. Nearby beach is bad.

Our group of six spended 6 nights in YKD Tourist rest. Everything was ok, good airconditioning and clean rooms. Take a suite room, it has more fresh air and its upstair, not so much different between prices. Water pressure in the shower was poor. Hot and cold water in different showers. Owner Tilak arranged us an airport transfer and everything... More

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.
