Arrived around 6pm to find all other guest houses either full of over priced (e.g. 4000RS for shared bathroom). So, Lakshmi it was. The room was generally disgusting. The bedding was damp and smelled musty, bed was stained, mosquito net had holes in and didn't fit over the bed. Worst of all though was the bathroom. The wall and ceiling... More

We arrived quite late (after 10pm) due to a train delay. We were tired and just wanted to sleep so stayed here. However had it not been so late we would not have stayed. Very overpriced for the quality of room (2000rps) per night! Rooms were basic and pretty grim! Stains all over the mattress. Bathroom was pretty gross too.... More

The restaurant is expensive so I suggest you eat out. We had dry chicken fried rice- wasn't great. Also the breakfast is hugely overpriced. The rooms were fine for the budget traveller, we even had hot water in the morning. The staff were super friendly though and the laundry service is great.

Listed in the newest Lonely Planet as a budget option. I can't stand when hotels and guesthouses that are listed as budget options automatically start charging more, even though they keep things the exact same, or even worse! That seems to be the case here. They're cashing in on their listing in the Lonely Planet. This is why I try... More

We've been staying in hostels all over Sri Lanka for two months and this is the WORST one we've stayed in! The bathroom was so dirty that we were unable to shower, the beds had very mysterious stains on them and the staff were rude! 3 days before our arrival, we had to cancel one of the days of our...

Lakshmi is a good value for money place for modest backpackers. The rooms are small and the bathrooms are basic but all is clean. The stuff is nice and helpful, esp. Roomy, who was our guide and tuk tuk driver for 1 day. The terracce was great for the breakfasts as well as evenings - food is good, although Sharon... More

nice view on Kandy city and very quiet guest house in a peaceful area. Due to several hours of delay with our flight, the taxi driver coming from the guest house to pick us up doubled the price ! not nice...

The guesthouse is located on a hill, the view from the terrace is obstructed by giant water tanks. The room was rather gloomy, the attached bathroom wasn't very clean and could use some renovation. It cost 2000 Rs per night. Food was OK but pricey.
