I think the staff was friendly and accommodating but this hostel needs to be renovated. The bathroom was not too clean and looked "overused". The dorm room was okay... Not perfect but thank God for the mosquito net. I like the chill area and the breakfast too. It's a bit far from the city centre and the restaurants but you... More

Really enjoyed my time at the hostel. It is very, very clean which is always a plus. The staff is extremely helpful and they have a tuktuk on site which is great. The prices on the tuktuk are cheaper than I have been able to bargain for outside the hostel. It saves a lot of energy. Nice home stay type... More

I stayed here in December 2013, it was a recommendation from its 'sister' hostel in Colombo. Its very close to the centre and you can walk into the town in around 20 minutes. The hostel is quite literally in the Tropics so it has very beautiful scenery. The price was very good and it is a large hostel in comparison... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Clean and nice. Great service! Breakfast was ok with toast, eggs and jam. Spacious rooms. Cheap laundryservice and not too far from city. About 200 rupees with tuktuk. Absolutely recommended for budget travellers.

We read several times, that there was overbooking in this hostel, but we also read a comment from the owner, that this had been improved. So we decided to book a room yesterday. Today when we arrived in the afternoon they didn't have a doubleroom anymore. So we told the staff to find a solution. First solution was to go... More

The rooms are clean and nice. Also offering very cheap private rooms. Staff takes care of the travellers and helps you finding your way. Also has a own Tuk-Tuk with a cheap and fair price. Breakfast is simple and good. Location is in a resident area so very quiet, only the animals in the nature may be loud.
