We tried to book to King Fern and had several strange telephone exchanges. In the first, my wife called, and was replied that there are no rooms available. She had a strange feeling about the call, so, due to the lack of other suitable hostels in town I tried to call again 5 min later. Then, miraculously, there was a... More

He'll also gladly help you with anything you need including information, tour booking etc. The place is fancy, beautiful, clean and safe and in a short walking distance to everywhere you need -...

The owner of this place is a fun and warm-hearted guy who took very good care of us when one of my friends was unwell and needed to go to the doctor. He drove... More

Very nicely decorated common area with a lot a wood and a fire place. Great atmosphere. Nice garden with water running through. Double rooms for 3000 or 4000 Rs including breakfast, or 5000 for a family room. Booking in advance is highly recommended. We enjoyed staying here. Our room was to reach through a trap in the ceiling (first time... More

Cozy, quiet and warm. The dining areas are in good shape, cozy and clean. Good food. Staff are friendly, accommodating, and helpful, even late at night. Room was very spacious, clean, fresh sheets, and with a good view of their man-made garden and forest-like trees with a stream. We even saw different types of birds on the trees. Wifi is... More

We stayed for three nights and we're really happy because it rained a lot in nureliya, and it was good to have a nice hotel to stay in. In the evening they lit a fireplace in the living room, which created a cosy atmosphere. They arranged a trip to Horton plains for us and we could leave our big luggage... More

Loved the big glass windows, beautiful view, can hear the stream running through it, warm fireplace. Very social place. The rooms were nice and comfortable, spotless, nice bathroom too. The beds are... More

With a great social area, good wifi, comfy HUGE beds and an insure restaurant with fire place, what is not to love! Varying rooms at different prices, they all looked good and everyone who stayed while we were there was happy to be the lucky ones that reserved a room. Make sure you book as we saw many people turned... More

Reading reviews on trip adviser I'm constantly amazed at how picky people are! This is a hostel for gods sake! The manager Lal is a super guy and very obliging. The staff were great and the location is spot on! A great place to stay.
