I have visited Ella many times and at night a lot of places shut early and tuk tuk drivers are scarce. So if you happen to have visited cafe chill for a night of cocktails and football madness this is a good base to stay easy to walk to and safe in the dark not off the beaten track. My... More

Stayed here in April 2014. Tacit, the owner, was very hospitable and friendly. He is a wealth of info on the local area. Decent sized room and shower, though it is a little basic. We negotiated on a price that included breakfast, but we were staying put of season. The day we left we took an early train and that... More

Normally i look for places that are a little more upscale, however, with not overly high expectations, this place will aim to please. If you are in any way picky, do not choose the top rooms, they are not worth more than 2000 rupees and the owners want more. The lower rooms, which are larger and newer are worth the... More

*** I am a solo traveler with small budget (Rs.1000 - 2000 / night). Please kindly note my review may not be suitable for couple / family travelers. *** I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights. I guess quality of this hostel is pretty average. Not a super excellent place, but I am satisfied with what I paid for.... More

Arrived tired after long bus journey, found this place. We have a room at the front of the building. View not great but it is perfect after a night out in the village, beats walking up unlit hill paths. Owner and staff are very friendly and cant do enough for you. Room basic but lashings of hot water in shower.

Our driver dropped us of here and we checked out the reviews on here. Many of them were pretty ok and since we are not posh luxury boys & girls we thought we can easily stay. The driver even made a special price for us. We went in the room and on a first inspection it was fine. It looked... More

Two good things: One, The owner seems to be a decent man, who can help you if e.g. you need a taxi. Two, the guesthouse is located nearby shops and restaurants in Ella. The bad things: The room was dark, humid, not clean and the bathroom was actually very dirty, with e.g. (pubic?) hair on the shelf beneath the mirror,... More

We extended our stay as we liked this place so much. The guest inn is located down the hill of main street and just on the corner, after the left turn to Little Adam's Peak. It is about a 10 minute walk from the train station but you can organise with the owner to come and pick you up. The... More

Located up hill on the main road, you can easily hike to mini adam's peak, walk 15 minutes to the train station, less than 5 minutes from the bus stop or just a few minutes to the bars, cafes, etc on the main road. As stated by other people, the hotel staff were helpful but my room did face the... More
