This was the best hostel we stayed in sri lanka! we had to hagle a little to get a good price but once we settled in it was so great. The service of the staff is so great: they guided us how to walk to ella's rock and gave us a map that we used. also they organised for us... More

Ella is basically a very touristic "city" with 1 main street. Most of the accommodation available is located in or near that street. This guest house has views to the Rock. Rooms are really basic. They are big but they have no wardrobes. They are not very clean and they don´t make the room if you are staying more than... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in the separate rooms (2 available) off to the side. As with literally everywhere in Ella (which is experiencing a tourist accommodation boom) there were some building works happening nearby, but nothing worth complaining about as it didn't bother us when it came to sleeping as it was only daylight hours. The owner was... More

This little hotel has one of the best locations in Ella, just next to the main road. It is very relaxing and peaceful to sit on the balcony in front of the room and drink a cup of tea while looking at the beautiful view. The service is fine

This is a nice place in the centre of Ella and had a nice view on Ella Rock. We chose for this place because of the excellent mattresses. The room is quit spacious and clean. The bathroom is a bit outdated. We got a b/b for 2700 rp. The breakfast was nothing special though, but not bad either. I experienced... More

Cheap guest house but a bit on the dirty side. The room I had also smelt a bit of damp but considering the amount of rain Ella gets it's not surprising. The place is in a good location and the terrace (and 4 of the rooms) have a spectacular view of Ella Rock. Would stay here again but not in... More

The best view of the Rock and the valley in Ella. Add to that the Scottish Tea Planter ambience of the historical place. Add to that the great location of a few steps to restaurants and shopping in Ella. Add to that a computer and fast internet connection available at all hours in the lobby. Add to that a wonderful...

This is one of the best place I've been in Sri Lanka, you shall find extra clean spacious room, but more than that a real Family warm place, where Amith, Mango and their parents are offering the best care of their guest. And to make your stay even nicer don't miss the local curry, certainly top range in Sri Lanka.... More
