Stayed here for 2 nights in suite. Room was very clean, with AC and fridge, good wi-fi. Just 2 minutes walk to the beach. Sometimes it was very loud because of railways near the hotel, but luckily they were no often. My wife and I really enjoyed this place, and we will stay here again in april

We had booked 2 rooms for 2 nights but on arrival we were told only 1 room was available. But without a hesitation they were able to clear a room for us. The standard rooms were comfortable with hot water and a fast fan. The suite room had a large 4 poster bed and its own balcony. There was a... More

Really central location, right on the main road (quite a lot of traffic early in the morning), 500m to the main train station and a couple minutes walk to the beach. Rooms are big and have good and clean bathroom Restaurants and small shops are just around the corner Good value for money

Stayed here 2 weekends ago! We upgraded our room to an air con room which was £18 a night (3,500 rupees, which is quite expensive for Sri Lankan price). Got to our room and didn't think it was worth the price as it was quite small and basic and the air con might as well not have been on because... More

Brilliant location in heart of Hikka. Clean hostel with spacious rooms & en suite bathrooms. Our biggest problem was the fact there are no mosquito nets. Within a few hours all 8 of us had been bitten. We paid for a/c but did not realise it was 500 rupees per night, this caused discrepancy when we were checking out. We... More

Thanks for your review. I accept there are no mosquito nets but on 1st and 2nd floors no mosquitoes. But if some guests need we supply mosquito coils or liquid that you can lit with electricity. If you used air condition we have to charge these period difference USD 4 (Rs.500/-) I want to inform you that the ladies stayed... More

Staying here in September 2015. The place is located along Galle Road and it literally a walking distance to restaurants, shops and most importantly, the Hikkaduwa Beach. The people here are really nice. The room is being cleaned everyday. The room is big enough for two people. Manuel

Excellent location with bars, restaurants, beaches & coral reef and forex in close walking distance. Calm, Clean and safe place with CCTVs on corridors. Excellent sleep quality because of quietness. Provision of good full-service laundry. White ceiling lights in room was bothersome, so had to use the lampshade; out of the four lampshades, only one was functioning.
