        Good for solo travellers or groups. Big house and rooms. Lovely staff. Tuktuk to city center or train 200. Everything works fine, but the beds are a bit too small and uncomfortable. Good value for the money

        Hi! I'm planning on visiting Sri Lanka in late January. My flight will arrive late 9pm. Is it possible for you to arrange transport to your hostel? How much will it be? Regards, Gustav

        Hello Gustav I guess your flight will land in Colombo by 9pm. So you will be out of the airport by 10pm. Colombo to Kandy may take upto 4 hours by road. I suggest you stay the night in Colombo:)
