I spent three nights to Chandi Gaya Beach Guesthouse. I was already a bit disappointed by the many hostels in sri lanka. What I found in Chandi Gaya Beach Guesthouse, was the long missed Hostel life and excellent service. I was there during the second week of may (off season), so almost all shops and restaurants were closed. But I... More

I would stay here again. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, clean sheets, a mosquito net, the bathroom was clean, the staff were very helpful and friendly. We stayed in room 12 which was across the road from the beach. It is also very close, walking distance (10 minutes)to the town. Or take a tuk tuk. We can also... More

Went to Gayana in a desperate evening search, after being let down by another overbooked property in Tangalle. On the recommendation of my tuk tuk driver, I met the hotel manager and bartered for the only room they had left. Paid and went up to find the most shockingly filthy hotel room I've ever seen. Only had a single lamp,... More

My partner & I stayed for 3 nights. We paid 3500lkr for a room with AC and sea view. Great value for what it was! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Wifi wasn't great though. We didn't really eat at the hotel- Tangalle town is just a 10 minute stroll away & there are amazing cheap, local places to eat.... More

I stayed one night here with a friend. We got non A/C room for reasonable price. Their service was excellent. I can be happy as a Sri Lankan traveler about this hotel. Food is average. It is faced to the beach. Room was good. I can recommend this place for someone looking for a good place for reasonable price. Then... More

Perfect place close to town center and with very nice rooms, excellent staff and really good price. Sea side cost more and offer the (quite loud) sound of waves. It's not possible to swim because of the super strong waves and currents but there are many nice places to hang out on further down the beach (not on this property... More

everything is clean, spacious and nice. You will have everything you need, evan hot water - which is not available in general in Tangalle. BUT it is old fashioned. The hotel itself is not beautiful, but very old fashioned. But you face the beach, and - as others wrote - the boys that work there are very, very nice. We... More
