We stayed for one night at low season. The room was basic but comfortable and clean. Our room was at the back of the property and you pass through the kitchen area to access the room. This was a little noisy but the kitchen closed around 10.30pm and it quietened considerably. Good hot shower and friendly staff. There is a...

This place is ideally located in the middle of town. It tries to be a funky backpacker destination but does cater for couples and families. The rooms are just OK but the big problem is that the music (loud) plays till about 11pm. If you are wanting an early night (or have kids) eat here but don't stay. The rooms...

They are conveniently located right on the main road with a quaint little cafe, kottu roti stand, restaurant, and souvenir shop in front. They were good with keeping our rucksacks as we went trekking, and booking a car to our next destination. Very helpful people! The rooms were a good value for money. Clean and comfortable. Hot shower available. I...

The room we had was at the ground floor and the access was either through the kitchen or the parking lot. The furniture was old and cleanliness doubtful. The mattress was obviously not clean and so were the bed sheets, unfortunately. Only one light bulb was functional and the ceiling fan looked as if someone had plucked it out. Breakfast...
