The rooms were clean and spacious and good value for money. It's walking distance from the centre of Ella town (the town is quite small). Our host was very accommodating and allowed us to use one of the rooms to clean up after checkout time since we went on a hike in the morning and arrived late. Breakfast was also... More

What can I say - we extended our stay once and tried to a second time but the guesthouse was all booked up. First of all, Malit (owner/manager) and his family (mom) are WONDERFUL! In five months of travelling throughout Asia they are some of the most welcoming, kind, helpful guesthouse owners we've met. Any questions you have can be... More

This is a fantastic cheap guest house, with good rooms. The owner was very helpful and would alway stop to offer any advise when we were reading through our guide book. The location to the train station is very good. Our bus dropped us off at the other end of town, but it was still within walking distance. The big... More

This is a basic guesthouse with ensuite rooms and hot water. The location is great, in a side street off of the main town. A few steps to the Main Street and short walk to the station. The owner is super friendly and gave us advice on things to do and also our onward trip. A nice Sri Lankan breakfast... More

Very cosy place, just 100 meters of the noise of Main Street. Clean rooms with kettle and other appliances for an unbeatable price. They even put in an extra bed for us at no extra charge - and our kids ate breakfast again at no extra charge. Soooo nice folks running the place! Stay! You won't regret it!
