Great accommodation for the money!
Comfortable bed, walkable if wanted from the city center otherwise a short trip with tuk-tuk, clean rooms and bathroom although share with quite many others. And breakfast included, which makes it more practical and worth the price! The staff will also help you out regarding plans in Kandy, order taxi, help with directions and recommendations, etcetera.

First, if you love toast, the breakfast is nice. But I tired of every breakfast of toast, banana, and boiled eggs. Second, location is not good. About thirty minutes from train station on foot, climbing complicated and dangerous road. Finally, British owes this hostel, so workers, who workes for their own business except accepting guests,are lack of hospitality . They don't give us enough information. Espicially, one female worker like a school master is not friendly. Sometimes, we felt uncomfortable.

I started out being alone on the Balcony and within 40 min we were with 14! The lady who runs the hostel is great and the guy helping her and driving the tuktuk will give you a hand if needed! You can walk into the city if you're a walker but tuktuk is just as easy and cheap.

Good place to stay
Warm hospitality, Clean facility, but little far from town.
Here is good place to stay. Staffs are very friendly, and clean facilities. However you have to mind that the hostel is little far from town. Without backpack, it is walking distance (located in uphill).

The hostel is quite far from town.
Nothing really. There are better places to stay.
The staff were indifferent and we were charged 200 rupees to go 5 mins into town which is a huge rip off. I wouldn't recommend this place.

Nice backpacking experience
Location, Garden, Staff
Great stay. The hostel is located in one of the nicer areas in Kandy on the hills. There is a nice little garden at the back that makes you feel like you are living like a local (the hostel used to be a house). The access to fresh, clean mountain air is calming. Chandra, the manager, is very friendly, helpful and a good cook to boot! Only downside is that it is a 20 minute walk from the center and there is no bus (only tuk tuk service), but it wasn't a big issue in my case.
