Clean and comfortable and good value
Room size, location, breakfast
The hotel is small (8 rooms), quite new and located just across the road from the beach and 2km from the station. My room was a good size with aircon and separate bathroom. The staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was very good. The hotel is on the busy main road but the rooms are at the back, so there's little traffic noise. Plenty of restaurants and bars nearby if you want pizza or burgers but finding good, authentic Sri Lankan food in this surfing/partying town is a challenge.

Good location, friendly staff, clean room
Cleanliness, customer service, nice bathroom
Great stay. Nice room and new bathroom with hot water. I had AC in the room but I didn't need it. Breakfast was very good with eggs, tea/coffee, unlimited toast, and fruit. Staff were very friendly. Wifi was fast in the reception/restaurant area but slow in the room depending where your room is. There are nice chairs to relax on in front if your room. Very bright rooms with big windows. Room is very quiet and away from the busy road. I had paid less at another hotel in Hikkaduwa but you get why you pay for. I would recommend this hotel.

Centrally located, clean, budget hotel.
Clean, nice simple breakfast, close to beach.
Tandem guesthouse sure does live up to its reviews; simple budget room yet clean and comfortable. The guesthouse is only 30 seconds walk from Hikkaduwa beach. It's centrally located, close to nightlife spots and local restaurants, as well as easy access to tuk-tuks and public bus. The owner and staff were friendly and helpful, as you would expect almost anywhere in Sri Lanka. Breakfast is made fresh at the time you're seated. I couldn't ask for more the price I paid. Highly recommended for budget travelers.

Clean, friendly, very helpful, lovely people
Cheap price for very clean and chilled out room and very close to beach & restaurants.
The Tandem Guesthouse was a very nice place to stay. The staff were very friendly and ever so helpful. The rooms were spacious and very clean, great bathroom, have air con. The only downside was the shower pressure.
