The worst place I've ever stayed.”
We have stayed in over 50 hostels/guest houses in the last 4 months travelling Asia- all around the same price as this and it was by far the worst. We had a twin room- it was filthy, with food remnants on the floor mosquitoes smeared all over the walls and the mosquito nets smelled very bad. There is one shared bathroom for the whole place and it smells like a urinal. The staff were friendly but I would never reccomend this place they need to sort out the hygiene ASAP.

Cheap but bad location”
Good : Cheap prices Bad : It is quite far from the city center and very hard to go there because the hostel is on a hillside. It is a kind of hiking with a big backpack. Using a tuk tuk costs but a good choice

Cool and calm place”
Stayed two nights and it was ok. Breakfast was fine as well. It's a little bit out of town but you can have some nice walk that'll take about 30 minutes. Overall, would stay here again.

Perfect travellers hostel”
A little far from the city centre but otherwise perfect. The family who own and run the hostel are super friendly and helpful with offering (but not pushing) tours and transport, understanding the wants and needs of backpacking travellers. We had a twin room with a shared bathroom that was great value for money. With a little notice the family cook a very tasty and abundant Sri Lankan dinner that you can share around the table with other travellers. Overall, a great experience that we can highly recommend.

The best...”
The best facilities... Nearest bus stop is 10 min. walk away. Bus station and railway station are at 10 min. drive away... Facilities are of word class standards... Clean and neat environment. They don't even allow your footwear inside. 24 hrs check in and 24hrs check out. They provide kitchen if you like to cook on your own. I have kept my luggage there for two days after my one night booking for free and roamed around. Highly friendly non commercial owners, treated me like family... The best place to live in hazel free...

Acceptable”
La relación calidad precio, es la peor de todos. Esta en un sitio muy feo y mal comunicado. El agua del grifo salía de color marrón.
