Decent facilities a little while out of town”
We didn't stay and party at the hostel as we had an early trip when we left but heard the vibe was great. Facilities were ok and the staff were helpful and friendly, always looking out for travellers interests. I'd probably stay here again!

Not a bad spot”
Nice staff, located a little ways from kandy, about 30 minute walk into town, about the same from the train station, which is okay for a short stay I guess. fairly helpful staff and good facilities, nice roof top common area. Mediocre value

City hostels .. a good chain on hostels”
Simplicity of staff and hostel, cleaniness,ease of doing business
My stay at Kandy City hostel was good. I changed my date of arrival just over a phone call and without any hassle. Beds and Bathrooms were clean. On the day of arrival the hostel manager organized a promotional BBQ party which was awesome. The overall environment of the hostel was peaceful and quiet. The hostel was slightly pricy though.

A bed in Kandy”
great place to meet people
The hostel location can be tricky to find, it's located up a long narrow and winding road, which I didn't feel safe walking after dark. The hostel doesn't have clear signage, which the manager explained was a security feature, though other area hotels/guesthouses are clearly marked. The location is a 25 min walk from the temple of the tooth or other Kandy area attractions, or a 200-300 rupees tuk tuk or 13 rupee bus ride. The housekeeper was very hard working and tried to keep everything clean and tidy. The manager was new to the area and could only provide basic information from tour guides rather then local experience.

Good Clean Hostel”
Very Clean, Knowledgable Manager, Good Place To Meet People
I really enjoyed staying here, We meet some great people who we met up with later in our trip. The hostel itself is clean and has a pretty cool design. A TV and films would be good to improve but overall I recommend staying here

Great backpacker hostel”
Social, clean, great staff
Very friendly, helpful staff in a nice open hostel makes a nice environment to talk to other travelers. It's mostly cold showers which is fine if the weathers hot.

Good value, fun stay”
Value, friendly staff, location
I really enjoyed my stay here, largely due to the friendly staff who made me feel at home. Location is a short walk or cheap tuktuk to Kandy Lake. Rooms are clean--no ac but each bunk has a personal fan which was sufficient.
