    Lil overpriced but I love it nevertheless”

    I stayed for one night in the private room which located on the highest level of the building (3rd floor, I think). I didn't know that they have dorms. As I was only traveling alone, I would've opted for dormitory instead as the price is way cheaper. I like the location, it is very near the fort, bus station and even the railway station. The ambience and decoration of the entire place is very nice, I love them. The only downside is when the place is fully booked, there is no place for people to sit for breakfast (imagine if we all come down at the same time).

    Good choice for a hostel ”

    Great location right in front of the fort, only complaint is that the doors are pretty thin so you can hear your neighbors if they are loud (as ours were). Also, the plumbing is not the best. But you can't ask for a better location if you're there to see the fort - it's best enjoyed at sunset.

    Our double room with balcony was comfortable for an older restored building. Great ambiance and location but lacked some amenities such as refrigerator, better mattress or adequate lighting that should be included considering the price. Breakfast was only fair. No coffee, juice or choices. Staff was friendly.

    Comfortable room”

    We stayed in a private double room with AC. The bed was really comfortable and the Air-con and ceiling fan kept the room cool. There was no TV in our room or WiFi connection. You had to sit down in the reception area for these, which was okay as they have lots of seating down there. Also the hot water tank in the room is small so showering took longer as the second person had to wait for the heater to do its job. We only stayed two nights so this was all fine. The staff were nice and the simple breakfast (eggs, toast, jam and tea) good. The location is very good.

    We booked a private room in this hostel, The location is great, within easy walking distance to the sea, restaurants, cafes, and boutique shops. The staff were friendly and helpful, although ther was some confusion over which type of room we had booked, as they initially were going to put us in a dorm room when we had booked a private room. Overall a great stay, clean, quiet and a great loacation.

    Cheap and nice hostel in the fort. Good location, only 5mins walk to the seaside and there are many shops, cafe and restaurants nearby. Amazing staffs, they are so friendly and helpful. Comfortable and clean beds in the dorm room with sufficient space. That's amazing and it is one of the best hostels that I have ever stayed.

    Good by Local Budget Stds (But Many of Mosquitoes)”

    Good Mattresses & Reasonably Clean

    This is a good option by Sri Lanka budget standards as the mattresses were comfortable, it was reasonably clean, wi-fi usually worked ok and there is mosquito netting around the bed (probably a necessity in Galle or when there is an open floor plan as with the dorm areas). HOWEVER, the mosquitoes still managed to get in – probably due to the fact that the netting goes to the ground and they hide under the bed during the day or when the netting is open before someone checks in only to emerge at night when the netting is closed to start buzzing and biting. I believe the plugs all had built in adaptors – meaning you can use most types of plugs without a Sri Lanka adaptor. I did not eat breakfast here though (its either US$2 or 500 rupees, can’t remember) and there is no free tea/water etc…

    It’s located in the fort area, very quiet in the night. Bed and pillow are comfortable. Bathroom can be cleaner, flushing of toilet was not working. It’s good to stay for a night but it’s expensive for a hostel.

    Great place to stay in Galle with the family”

    We booked the apartment which turned out to be three stories high. It had all the amenities to cook inside which is very important with small kids. The breakfast is somewhat basic (egg, toast, fruit, tea) but enough to go until lunch. Good WiFi, A/C, fans in all rooms. The bath sink was a bit clogged but I believe it needed quite a quick and simple repair. Would definitely come again.

    The friendly staff make this a great place to stay - Pradeep is really helpful and always smiling. The three bed dorm was clean and bright with a nice balcony off it to sit on. You have to walk through the four bed dorm to get into the three bed dorm, so I'd definitely choose to be in the three bed, otherwise you're right by the door and have other people walking through your room at night. Bathrooms were basic, but there was hot water, which was a nice surprise!

    Lovely place in a perfect location, overpriced”

    The Pedlars Inn Hostel is great! Helpful staff, full kitchen, good wifi, excellent location right in the fort. The only issue is price but it's still one of the most affordable option in the fort, which is incredibly touristy and therefore generally expensive. I'd stay there again. Bonus points for having lots of plugs by the beds and full mosquito nets and good security.

    We stayed at the Pedlars inn for two nights while exploring Galle and the local area. The manager is the best we've come across, he arranged whale watching, cycle tours and have us advice on bus routes freely even arranging local prices so we didn't overpay! I can't recommend this place highly enough!!

    Lovely, welcoming hostel that has some finishing touches in regards to the furniture and decor. I loved my stay, it is in the relaxing fort that oozing charm and fits well with the boutique style of the fort. Yes it expensive for a hostel but not on price comparison with the fort. It offers breakfast buffet style as much toast with jam/butter or cereal as you can eat, they will cook you up two eggs (omelette/fried or scrambled), accompanied with fruit (watermelon or bananas); you can wash this down with tea and coffe included in the $2 price. I throroughky enjoyed my stay!
