Jarrod from Australia
Couple
Deluxe Double Room A/c
Stayed 3 nights in July 2017
Fantastic place to stay, great location”
The place has a very rustic feel, but the room was very comfortable with a nice view from the balcony. The staff were excellent and took care of anything that was needed with an incredibly relaxed attitude. The food was great at their restaurant and the drinks were very reasonably priced. The location is superb - right in the middle of the stretch of beach. If you are going to stay in Unawatuna, highly recommend the Pink Elephant.

Double booked on our first night”
We were double booked on our first night and even though we booked first we were made to find another place to stay. The owner refunded our first night and shouted us dinner on our second night to make up for the double booking, as we were staying on New Year's Day for our first night we lost out on a lot of the hotels vibe as there wasn't many people around on the second night. Good place with tastey food but not sure if it would be worth another visit due to the hassle caused from the double booking.

Not so good”
The bathroom was dirty, no hot watershower, no internet in the inner room. The price is a little high refer to the condition. I bought the most expensive water in this hostel (150Rs), normally, only 70Rs for 1.5L.

Loud and dirty”
The place is close to the beach and not that expensive, but this is all about this place on a positive side. The music will play until 2 am, so get ready for this. There is no water at the morning until 3 pm. The room itself is pretty basic and require some cleaning and renovation.

Rude owner”
Location. Large room. Ok good.
Before we even got there, I received a very rude email in response to asking how to get to pink elephant from the bus stop. 'Just get a tuk tuk. I'm busy'. When we asked for towels and some soap. He then proceeded to tell us how he'd had a big night with 'all the drink, smoke'. Room was full of ants and there is no hot water. They then then turn all water off 9-3pm and blame it on the government which is utter rubbish. Nowhere else does this. No mosquito net and the room isn't sealed so we got eaten alive. Shame. This place could be good but the owner is an idiot and does not look after his guess. Not worth the rudeness or hassle.
