In the heart of the city”
It's a bit deep inside an alley but it's a nice place with a working hot water and fast internet. But there are mosquitoes in the rooms despite being air-conditioned. You just need to spend a couple of minutes to get rid of them.

Simple and expensive”
Simple room. no sheets on the bed (obliged to ask for it....twice!) No View, except on garbages of the factory near by. Located at the end of a dark small alley. Bathroom is very small and no water debit so hard to properly shower. No wifi in our bedroom. For all of this, the price is very exagerated in comparision to other places in Sri Lanka but that seems to be the general case in Jaffna. However, the hotel is quite well located, at walking distance from main areas of interest of Jaffna and the staff is quite helpful.

A good place to stay in Jaffna”
Yals Town Inn is centrally located in Jaffna. From there we could walk to the market, the library, the fort and the port, and it was an easy three wheeler trip to restaurants, temples and other historic features in the town. We were impressed by the staff. The manager is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. He gave good advice about sightseeing and dining, and arranged good local transport during our stay. Breakfasts were good, the new chef cooked us a great dinner, and other staff were always friendly and helpful. We were pleased that we had selected Yals Town Inn as our place to stay in Jaffna.

I was lucky again in choosing this hotel.”
Everything was the way I liked it. Everyone involved with running the hotel was amazingly friendly and helpful. They looked after my well-being from the moment I walked in the door. Both managers very professional. Anyone will befriend them instantly. I instantly become a chatterbox when I meet people like Udari and Mr. Dhanapalan. They politely listened to me to the end. Thank you. Given the chance I will not look for any other hotel.

Good 6.5 Lesley, Scotland March 2016”
Central location within walking distance of the market and city centre sights. Staff were really helpful and arranged transport to the islands and beaches. Food was good with European breakfast and Sri Lankan curry in the evening. Room was disappointing with opaque window covering and no mosquito net. Lacked an area to sit out on either a balcony or roof terrace would have transformed our visit.

Worst place we stayed in Sri Lanka.”
There were mosquitos everywhere in the room. Our daughter killed at least 50 to 60 of them everyday. I booked the hotel for 4 nights and the wi-fi wasn't working at all. The manager was trying his best to make us comfortable, the staff were not trained to handle the cielnts' needs.

Comfortable stay with great staff.”
We loved our stay in Jaffna for 4 nights. Yale's is small simple hotel near the market and bus station and only about a give to ten minute Tuktuk to the railway. We had intended to eat in local restaurants, but the delicious meal we had at Yal's on our first night persuaded us to eat there every night. We were never disappointed with our decision. The best thing about the place however was the staff. Some were more outgoing than others but all of them were helpful and went about their work with a genuine desire to please all of their guests (even some we saw that looked quite hard to please). Not all speak very good English but with a bit of patience and good humour we always managed to understand each other. A special mention to the delightful Udari on the front desk whose welcoming smile was worth the trip alone. Well done to all at Yal's!

Friendly, helpful staff at a well run hotel”
1. The staff are the best thing at the hotel, always smiling, very friendly and extremely helpful. 2. Cleanliness of all areas of hotel 3. Location: very central in amongst city life
We stayed as a group and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff, in particular the owner were incredibly accommodating, going out of their way to help with purchasing train tickets, drivers and even helped us out on the beer run!!! The hotel is simple but was perfect for our needs, the rooms are immaculate with both aircon and a fan, and the beds are comfortable. The hotel is situated in the thick of It all in Jaffna on Stanley road, close to lots of banks. They are updating a few things currently, the wifi is mainly reception only currently, and the plan is for this to be available in all rooms, although I was able to use it in my room and the dining area also! The restaurant menu is being updated, but any requests will be considered and if possible the chef will meet your needs. We had delicious Sri Lankan curries one night of our stay, and as long as you give notice, a few hours before you want to dine in the evening, or the night before for breakfast, they should manage to meet your requirements. I very much recommend staying here and will do in future visits to Jaffna. I have stayed in a bigger hotel on a trip earlier in the year, and much preferred Yals a Town Inn for its personable, friendly service and cleanliness! With limited choices currently in Jaffna, which perhaps has pushed up room pricing in this city, Yals is more reasonable and just as good, if not better!

It was a very pleasant stay. The staff are very friendly and the manager always available and helpful. I just had the breakfast there and it was good. Excellent location, 10 minutes walk to either the bus or train station, more or less. Room smallish and basic but comfortable and hot water shower and small TV. WiFi quite good, especially outside the room.

emplacement de l'hotel
Comme souvent,en réservant par Agoda,nous avons été logés dans la plus mauvaise chambre de l'hotel,un réduit sans vue coincé entre la réception et le garage de l'hotel.Bruit continuel jusque tard dans la nuit et très tôt le matin. Service et considération proches du néant;heure officielle du petit dej à 7H30;nous avons demandé une faveur pour 7H15;accord du prorio la veille,mais rien le matin."le petit déjeuner est servi à 8H".Qu'il a de la chance d'avoir peu de concurrence à Jaffna!

Stets um unser Wohl bemüht”
Das Yals Town Inn ist eine sehr zentral gelegene Budget-Unterkunft in Jaffna. Sowohl der Busbahnhof (200m) als auch der Bahnhof (20 Minuten) sind fußläufig erreichbar. Die Zimmer waren sauber und mit einer recht leisen aber effektiven Klimaanlage ausgestattet. Was aber diese Unterkunft insbesondere auszeichnet, ist der Service. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und hat versucht uns jeden Wunsch von den Augen abzulesen- sowohl beim leckeren srilankischen Frühstück als auch bei der Organisation von Fahrern und ähnlichem. Darüber hinaus wurden wir mit leckerem 5-Uhr-Tee überrascht und auch bei sehr früher Abreise servierte man uns noch vor 5 Uhr morgens einen Tee.
