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!
