Room only had one fan for the 6 person dorm so was quite hot at night. Otherwise was a really nice hostel, dambulla is well situated for climbing sigiriya as only half an hour bus ride.

Only one fan in the room made it really hard to sleep. Mosquito nets provided were good. Easy walk into the town.

Decent location to explore nearby caves, Sigiryia (by bus) and Polonnaruru (by bus). 15 minute walk to town centre. Small breakfast was additional $2 for budget room - would recommend Bentotha in town. Room was a bit hot at night but included mosquito net. Could do with some more plug sockets for when room is full and only 4 lockers for a 6 man room. Good social areas indoors and outside. Free tea was good and tourist information books/posters ideal. Staff lovely.

A fun hostel with a very helpful staff. Facilities are good although could have been a little cleaner. Breakfast included like the other city hostels in Kandy and Colombo. Definitely stay here while in Dambulla!

I had a great time in this hostel. Anthony, the manager, was a great guy; helpful, friendly and sociable. Made a good circle of friends at this hostel for the start of my Sri Lanka tour. The location is perfect to tour the cultural triangle. Beds were comfortable with good air con for the humid area. I found out however that in hindsight the hostelworld price was more expensive than other sites. Also the facilities could do with an extension: two shower/toilet cubicles weren't sufficent.
