Too far a location for the money spent and also very poor connectivity of transport ; Does n't look to be a safe place to trek along with poor lighting in the roads near the hostel if you are late in the night .


Great staff


Pretty far to walk from down town, but other than that, great. Maybe security could improve a little, lockers in the room and locks on the doors.


This hostel reached far below my expectations especially after staying at the associate one in Negombo. I did not mond about the location of the hostel however the bathrooms were filthy with no proper locks on the doors. The lady running the show couldn't care less about it's upkeep and was quite rude. In Negombo your breakfast ( toast eggs and vegetables) are made for you however at Kandy it's a 'do it yourself' with only toast. And you're paying the same price as Negombo. Disappointing...
