Value for money. Far from the city center. 15 mins tuktuk ride NOT walk.
It's a wrong advertisement to put 15 minutes walk to the city center. It is 15 minutes tuk tuk ride. It is impossible to go anywhere without tuk tuk. The road to the place is steep. The staffs are not professional, and not friendly. They requested 30 USD or 4000 LKR for 2 nights, while hostelworld says 3400 LKR left to pay. No water in the toilet during our last night. They gave us 2 bottle of water in exchange. The place is very humid and quite stinky. Please find another place.
Nice hostel, beautiful location but a bit far from the town. Clean rooms, nice breakfast.
The rooms were spacious and clean. The hotel has great restaurant in the top floor with open walls with excellent view over Kandy and cute monkeys climbing in the trees just next to it giving you good morning :) The owner owns also gemstone mines in Sri Lanka and will take you to his shop in Kandy where he plays interesting videos about Sri Lanka mining techniques and shows you jewels of their production (you can also buy some).
