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).


I've been in the bungalow and not directly in the main building. The walk up the hill to the hotel is really exhausting. But the view was amazing!!!! Hotelpool is great!


best location and view you can possibly have for that price. (we got the ensuite with view) Staff very attentive and friendly, delicious curry and the most beautiful terrace of all Kandy!! we will come back for sure

if you want dorms, never recommend. dirty, dark, too humid, expensive foods; everything is worst ever in my trip. too much overrated


It is very nice but not in the city centre. You actually need a car but I think it is very worthwhile. Very nice staff, service and breakfast.
