Nice quiet place not far from kandy, last hill is a killer but tuk tuk is cheap like 250 rupees from town. Owner and staff are nice so if ur after a quiet place away from traffic then here is perfect ... Not a party hostel but dunno if kandy is like that anywhere even SL 4 that matter Only issue is school next door is loud as at 7 am, but I was awake by then... Buddhist prays wake you anyway
Herbert, the owner, is a perfect guide. We asked him for taking us around on a trip from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya for one whole day. He showed us everything, stopped whereever we wanted to and gave us enough space and time on our own. Definitely worth the money! Thank you!
The smell in our room no. 7 was very bad. Moldy and moist. In the first moment, when standing in the door with fresh air blowing into the room I didn't realize, but at night with doors closed it was really bad.. In the morning the T shirt I slept in smelled moldy and moist. It is also very loud due to the busy road next to the inn. For me it was not a place to relax.
The location of the hostel is wonderful, very closed-by to the Temple of the Tooth and also near to a bar if you like going out for a beer. Staff was so kind with us, breakfast was astnishing: Srilankan eggs, fruits and coffee. The value for the money you pay is very good. I would definitely recommend this place and come back again!

Very basic room with a dirty bathroom. Breakfast was better than expected. Staff were not very helpful.
