The hostel felt dirty and the 2 bathrooms were pretty disgusting. The floor by my bed was filthy with old tissues and plasters left. At least 2 beds in the dorm had broken locks under the beds so nowhere secure to store my belongings. The street noise is difficult to sleep through and the fact you walk through one dorm to reach the other doesn't bode well for a decent sleep. On the plus side, the location is excellent and the hostel staff are very helpful.

As a solo female traveller I struggled to wander anywhere locally without being followed. The hostel is very close to the beach over the rail track. The hostel has beautiful gardens to sit around in which is definitely by far the best feature! There was no mosquito net in the room, it smelled a little damp and air conditioning costs extra which was only apparent after I'd used it! Pricey too! I was disappointed at the lack of information available from the hostel for touring Sri Lanka!

Additional charges at the end of my stay for the use of a/c were quite a surprise and not made apparent when I checked in. It would be helpful if there was more information available about onward travel, trips and local places to visit. The gardens are beautiful and a peaceful place to sit. The local area seems to have very little happening and as a solo female traveller I found I had to repeatedly shrug off the unwanted attention of some males when I walked around the local area.

This is a brilliant hostel. The location is unbeatable, it is super clean and the staff are extremely helpful and welcoming. The hostel staff organise activities each night which really helps if you are looking to meet people. Breakfast is prepared freshly each morning and even served to you at your table. I had a fantastic new year here as a solo traveller. Thank you!

A great hostel but often it's full and so alternative accommodation is provided. This needs to be made clear at the time of booking rather than when you arrive at the hostel!

A very nice hostel and the owners are very welcoming and helpful. The location is unbeatable and I guess that's why the price is so high!

The hostel is a bit far out but the shuttle helps overcome that and I guess that's why the price is so good! The views from the hostel are excellent! It's great to have a pool to sit around. The bathrooms could be cleaned more regularly and lockers would be helpful! The staff were really helpful especially getting bus tickets etc!

This is a great hostel. One recommendation would be to leave the air conditioning on longer considering the heat in SIngapore. It is only switched on in the evening and then promptly turned off around 9am.

In 8 months of travelling this is one of the best hostels I've stayed in. I'd highly recommend it. Super clean and pods are really spacious giving you that much wanted privacy when you feel like it!

Some excellent staff who were really helpful! Rubbish WiFi! Need more showers as too often I had to wait as only 3 per floor. Kitchen needed cleaning more often. Lockers would be helpful.
