    Staying in the cycling hostel was perfect for me, it is a very clean place, and it also was quiet. Near the railwaystation, but are not many trains coming, is also a bus stop so you can easily go by bus to Galle or Dellawella beach. There is also a nice food place and food shops around the corner. the chill out zones and corners, and the balcony are really nice.wifi is also working well. happy to have stayed with you!

    I was a little bit worried about booking this hostel as it was so cheap it seemed too good to be true, I was completely wrong. I was very comfortable and the place was super clean. Most of all the staff were great, always offering me cups of coffee and having a chat. They also went out of their way to give me a mosquitio plug. Literally meters from the train station but you rarely hear trains, 15 min walk to Unawatuna and a short bus/train journey to Galle - the train cost me 10rs 😄

    Recommend this place- we stayed in the 21 bed and it was no problem- wasn’t full and the staff make sure it’s clean and comfortable- there is lockers that are bigger enough for a massive bag pack and given lockers- it’s 30 min walk to Dalawella Beach which was no problem and the place is next to the train station so it’s really easy to find! The WiFi can be real strong but at times off- the owner will do all in his power to sort it - the other beds rooms have fans each and get breakfast - great!

    The 21 bed dorm I stayed in was surprisingly spacious, immaculate and clean. They have quite a strict laundry list of house policies and conditions so there isn't much going on atmosphere wise - ideal if you prefer the privacy and quiet. The bathroom facilities are excellent but the hot water was not running while I was there. I also think it's kind of dodgy you have to pay for a blanket though. Seems like it should be a hostel standard.

    Cool place, our massive 21 bed dorm only had two other people, so were very comfortable. Location is a decent walk from Unawatuna beach, which was a pain. Staff were great.

    Right next to the train station but few trains come through so it wasn't bothersome. You have to pay for a blanket. I would've rather seen that included in the price. It was empty while I was there but the owner is exceptionally sweet. No *good* restaurants nearby and the beach is a little bit of a hike but the local bus runs on the main road.

    Great value for money, staff were very helpful and even made me a cuppa when I arrived. Water pressure and temperature was not great, however this seems to be consistent with all hostels in Sri Lanka.

    A nice place super close to the railway station! Clean and modern but due to the concrete type of building a little cold. Unfortunately the beds were not comfortable at all. Just a thin mattress on a wooden panel. The staff was nice and also the bathroom very wenn maintained and clean.
