    My only complaint would be the rooms can get very warm at night. Could use a couple more fans by the beds.

    Good location close to bus stop, stores, and the rock cave temple. Fun atmosphere and super easy to meet other travelers. Definitely a welcoming 'home base' in Dambulla. Thanks y'all!

    Staff are really friendly and helpful when booking trips and going in to town. Good location as only 15/20 minute walk into town and 30 minutes to bus stop. Stayed in the 6 bed on the first night, and upgraded to the 4 bed for the second as the 6 bed is really hot from just a ceiling fan, whereas have personal fans in 4 bed.

    Nice hostel in walking distance of the cave temples. Dambulla itself isn't the nicest of towns but this hostel makes up for it. Curries ordered in, cold Lions in the fridge and a helpful host to help arrange morning hikes to Pidurangala/Sigiriya and beyond. Only downside was how warm the dorm rooms get, bag a bottom bunk if you can

    Beds are comfortable with fans and mosquito nets, not far from the cave temple or sigiriya rocks and close to the town and bus stops. Good facilities and a nice atmosphere.

    Not the cleanest hostel ever. Probably the worst we have stayed in so far, however was still an enjoyable stay. There’s a volleyball net and table tennis which was a lot of fun. We met a good group of people there which made it all great. Breakfast isn’t worth spending the money on, get nicer and cheaper food not far in the town. Would stay again but think they should invest in better fans and cleaners.

    I am not sure why there are such high reviews on the place. It did not seem anything like described. It was not very clean (not very sure if the sheets were new on my bed) a key for the door to the room that had to be left in as we didn’t each have one. Staff were creepy if I am perfectly honest and overbearing. They were also disorganised and seemed to have no idea I was coming . I have stayed in many bad hostels but this takes the cake bad and no fun
