    I had an amazing stay there.. the staff is super friendly and the food is great. It's definitely a well recommended place for anyone may it be for an individual stay, with family or friends. They even maintain their cleanliness up to a really good standard. I never found my self bored there, because there were so many things just around the corner, from nine arches, Ella rock and many others not being too long of a walk away. There's definitely value for money. Loved it all .

    eally enjoyed my stay at this welcoming and peaceful place. The atmosphere is very relaxing, and there are some unusual and welcome touches, like free coffee all day. Internet service is also very good, and the staff welcoming and helpful. Very tasty food , clean rooms and washrooms.Just 10 minutes walk from Kithaella train station. I would definitely visit this place again.

    The place is remote, but the host will get you with his Jeep everywhere for a very good price. Tuktuk and scooter are also available for rent. The host did everything to make our stay the most enjoyable experience: he gave us very good travel tips, accompanied us at 5am to the hike route so we do not get lost, and gave me a ride to the other town so I could catch the bus. The house, surroudings and bathroom are excellent. Also, the food cooked in the hostel was was very good and cheap. Recommend

    Don't be fooled by the location- it's actually very easy to get to Ella town from here via Kitha Ella station or by walking along the train tracks. It was an amazing experience, so relaxing and the staff are very friendly- nothing is too big of a trouble for them. It's in a colonial building with lots of character and at the start of the trail head to Ella Rock, enabling a very quick climb for sunrise. I couldn't recommend this hostel enough.

    Great place, loads of things to do. Good breakfast provided. Manager is amazing, happy to drop you off for a small fee, much more reliable and cheaper than a tuk tuk. Very comfy, warm showers, extra blanket provided as needed.

    The hostel as it says is amidst the hill and is very approachable from kithal ella station but if you are going to take bus on your way back from ella then this place is far from centre and you will have to bear the tuk tuk cost (though pickup from railway station or bus stop is free, if needed). The staff is courteous and helpful. Would definitely recommend if commute from city centre is not a hassle for you :)
