    Great budget hostel in the perfect location in Ella. Great views of the mountain ranges and Ella rock. Perfect for budget travelers. Worth the money.

    Great location, less than 5 min walk to the main cafes/restaurants. Nice, clean bedroom. Friendly staff. We know it’s quite a new place so would recommend better locks on the doors, better cleaning of the bathroom and better WiFi. Would stay again though!

    Owner really friendly, walk is uphill away from noisy area but not far. Showers were not warm and the double room had a lot of mould. Dorms were ok

    This could be a much better place than it is. It is just lacking a few things that are very simple to change. We stayed in a private room. Location wise it was great. And got views of the mountains while laying in bed. It was very nice. But they just need to get new curtains or at least wash them. They are not the best. Also paint the ceiling white again and get a mosquito net that fits the bed. The staff are lazy and quite strange. But harmless. Don’t get your cloths washed here.

    Staying in a dorm. Arrived, no one there. Called and was told he’d be there soon. An hour later called again, was asked to take money from another guest so she could check out and that he’d be back later. Told to just leave bags in the room and it was fine. No hot water, fan didn’t work, room stinks of mould, sheets very stained. Would not recommend. Cut our stay short and moved to another hostel.

    Don’t be fooled - this is not a new hostel. Rooms have damp in the ceilings, beds of poor quality and doors don’t shut properly meaning access for bugs etc is pretty easy. Wouldn’t stay here again despite low price and good location.

    We booked a private room at Ella pavilion for 2 nights, and ended up cancelling the second night to move to another hostel, because the mould was so bad! It was everywhere, shower, ceiling, walls and even in the curtains. Never seen a hostel in this state. The towels that were provided weren’t clean either. There was no communal area or restaurant, even though this is advertised. The owner was nice, and the location is good, but $20 a night for a mould-infested room is an absolute ripoff

    Not good! On all fronts, I would not recommend staying here. Security was a big concern for me. This place is not set up as a hostel, it is a hotel, where they put many people in the same room.
