    The hostel is big, cheap and nice! Stuff is super nice and helpfull. Location is not in centre of town but that is even better,you can easily take super cheap bus to the junction where hostel is (7-8 minutes ride by bus)and then walk 6-7 minutes through nature to hostel. My friend somehow lost her wallet in Ella and people in hostel offered us free food and accomodation if we want because we didn't have much money left. Overall - great hostel with a lot of perspective...and reaaaally good people

    The staff were so kind and friendly. Unfortunately I was sick for most of my stay, but staff made me feel looked after and provided me with lots of ginger tea!

    Very nice rooms and concept but a bit far from the downtown and the breakfast is maybe a bit too basic.

    This is a pocket friendly hostel which will offer everything at a cheap price but there is definitely a sense of compromise on the quality at that price. Recommended for budget backpackers if really short on money

    Nicest owner and staff but we had to move out of our private room because of such poor conditions (shower, flickering light). Fortunately, moved us to a 4 bed room, which we had to ourselves. 40 minute walk from downtown Ella, but he’ll drive you the 10 minute ride for free. 500 rps from town.

    Firstly; the staff are trying to help & you can see that they are really trying to do their best. However, we had quite a disappointment here. Distance from town is definitely further than stated & we couldn’t find anyone to do the trip less than 500R. Peaceful location, but because you are in the middle of no where. Booking failed to go through, arrived to uncertainty & ended up being placed in a house alone a few buildings away. Electric / WiFi sketchy for the whole stay. Stayed 1 of 2 nights.

    The photos I saw on hostelworld before booking looked very different to what I saw in reality! the building was not finished and the beds were full of dust everywhewe...the walls still with fresh doors, the restrooms didnt have any toilet paper, not hot shower. It is a very cold place so sleeping without doors and full of mosquitos is just impossible. The place is VERY far from downtown so it is not possible to enjoy the area especially in the evening.

    Worst experience. We are 3 young girls travelling and so are used to slumming it a fair amount, but this was obscene. Arrived at the hostel to find it was a building site. Made to pay upfront before seeing the room. The room was mattresses on the floor with no windows. One of us would have had to share a double bed with a stranger. Showers didn’t work. Room locked from the outside. We left after 10 mins as we did not feel safe & staff were very hostile about this, would not recommend to ANYONE.
