    Seriously the people who work here are just amazing. They are so kind and so helpful. They always try to make sure you're enjoying yourself and if need help with anything or don't want to do something solo they will do their best to make sure they find someone else to go with you. It's such a chill place and so close to all the restaurants and train station. You can also walk to the 9 Arch Bridge and Adams peak. I don't suggest you take a tuk-tuk bc the hike will be much more difficult.

    The hostel is really well located, walking distance to the train station and restaurants and cafes. The terrace is lovely, looking over tea plantations. The rooms are big and the beds are comfy. Shehan is the best manager you can find in Sri Lanka! He and his wife will help you with absolutely everything, namely booking excursions, finding people to share a taxi, giving you advice of the best places to go and have food or coffee. He really makes your life easy! Thank you!!

    Great location right by the main road and comfortable and clean rooms. Staff are nice and can help you arrange transport, etc. There isn’t much of a social vibe going on though.

    Very Good

    I only stayed for one night whilst passing through Ella. The good; lockers are a decent size, location is handy just a short walk from the station, decent WiFi and a nice terrace area. The bad; deposits for room keys, 6 bed dorm was pretty tight and having the shower and toilet in the room didn’t help and was a bit off putting, no free drinking water to refill bottles.
