    No complaints here - good vibes with our fellow hostel-stayers. Everyone was friendly and open to splitting ride fares and sharing insider tips. There're two yoga lessons a day, and the terrace remains open if you want to use it. Very clean, very professional - run like a well-oiled engine. Towels available for rent, and trips are organized depending on interest. Located right off the main road of Ella, so you get the convenience, but not the noise.

    As all other reviews stated, this is not a party hostel. It’s good for helping you arrange tour’s, hikes or activities. The beds are comfortable. The shower is warm. There is also proper security. Just limited ability to meet people randomly in common areas as no hostel activities.

    A nice clean hostel, the staff were friendly and it is in a great location. Only issue for me was the atmosphere- i was expecting parties and a social atmosphere. Beer was allowed from outside but there was no music or rhe social aspect. A great place to stay and go to the waterfalls , little adams peak and the nine arches. Staff were helpful and trips were reasonably priced through the hostel. Overall a decent stay just don’t be misled by the name!

    Hangover hostel in Ella is conveniently situated in the central town area of Ella close to the station. It is still far enough to be away from the noise of the bars and restaurants. The facilities at the hostels are decent with no issues with WiFi. Being a popular town meeting up with fellow guests isn't problem.
