    Nice hostel in Ella area which is super beautiful town. This hostel is clean and I liked the common area even though it is not that big. It was easy to meet new people and there is lots of nature stuff to do in Ella area (hiking, waterfalls, Railway walks etc)

    Good hostel with friendly, helpful staff, additional yoga classes in the mornings and afternoons, and ideal location. There isn't much of a social vibe as there's an 11pm lights-out policy but everyone was friendly

    Great place to stay if you want to get stuck into activities around Ella: it's right in the centre of town and staff are very friendly and great at helping organise. Unfortunately there's not much of a social vibe due to lack a good hangout space. There's a few couches around the reception but staff turn the lights off at 10pm and effectively kick everyone out. Comfy rooms and hot showers are a bonus.

    I loved my stay in this hostel! It’s a great location in Ella and the staff are really friendly and helpful at booking activities for you. I was here over Christmas and they prepared a nice Christmas meal which helped bring everyone together to socialise. I met some great people here but the outdoor social area in general wasn’t that social when I stayed - probably because everyone is out doing things. Would definitely recommend this place if you’re staying in Ella though!

    Great location. Good sized dorms, shower was lovely with hot water. Staff were excellent, very friendly. However, no water refill available - you have to purchase large plastic bottles which is such a disappointment in this day - seems odd as people hiking would need to top up their water supply often? I asked a staff member would they consider getting a water filter and just charge guests that way but she said no. It would be a simple addition but would improve the hostel a lot IMO.
