    My two friends and I stayed here and absolutely loved it! Very social, very clean, air cons work, all facilities working. Syzmon is a great host and helped us with everything we needed! Met some great people, and the location is perfect, so close to everything but nice and quiet at night! Would definitely recommend this hostel for your stay in Ella!!

    Awesome hostel. One of the best I’ve a stayed at in Sri Lanka. Really good vibe. The staff are really helpful and there is a lot of information at reception about activities to do and how to get around. Great location, close to Ella station and a lot of good restaurants and bars and walking distance to a bunch of good stuff to see around Ella

    Hangover hostel is a great place to base yourself in Ella - it is close to the main road, shops, train station and bus stops. The staff are super helpful with answering questions on what to do in the area and how to get there or get to your next location. It is a well setup hostel with good facilities.

    Really decent hostel a few minutes walk from the train station and right by the bars/restaurants. The staff were really helpful, gave us loads of good advise and easy to rent scooters. We have a private double room which was perfect, nice bathroom and very clean. Like most of Sri Lanka, it was quiet, but not much atmosphere - could have stuck some music one in the communal areas.

    Location and staff excellent. I do believe value for money is poor. Expensive hostel with no free breakfast despite a picture of the breakfast on the page? It’s priced at 350. Very helpful at organising tours and making navigating Ella helpful. Vibe wasn’t brilliant - but most people up early to hike so expected!
