    I loved staying in this hostel! The staff were so helpful and welcoming. The hostel was very quiet when I went but as a solo female traveller, everything felt safe and secure. It was clean and the breakfast was absolutely delicious!!!!

    Lovely place to stay in Ella, close to the centre and far enough from the noise. Lovely rooms and really welcoming staff. Great value for money too - thank you! Mia & Will

    Great hostel with multiple common areas and games, very social. Staff were all very friendly and helpful, and the owner so kindly gave me a lift to the station at 6.30am! My only complaint would be that the bathroom wasn't cleaned for the 4 days I was there, and obviously hadn't been cleaned just before I arrived either. The sink was gross and the bathroom stank of toilet. It was a shame as the rest of the hostel was very clean. Aside from this I really enjoyed my stay!!

    No wifi, electricity cuts out 5-10 times a day, hosts hardly speak English, no other backpackers staying there at the same time we did therefore no real atmosphere. Lots of mosquitos making sleeping difficult. Complimentary breakfast was ok. Nice view from the balcony.

    This stay at Ella has been one of the most disappointing stay through out Sri Lanka. The location of the hostel is at a good place but it’s very poorly maintained. The pictures updated on website are probably photoshopped as the place is nothing like seen. The rooms are pretty okay but there are way too many bed bugs. WiFi S**ks at this Hostel. Would definitely not recommend this place to stay. It’s a 1 star place with bad facilities. Wonder how it’s got 9 stars!
