    Booked a night and ended up staying more (6 in my case) is a sentence you will hear often when talking to the people who stay here. The place has a great vibe, great views and offers a great hideout from the busy life and also great conversations. Asela is a great guy to be around, very helpful with very detailed instructions and suggestions. You can never go wrong being here, I highly recommend the place.

    Hipster hideout was the perfect spot to kick back and chill in Ella. If you want to save some extra coin for decent food (which is more expensive in this town than other places In Sri Lanka) this is an ideal spot to post up. Nestled in the foot of the hills about a km outside of town, it overlooks beautiful tea plantations. There is a Buddhist temple on top of the hill and you can hear them chanting as the sun goes down. Lovely walk into town, lots of wildlife, amazing staff and brekky!

    Loved my stay here, in the most beautiful location but the guy who owns it, Dillon, is a legend!! He has been by far my favourite host in Sri Lanka. At the time I was the only guest staying and he went out of his way to make me feel welcome and looked after. I will definitely be back, I would recommend this place to anyone (plus Dillon makes amazing noodles)

    Hipsters Hideout is probably the best hostel to stay in in Ella. Its 15-20 minutes by foot from the city center, which is a good thing, because you escape the very ´loud and touristy city. It is is located in beautiful nature and the hostel owner Dillan can tell you everything about activies in Ella and the rest of Sri Lanka. Because of him we completly changed the rest of our trip for the better. The hostel is simple but very welcoming and familiar atmosphere. We will come back for sure!

    We had a really great experience! Although the hostel is a bit further away from the main road (15 min walk), the staff was extremely helpful and friendly! We learned a lot about the Sri Lankan culture, local traditions and food. We had a great time talking to the manager and he even taught us how to cook different Sri Lankan dishes. The hostel provided us with a detailed map and gave us helpful tips where to go (/hike to). It’s the perfect accommodation to get to know the country first hand!

    It was really nice to stay in hipster hideout. The place is cozy and not in the city, so you have a pacefull stay and beautiful view. You can get to the center walking or by tuk tuk in 10 minutes. I had the beeest breakfast ever! You have to try Sei lankan breakfast with coconut and avocado 😋 The beds are not too good, I had aa backpain and the sheets are not good either. But I had a really nice stay and the staff was amazing
