    This place was awesome, staff was lovely and very helpful. Bus stop was an easy walk which made Unawatuna and Galle easy as pie. Location is perfectly between the two- just bring a headlamp because of the island-wide power cuts can make a walk to the bus very dark!!

    A very spacious and clean hostel, though not many travellers in Galle at the time. Our host was very accommodating, though was a little quirky sometimes. He went to the shops when he heard we were going and bought our drinks, he offered us his moped to drive (What!? Cool!) And was always happy to chat

    Lovely hostel - a little bit out of the way but tuk tuks are pretty easy. Quiet and the air conditioning is amazing in a very hot Galle!

    Walked from the train station. It took half an hour. I love it walking along the beach to see the scenery. Hostel staff were welcoming, helpful. Free breakfast was simple but served for each person. Very quiet place. I could sleep well. Clean bathroom, common area. I stayed at 4beds room which has no windows. I felt always in the dark room. Only thing was a negative point.

    Place was clean but there were only 2 other guests there during my stay and I barely saw them so there was basically no atmosphere. Great location as it is very close to the bus stop for Mirissa and the supermarket. Also only takes about half an hour to walk to the Fort area. If I ever go to Galle again though I would probably pay a bit more money and stay within the Fort area.

    A bit outside of the fort area but we stil had a great stay. Super clean, friendly host, and an awesome breakfast were the highlights, plus you can catch the bus to Mirissa from the corner.

    I booked the female dorm and was put in a mixed dorm. After complaining to the Manager, he then moved me. I was not the only female who complained about this issue. He then charged me the full amount, and I had to remind him that I had already paid a deposit via Hostel World, he then refunded me. If I hadn't mentioned anything, I would not have received a refund. The Manager did correct issues that I raised, however, these issues should not have happened in the first place.

    We were 2 girls travelling together hence we opted for a hostel. But let me tell you, we were the only two living there for 3 nights. We had booked a private room for ourself. The hostel is in a tiny lane and It was scary as hell. The care taker was very rude. On the first day we had asked him to lend his bike, later on he refused. Not once during our stay, he asked us if we are comfy or need anything. I wouldn't suggest anyone to stay here. We are grateful that nothing wrong happened to is
