    We only stayed one night in Kandy, but I would've stayed longer just to get to know our hosts more! You've never met a sweeter pair of human beings. They were so outstandingly kind (good vibes!) that I just wanted to be around them. They also informed us of how to catch the train to Ella. The facilities were good value for the money - clean, simple, and surprisingly cool in the evening. The main sites are within 20 minutes walking, but be ready to climb up and down hills!

    Very friendly family/staff! Helpful with finding a tuk tuk driver for me so I could explore most of the sights in one day. Quite hot at night but there is a fan in the dorm. Good breakfast for a small extra charge. I would stay again!

    We really enjoyed our stay! Only planned on staying one night but decided to extend one more. Our hosts were super friendly. It is a little steep getting up to the hostel but there are plenty of tuktuk available :)

    Good value for a cheap hostel. Staff is so sweet and really wants you to feel at home, super helpful as well. Beds werent so good, no ac, and not many people staying here. But again, the hostel is so cheap so it's definitely worth it!

    Stayed in the private room with my girlfriend. The hosts here are really nice, extremely welcoming and helpful for our onward travel to Sigiriya. The breakfast was good too and pretty cheap. However be aware this is a pretty budget option and there is a reason it doesn't cost much relative to other Kandy accommodation. Our room was quite shabby, there was mould on the wall and the ceiling fan was extremely loud; the shower head wall attachment in the bathroom was broken too. Cheap & cheerful!

    J hostel was slightly further than I expected and located on a steep hill (with additional stairs to get to the building), which would be difficult for travelers with wheeled luggage. Overall, rooms and atmosphere was fine, if a little dated. But it seems that nobody has stayed there in a while - there was a dust on the beds, dead bugs, lizard poop, and small bedbugs. The hostel manager swiped away the bedbugs and said they were ants. I left immediately and checked into a hotel.
