Property Description

Offering a fresh approach to affordable accommodation in chilled out Nuwara Eliya, Laughing Leopard Hostel is ideal for intrepid travelers to Sri Lanka who don’t want to compromise on creature comforts, atmosphere, cleanliness and quality. The hostel has five bedrooms (dorms and private rooms) is just 10 minutes from the main bus stop, and 20 minutes from Nanu Oya railway station, a great location for exploring Nuwara Eliya and beyond.
With a nod to up cycling and sustainable living, our hostel is an early 20th century bungalow which was completely renovated before opening, bringing a modern twist to a classic colonial property. Think cottage vibes in “Little England” mixed with minimalist design and a relaxing space to stay between exploration of our misty tea-covered hills and waterfalls.
Our hostel is bright and airy, white walls and accents of color on the doors and our houseplants reflect the lush landscape outside. You can’t escape green in tea country!

    Arrived late night and was immediately brought into a social environment. It's a really fun hostel to be in and the owner is crazy fun. It's easy to get around using the bus at the bottom of the road. No lockers but you dont feel the need for them. Beer is cheap and food is good but proces are pretty random for it. Facilities are good and clean. If you have laundry ots self service.

    Great, social hostel with comfy beds. The breakfast was tasty and there was free filtered water, coffee, and tea. It is about a 20 minute walk from town though, so be prepared to get a bit of exercise. Also, the guys who run it are incredibly helpful and social. Only issue was that they kept the party going until past 3 with music you could hear everywhere in the hostel. If you're a light sleeper, that could be a bit of a problem.

    If you're planning to reach at an awkward timing, don't visit, the hosts are irresponsible and would ask you to sleep out in the cold. If you're reaching during day, it's a good place to stay, good location, decently clean, but the breakfast sucks.

    Hostel is quite far from the city centre. Dorms have no locks nor lockers. Hostel staff is nice, but the place is a little intense. Having 3 dogs fighting for most of the night is a little much. The staff mean good and I enjoy their help. Its an hit or miss type of place.

    There are no lockers and locks for the rooms, which made me feel less secure about my things, the staff is really busy at drinking and smoking that they don't really make the time to give a proper welcome and hospitality. They played loud Tecno music ALL night, so if you are looking to party, it can be the place for you, but if you plan on sleeping, I would choose another place.

    No lockers available. Couldn’t figure out who the attendent/host was there since he was busy partying with the guests the whole time. Didn’t bother to see me standing with bags and even ask. While checkout i stopped over to search for him as I had to pay.
