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!

    Great hostel to stay at as a solo traveller, the hosts keep the party going every night and will arrange activities for during the day and food delivered to the hostel. Warm comfy beds and good showers. Definitely the place to stay in Nuwara Eliya :)))))

    Cool little place in an old homestead type house. Hosts were always around, ready for chat and a beer. Would definitely recommend if you like a social place to hang out.

    Very Good

    This is a very chilled out hostel. I didn't find the location great as it's a 2km walk from the centre of town and also there is no key needed to get into the actual building itself. The dorms were good though and the bathroom was clean with hot water. There is a communal area inside and a good local breakfast is served every day. Most other guests here seemed to like to chill in the evenings by sitting outside when the owners have a small barbecue.

    Now what to say about this place, granted it was very social and we believe that's showing to be hard in Sri Lanka the hosts where friendly and easy to get on with. They are very knowledgeable about what to do and where to eat and Let's not forget how cute the dogs are! We didn't have a bad time at all. However, the host do love a party so if you're not up for it then make sure you bring ear plugs! Unfortunately it has been the dirtiest hostel during our trip, reminds of first year uni vibes.

    Unfortunately, this is not a hostel is more of a house party gathering. Management should focus more on the maintenance of this establishment instead of sitting around and socializing with guest. The rooms and social areas are dirty with mold all around the roof and walls. Yes dogs are great but clean after them. Guest do need lockers, so please get some. Best of luck!
