    I had a great stay at Old Parkland. Everything was super clean and orderly. They have a well maintained antique house and a massive great garden spaces as well as a jungle area. This place is great for enjoying with friends and families, most suitable for a private villa. The host was incredibly friendly and handled the whole operation well. Breakfast was special with lot of food. Place is close to the couple of main beaches and Old Dutch Fort. I would gladly stay there again.Highly recommended.

    Probably the most interested hostel I’ve ever stayed in. Great atmosphere with a beautiful natural environment. Many things can do in the huge grounds. Playing, meditation, yoga etc.. I gain a knowledge about fruits, vegetables and cinnamon from host’s ground tour. He was very nice and willing to help you out with whatever you need. Place is in the center of Galle town and easily accessible from tourist places around it. Best place for hanging out and visit the Galle very well. Highly recommend.

    Had a great experience there ! Nicely arranged and nice sized dorm with good facilities including lockers. Great architectural valuable rare old property. Host was very welcoming and friendly. His garden tour was really amazing, like I’m been to a botanical garden, full of coconut trees, other tropical trees and plants in the garden. Beaches and supermarkets are close by here and there were buses all the time and taxis available. I felt this was a luxury home not a hostel. I would stay again.

    One of the most picturesque places I ever stayed in. It has it’s own qualities and specialities. Traditional rare old house with wonderful diverse garden. Natural environment is very eco friendly one. Perfect place for having rest and visit Galle. Dorm had enough facilities with great cleanliness. Breakfast was very delicious. Had a nice chat with a mate in the morning and teach me yoga in the garden, it’s felt very good relax to mind and makes happy feeling in the whole day. Would stay again !

    Absolutely fantastic stay ! Lovely place, honestly you will have everything you would need for your stay. Friendly welcome, great host who gave me a tour of the garden and offered me a coconut. I tried some other fruits as well. Saw squarrels and porcupines. Breakfast was superb with lot of food. Excellent value for money. Hostel is close to major touristic sights around it. Hands down the best overnight stay I’ve had in a while, including hotels. Highly recommended.

    Great hostel, very clean and had a good atmosphere. Host was friendly and welcoming. After a long day of travel I was happy that this place was within short distance from couple of good beaches and main city. Here you’re 5 minutes away from shops, groceries and convenient stores. You can find buses right in front of the hostel’s as well. Dorm was super clean and quiet and it has enough spaces for your luggages. I look forward to my future stays at OLD PARKLAND hostel. Highly recommended.

    Really enjoyed my time in here ! Beautiful old house belongs by generations. Garden was stunning with full of tropical trees and fruits. Host’s garden tour was very worth full, it helped me to identify the environment very well. He was very friendly & welcoming. Met some good mates finally they became my friends. I had the breakfast in the garden it was the best part of my stay. Nice place to chill and hanging out. Easy reachable from Old Dutch Fort and beaches.
