    We really enjoyed our stay at Old Parkland Hostel. Pinidu was an amazing and very helpful host. He made delicious breakfast for us with ingredients from his own garden and did everything he could to make sure we had a great stay. We really recommend staying at Old Parkland hostel and we will most definitely come back if we are in Galle again!

    The host is so nice and warm. The food - OMG, it’s delicious. I literally like eating here at the hostel instead of eating out at a restaurant. The location is also so pretty with a huge garden. You can just enjoy stargazing in the night sitting outside. But yeah keep a mosquito repellent ;)

    Pinidu was super accommodating, helpful and so sweet! A true gem! This was our first time staying in a hostel and it didn't disappoint! The house is also gorgeous and the garden is breath-taking. Also relatively close to the beach and restaurants. Definitely recommend!

    Pinidu is a very welcoming and accommodating host. He provides a great tour of his beautiful property when you arrive, teaching you about the various plants and fruits that grow in his garden. The dorm is clean and well maintained. The breakfast is absolutely delicious, and is a must if you stay here!
