    Great chill place. There were 2 other travelers with me they were both really nice & I hung out with them a bit. The host was so lovely, polite, helpful and incredibly kind. He cooked me fried rice without egg as a vegan breakfast per my request. Good location for exploring Galle. Would recommend if you’re looking for a chilled out stay. !

    Wonderful experience ! I just wish I could have stayed longer but my busy time schedule didnt allow me to do so. Nice sized dorm with great amenities. Size of the dorm and number of beds were very suitable for a hostel compared to other hostels I have stayed at. Garden area is such a nice place to chill out. Host was very useful throughout the stay. Possibility to reach some of the tourist places on foot and some can reach by a short ride. I felt I came to the right place to visit Galle.

    I had Such a worthful stay at this place. Nice traditional style old house with lovely ground area which is very green with lots of trees. You can hear birds in the morning and the sunshine over the garden was amazing. Great atmosphere pretty cool place considering it’s in the middle of a busy city. Host gave me some of great recommendations for a true Galle experience. Breakfast was awesome one of the best I ever had and it’s worth the price you spend. I will definitely stay here again.

    Absolutely, positively, no questions asked, just come stay at this hostel if you are in Galle. You will be totally satisfied. Host is welcoming, accommodating and make sure you are having a good time. Dorm is comfortable, bed is great and bathroom facilities are perfect. The natural environment at this place is worth more than anything though, and I’m so glad to have spent a night here. I will for sure be back.

    I stayed at a few different hostels over my time in Sri Lanka and I would have to say Old Parkland was by far the standout. Host was very friendly and helpful and the place has a very relaxed atmosphere. Facilities up to the decent standard and dorm had enough spaces. Met some great people who were staying there. Breakfast was superb. Close to couple of good beaches and Old Dutch Fort. Overall it’s a fantastic hostel, great garden too ! Best hostel in Sri Lanka by far :)

    You wouldn’t expect more comfortability and relaxation than this in a hostel. Everything in this hostel had above the hostels’ standard, it’s more like a villa atmosphere. Garden was very diversified with full of trees and plants, especially the coconut trees. Host offered me a coconut drink as well when I just arrived, he was very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the beautiful scenery of the garden and breathed clean air which was a great bonus. Good homemade food. Thank you for everything !
