    I highly recommend Old parkland homestay, and I urge travellers to try this out. You get to live in a century old house with a sprawling wide well maintained garden. Vegetables and fruits we had for lunch and breakfast came straight off the garden. There is only one room which fits five. Its very clean and has an ensuite hot and cold shower room. The linen were white clean and fresh and the bed was comfortable. It has an A/C and two electric fans. Pinidu was an excellent host and very thoughtful

    Had a great stay. More like a deluxe homestay than a hostel. Great cleanliness, comfy bed, large bathroom, a/c. Really great home cooked food (including fruit from the huge garden). Traveling here alone (& only person staying) it was nice chatting to the host and his brother so did not feel alone. As you can see it's not right in the fort but you can get a tuktuk to the centre for less than 1$. Note food is not included in the price (nor should you expect it to at the price it is)

    Pinidu was a great host and went out of his way to help me. The property is beautiful and the food was great. Would definitely recommend staying here if you're near Galle.

    Old Parkland hostel is a great home stay experience. Pinidu and his family are wonderful hosts and very welcoming and attentive to all your needs. Their home is a beautiful craftsman built home dating from the 19th Century and set on 6 acres of beautifully manicured grounds. The place is spotlessly clean, the beds are comfortable, there is a good size locker for your valuables and the shower is hot and the bathroom clean. I would not hesitate returning!

    I had a really good time at Old Parkland Hostel. The owner is really friendly and want to do anything to make you feel comfortable. The food is also really great and most of the ingredients come straight from his garden. He is keen to show you the beautiful garden with all the different vegetable and fruit trees. The hostel itself is really clean and tidy, and the family house is gorgeous as well. I would absolutely recommend this hostel for your stay in Galle!

    I had such a nice stay here! There wasn’t other people around so no “atmosphere” as such. The hostel I booked had to close so I picked here instead, and I’m glad I did. Great AC and comfy, clean rooms. Huge gorgeous garden with all sorts of fruits and wildlife. Personally, I found it easy to get to the Dutch fort and jungle beach etc it’s simple enough on the bus or by tuktuk. It’s not a party hostel, but I can imagine with a few more people there it’s a really nice place to hang out and relax.

    Such a lovely stay! Staff were super friendly and helped with anything you needed, the room was suffiecient and comfortable and the bathroom was also at a decent standard. The location is lovely, the building and the large garden, but it is a tuk tuk journey or 40 minute walk ish to Galle Fort, making it a bit of a trek to get there and back. However, it is a 15-20 minute walk to the beach, supermarkets and other places to eat.
