    Great place to stay! Beautiful property and very clean. Would recommend getting the home cooked breakfast and tea. Pinidu the care taker was especially kind and helpful. He was also extremely resourceful and gave the best suggestions for experiencing galle fully.

    Pinidu's house is beautiful, but it's the garden that is super special, my kids called it 'The Garden of Eden'. They chased fireflies in the evening, saw giant lizards and there are even porcupines if you are lucky. We are a family of 4 and had the whole dorm to ourselves. Great A/C and decent WiFi. Breakfast is great and enough to fill you up for the day. The place is about 1.5km from Sahana beach (150rp) and a bit more to the Fort area. Pinidu is a great honest guy. We really loved it here.

    Dinipu has created a special place central distance to Central Bus Station, Galle Fort, Unawatuna, Jungle Beach, Sahana Beach & Arpico. You can reach all of these places in a few minutes and at low Rs cost - esp if you use the Pick Me app. This is a secure, 102-year old home located on acres of garden space, perfect for relaxing and recharging. Breakfast is not to be missed, and easily among the best in Sri Lanka! Dorm has spotless bathroom, crisp linens, strong air con AND fans. RECOMMENDED!

    We stayed for one night at Old Parkland Hostel. Pinidu was an excellent host - he organised tuk tuks for us into Galle, showed us around his garden and home and provided a traditional breakfast for us in the morning. He also offered us dinner in the evening but we chose to eat in Galle. The house was very clean with good wifi. We had an excellent night here and would highly recommend.
