    Roy’s Villa was simply superb. The rooms were spacious and facilities excellent. Roy is the most fantastic host, he’ll make you feel like family. We organised two trips, one to watch the sunrise over lion rock and one to the nearby kaudulla national park through Roy. We also had a great time enjoying the family meal cooking class together. Would definitely recommend!

    This is my favourite hostel I have ever stayed at! Roy is so nice and willing to help you out with everything you need, including organising activities around Sigiriya. The rooms are so clean and the beds are massive. The best part is the atmosphere - it is in a very quiet part so is so relaxing. The hang out area is so nice with hammocks and a big table where we had family breakfasts and dinners (which were so delicious!!!). Roy’s son is also the cutest! Don’t stay anywhere else but here!!!!

    Roy is an incredible host. One of the most thoughtful and caring people I have ever met. He not only wants you to have a great place to stay, but wants you to have a great experience while you are staying there. Everything he does is focused around this aspect. It's really awesome to stay here and get to know Roy/his family and experience one of the most unique hostel experiences I have ever encountered.

    Roy is the man! He makes you feel right at home with his home-cooked meals and help setting up safaris and other adventures. The hostel is small, but has an outstanding atmosphere, especially with his family style meals. Best hostel in Sri Lanka hands down!
