    Best hostel ever!! Gorgeous location, unreal food and beautiful rooms! Roy is an absolute legend who goes out of his way to make your trip amazing! From sunset tuk tuk drives, to safari trips to sunrise hikes, Roy has it all sussed and makes everything so easy! His gorgeous family just tops it off! Amazing food cooked by his wife, including a sandwich for the bus when we left! Hands down the best hostel I've ever stayed in! 100% lives up to the reviews!

    My new favourite hostel! We could have easily spent weeks here. Roy and his family were so welcoming and made everything easy for us. He helped us re-plan our trip based on our interests. Can’t wait to see what becomes of this hostel. We had the best time and can’t wait to visit again!

    Roy’s hostel was just about the best hostel I’ve ever stayed at. He is one of the nicest people I’ve met in the world and so helpful with any question you have about the whole of Sri Lanka. He organised tours for us to the elephant safari and helped us work out our itinerary for the rest of Sri Lanka. The beds are massive and really comfy. Almost feels like you are staying at a hotel. His wife is an amazing cook and the dinner and breakfast were out of this world. Would recommend this place!!!!!

    Such a fantastic little retreat of a hostel! While I was on my own at the hostel (not many tourists in SL these days) I still had a fantastic time here! Roy and his staff could not do enough for me! I arrived in a thunderstorm and was brought straight to my room so I could have a hot shower with fluffy towels! The room and also the food were so good! Roy organised my tuk tuk for me for the next morning to Sigiriya Rock and even gave me a sandwich for my journey back to Kandy! Highly recommend!

    Roys hostel is one of the best hostels i have ever stayed in. Very rarely in the hotel/hostel industry do you meet someone who is as genuine and attentive as Roy. He helped plan out my itinerary for my trip around sri lanka and provided wonderful food and service. Highly recommend if you are staying in Sigiriya.

    Roy's Villa Hostel is by far the best place we stayed in Sri Lanka. Roy is the best host and cannot do enough to make your trip as good as it can be. The food Roy's wife cooks is amazing too. I can't recommend this place enough!

Our trip was during the latest circumstances that Colombo and Sri Lanka was passing through, he made sure to extend our stay for as many as possible to provide safety for all!

    I have always been bad about leaving reviews. When it comes to Roy’s, though, I feel like I need to tell the world about it. To start, Roy is truly the kindest person I’ve ever met in the hospitality industry, giving attention and service better than you’d find at a 5 star hotel. He rescued me as I was stranded in a tuk tuk 10km away from the hostel, took a group of us with his family to a local festival, showed us hidden lakes, even bought us all ice cream. Just some examples. Thank you Roy!!!!
