    Must stay hostel; Roy was a great host, helped to organise safari/transport, conducted a cooking class and a bonfire subsequent night. Great for a chat and had a really insightful perspective of sri lanka. Dorm rooms feel like a private with big beds, lights, powerpoints, lockers all closeby. Awesome food. Would recommend to any young traveller regardless of budget as wont get the same experience elsewhere

    We had a fantastic stay with Roy and his family (his kid is too cute). Roy’s family dinners are fantastic, I would really recommend joining in with his cooking classes too. We were asking Roy loads about the history of Sri Lanka and we learnt loads!! The atmosphere is great, we met some lovely people. Beds and rooms are sooo nice with a gorgeous hot shower! Roy even gave us a sandwich when we left for our 4 hour drive to Ella. He couldn’t do enough for us. Definitely a highlight of our trip!

    Well I am so glad I choose this place. This place made me feel like a family. They conducted Sri Lankan cusine cooking class at evening, and it was an amazing experience. Roy was always helpful for anything you need. I would definitely visit again if I come to Sri Lanka in future.

    Had a great time at Roy's Villa. Roy is an attentive and caring host. The rooms are clean and spacious, the bed promises you a very good night sleep. The stay was topped off by the cooking lesson and grouped dinner with chills at the bonfire after.

    Roy’s Villa Hostel is really a must for the backpacker around Sri Lanka. Not only is it a lovely place, the beds are heavenly, but the whole vibe of the place is unmatched. Roy and all the staff are so friendly and keen to do as much as possible to help you enjoy your stay. Whilst a little out of the way, it’s super easy to get to where you want to go (we tuk-tuked to Dambulla, pedal biked to Sigiriya and motorbiked to Pollunaruwa). A must visit, and given Roy’s plans, it’ll only get better.

    Roy’s hostel was a great place to stay-we had a fabulous time! The dinner buffet there is amazing and an incredible price! Roy is so friendly and makes sure you have a good evening with like-minded people. It is not on the Main Street of Sigiriya but you can get there easily enough. I would highly recommend to anyone to stay there!
