    Such a lovely place!! the man who runs this hostel is so lovely and welcoming- also makes the BEST breakfast we’ve had in Sri Lanka. Easy access to the rest of Ella whilst also being a bit hidden away which we really liked! Would 100% reccomend to other backpackers. Make sure you bring a padlock for your room though as this is the only way to lock the door.

    The staff were very nice and helpful. We had a mix up with our booking but they handled it really well and ended up putting us in a better room for the same price. The free breakfast was delicious and the bathrooms were clean and had hot water. Basic hostel but it had everything you needed and was in a great location to the main street and most attractions in Ella. Would definitely stay again!

    We really enjoyed staying there. The breakfast is the best since breakfast we’ve ever had in a hostel. The owner is a really friendly person. But there is not all the time WiFi and in the end he charged us 5€ more than we should have paid.

    for budget travellers a great spot, don't expect too much from the rooms. It's enough to sleep, we hadn't windows in the room and it was a bit musty. BUT the hosts a great people. They make you the best breakfast (which was included) with omlets, tea, coffee, banana and some sri lankan food.

    Great budget place for a couple of nights. Very basic but great location and lovely guy who lent us his own scooter for 2 days. Zero vibes when we we there but plenty of other places to meet people in Ella. Very basic toilet /shower facilities. Great for you seriously budget backpacker!

    Although the staff & guests were friendly (and the breakfast was nice), this hostel didn't have any security (no lockers and staff were hard to find) and it felt really unclean. The shower/toilet were basically just shacks outdoors, with limited privacy and no hand soap. There was a puppy there that, whilst being cute, would cry if it couldn't get into your room at night (we blocked the gap under the door) and then bite everything once it did. We changed hostels after one night.

    Arrived at the property to no one there to check us in except another guest who said just pick a bed and after a long day of travelling and just wanting to relax that didn’t feel sufficient as a welcome as all the doors to all rooms were wide open with a dog in the reception/ lounge area so wasn’t secure at all. Could tell it hadn’t been cleaned for a good while and needed to be a bit more precise about the toilet condition
