    This is the nicest hostel I've been in since I moved to India and began traveling three years ago. Not only is it sparkling clean and physically beautiful, the staff went out of their way to make sure I was happy. The wall chargers are amazing (a three-prong socket and two USB ports) so everything is easily charged. The free breakfast was perfect The only reason I put less than excellent on location was tuk-tuk drivers sometimes have a hard time finding the place. And hot showers would be nice.

    It was our first stop in Sri Lanka and steps was perfect for us! It was located in the city a small tuk tuk ride to and from anywhere! I highly recommend the city tour they offer, we saw everything we wanted and the guide was really well informed! The hostel breakfast changed each day and was amazing, they provide dinner if asked and that also was amazing! The cook was the sweetest lady around! The host was also very informed and help us with every question we had, very helpful! Wonderful spot!

    Really nice and helpful staff! The hostel is far from the city center and there is nothing you can do by walking distance. Also, the place is hard to find, I arrived late at night and was completely lost. The breakfast is a highlight for sure, the nicest I had in a hostel!! The accommodation is comfortable and showers are good.

    The staff were friendly and the place clean. We were there on the off season so it was largely empty. The breakfast was simple, nourishing and fulfilling. The set up of the place means it could be a lot of fun there in season. If we were coming through we would definitely come here again. However, the area was not quite what we expected, though this is no fault of theirs 😊 sit on the balcony and check out the wildlife, it's stunning.

    The room received did not have an AC unlike shown in the pictures and also in the general facilities available. Also the fans were two table fans which were pretty ineffective. The balcony door did not lock either and a mosquito net should be added. Very basic room, location is not very optimal either. Basic breakfast is provided, however no free water filling facilities there. Suitable as a last minute transit accommodation.
