    This hostel was way over our expectations! Very simple accommodation but has an amazing view over the tea covered mountains and feels just like staying in the middle of the jungle. We heard from the owner that the new name for the hostel also goes under 'Green Mount Hostel'. Best stay in Sri Lanka.

    The hostel has everything you need at a very reasonable price. Very good place to go if you want to just chill out. In the middle of tea plantation. The owner is superb. Would do anything for you. I left my headphones in Kandy and he went over and above what I would have expected to sort it out for me. Sorted out our Safari in Yala at a very reasonable price too without putting any pressure on us at all. Top top guy.

    Very nice place to escape the crowds in Ella. Owner can offer home-cooked meals, scooter, laundry. Good wifi. There are two dorms, and one of them is unfortunately only separated from the kitchen and common room by curtains. No complaints about the other dorm.

    Great place in the jungle. It is a cozy place to stay and relax, go for walks in the jungle and just have an amazing view over Ella. The host is very sweet and helped me and my friends with our laundry, hiring scooters and so on.

    Location is not so great, it is quite far to the main road and when it is dark there are no lights etc. It is quite loud in the night if people are sitting outside and there are no doors so there is no privacy. Bathroom was clean though.

    This hostel was a little out of the way of Ella city but its got a great scenery. Got there and theres no food to buy from anywhere close, you have to tuk tuk it to Ella city for 300lkr (600lkr return) or walk for 20-30 minutes (60minutes return). Not so cost effective. There a few powerpoints and you might be sleeping right near the front door. The host helped alot and was very kind, he drew a map of how to get to the main attractions and. It's not a bad place but needs improvements for sure.

    Absolutely lovley owner! but.. The location requires a 30 minute walk into town or a 300-400ruppee tuk tuk. Secondly the layout of the hostel is rubbish, our room had no doors and was attached to another big room and also to the owners kitchen, this led to frequently feeling disturbed at night as people constantly walked through. Thirdly the facilities aren’t great, we had to walk through another guest’s room to use their ensuite as the only other toilet was outside. No light or fan in our room.
