This hostel is on a very unique botanical property and part of a 120 year old home. It’s a 5 minute tuktuk ride from Galle Fort and just far away enough to be out of the chaos by the beaches. Basic but clean beds and very clean and large shared bathroom. Owner Pinadu was a caring and attentive host and just all around a great guy. He will take you around the coconut farm and show you all the great produce and fruits they grow there. He prepared me *the best* traditional food I’ve had in Sri Lanka for breakfast each day and the portions were huge. This isn’t the most social hostel and more to relax but was perfect for me to get away from the craziness. Bring mosquito spray as this is a farm style property. If you need to get a car or tuk tuk Pinadu will arrange for you which was very helpful.
