Very Good

Overall the location of the hostel was beautiful, but kinda far away from Ella. You can walk on the train tracks to town, which is really nice but does take about 30 minutes. The host was friendly, but the atmosphere wasn’t very welcoming. For the price it was good, though, as you also get a breakfast on top (4 slices of toast, a bit of butter& jam and fruits).

One of the best hostels I have stayed in. A lovely colonial style country house set in beautiful countryside just outside ella. Staff are all friendly, kind, and clearly care about their guests experience. You can see they work hard to keep the place clean and well maintained. Food is great too (Ashan is a hidden gem of a cook). As long as you don’t mind being a bit out of town (2km down the train tracks takes 30-40mins walk), it’s perfect.

Lovely stay in an old colonial-style house at the top of the mountain in Ella. Difficult to get to however the view, kind owners and gorgeous interior more than make up for it. Breakfast very cheap and worth it. Would recommend staying if happy to either chill away from Ella Village or happy to rent a bike!
