The set up is amazing. I had the warmest welcome Gee went over and above to make us happy and relaxed. He is an asset to the hostel. Really big space and the pool and restaurant offer the best food in the area. A good mix of Sri Lankan and European. I am a coffee snob so the lovely machine was v important to me. This is an expensive stay for the area but it is a case of you get what you pay for. Everything is v easy to sign onto for activities would stay again.

We were quite disappointed with our stay. The front desk lady was extremely rude, unhelpful and had no interest in making us feel welcome. We handed in a bag of laundry- which was NOT cheap and it came back damp, and had to be re-hung, when we queried/tried to tell the same front desk lady- she blatantly ignored us and brushed off the issue. Cupboards on top- inaccessible. The facilities are lovely, and the kitchen/bar staff were wonderful- on the whole very over priced for what you get.
