    August 2, 2014 stay in Kandy.....modest hostel,but all clean.Owner very nice+helpful,good breakfast...the price is unbeatable..

    Be aware (for solo female,travellers)that the position of the hostel is very isolated up the hill...owner advices yo not to walk down(20min)to the city after 7pm,as it might be "dangerous"..+you can't get any tuktuk at you are kind of trapped.... (the road is dark,there is a dark tunnel to pass+there are stray dogs..)..but if you are in 2-3..very good+cheap place

    Myself & my 11 yr old daughter stayed in the hostel for 4 nights. The manager was so friendly & helpful- she gave us our choice of rooms, made sure we had every comfort possible and she gave us useful tips on where to go and how much we should expect to pay. She even brought us in fruits out of her own garden. She made our stay in the Kandy Downtown hostel a memorable one.

    The down town was a good little hostel about 2 minutes toktok out of the city centre. The lady there was lovely and more than willing to help us out. Bedrooms were basic but good

    really nice an good staff.. friendly

    It doesnt make sence to stay over the hill and have to pay a expensive tuk tuk to get there. I think the location is not the best one because you are far away of the local transport

    The staff were very kind and helpful as well as speaking fluent English. Clean, and central. Have since stayed at the Sri Lankan hostel at Negombo and I only knew of this hostel as the warden at Kandy was former warden at Negombo

    Could have done with a shared bathroom per dormitory rather than a shared dormitory between two dormitories

    It isn't a hostel but a villa on three level, with many room, balcony and garden; Is good for group. The Villa is sorrounded by greenery. The Staff-boy is friendly and useful, a good person. Breakfast minimal but with egg. Is possible to cook. I could paid with us dollar. SMarket at 300mt Railway station at 2.1 km On the night the only sounds are those of the forest.

    Lack of organisation (they don't know of my booking/arrive). Old Furniture, it's a villa but without owner and none maintenance. WiFi bad. The router is old and the provider blocked some site/port. A few plug around the bed for recharge the phone/tablet (but the boy give me a cord). Lot mosquito (some bed have the net). In the evening is necessary close all the door because there are many flying insects.

    It's a good place to stay and meet People. Staff is really nice and helpful, in my experience all of the hostels of this chain are good!

    The Kandy Down Town Hostel is not so easy to find, as there is no sign or name on the house. Just watch out for the number of the house!

    average hostel, good price and for such money good choise for staying in Kandy, wi-fi is ok, bathroom outside the room, but clean and with hot water, overally good choice, not busy road, so silence in the morning,

    definitely location, it is far from city center, if you want restaurants and schops, you must go by tuk tuk (150 R), maybe it is bad, they dont offer breakfast, but supermarket is not far (10 min)

    Price. This meant it was occupied by other travellers

    WiFi slow at times

    Really great atmosphere met some great people. The staff didn't speak great English but they were helpful. They were present but not overbearing. The kitchen was great facility. Lots of info sheets and space.

    only downfall of this place was that the WiFi was not working. The first day was great but days following it was not connecting. Would be nice for sharper knives.

    Comfortable beds, clean room. They let us change our dates at no cost a few days before we were due to arrive.

    Bathrooms didn't appear to be cleaned. Bits of soap, razors,toothbrushes lying around. A decent sized bar of soap lacking in bathroom. No hot water which is fine on the coast but kandy is a bit cooler so hot water would have been welcome. Bit of a walk from town. Fine during the day but a very dark walk at night.

    Did not have any knowledge of the booking, left to find a new room, at a higher cost. Waste of time.

    We loved the place. The staff was great. The two ladies working there were very helpful in every way and good cooks as well. For our children it was great as well.

    Almost like staying at a family's home. Very helpful and friendly. Close to Kandy.

    Close but some real inclines so ended up using rickshaws. I got my room but be advised a lot of people had to move to another place because they gave their room away.
