Excellent hostel! I very enjoyed staying there. Staff are very nice, attentive and kind. The ambience is friendly, relaxing and comfortable.
Kandy Downtown hostel's highlight is it's staff. They are incredibly friendly and genuine human beings. I felt comfortable and at-home instantly. They are very kind, polite and very accomodating. The hostel itself is great too for its price. Set in a beautiful building on quiet Anniewatta street , its a great place to meet other travelers. The dorm beds were surprisingly comfy and very clean. Best part is each bed comes with its own power outlet right next to it! I thought it was a great touch and very thoughtful. They also offer laundry facility and some tours. I highly recommend this place.
The location was not as central as I would've liked. Its located in a hilly area about 2 km from the railway station and bus station. Thats a 30 min walk mostly uphill. A tuk-tuk will cost you between 150 and 200 each way (depends if you are going uphill or down)
The hostel is close to the center, but not in that area. Staff are priceless! I really enjoyed staying there.
Kanty and Indika are so nice people, that i was amazed. You can rely on them totally. If you need something, they will help. And also i need to say about atmosphere there. It is very friendly and comfortable. Many places to sit and talk. I was very happy to be there
Very lovely place, i really enjoyed it!
Small building, if you will look from the road, but actually, it has 3 floors. The place is very clean and comfortable. And many people to meet. That is great. Awesome atmosphere!
its location is on the hill and far away from the central!there's no hot water for shower
Clean, friendly, included breakfast( not normal), nice people, free WiFi, and walk able distance to the city center.( 10min) also close to supermarket and liquor shop
The trainschedule was an Old one why i missed my traine. But for organised people who dont only trust on plans no problème.
Staff is very nice and helpfull Good place near from center Good price and service
the staff were extremely good and were taking care of the place really well..highly recommended..
Very nice stuff, so friendly and helpful! Amazing!
Great atmosphere stayed 5 nights total at this guesthouse!!
The Staff was extremely Kind ! They can drive you by their private tuk tuk wherever you want for a very reasonable price. You can also do your landry for almost nothing, the place is very clean and the lobby is large enough to meet other travelers. I definitly recommand this hostel !
Стоит какой-то группе засидеться и это слышно всему хостелу.
The people working at this hostel will do just about anything to help you and make you feel at home.
No real mattress, just foam. Had some trouble connecting to the wifi in the room.
We were here for four days. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Everytime we got back to the hostel it was kinda coming home. We like the calm and peaceful place. It is just perfect coming back after the city stress. The Hostel has a own TukTuk driver. The prices are very good.
I didn't even expected, that this place will be so good. Nice staff, good company, tasty food, quiet place. Love it!
I stayed for 13 nights in this quite and peaceful guesthouse and felt from the beginning like being at home. It is located on the hillside and the center is easy to reach by tuc tuc or even by walk (around 20 min). It has a nice terrasse where you can do yoga in the morning or gather with other guests and exchange travelling stories. Kanthi, the lady who runs the hostel is a very nice and caring person. She has an open ear for every problem and gives you the feeling you're a family member and not only a guest. She serves a free breakfast in the morning and cooks delicious local food in the evening. The place is spacious and clean and well maintained and whatever information is needed......you'll get it from Kanthi and Indica (the tuc-tuc driver). He drops you around, shows you interesting places for raisonable prices and gives you a lot of information. Altogether I have to say.........whenever I come back to Kandy I'll know where I'll stay again. And I will send my friends as well.
Nice staff. Good location.Good free breakfast and meal.
Friendly staff, Good to have in-house bicycle n' tuck-tuck facility, Bed and Breakfast, Good for walkbility
Its quite away from city center
Nothing..!! very bad
I loved the hostel...great staff so friendly...felt at home:)...food was very tasty...loved it so much came back to kandy several times!....highly recommend this place:)
The Tuk-Tuk driver, Indika, will take you anywhere and for a great price. He is charming and has great information about the places you go to. The lady who is running the hostel, Kanthi, is such a sweet woman. She really takes care of you. The place is alway clean. She is always cooking something yummy.
Khanti and Indika are the best, managing Kandy Down Town in a way that makes guests feel right at home, while at the same time maintaining very high standards. The place is spacious, clean, well cared for, and comfortable. Khanti cooked up some fabulous meals using local foods like jackfruit, gotu kola, pumpkin, and others. Delicious, healthy, and at great prices. Kandy Down Town is also conducive to meeting other backpackers. We enjoyed exchanging stories while looking out over the back garden and a bit of forest. Being able to do yoga on the veranda in the mornings was great, too. The wifi was better than most places I've stayed at. Indika showed us the sights at very reasonable tuk tuk rates, and was always helpful. Staying here really enhanced my time in Kandy, and I consider the folks here to be friends, not just hosts.
This hostel was good for meeting other guests. It is big with lots of communal areas so very sociable.
The place wasn't particularly clean or well-maintained but it was acceptable.
