Score from 22 reviews Very good
Very friendly and helpful staff. Pretty views. Free breakfast.
Quite a long walk up steep hills from town.
As a couple we had reserved a double room a few months earlier. Having heard of others having issues with private rooms we called a few hours prior to our arrival to confirm they were holding a double private room. I was told that they were. Well, we arrived and was told they only had dorm rooms available. After calls to the manager and me getting a a little angry , twenty minutes later we did get the room we reserved. Avoid the hassle if you are a couple traveling. We moved to the Mountain View the next day, and it was cheaper, cleaner, private bath, and better location to town.
Hanti & Dilrukhsi who are the lokal hostesses will see to your every need. These two ladies make your stay a pleasure with their smiles and good humor. They work very hard long hours and have a very competent method of managing the hostel. They seem to enjoy the work which give the place a generally positive atmosphere. Thank you ladies!
Nothing bad tosay about this place. Oh yes, please ask the neighbors not to burn their trash!
When im arrive no body give me clean towel . tissue paper perhaps busy or finish I don't know and hope next give little shower gel at least im not running around to super market buy shower gel.
Frandly fresh air like stay in my home special during day time.when every body gone. And this sister and indika very kind with me.thanks so much
The down town hostel in Kandy is more then just another hostel. For me, it felt like home, for the time I was there...
That's a nice hostel, with good ambience and amazing and helpful staff. Breakfast is good and included in the price.
Owner very helpful, good atmosphere with other travellers, laundry at a good price, and a fridge to put a couple of beers at the end of the day.
Location is far from downtown, but easily serviced by Tuk Tuk (daytime rate 150lkr, night 200lkr from the bridge at the end of the road - add 50lkr to each tops). 4bd dorm at the lower floor has no door so loud.
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.
