It's kind of hard to find a hostel in Sri Lanka which is still in the backpacker range when it comes to price. The staff is relaxed and will help you as much as they can. Beds where good and the balcony is a nice extra. Location is well centered and if you're lucky you can join the staff for...

Great food, great atmosphere The decor is very appropriate and homely The food was fresh and tasty and didn't take too long to arrive The price was a bit above average for food but the drinks (specially the juices) were exorbitant.

Popped in here for drinks. Could have died of thirst waiting. Waited over 15 mins for a coke and a soda. Had to go up and ask where they were. Waiters did not seem bothered. Decor inside was fairly unique but would not go again. Will not be returning.

Great choice, we had the curd, fruit, muesli and pancakes. Nice coffee as well. Good internal space and nice courtyard for lounging. If you are in the fort, this is a great pitstop and shelter from the sun to regroup. Also handy that you could pay by credit card.

There was no air con in our room but there was a fan which was better than nothing (also had mosquito nets!) The layout of the upstairs rooms was weird as you had to walk through one bedroom to get to ours but that really wasn't too much of an issue. We had a balcony with seating area and clotheshorse...

It's located in the best place and the people who work here are...

Great little hostel in the heart of the old town within the fort walls. As well as dorms the hostel has two private double rooms on the top floor. We stayed in these two double rooms which are both lovely and have great a/c, very comfortable beds, good showers and balcony/outdoor sitting areas. The Pedlars inn has a very relaxed...

Comfy hostel with two private double rooms. We staid in the double room with private veranda. It was so hot we could not sit for a long time on the veranda though... Clean room with shabby chic furniture. Maybe a little overpriced (as every tourist place in Sri Lanka...). Very nice owner/receptionist. Because the A/C did not work properly, he...

From experience in high end hotels on the south it probably can't get any better period :). The rooms are clean, tastefully decorated yet minimalistic, hot water, showers & plumming that work perfectly, no bugs on sight, no nasty smell, no fungus or rust... Of course no white gloves and bell boys either (after all it is a hostel), but...

Great stay inside the fort walls, surrounded by nice cafes & shops, everything is in walking distance & there is plenty of tuk tuks to take you to Jungle beach outside the (should only cost 500 rupees one way). Get up at 6am to walk the fort & see the beautiful sunrise!
