Explore Jaffna from this convenient guesthouse, centrally located in a quiet, green part of town. Price is per double room and there are several rooms available. A/Cis optional.

The space

We've stayed in Joseph's many times when visiting Jaffna. One of the older guesthouses in Jaffna and centrally located, it's a really convenient spot to use as a home base when exploring Jaffna town. It's got 8 rooms, all with attached bathrooms and there's a shared dining area on the first floor. There's free parking, a little library and even wifi… what else do you need?

Interaction with guests

Mr. Joseph, your host, worked for a number of international non-governmental organisations during the war, so this man speaks perfect English and has more stories than he cares to tell. Retired, he's been hosting guests for years now, together with his wife and two assistants. They serve breakfast and dinner (no lunch), can take guests on tours in their tuktuk and they rent out bikes. Last but not least, Joseph loves his 3 friendly dogs, which you're sure to meet when you're there.

The place itself is fine. The room was clean and basic but exactly what you need. A 10 minute walk will lead you to multiple little restaurants. The famous Hindu temple is a 15 minute walk max. People around in jaffna are very friendly but unfortunately the owners of this place are very reserved and not welcoming. They don't smile and it feels like they don't like to work in this business. We arranged a tuk tuk with them (and paid for it already) to take us to the railway station in the early morning (5.30 am). But when we came down with our bags on time there was no one around. We knocked on the front door a couple of times and finally the owner peaked behind the curtains and didn't react at all. The gate was closed so finally we had to climb over the wall because otherwise we missed our train to Colombo! Luckily we catched a tuk tuk so we were just on time, not thanks to the owners though!

(English content below) Joseph的客棧在好些旅遊指南其實已上榜,但荷蘭朋友讓我有個方便的方法跟他訂房。Joseph至少養了一條可愛的臘腸狗,而我的房內有個如他高大的衣架,足讓我方便在室內晾衣,配合電吊扇效果更佳。不過客棧離市中心較遠,如果乘大巴前來,請在到市中心前下車。此外免費wi-fi只限地下/一樓。 Joseph's place indeed has been listed in some travel guides. However, our Dutch friends allow us to book his place in a convenient way. His place is a bit far away from main bus terminus and please note if you arrive by long distance bus. But the main railway station is within walking distance. I got a great hanger just as tall as Joseph and it is a good thing for drying clothes, especially with a ceiling fan. Please note his cute little dachshund! Please also note the free wi-fi only works at first / ground floor.

Neverbeen User Profile

Neverbeen offers a wide variety of rare homes off the beaten track, from fisherman's huts and tree houses to heritage homes and tea estates. Our team hand-picks and visits every home and meet all hosts to make ensure guests have a positively memorable stay in places they've never been.

We provide travellers and home owners in challenging locations with access to one another, by offering communication services, online marketing services and tourism training, so that locals can make a living off their home and travellers can get to stay in places they have never been.

As such, Neverbeen works for a world in which everyone has the chance to earn income by renting out their home, regardless of language, internet access and tourism experience.

In Sri Lanka, Dishan manages our growing group of homes in cooperation with our scouts, while Rohan creates listings and provides service. In Amsterdam, Marten works out international growth plans. Our team of in-house programmers is constantly developing the platform itself and Ernst & Young does our finances.

The first country we're active in is Sri Lanka, a beautiful country with many undiscovered places to stay. Due to it recently having opened up to tourism after decades of conflict, it is a great place to start and pilot the Neverbeen concept. We plan to expand to ten countries before the end of 2017.
