Visit Ella from this well-kept home stay next to the charming railway station.

Price is for a double bedroom with attached bathroom.

The space

Kusuma’s home is a big well-kept house right next to the Ella Station. It’s a two story home with four spacious rooms with private bathrooms, which are rented out by the room. There’s a balcony overlooking the railway tracks and you can enjoy the garden that Ms. Kusuma keeps tidy. Nice place.

Interaction with guests

Ms. Kusuma recently retired after having worked in the garment industry as a supervisor. Now she hosts guests in her house on full-time basis. She speaks a bit of English, can help arrange trips and cooks great Sri Lankan meals such as hoppers, sambol and curries.

We stayed only one night in Ella,the room was clean and good.our host stayed up for us because we arrived late. Maybe the delicious breakfast was bit expensive. Thank you for your hospitality.

we've spent three nights in this place and honestly we could, would have cancelled the two last nights. the place is well located but this appears to be it's only advantage. the room was quite old and not clean. we found it quite expensive for the service compared to other places we've been in sri lanka. moreover, if you read that the cast system is abolished, you'll see here that it is still up to date, as apparently,the housekeeper can only sit on the floor...therfore staying in this place means you approve. last but not least, the place is handled by an agency and not by the owner itself. WE STONGLY DONT RECOMMEND!!

We had a very nice night here, Mrs Kusuma is very nice, the bed and shower are great, very near to train station and town center. But the road to the house is all the way up and stairs, so a little hard for me to carry my suitcase.

We truly enjoyed our 2 nights stay in Ella: the house is lovely and the family were very nice. English is sufficient to get around and we were grateful for our host to have arranged a taxi to the Natural park and tuk this to the tea plantation. The house is clean and the rooms are cosy. A true plus on our experience was the little restaurant 3 min away from the house (called Matey's place or Sth like that) where we enjoyed the best food of Sri Lanka cooked by a lovely couple. I would recommend staying at this place

We had a great stay at Kusuma's. She took great care to ensure we were comfortable, made a delicious and well priced breakfast for us very early before catching the train, and served delicious welcome coffee and snack. The climb is steep from the main road, but they are re-building some stairs now to make it easier. Nice place for good value away from noise of the numerous places on the main road, yet only a few minutes walk from plenty of restaurants and shops. Recommend!!
