The people were great and really helpful and fore the price we paid is was a good and clean place to stay the only complaint I had was that the fan in our room didn't work to good.

Obliging. We especially liked the firm mattresses and mosquito nets. Helpful with food.

Seetha's Hostel was our first stop after we landed late one night in Sri Lanka. Except this isn't Seetha's Hostel anymore. A person called Nuwan has taken it over and all the good reviews we read seemed an exaggeration. We appreciate Nuwan being in touch with us but the stay was the worst experience we've had on any holiday. Though we thought we had a private bathroom, we were shocked to see all the other guests (about 10) using it! The bathroom itself was in a poor condition. The room was congested with no hangers or even hooks to keep our clothes. We had to hang them over our suitcase. Sadly, we couldn't sleep all night either. The large room windows were right at the portico where other guests were talking till 2am! We finally had to ask them to be a little considerate and allow us to sleep. The worst part is the bed I was on had bed bugs. My entire body was covered in bites for the rest of the holiday!! I'm glad the rest of my family didn't get affected. Nuwan was understanding but it would have been better if he was there when we arrived. The boy he has to help doesn't know English so it's impossible to communicate with him to explain our difficulty. I didn't intend to write this review as Nuwan seemed to have a genuine problem but what ticked me off was when we were politely telling Nuwan the issues, he retorted "anyway you'll have paid less." We in fact had paid a premium because it's the holiday season and even if it's at a lower cost, I'm sure any traveler deserves a bathroom with a working health faucet and a bed free of bed bugs. Thankfully, we had booked only for one night so we put the bad experience behind us and continued our journey.

Seetha was full but her Sister in law has à great guest house. We appreciated the warmth of that place and will recommend it. The fare By taxi to the air port done by his son was too expensive.
