This was my second time staying at backpack Lanka, they never disappoint. Nice people, simple clean room with AC and free breakfast. Great place to stay if you'd like to be close to the Gangaramaya Buddhist Temple, as it is within walking distance
The service was super friendly and helpful especially for tips concerning sightseeing and food! The toilet was clean and in the evening the place was perfect to hang out.
Perfect place, perfect location, Perfect staff
The staff were so helpful and made our stay that much more enjoyable. particularly Ruban, Praveen and Sigore (sorry for misspelling !). Such relaxed and kind people. the whole place was very clean and extremely good value for dollar. A short walk into kandy that leads right to the lake. Relaxing by the pool in the morning was a great start to everyday. The breakfast was wonderful as well! Highly Highly recommend

Nothing too much trouble - good advice, helped with booking tuk tuk and advice on train time. very good room- i was in private room- with lots of space, good en suite and hot water always there.
