I spent three nights to Chandi Gaya Beach Guesthouse. I was already a bit disappointed by the many hostels in sri lanka. What I found in Chandi Gaya Beach Guesthouse, was the long missed Hostel life and excellent service. I was there during the second week of may (off season), so almost all shops and restaurants were closed. But I... More

Went to Gayana in a desperate evening search, after being let down by another overbooked property in Tangalle. On the recommendation of my tuk tuk driver, I met the hotel manager and bartered for the only room they had left. Paid and went up to find the most shockingly filthy hotel room I've ever seen. Only had a single lamp,... More

My partner & I stayed for 3 nights. We paid 3500lkr for a room with AC and sea view. Great value for what it was! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Wifi wasn't great though. We didn't really eat at the hotel- Tangalle town is just a 10 minute stroll away & there are amazing cheap, local places to eat.... More

Perfect place close to town center and with very nice rooms, excellent staff and really good price. Sea side cost more and offer the (quite loud) sound of waves.
