pro: nice place for backpackers. Raveena and Guni were very nice and very helpful. con: you need a map to get there, it took us around 40 minutes to get there using Google Maps. best way is going near the Temple. Rooms are some old. The view is only from the dining area or from 1 expensive room. no toiletries.

The owners are incredibly welcoming and very friendly. We spent here 2 days and had a very nice and clean room with view on the forest, which was quite nice. One evening we had dinner at the guesthouse and got many different currys (chicken, jackfruit, egg plant,...), one better than the other and to a very reasonable price. Breakfast was...

It was an average home stay, not one of the best that we've seen in Sri Lanka but we only stayed for a night so it was alright. The family that runs this place is very sweet but my problem was with the cleanliness, it wasn't bad at all, but wasn't extraordinary either. Good for just 1 night stay since...

We stayed two nights at Raveena Guest House. It is a bit away from Main Street, approx 10min walk, which is very good because you get to experience the nature stay, the rooms are very quiet. They are perfectly clean, with very nice bathroom, each has its own balcony. Food is very good too, breakfast is big and included in...

As we walked up the path to the guesthouse we were struck by the stunning view and were immediately sure we had made the right accommodation choice. This family-run guesthouse is fantastic value for money. Our room was comfortable, the food (breakfast and dinner) was delicious and the hosts went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The...

We had a very big and nice room with a balcony and beautiful views - definitely the best room we had in the three weeks we spent in Sri Lanka! The guesthouse can be accessed through a shortcut and is very close to the city center (just take a flashlight at night). Raveena and her husband are great hosts! The...

Raveena and her husband run a lovely guesthouse with rooms starting from a very reasonable price for a solo traveller like myself. It is a short walk from Ella village and the al fresco dining area has a wonderful view of the surrounding hills including Ella Rock. Raveena's food is delicious Sri Lankan fare and I recommend dining in at...
