If you're coming from Tangalle bus station or city centre, make sure you continue walking along the main tourist street (parallel to a beach frequented by locals) until you reach the beach - it's quite a long way. The road opens up and is right next to a stunning beach, and that's where you'll find Kingfisher and many other guest...

We really enjoyed our stay there and got along well with Pretty and her German husband. They are very helpful and involved in the hostel life. We got (one of) the cheapest room(s) for 1000 which was very basic, no WiFi signal in the room and only an open beach shower, but it was all we needed, clean also and...

Terrible experience for me. The rooms are small and cost 1500 without bathroom. 20 m down the road I got a wonderful room with bathroom for 1000 RS. The place was not as clean as well. I can t recommend to go there.

Planned to stay for 3 nights (2000 per night) but left after one (2500). We were the only ones staying, the room was basic and very tired. The whole guest house needs to be updated, and we found the staff to be unhelpful. The lady working there was unfriendly, and sat by the desk in only a towel which was...

+ cheap place (negotiate the price, no room is really worth 2000 rupees a night) + very close to the sea with a beautiful beach + less crowded than some western beaches + good coconut and fruit offer closeby, market 15 minutes walking + they let me use their kitchen and prepare my own fruit and salad - loud neighbours...

Room was cheap and ok, cockroach in the room. The staff showed no interest at all. They even put a service charge on the agreed price for the room. We didn't try the restaurant. Location is excellent!

The room was okay and affordable if you get a good rate. But they charge different prices for rooms with the some quality. We never had the feeling to be welcomed at this place. And the owners try to get your money wherever they can. A roti for breakfast took 1,5 hours so we definitely can't recommend the restaurant. You...

We stayed two nights here, but turned out to be the worst stay of our trip yet. We agreed a room price on arrival after a quick look and were happy with our basic room. It then turned out that our sheet was dirty, so we got the linen changed. We also had to ask for towels and top sheets...then...

We had a really nice stay here, Pritty was very helpful and helped us to get around and see more of the beautiful Tangalle region and especially the animals. :) Highly recommend this place, plus some of the staff speak German. The room was nice and clean, with a fan, mosquito net and attached bathroom.
