Need accommodation in Galle for the cricket!

I am looking for cheap and cheerful (not too cheap!) accommodation in Galle from 25 March to 31 March.

Guesthouse or similar would be great. Having some trouble locating a place close enough to the ground. Any advice?

Hi Mark,

Welcome to TripAdvisor.

Have a look at Unawatuna (10-15 mins bus to the ground) or Hikkaduwa (20 mins bus to the ground). Both have plenty of budget accommodation, but don't wait too long. Accommodations are quickly filling up with English fans.
