It's a perfect place to relax and enjoy the surroundings of Hikkaduwa. Easy access to the beach and food outlets. The owner and the staff are friendly and helpful. Reasonable price for the available facilities.

The location is perfect for all purposes, be it swimming, snorkeling, scuba-diving or mere sightseeing. The beach is literally 2 minutes away. The owner and his family and very kind and helpful people; hence all the terms&conditions can be easily negotiated. The rooms are roughly at par with other available places in terms of both price and quality. The traditional English breakfast was tasty, but we preferred local food on all subsequent days, hence can't say much about the breakfast variety. Initially planned to stay for 1 night only and move on to a cheaper place, but liked this one, hence stayed for the total of 6 nights there. The slight drawback of the place/location is its the noisiness. Galle road has lots of traffic since around 4 A.M. in the morning and the railway is right behind the adjacent building. Also, there are construction works on 3rd floor of the building during the daytime, which further add up to the noise. If you are a light sleeper, you might need a more secluded place. Otherwise, I would certainly suggest to go for this one. Check out all available rooms before deciding, they're quite different in terms of sizes and facilities. Feel free to negotiate, Tilak (the owner) is a good man and a fair businessman as well. Many overpriced restaurants nearby, if you want to save money and experience real local cuisine (for around 1-2 dollars per person), check out the places where all the locals eat. The sanitary standards are only a bit lower there, but the food is more genuinely local and the price will be 5-10 times lower than in fancy "Western-oriented" cafes and restaurants. The local marketplace (bazaar) is also very good if you want to buy and cook your own food. Fresh fish can be bought from fishermen in the harbor right behind the bazaar in the morning between 6 and 7 A.M.

Room Tip: Check out all available rooms first, ask the owner if in doubt

We were on a family trip and stayed one night at YKD rest. Owner was friendly and helpful. Had meals on a open area on third floor with the breeze of see. In the morning owner took us in to beach and experienced feeding a see turtle. He arranged us a boat ride for low price. It was a great experience. Room was nice and clean. Price is low. If you are looking for a budget hotel with everything, I recommend it without a doubt.

Room Tip: If you have enough money, select a AC room, because Hikkaduwa is a hot city.

YKD is located about 5 minute walk from the bus/train station, opposite a great snorkelling/swimming beach and about 1.5k from the easier surf breaks. Tilak and his wife make you feel very at home. Nothing is too much for them to organise. Great big breakfasts and spacious rooms. There is some traffic noise as it is located on the main road – but you only need to go across the road to the beach for some peace and quiet. Great base to explore the south west.

It was very quiet place with all the required facilities including AC, hot water and a little pantry. Bed covers were clean and room was neat for a couple. There is nothing you could have for such a price in that area.

Room Tip: The suite is a good choice
