We stayed there for 3 nights, and we were, overall, very happy with our stay. After an initial problem with our room, we were very quickly moved to another room, and the owners were very friendly in doing so. They also offered a very reasonable laundry service, and the shop at the front sold very cheap, cold water.

We stayed here for a few days during our visit to Hikkaduwa. We arrived really late after the long trip from Daniyaya and luckily the room in the basement was free and the owner offered a very good price. The room was nice, clean and relatively quiet (the railway passes about 50m behind the back of the hotel, however the... More

We booked this hotel for 2 nights, however we checked out after the first night. I've read really good reviews about YKD but I think the luck lies in the room you are allocated. We stayed in room number 6. The room itself was spacious and clean (although a little drab) and more than enough for people wanting just a... More

Thanks for your review. I think your booking with the name Emma Price because I can not find booking with your name or email. I feel sorry and apologies the things happened to you but as a gentlemen you should have informed me before checking out and write it to Tripadvisor . Then you can write my reaction in Tripadvisor...

Stayed here for 2 nights in suite. Room was very clean, with AC and fridge, good wi-fi. Just 2 minutes walk to the beach. Sometimes it was very loud because of railways near the hotel, but luckily they were no often. My wife and I really enjoyed this place, and we will stay here again in april

We had booked 2 rooms for 2 nights but on arrival we were told only 1 room was available. But without a hesitation they were able to clear a room for us.

Really central location, right on the main road (quite a lot of traffic early in the morning), 500m to the main train station and a couple minutes walk to the beach. Rooms are big and have good and clean bathroom Restaurants and small shops are just around the corner Good value for money

Stayed here 2 weekends ago! We upgraded our room to an air con room which was £18 a night (3,500 rupees, which is quite expensive for Sri Lankan price). Got to our room and didn't think it was worth the price as it was quite small and basic and the air con might as well not have been on because... More

Brilliant location in heart of Hikka. Clean hostel with spacious rooms & en suite bathrooms. Our biggest problem was the fact there are no mosquito nets. Within a few hours all 8 of us had been bitten. We paid for a/c but did not realise it was 500 rupees per night, this caused discrepancy when we were checking out. We... More
