I stayed here for two nights as a solo female budget traveller and it was the nicest place I've stayed in Sri Lanka so far. It's family run and the owners are kind, helpful and friendly. I felt really safe and I was very well looked after, offered fresh cinnamon tea and help with train times. The whole place felt warm and friendly, and they burned incense which smelled gorgeous. My room was a good size, really clean and comfortable with A/C and hot shower and clean mosquito net, plus a private balcony. Really great value for money.

The location is also absolutely perfect, right in the heart of the fort. You can walk everywhere and it's quite well lit at night.

Would definitely recommend.

Unexpected stay at this hotel since we were double booked elsewhere. We were not expecting to stay behind a fish spa and jewellery shop but we were pleasantly surprised and found this quite quaint!
Staff were lovely and helped us with our air-con and shower problems (our own stupidity...) without any bother, and got up to let us in when we returned after 10pm!
The room was clean and comfortable with mosquito nets, wifi and air-con.
Location was great, within the fort and close to lighthouse beach.
On our day of departure the staff looked after our bags all day.
Can't fault it - but don't expect more than your room for amenities (which wasn't a problem for us).

Guesthouse in the heart of Galle Fort, so the location is great!
It's cheap and it has all the basics but our room didn't have any window!
The staff is nice but not very helpful. We asked a few questions like where to go swimming or where to rent a bike. They didn't know and didn't care. So if you are on a budget that's fine but don't expect a comfy bed or a nice hotel.
The free wifi stopped working after midnight.
Warning: they have a curfew at 10pm and close the main door so you can't go for a late dinner or drinks!

Room Tip: Avoid the room on the ground floor as it didn't have a window

Very nice place and great people. Clean room, nice bathroom and a great balcony in a quiet area right in the fort district. And all this for a real fair price (about $15). I will definitely talk about it and strongly recommend it.

The Villa is actually at the top of a Jewelries store, we called ahead and made a booking with Shafa. He is very friendly and helpful. We got a room upstairs at the front. The room has a double bed with mosquito net and an attached toilet with hot water. The room and toilet is very tight, you can only go in for shower and sleep. Luckily there is a nice balcony out front where we can sit and relax. The location is perfect, inside the Fort and close to the beach. Shafa was very nice, he recommended us a restaurant for local food. We went and tried, it was delicious. Don't forget to ask him when you are there.
