    Friendly Owners”

    The owners were so friendly and helpful. I received lots of good Sri Lanka travel advice, along with free coffee and chocolate. Puncha is a few km from the city center, but it’s quieter because of the location and a 12 Rp city bus gets you to the center quickly.

    I came back again because it's such a great place with lovely hosts. It's also a good location because if you leave Kandy you have to go to a bus or train station anyway and the cheapest and most convenient way to do that is a local bus, just down the street :)

    I had a good time staying in Puncha hostel. The host is really helpful and speaks really good English. It's not only like a hostel but more like my home in Sri Lanka. The food is really amazing and the room is clean. Although It's not in city center but it's really convenient to go to everywhere by public transportation.
