Pros: Very kind and generous hosts. Cozy and quiet room - in fact, there is only one room at the property so you can't be disturbed by other guests and other properties as well since they are located at some distance down the hill. Nice breakfast and really huge dinner at reasonable price.
Cons: The property is located quite remotely uphill with shops and restaurants reachable in 30-minute walk only. On the one hand, it does offer pleasant views and serenity. On the other hand, you have to climb all the way up from city center via constantly ascending Kitelella road and steep stairs afterwards (tuktuk lets you skip only the first part). For me it was really exhausting to get back to the property after intensive walks to Ella's landmarks in heated surroundings - but if you are okay with that, this property should be a great choice.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: - everything was perfect. It was our best accommodation during our 7week Sri Lankan trip - amazing tasty breakfast - breathtaking views of the mountains and sunrise - lovely helpful friendly family - comfy and silent night sleep - best scooter rental - best laundry service Honestly. Everything was really perfect and I wouldnt change a thing!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: After a few weeks of hostels and sleepless nights I decided to treat myself to one night alone in the hills of Ella. The guesthouse is pretty high up (steep walk from the road) with a private front garden & stunning views. The room sleeps 1-3 people but perfect for solo travellers like myself or couples. The host welcomed me with a smile & prepared tea from the garden & snacks for my arrival. I opted for dinner and breakfast, both meals were a delicious feast! Malithis Lodge is a wonderful place if you need to recharge and escape the chaos.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff is really nice, they really take care of you and make best breakfast. Nice view!
Cons: You have to walk steps and few slopes to get there from the tuc tuc drop off which is a bit uncomfortable if you travel with a child.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: You have to stay here, they have PUPPIES! Ok now on a serious note: Great view (you can watch the sunrise literally from your bed), exceptionally nice family (always smiling, prepared us welcome drinks with a small snack and offered drinks in the afternoon, helped us figure out bus connections), delicious big breakfast, clean room (the blankets and pillows smelled very nice). The location will somewhat shorten your hike to Ella rock. We really enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to pick the same spot next time.
Cons: Poor wifi connection. Blankets could be bigger and thicker,as it can get a bit cold at night.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was the most marvelous view of our holidays, we would love To stay more. The room is nice with a big bathroon all very clean. The home made breakfast is awesome. The family is very kind and makes you Feel like home.
Cons: Nothing
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The view was AMAZING here. Little homestay attached to family property. The family were very sweet and friendly. Arranging scooter hire for us was a massive help as your right up in the mountains. Different breakfast everyday and had dinner there after country was on lock down. Also had a pot of tea made for us after we got caught in a downpour (nice touch) They offer laundry service for an additional charge great help. Wish we could have stayed longer. Can't recommend enough would definitely go back there
Cons: Nothing really...
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Clean room and bathroom. Nice view. Good Sri Lankan breakfast.
Cons: The place is a bit up the hill so you get sweaty walking up to the house. The tuk-tuk drivers ask for 500rp to get you from center to the stairs from where you have to walk. If you haggle you can get a rids for 200rp - don't agree to 500, that is just too much. The owner doesn't speak English very well which made communication difficult.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The hosts are wonderful and the experience staying with a priceless.
Cons: It was a hike to reach the homestay and I really had to negotiate with the tuk-tuk drivers to take me to the top.of the hill...... but that's part of the experience, so not so bad

9.0 Excellent
Pros: We had the room on the second floor with the most amazing view of Ella rock! The breakfast is really good, such a nice way to start the day. Would definitely recommend this place.
Cons: The Wi-Fi in all of Ella is pretty bad so make sure you expect that and don't get frustrated about it. That's how it should be in the beautiful jungle!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The view from my room was amazing! Looking directly at Ella Rock whilst eating breakfast in the morning was so peaceful and spectacular. Gajith and his wife were wonderful hosts. Gajith took me to Diyaluma Falls and when my flip flops broke, he insisted I wear his on our climb down whilst he went barefoot. He then stopped in the nearby town on our way back to Ella so that I could buy a new pair! So amazing!
Cons: The only small thing that could have been better was the pressure of the water in the shower.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Location walking distance from Ella train station around 15 mins. Off the Main Street so good access. Also on the way to little Adam peak so convenient
Cons: The property was not fully built. A few levels yet to be built. Inside was rough and ready but I guess for backpackers it may be ok. I think you can find better elsewhere but I can’t say how much the others would cost?
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Nice clean modern room with a comfortable bed. The owner was super nice and accommodating.
Cons: Maybe and extra toilet roll in the bathroom would be helpful. But overall nothing bad about this place.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: What a wonderful place. The room was clean, the hot water shower was wonderful. The view was incredible! Waking up to the view of the mountains was awesome!
Cons: I would have loved to have had some tea and coffee in the room! We weren't offered any tea or coffee either. I wanted to sit and drink a cup of tea on the balcony.
2.5 Mediocre
Pros: Affordable
Cons: We picked this property based off its reviews and for the view. Our room was on the first floor and was blocked by plants, no view. We booked a room with a balcony, when I asked the lady who checked us in about it she said they were full. We did not see a single other person there on our 2 night stay. There was hair on the walls in our bathroom upon checking in. It is close to town, but it’s a slippery and steep walk to the guest house and we would avoid walking down it when it was raining heavily. All the other guest houses we’ve stayed at the staff has been amazing and so accomodating! This staff was never around and not helpful. It is right across from the mosque so be prepared to be woken up at 5am every morning.
10.0 Excellent

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Nice view, really good Sri Lankan breakfast, simple but clean room with mosquito net. Location is near the main road, but not too noisy. Staff was really helpful organising our daytrips. Good value for money.
Cons: Although the staff made an effort to organise a guide and tuktuk, the communication was a bit hard and led to misunderstandings due to language difficulties.

Pros: The family were extremely friendly and attentive, making you feel very welcome. The room was a good size, with a comfortable bed. Really enjoyed our stay.
Cons: The property is a bit far out of Ella, to get a tuk tuk only costs 400rps each way but it’s an extra cost to consider. However the location is quiet and relaxing instead of the noisy centre of Ella.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The patio was overlooking a green valley with the occasional local walking by. Off the beaten track or actually on the beaten track rather than the road. A quite retreat from the busy Ella.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly host, trying to help us out with everything we wanted without being intrusive. The food was excellent and the quantity was more than we could manage. The place we liked too, away from all the party going on in Ella with the option to join the mainstream whenever we wanted.
