9.2 Excellent
Pros: Lovely family. DO stay for dinner :)
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The hosts were really friendly and we got a delicious candle light dinner (due to power outage in the area). We also did a tour to the rainforest high lands with our host, who was highly motivated and answered all our questions.
Cons: Except the power outage - which was not their fault - everything was fine.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: We really enjoyed the dinner here and the tour they organized to the rainforest! We thought everything was reasonably priced. The hosts are also very nice. The breakfast will be enough to get you to lunch. The wifi was also surprisingly fast. The shower was also hot.
Cons: A multi-outlet would be great! And it was not a problem for us, but if you hate/are sensitive to any kinds of insects/arachnids then you might struggle as some ants and a spider or two joined us bc of the heavy rain.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: hosts were so nice and showed us the area! we had a very nice rainforest tour with the host and the food was delicious!,
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The host is very welcoming and speaks fair good English. The food is great especially pancakes with fruits. The homestay is surrounded with beautiful nature, rice fields. You can take a walk to waterfall or just walk along the road and spot birds and lizards if you are lucky.
Cons: The guesthouse is in very humid place so that it is difficult to dry towels. There is a stinky smell in the room because of humidity. There could be a squeegee mop in the bathroom that could be used after taking a shower not to slip on the wet floor.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: The whole complex is amazing. Very idyllic and you can already see a lot of animals from the dining area/the pool.
Cons: There is still some construction work. Sometimes we had the feeling that the owners are too profit oriented. The organized tour through the forest is nice but because of the quite high price the value is too low.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location next to the Sinharaja rainforest entrance. A garden with ponds and lots of wildlife. Two types of kingfishers, water monitor... observable from the room, the restaurant, the nice pool... Very nice and helpful staff. Very good guides for rainforest trips.
Cons: Mosquito nets would be great or windows with mosquito nets..so the windows could stay open at night to listen to the sound of nature.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Location and swimming pool were superb. Breakfast phantastic. You can't beat the location, it's a nice and comfortable Hotel with a budget option also; there's a restaurant and staff will organise walking tours through the forest. Forest entrance is right outside the door.
Cons: Minor thing: wifi didn't work. But it didn't kill us to be without internet for 2 days.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great place in the wilderness with ample facilities for a comfortable stay . The staff was friendly and helpful. The place was spotlessly clean with a very good breakfast.
Cons: The continuous rains have washed off the access roads and construction of the roads too made access to the property difficult but the host arranged the transport for our convenience . But the walk from the parking lot to the property was also a fun one the surrounding landscape was full of sight seeing potential.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Such a beautiful place to stay! The staff and manager was so nice and helpful. Sinharaja rainforest entrance is next to the hotel :)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The setting of Sinharaja Forest Edge is exactly as its title suggests, you walk straight out of the restaurant into the rainforest for tours. Kingfishers, horned lizards and the sounds of the forest surround this clean and well maintained guest house where the staff take care of your every need and the food is some of the best available in Sri Lanka. The breakfast included in the stay is HUGE and the guided tours they offer are excellent. We did a full day trek with 2 waterfalls and around 12km of hiking. This was one of the top stays we’ve had in Asia over the last 3 years.
Cons: Even though WiFi is in the description, the weather makes receiving signal very difficult. Rather factor in that you won’t be contactable, and just enjoy being disconnected for a few nights!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The location of this property was a highlight for us, it’s on the border of the rainforest with amazing views from the rooms and restaurant. Lots of birds and wildlife close by. The room is basic but had very thing we needed and was comfortable. The pool is also beautiful. We booked a 14km rainforest tour through them as well which even though it was a little more expensive, it was amazing and the guide was knowledgeable, engaging and spoke perfect English. Would recommend a stay here

Pros: Proximity to the forest

5.8 Okay
Pros: Staff were friendly and helpful. Nature hike was a lot of fun. Food was decent.
Cons: The beds were 2 single beds joined together. Windows dirty, blinds were a huge hassle to open and close and the bathroom door not functional as well as very noisy. No place to dry towels and wet clothes, especially after a hike in the rain. When you pay 170 dollars a night basic comforts are expected
5.8 Okay
Pros: Entire area was filled with flora and fauna that was a unbelievable picturesque environment with calm and quit. Eco Chalets were cleaned and was a lovely place to stay. I ordered a cake for celebrate my wife's birthday and they served it in interesting way. Restaurant staff were friendly and food also very delicious.
Cons: I booked one night in full board basis and I asked for early check in, but they ignored it and said previous day all the chalets are booked and until the guests are check out they can't confirm the early check in . They asked us to check in at 2.00 p.m and we arrived on time. While we were having our welcome drink they asked to have the lunch immediately even before going to the chalet as the restaurant is close by 2.30 p.m. We argued with them that we were not informed that our meals start with the lunch. Then they changed it to start from the dinner. Another worst experience was I had a accident with splinter of porcelain in the body lotion. While I applying it my right hand index finger was punctured by small porcelain splinter and started to bleeding. We informed to the reception and asked to come with medical attendant. But the Accountant came with cotton wool and plasters. Then I asked to fetch something to wash the wound. Then he brought normal saline bottle. I asked him to inform this incident to a relevant manager. (photos are attached) In the following day I went to settle the bill, I told our experience in the hotel was not that much good. One gentlemen in that section told me " one of our executive was attend with the medical treatment"( ACCOUNTANT, with his bare hands ,cotton wool and plasters). If that splinter punctured my eye area while I am applying who are going to treat it???? AT LEAST THEY DIDN'T APOLOGIZES FOR THEIR FAULTS. ..

5.8 Okay
Pros: The view. The walk in the forest.
Cons: Once your are in the park you are stuck. And there is not a lot more to do than walk in the forest. Food was a bummer. Restaurant like a cantine. The bread smelled like "don't eat this". They try to make up but they cannot deliver high standards at such a distant place. Maybe we missed the eco part?

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved this place - but it wouldn't be for everyone, We were told leeches came included in the price! It was nice to be without wifi for a couple of days and no phone signal. Lovely clean room with big patio doors to view the pretty garden in front, helpful and friendly staff and delicious food in the restaurant. Best of all was the guide, Hemal who took us out for an early birdwatching tour and then a full morning in the rainforest, a true gent with a wealth of knowledge. The newly built swimming pool was lovely and refreshing after a long morning hiking in the jungle.
Cons: The leeches in the rainforest!!!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Ideal place for Singharaja rain forest visit. It's in Deniyaya town so access is easy for any vehicles. Owner arranged 2 tuk tuks for us to take to the singharaja entrance( private vehicles cannot reach the Pitadeniya entrance as there is a narrow bridge. You have to park the vehicles about 1.5 km away from the entrance and walk or take tuk tuk).He is very helpful and tell you everything you want( including the tuk tuk charges, guide charge) Modern rooms with all amenities. Hot water and air con are not present in every room, so you have to ask for it. Well maintained pool which is refreshing after the hike. Food is very nice and they will make anything you request. The caretaker girl Nandini was very helpful. There are 2 dogs and one is very friendly with the kids. Overall very happy and relaxing stay.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The rooms were big and comfortable with a high-class bathroom. The staff was extremely helpful and polite, everything was possible. The food, whatever we wanted, was really good and home-cooked. We stayed two nights and no meal (including breakfast) was the same. The pool is a great addition, it's also really clean. We also really enjoyed playing with the two dogs (cute domesticated healthy puppies), and it was obvious that if a guest wouldn't want the attention of a dog, the staff would fix it. Altogether this hotel is a perfect and comfortable base for visiting the Sinharaja rainforest.
Cons: The Wi-Fi was a bit slow.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Wonderful place to stay. We paid a bit extra to stay in the best room which had a great view into the tree canopy. Loads of wildlife came to us to be photographed from the balcony, we just had to sit and wait for it to appear. The lady manager Chaminda was really helpful and sorted out our trip to the rainforest and our onward transport by taxi, her mum did the cooking and the meals were simply gorgeous. Our only regret was that we didn't stay at least another day to give us longer to look around the local area by foot.
Cons: Decor in the rooms a bit dated. didn't bother us but I imagine that some people could be disappointed.

Pros: Great location outside of the town and pretty little huts to sleep in. Nice and calm place I would always visit again. Still close to town but absolute rainforest feeling around the hostel. There was always staff around to help or serve nice rixe and curry for dinner. All in all great project to support!

Pros: Everything was just awesome. Owner is best and protector of nature, the vibe and the house where we stayed was just as perfect and simple with a nice family ambiance. Keep going on your project Sydney you the best!
5.8 Okay
Pros: Beautiful view.
Cons: I got an "upgrade" to stay in the villa (homestay sinaraja) as the hostel was fully booked. Therfore I hab to walk 1 km longer each way. Kitchen was dirty, wifi didn't work, no response to my message before I arrived.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The sorroundings were beautfiul. Many waterfalls to explore and the Sinharaja Rainforest is easy to day trip to. The Rural Jungle Hostel is a convenient place to organise a tour to the rainforest.
7.9 Good
Pros: The rooms were great. Had a true, wild feel to them. I the evening I could sit in my room and watch various bats catching flies right outside my door. Through the day, there was always an array of different birds to watch. Friendly staff, they are sweet and helpful in the bakery upstairs. Planned on staying 2 nights, ended up staying 4.
Cons: I arrived late back (around midnight) one night to find the place locked. Luckily, I was with a local who knew the phone number so it wasn't a problem to solve as the guy from the bakery swiftly came up opened up. A bit of prior warning that this would happen would have been helpful. I guess they're not used to guests coming back at this time. Other than this, I have no complaints.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Nice place , good location ,great and cheap foods from the restaurant
Cons: The WiFi didn’t work
6.3 Good
Pros: The homestay, so not the hostel, was nice and clean. The owner was very kind and offered the tour for a good price. In the homestay there was a nice atmosphere to talk to other guests and we were chilling in the common area in the evening. The food of the restaurant was also really nice.
Cons: I didn't like the communication that much. I booked the hostel but the owner was not there due to a stay in the hospital. The doors were closed when I got there and in the belonging restaurant nextdoor, they didn't speak English. This is normally no problem but I felt that they didn't make a big effort to try to understand. In the end I talked to Sidney, the owner on the phone. He was very kind and offered a room in the homestay, since there were more people. The homestay was 15min walking from there. I went by tuktuk with the son (I guess) of the owner of the restaurant. He dropt me, unlocked the door, let me in, locked the door again and gave me the key. There was no explanation and I felt a little left alone there. Later another couple came and explained. A little more communication (even without English) and showing around would have been helpful. Ultimately, I also booked the tour to the rainforest, that Sidney could organize. Also here communication was not clear and they told me to wait 15 min, but in the end I waited 1,5h and had trouble to make it to my next destination by bus.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: I can recommend this place to anybody looking for a real connection to Lokals in the middle of the the beautiful rainforest and to make a difference to people and the protection of your environment. Incredibly sweet and helpful staff, great food and sunrise through the window of your simple hut in nature in the morning. I wish Sidney (the owner) all the best for his social and environmental projects. Thanks for organizing the trip trough the sinharaja rainforest for us.
6.7 Good
Cons: Not told that rural jungle backpackers cottages are shut down and we were transferred to the other property. Was told by driver who took us there that they were closed
