In the interest of being balanced, the positives first. The actual bedroom had a big comfy bed, a/c, in a great location - just off the beach, the food was also good and it's a lot cheaper than its neighbouring accommodation. Now the more memorable part, you don't accrue so many 'terrible' ratings for no reason. The bathroom was FILTHY... More

I left after I saw the rooms and surrounding area- garbage and dirt outside as well as inside. The bathroom was dirty, the toilett didn't really function and I woulnd't think about eating in that restaurant... On the backside of the rooms is some kind of banana garden but it smells horribly and it looked like they didn't clean the... More

The owner was friendly, his mom cooks very well but enjoys torturing travellers with hot food eventhough was required to prepare it mild. The rooms could be cleaner, we had to ask for a dustbin, toilet paper and to change our bed sheets. They were reconstructing their premises so it was kind of messy.

Although Dinu's is in a good location, don't expect too much from a quality point of view. Our sheets were dirty and the pillow cases were stained. Our door couldn't lock and I think we paid over the odds for what we got. It is ok for a quick stop over but I wouldn't recommend staying here for long.

this is backpacker standard. do not expect anything than basics. the benefit is the location, very much on the beach, so you can walk or run in the morning, or you can surf as well. they can make very nice smoothie for you. rooms are OKish, non ACed, expect insects and lizards everywhere, but cmon...this is why you are here...

Firstly, I'm not a picky traveller expecting luxury, I visited Sri Lanka staying in budget accommodation, no frills. My boyfriend and I stayed here for only 1 night after reading a good review in our rough guide. Sadly we didn't have wifi to check trip advisor first! This place is an absolute rip off.

We stayed here for a couple of nights, there were 5 of us travelling together and this place was perfect for what we needed. Cheap and cheerful, it was a little grubby but so affordable. Up one end of the beach but still only a few steps before you hit sand! It was a little noisy with music from other... More
