We stayed in 2 rooms. The room upstairs was dark & dusty. The one downstairs slightly brighter, but noisy hotel staff disturbed our sleep at night. Food on the other hand was quite good. I had the tastiest freshly-made garlic soup here. The cook who was also the waiter was generous in his servings. The owner on the other hand was a bit of a stiff neck. For USD60 per night, it's not worth staying here.

Small Town Ella
The town itself is nothing more than a nondescript main drag with several restaurants, Ayurvedic spa treatment facilities, small markets, small hotels and guesthouses. On one side, a road leads to little Adams peak, the Arched Bridge view and tea plantations. The draw here is the gorgeous mountain setting, the cooler weather and great hiking.
... road. At the rail road tracks we make a sharp right up a slippery hill and lean and grunt to get the tuk tuk to the destination. Despite my exterior bravado, inside my chest was a pounding heart. It was still ******* rain but I hear a friendly voice say "hello darling, let me bring in your bag." so here goes nothing. I hop out and walk into the house. The man running the hostel is overly friendly and telling me there are no rules, I can help myself to anything ...
