It was indeed PARADISE.
Our room was huge and overlooking the sea. There was plenty of hot water, we had a large balcony, air conditioning and a vast mosquito net to ensure trouble free sleeping. Last but not least, the temperature was a wonderful 31 degrees....The only sound was that of the sea with the added attraction of some bird song. ...

It was run by and old Sri Lankan lady who was living there in one of the dorms which was a little bit odd because we kind of felt like we were invading her house!
