Description

The Hostelz.com Review

#BedBox is a surprisingly modern, Western-style hostel that is located only a few minutes from the bus stop as well as the main street of Dambulla. Its facilities include a badminton court, swings, and hammocks as well as a huge garden area. If you are visiting Kandy as well, booking together with Bunk Planet Hostel will give you a discount.

The Location

#BedBox is conveniently located in the centre of Dambulla, only a few hundred metres from public transportation, supermarkets, Western-style restaurants, local eateries, and the marketplace. If the purpose of your visit is to do a day trip to Sigiriya then this place is ideal for you as you will be able to catch the bus right from your doorstep. Despite the excellent location, #Bedbox still manages to be in a quiet place, with only a few upper-class residential houses nearby.

Rooms and Bathrooms

#Bedbox offers both dorm and individual rooms, the former on the ground floor and the latter on the first floor. The beds are huge and are protected by a mosquito net. Each guest gets an individual locker, which is spacious enough to fit a backpack. The bathrooms are shared between two dorm rooms and offer two toilets and two showers as well as a huge area with sinks and mirrors. However, hot water is not available.

Common Spaces

The hostel is extremely spacious and has the most diverse common areas. Indoors, there is a very basic kitchen with an eating area as well as a chilling zone with comfy coaches and a selection of books to reads. However, the best place to relax is in the garden where you can sit at a table to enjoy a nice drink or lie down in one of the hammocks. You can also play badminton on the grassy badminton court and for this, racquets are also provided. However, a big downside of this place is that their wifi is so slow that it is almost nonexistent, so if you are planning to do some work on your laptop, this place is definitely far from ideal.

Summary

If #BedBox had better Wi-Fi, it would be the perfect place to stay. It is clean, spacious, and modern, and here you can definitely expect a Western-style hostel experience. And once you discover all the facilities on offer, you will never want to leave.
