Mahabodhi Society of Sri Lanka

Guesthouse, hostel in Sanchi

This friendly, well-run place is primarily geared to Sri Lankan Buddhist pilgrims but also welcomes international travellers unless it's full (most likely around the late-November Chetiyagiri Vihara festival). The rear building has good, clean, carpeted air-conditioned rooms with big bathrooms, and wearier but still clean non-air-con rooms. Dorms around the shady front courtyard share clean squat toilets and unheated showers.
