Terrible experience from start to finish. Room was filthy. Noisy and staff rude and arrogant.

This hostel was great for our first night in sri Lanka. As two young female travelers we felt very safe. They had trustworthy staff and the drivers were excellent. Dinesh is mighty helpful and helped us plan the rest of the trip and also helped organize accommodation with a lovely family. The place next door also does great brekky. Apart from the hostel being great I do reccomend getting out of Colombo asap as there is lots to discover in the amazing hill country and beaches. Cheers!

Having travelled around Sri Lanka and India we found this property to be over priced for the standard, cleanliness and location. However the owner was helpful in booking us a taxi, info about buses and allowed us to keep the room longer as I was sick on day of departure


I ended up not staying at this b&b as the room just looked awful. The ceiling was open to the rafters, the walls looked washed out and really dingy, their was gaps between the walls and floors. Also the fan was low and noisy so probably wouldn't have been able to sleep while the fan was on. The place was just miserable.
