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!
