Pretty average place to stay, staff okay but not overly friendly. Really the least friendly place we stayed in Sri Lanka. It was off season but there was really no atmosphere in the place. The wifi didn't work at all in the room unless you stood at the door.. Or in the hallway.. But even still the connection was terrible and only worked intermittently. We raised with staff who said they would look into it but there was no difference. Location was good.

Great location, clean and comfortable rooms, and all amenities were excellent!

Clock inn feels more like a boutique hotel then a hostel. The reception area is clean and modern, the kitchen and common area is airy and spacious. The kitchen has two staff members who prepared our breakfast. There is also some toast and a selection of jam where guests can help themselves. The location on Galle road is ok. It's an easy ride to Galle face green and the Colombo fort area. Although it's difficult to explain the location. Perhaps a map is needed for the tuktuk drivers to find it.

The lounge is awesome! The staff are very friendly and give good recommendations. The showers have an innovative design, they're tiny but completely functional!

Hostel looked better on the pictures.So a bit disappointing to arrive here. It's not cosy. With long corridor and boring, uncreative bedrooms. The common space is not inviting to sit and meet other people. It was difficult to take a shower since there's no space to put your towel.and it was fill of hairs. Everything is really basic, so the price should be tas well.It was my most expensive stay in sri lanka and definitely not the best. Positive note are the big lockers in the room and the staff.

Clean, quiet, and cold! Stayed here two times during my trip to Sri Lanka and would highly recommend it for the location, as well as for the delicious breakfast. Beautiful facilities and comfortable beds.

Great location, luggage storage, clean and nice common room. However, it seemed like there was more staff than visitors and it didn't have a friendly social vibes.

Clean, functionnal and safe space, which might come as a relief after some time in Sri Lanka. I would definitely recommend it. The only issue we had was with the airport pick-up, which never found us. Take a cab to get there, 3000 rs max.

I enjoyed my stay here, it is a nice hostel to just chill out at after a day of traveling. The common room is comfy and a good place to hang out and chat to people. The breakfast was decent and the rooms adequate and clean. There are a few things that need improving however. The kitchen in the common room needs a serious cleaning, even the provided dish cloth etc were disgusting, and there is nowhere in the shower to hang your towel or clothes to avoid them getting wet. Overall would stay again.

Security was greatly good as no one could get on your floor without a lock, and you had decent sized lockers. You were given fresh pillows towel and blanket and the bed was super comfy. Hot shower was amazing. The communal area is really nice but the air con whacked on high so you're freezing. And while several of us were sitting watching a film we were all told to leave as they wanted to clean the room... Very annoying. But otherwise a decent place, although not in the most exciting location.

They could make the lounge more sociable maybe serve beer or wine so people would stay longer and chat. All in all the stay was comfortable and I would stay agan
