Great value place with a very good free breakfast. They also supply one of the finest free maps I have ever seen. Side note - nice little bakery 50 meters up the street
Nice clean place to stay, not far from fort. Staff really helpful and good free breakfast. Dorm rooms could do with locks on each door not just for that floor but there is a large locked assigned to each bed so at least somewhere safe to leave valuables. Overall good value for money.
wifi is poor and doesnt work in the rooms, and the computer near reception is frustratingly slow. Room was reasonably clean, but the bathroom needed a good scrubbing and sweep - I saw toenail clippings on the floor. Location was ok - we found there wasnt really a "good area" to stay in Colombo, the city is so spread out, so this location is as good as any. Plus tuk tuks are really cheap. Breakfast wasnt bad either.
This was my second time to stay in the hostel, as I've said before they need locks in the main room and not just the floor. I was changing my clothes and one of the staff walked in he just like stared at me for 5 seconds before I told him to go away. The staff returned together with 2 maintenance workes who was gonna fix the aircon, this made me very uncomfortable, they could have simply move us to another room and start fixing the aircon, they had plenty of vacant rooms.
Had bad experience. Asked if breakfast was included and was told it is. When we ate, price not mentioned, didn't see it anywhere. Informed at check-out that it's $5 each: extremely expensive for what we got. Dorm room prices were already high, getting gouged for another $10 was disappointing. Good security: Key cards to access floors and building. Clean, comfortable beds. Co-ed bathrooms were fine. Building is modern and attractive. AC + wifi are good. Staff friendly, but cost us $10. Too bad.
Seems like a slightly dodgy area, not much happening but there are a couple of places to eat and a shopping centre fairly close by. Hostel was alright though we are pretty sure we ended up with bed bugs afterwards... Staff were helpful and friendly albeit a little shy.
