A fantastic hostel, very clean and spacious. The staff were really friendly and helped with any questions and tips about the area. The location was great and it's just a short distance from the Colombo city centre.


Staff very friendly and helpful, room was nice with excellent facilities.


The security of Clock Inn Hostel, Colombo is unacceptable. The entrance door is generally left open. They have a keypad system but neglect to use. Up 3 flights of stairs are the dorms rooms starting 201. The main door for the dorms remains open, often. I stayed in the dorm closest to this and was constantly closing it. There is a security tag to get in and out the dorms but is usually insecure. I pointed this out amongst other issues to the Manager. We left early because of this.


Very clean. Very nice staff. The AC made everything better in Sri Lanka. Would definitely go back again!


no hostel athmosphere in the common room, only some old men sitting there watching cricket on tv; good size of the rooms; clean bathroom


Nice staff, super super clean location with good breakfast. For sri lanka the price is a bit too expensive. The hostel is more a hotel, perfect for couples and families but for backpackers who are looking for contact with other people it might be not the perfect place.
