We were 4 guys sleeping there and we loved it The lady taking care of the house is the best most friendly lady ull ever meet in Sri Lanka. She even gave us the recipee for the noodles she made when we asked. One thing bad about it is that it was hot n there was no Air conditioning facilities but as a whole, this is just amazing.
Friendly staff, helpful driver, nice atmosphere and good basic breakfast. You can't lock dorm rooms and there is just one bathroom for at least 8 people. But I enjoyed my stay and explored the beaches a bit.
This place was the most positive thing about Negombo. It has the loveliest staff you could imagine and the hostel is a mansion of a house located close to the beach and restaurants. Stay here for one night after arriving from the airport and one night before you leave, Negombo doesn't offer much.
God clean place to stay, but prices have doubled in less than a year !! Kanthi, who works the place, is the friendliest, lovely woman you could hope to meet !!! and attentive !! Negombo is Negombo - plane flights in and out - reason d'etre !! But, you could certainly go to a lot worse places !! It is super clean and friendly - amazing building too !! Certainly recommend !! Especially while Kanthi is there !!!
We needed to stay at somewhere close from the airport so we chose this hotel. by a prepaid taxi from the airport, we paid 1300rs. The staff was extremely nice. They welcomed us with a welcom drink and told us about how to go around in Sri Lanka. Later, I realzed that I left my glasses there, and when I dropped by there to pick them up, they also let us use a shower before we headed to the airpot. They are just nice.
The hostel is difficult to find. Hostel name is not shown in the building. Private room does not have private toilet facilities.

Ok, but not very pleased. Not far from the beach, but far from city center and airport. Staff was surprised by our arrival (!), but they did find beds for us. Typical hostel, yet building very good looking from outside, also the inside looks nice. Not the cheapest for backpacker. Hard to find - no name on the fence or the building, tuk-tuk drivers do not know the place. You have to give the address.
