The hostel is conveniently located within walking distance of the main street and beach. Rooms and beds are clean and the atmosphere at the hostel was very friendly, with many people to meet and helpful staff that will give you invaluable advice.

Great common area on the roof. Located close to the beach and just a few minutes walk from some great cheap and local eating places. The staff were great, spoke excellent English. Many people had said the fan was no good and the rooms were too hot, I didn't have any issues with this when I stayed here. The fan was perfectly adequate and the room was quite cool at night.

To me is not as good to be the first ratted. The room is very basic but is clean though. The staff is okay but not extremely helpful when it comes to terms of advising you where to go or what to do. Nice rooftop. The atmosphere wasn't so good first day but it was getting better after two days. To me is 6-7 ratting.

Came as advertised. Owners were very helpful in answering any questions. Nice rooftop patio. The location is out of town, but the downtown area is readily accessible by a single bus that stops within a five minute walk from the hostel.

Loved staying at CBH, it's the perfect place to get away from the busy city & relax by the sea. The staff were all really friendly & welcoming, we loved Mr Michael!!

The hotel is nice, it has a lot of life lovely sitting area on the roof! We booked a dormitory, arrived early hours of the morning. Which was ok! However the beds had bed bugs, big ones! There was no one around to tell, we ended up sleeping on the roof in the lounge / kitchen area. Told the manager the next day. He gave us a private room for the same price as the dorm for an extra night. However he still charged us for the night we slept on the roof! no apologies!!

Hi Do apologize for what happened, and i believe so did Michael, and if you had told him during the night, he would have organised a room change that night itself. Happy to say that this matter has been arrested. once again, sorry about what happened, Kind rgds, Dinesh

Perfectly lovely hostel, good value for money. Great location next to a beautiful beach but quite far out from Colombo itself. Had lockers in the rooms, everything was very clean! Good kitchen facilities. Top floor balcony was a great! Would recommend .

Pretty basic, but a fairly good location only a short walk to the beach. Just like so many others have mentioned, the heat plus mosquitos makes sleeping difficult (especially in the ground floor dorms). Good crowd and had fun nonetheless :)

Good location. Very close to the beach and also to the main road with food, banks and supermarkets. Rooms are very warm with just a fan but that's to be expected. Cold water available at the desk and functioning kitchen with small refrigerator available for use by all.
