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!!

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.

Cheap and cheerful, with a good standard of maintenance and some nice additions to atmosphere (the roof top hang out space). Very close to the beach, the immediate area is quite bit up and a bit bustling, and you have to navigate through alleyways. Just wish there were lockers.

Really really hot in the dorms, only one ceiling fan (but it is Colombo). No mosquito nets. Ok for one night but nothing to do there for any longer, beach isn't very nice and not much in the area. Long way from the airport but close to Mt Lavinia train station.

Perfect location, close to the train station, beach and main highstreet. Room was spacious and clean however it is pretty noisy as you can hear the train and works going on around the hostel. Also the room gets really hot ans there is only a fan which didnt really generate mych air unless you was directly underneath and was also bery noisy. There was no safety box for valuables amd the manager warned us about keeping belongings close to the window incase of theieves! Rooftop was perfect to chill

Overall a good hostel. Rooms were basic with lockers only big enough for small backpacks and valuables. They had no record at all of my booking when I arrived (despite an email conversation confirming it) and got very annoyed at me paying with a 5000 rupee note, which surely a hostel should be equipped to deal with. Despite those parts of the experience being fairly average, the hostel is redeemed by the social atmosphere and kitchen facilities on the rooftop, which are great.
