room had high ceiling and lots of fans (windows and doors shut to keep mozzies out, some still got in but tolerable) and lots of space to move around and for luggage. had a good nights sleep. it's really near mount lavina beach (great place to laze away, many restaurants and bars) and island scuba whom i dived with (only operator for diving in colombo). quite very away from city centre though. the rooftop common area was brilliant. lots of seats and cushions, very airy.

Staff were excellent - we stayed an extra night which they were able to accommodate! Had everything you needed, close to beach and transport. Would recommend!!

12 km south of Colombo (so travel into city can take up to 40 minutes). Basic but clean rooms. Close to beach and Mt Lavinia train station. Some excellent cafes close. Can also cook your own food there. Met lots of lovely travellers. Good option to escape Colombo or start trip heading south down the west coast.

Really nice place to stay. They at really friendly and helpful. It's a place where lots of people start or end their trip so it's a really good place to pick up tips on what to look out for in Sri Lanka.

Brilliant stay, a good place to meet people either at the beginning or end of your trip in Sri Lanka. Michael was very helpful as well. Definitely looking to return.

What to say about this place.... You'll find everything u need no matter your age, style, and needs. Good for large party or solo travellers. And if u feel like something missing the amazing Michael the manager and Dinesh the boss will make it happen. Perfect for first timers in this beautiful country, you'll get a warm welcome feeling there and all the info u may need. The terrace space is awesome for socialising and the kitchen is a good touch. This will be my home in Colombo for sure. Alex.

All in all it was a nice and easy stay at this Hostel. Easy to get into the city by bus and close to the beach, which is unfortunately not that nice. Supermarket near by, as well as an ATM and nice restaurants. Staff is really nice.

1. There is a non spoken kinda of curfew, you've to be back before 11.30pm 2. Mosquitos were the worst I have come a cross of in all of Sri Lanka .. It's like monsters they suck you all night long . Me and one of dorm's mate went to sleep in the rooftop which is felt the same with good breeze. 3. The old man who works at reception was a good with advices and where to go and all that stuff. 4. There was a parking so you could park your Tuk Tuk. 5.Dorm was clean.

Hi M, Thanks for staying with us. Sorry about the curfew interpretation. Yes the gates are closed up at that time for the security of the guests who are inside the premise, but anyone coming in later just have to ring the bell and you are in .... As for mosquitos , we do provide mosquito nets on request. There is also a notice of this in all rooms. Thanks again! Dinesh
