The colombo city hostel was a fantastic place to stay for the week. It was clean, the staff all friendly and helpful, and had a great relaxing vibe. I loved how some outings and activities were organised and everyone was welcome to come along. The beach is a short auto ride away and there are shops and restaurants close by to the hostel. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or recommend it to a friend!

Really relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Fast WiFi throughout the hostel. Emma who runs the hostel is a traveler herself, very outgoing and friendly always ensuring her guests have a fun experience and she is very laid back. Always available to answer questions and often organizing event.The house keeper as well is very nice always has a smile on his face. Close to a grocery store and not far from the beach. Great place to stay when you first arrive in sri lanka
