Dear Alena, I am really pleased you did enjoy your stay at Colombo City Hostel. And we do believe that it is our duty to give a good start for a traveler who just landed to explore our beautiful tropical island of Sri Lanka. Thank you for your time, writing this review, we really appreciate your opinion :) Hope you did enjoy the country as much as you did enjoy staying with us Love CCH team


Very helpful staff, quite a small intimate hostel so easy to get to know people staying there - it has only two rooms with 8 beds in each, and that was pretty much it as far as I could see. Has a shared kitchen too, so you can do your own cooking. Hostel kept very clean.
