Very nice hostel, great garden to chill, lovely host who will also take you to a party or pub crawl. Open kitchen, easy to get to know other travelers. Only minus: quite far from the city center! About 40minuts and 800rp by tuktuk, or 1h by public bus. But therefore it's quiet! And the mattresses were quite uncomfortable..


Very nice place, friendly an helpful staff who knows what there is to see and do in the area and in all of Sri Lanka too.


Great place!


One of the homeliest hostels I've stayed at. Facilities were great - lockers large, showers and kitchen are cleaned every day by the wonderful Dom. Be realistic about the location - it's not in the central area. But don't be deterred, catching a bus is an easy and cheap option over a tuk tuk. All the essentials are near by - cheap good food, supermarket, ATM. Just not the main colombo sights


The only problem with this place is the location. It is not near any attractions and you must take a tuktuk to get anywhere. Many drivers also get lost on the way back. No a/c.


I loved this hostel. It has a great atmosphere and is one of the few true hostels in Sri Lanka. I met some lovely people in the common rooms and had two fun nights here. I would highly recommend staying here.
