Great hostel in a great location. Very close to the beach and restaurants are only a 5 minute walk away. Very clean. Very quaint and peaceful atmosphere at the hostel. There's lots of different hangout spots both outside and inside. Lots of charging ports in the rooms. High speed fans in all the rooms.

Great place, so close to the beach, a few minutes walk (or paddle through the Indian Ocean!) to Mt Lavinia Station, where you can get trains to Galle or Colombo. Great value for money, lovely garden, verandah & plunge pool. No meals but free tea, coffee & SLS water (safe for Westerners). The owner, Merle, is v.helpful in answering email queries, arranging airport pick-ups etc. She is not always at the hostel but is at the end of a telephone. Her assistant is lovely but doesn't speak much Englis.

A really lovely place to relax, very clean and like a home away from home. Met some lovely people while staying here as well. The pool is a nice touch to enjoy some drinks at the end of a hot day out. Location is good and both ladies there, Merl (the owner) and her assistant are very kind and generous. My fave place to stay in Colombo.

Was a lovely stay. We were welcomed with tea and the ladies hosting were very attentive to our needs. Felt very safe as big gate locked us in. Definitely recommend if staying in Colombo!

We really enjoyed our stay in this hostel. It is nicely located outside of Colombo, which is easy to reach by bus. The owner was nice and helpful and the rooms were really clean. The outside area was well kept with all its flowers and many restaurants were close by at the beach.

This hostel was an absolute pleasure to walk into after 3 days of travelling. The host was super friendly and greeted us right away with a cup of tea. Our room was very clean, mosquito net for every bed, cute little kitchen with a fridge to keep your water cold. Lockers are small so don't expect to fit a backpack or anything in there. Lots of little patios around the yard to chill out in and the pool was a nice touch seeing how the ocean was a bit rough when we got three and it was hot !

Fantastic spot. The people are very friendly, the wifi is amazing, you are just a few steps away from the beach and there's a little spot called "The food corner" nearby that offers great breakfasts for really cheap!
