Just a pity to dismiss personal which is working really very hard and well! From one day to another!!! Real reasons are demanded! It is the most important that the personel speaks English this can help travellers a lot and they feel quickly comfortable. No space to sleep for the personal (just couch)! ....and no mosquito nets!

We had a very comfortable stay. The lady taking care of the hostel is very nice and lovely. Laundry was very cheap. I would come back if I come to Colombo again!

I like it. Nothing special, but very nice. The price is good. And no mosquitoes!


I like it very much. So sweet and comfortable, i felt like at home.


The hostel is nice. Yes, it is not big, but because of that it is very comfortable.


Comfortable, clean place. Wiena is lovely person, she is very sweet. And the beach is nearby, nice one.


Nice place. I like it. Close to the beach, you can go to the roof and see the sunset. Staff is nice also.


To small rooms, to many people in the small appartment, bad beds, no fresh air, no mosquitoes net. But a nice hostess, doing what see can.

Next to the beach with beautiful sea view


Dehiwala is really not a convenient place to stay. Go for central Colombo.
