This hostel is cheap and great for any backpackers on a budget. It has basic facilities such as a bed and a shared bathroom but the place is very clean. I had booked the hostel that evening and sent an email request to be collected from the airport. At 00:30pm when we landed our transfer was there waiting for us. The people are extremely helpful and attentive. The location is good, near to the beach and down the road from a main street. For anywhere else of interest the tuk tuks are cheap enough

No lock on dorm door. Woman owner kept coming into our room.... even at 6am to wake us up! Mould on walls in room. Location was ok but not great. DONT eat at restaurant next to hostel on beach.
Sea View Hostel was great in terms of location for us - it's two seconds walk to the beach. However, we were a bit disappointed that the hostel had a curfew of 10:00pm which I had not seen on any of the adverts / documentation. If we had have known this we would not have booked this. The lady that ran the hostel was also a bit odd, she would walk in to our rooms whilst we were standing in towels & also came in to our room at 6:30am whilst we were sleeping & made lots of noise with the fans !
Had a great stay there, if wanting to come back to Colombo would consider staying again. Great value for money and kind staff.
The place is clean and Indrani who is staff is very kindly
