Although there was some building work going on, we were in no way disturbed by this. Friendly, enthusiastic personnel, who were very helpful (especially the girl).

I only stayed here for one night in a dorm room, which was alright. While the dorm room was clean and came with spacious lockers and airconditioning, the shared bathroom wasn't too clean at all. Contrarily, the location was very nice, with the beach only a few minutes away and plenty of cheap eateries in the vicinity. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful.

Hostel was ok for just 2 nights, nothing flashy and not too many backpackers, hence why my rating in regards to the atmosphere. The staff was welcoming and really helpful. Close to the train station and the beach just across the road (but keep in mind it's a city beach, so don't expect too much)

I stayed in a dorm which was declared to be "luxury". It was not luxury but it was good. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Thank you very much for your review in TripAdvisor. It means a lot to us. .At Marine we are committed to consistently providing warm, welcoming and friendly service to our guests. When you compare the rest of the hostels and there facilities in negombo and what you are paying we can declare as luxury. But it might not as luxury as European standard

Close to airport. Tuk tuk costs 800 rupees ish. Close to beach. Beach not great but fine for stop off before/after airport. Staff helpful and cleaned regularly! For nightlife walk about 10 minutes down the road (right out of hostel) to find better bars/restaurants
