The dorms were very nice, clean and exactly like they say online. The location is good (lots of places to eat and short walk to the beach) and easy to get to (most drivers know it). We stayed here our first night in Sri Lanka and the staff was also very helpful in telling us how to get to places and helped give us a few more ideas of what to see on our trip.

Thanks for sharing your experience at marine with fellow travelers


I was disappointed when I found a man laying in one of the beds in what was supposed to be a female dorm. I was told they don't have any female dorms even though that's what my booking said. I was then told that I could get my deposit and find another place. Which after a 16 hour flight was not the best reception I could have hoped for. I then asked for a single guest room and was told there weren't any which was contrary to the online availability.

We apologies, for our inability to give the female dorm as per her reservation. This happened due to peak season. According to the agreement with hostel world, when overbooking incident happened, we have to look for similar standard dormitory in another hostel or return the deposit.But I am sorry to say there is no dormitory available with air-condition and hot water with similar beds in Negombo.The only option was to transfer the guest to mixed dormitory.We don’t offer single rooms.


Booked in to this hotel in Negombo rather than Colombo from the airport as it's only 20mins away and a lot nicer than the hectic city and traffic if Colombo. The staff were friendly and let us get on with things. Room was clean, no complaints.


Fantastic place.


Amazing place run by amazing people


Near airport, good location! Cool A/C dorm bed, with locker, power shower, equipped with electrical socket and reading light! Started my trip at a pleasant way, thanks to the boss, gave me an easy & good tips to Anuradhapura and Kandy! Sure will stay here again before return home.


The hostel is perfectly located. You just cross the street and you're on the Beach. The rooms are very clean and the Breakfast delicious. We enjoyed our stay very much and we appreciated a lot the staff!! Very welcoming and very helpful.They gave us very good advice for the rest of our trip especially concerning transports (bus, train, til Turk, etc...) I will definitely recommend this place.
