Thank you guys for your care! It was such a good feeling to have you near by during my illness. You made everything easier for us and help us a lot! It was very nice stay at your homestay and the location was perfect. Thanks for all! With Love Jana (czech republic)

We stayed here for 2 nights and were very happy with our stay until our second night when the owner left us alone. We were the only 2 people staying there and felt very vulnerable. The doors were locked but the windows were left open and unable to shut. Apart from that he provided plates and cutlery and decent wifi, perfect location as very close to aiprort.
I arrived late to Mazz Homestay and Rome met me to check me in. He was very friendly, although I booked 2 nights and was unable to get a refund when I left early after only one night. The bathroom was basic, needed cleaning and was full of mosquitos. No flyscreens on the bedrooms either and the beds were not very comfortable. Mazz is handy to get to and from the airport but is very basic, as expected.
It was um...interesting. After being shown around the house, including how to flush the toilet and turn the tap both on and off, we were shown to a very basic room. The shared bathroom was not clean and full of ants and mosquitoes. The members of staff who dealt with us was a tad eccentric and made us feel like another problem for him rather than paying guests. Unfortunately the house backs on to a school which woke us up very early and was surprisingly loud.
Great location if you are travelling from airport. Owner very friendly and helpful!!! Not that clean, but hey - it's Sri Lanka :)) OK for the money.
Myself and my girlfriend stayed in Mazz Homestay twice on our travels in Sri Lanka. Both experiences were great with Rome taking care of everything we needed on both occassions. It's a great option for flying in or out of Colombo Int. Airport as the hostel is just around the corner from (1min walk) from the main Negombo bus station. This station is only 25/30rupee (20c - 45min) bus ride from the airport (turn right out of the airport and walk for 10min to this first bus-stop).
Very Friendly staff. Please provide towel and soap- these items can be added to the rate .
