Not really a hostel, but a great place if you stay that side of town. No kitchen but plenty of food places near by as well a KFC. Beach near by is ok


The location is great, it's near the beach however it's quite noisy in the morning because of the school nearby. The staff are super nice, friendly and helpful! Breakfast is huge and delicious, also cheap! No lift, so it could be tired if you bring more than 2 luggages, the bathroom is not so clean!

Very friendly staff and clean rooms. Not a party hostel but a good place to chill out.


Very clean hotel, comfortable bed, large shower, tasty food, located right near the beach and a short bus or train ride to Colombo. A much quieter and pleasant area to stay. Only negative was poor to no wifi connection but that's also a good push to get out and explore. The helpful, friendly staff make it an all-around ideal stay. Definitely recommended.
