Nice cheap place near the beach and train station. No complaints.
A 2 minute walk to the beach. A 10 minute walk to the Mt. Livonia train station. (Although if you want a seat in 2nd class, you should go to the Colombo station.) Maybe about a 40 minute tuktuk ride to Colombo.
The young staff are excellent, all the boys try to help. When things go wrong, like tv, air con, water or anything they apologise and try to fix it. I think management could be a bit more proactive in fixing the facilities and that would help. It's the best customer service I've had in Sri Lanka. They just need to fix a few things and keep the maintenance up. They could improve the food too, the breakfast is fine and some of it is adequate but some is too pricey for what it is and staff agree.
Best hostel, I ever had. Friendliness of staff is overwhelming, esp. LASITHA -hopefully correct spelling(?!) does everything to make you happy. If you want busy nightlife, go closer to Colombo city. If you want to relax from a busy life, choose Tropic Inn. Breakfeast is heaven there.
