Clean, open and light environment. Well kept. I would recommend for a short stay while in Colombo before venturing to other parts of the country. I stayed in a private room with a friend and we had our own bathroom. The place was very clean with prompt service and shampoo and conditioner More

I was expecting a simple room but it was a small apartment with basic kitchen facilities and outdoor seating area. Nice friendly family atmosphere. More

Nice staff, super super clean location with good breakfast. For sri lanka the price is a bit too expensive. The hostel is more a hotel, perfect for couples and families but for backpackers who are looking for contact with other people it might be not the perfect place. More

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, More

After spending hours to decide on this place we were moved onto another hotel on arrival. Everyone has email, just tell us before arrival. Although I suspect they get as many bookings as possible and sell the extras onto other hotels. Alot of empty hotels at Mount lavina, just walk More

I really enjoyed my stay at Colombo Beach Hostel! The guys who work there are extremely nice and helpful! The hostel's rooftop is such an amazing area, where you can relax, have a drink, meet people, eat or even take an outdoor shower after long hours at the beach. I'd definitely go back More

I don't feel like this place is really a hostel. It's overpriced for what it's worth. The staff are friendly though and ready to help you with planning, however they don't speak much English and the help they offer, though genuine, is not of much use. The location is a little out of the More
