If they had only mosquito net, it'd be so perfect for me. Everything I loved. Nothing to complain about other than mosquito net :) More

Just a pity to dismiss personal which is working really very hard and well! From one day to another!!! Real reasons are demanded! It is the most important that the personel speaks English this can help travellers a lot and they feel quickly comfortable. No space to sleep for the More

It's a great place to stay as it's not IN the city and not too far away. It has great access to public transport routes (bus or train) into the city. Great vibe as I met a lot of fellow travellers and we continued as a group from here. The Roof. It's THE place to be when you go back to More

Seemed a little bit overpriced for what you get. The owner was very nice and the rooftop is great. There are plenty of cheap restaurants nearby. Probably wouldn't stay here again because I think you can find something for a better value. More

It's actually an old house converted to a hostel. Very friendly staff. The location is right next to the beach. The nearby Food Corner has excellent breakfast! More

The hostel is very cute and a nice getaway from the slightly manic city of Colombo. The best thing about it was the two lovely women who ran it. They were super helpful and very friendly! We checked out on the Monday morning but had to hang around till midnight to wait for our night bus. 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

Clock inn feels more like a boutique hotel then a hostel. The reception area is clean and modern, the kitchen and common area is airy and spacious. The kitchen has two staff members who prepared our breakfast. There is also some toast and a selection of jam where guests can help More

We had a beautiful stay in Mount Lavinia Home stay. It's well located next to the main road and shops, and next to the beach. The owner is very nice and helpful. Everything was clean, and there was a kitchen that we used everyday. More
