wifi is poor and doesnt work in the rooms, and the computer near reception is frustratingly slow. Room was reasonably clean, but the bathroom needed a good scrubbing and sweep - I saw toenail clippings on the floor. Location was ok - we found there wasnt really a "good area" to stay in More

This was my second time to stay in the hostel, as I've said before they need locks in the main room and not just the floor. I was changing my clothes and one of the staff walked in he just like stared at me for 5 seconds before I told him to go away. The staff returned together with 2 More

Nice room with a small fridge, great for bottles of water in the oppressive heat. Owner is very nice and when I turned up without a reservation 2 weeks after staying she simply gave me details of and directions to another homestay not too far away. Would definitely stay here again if I More

I had a single room with a fan and it was poorly ventilated. I couldn't open the windows because of the mosquitos.The room itself was dingy, but the dorms were nice. Rita , the lady who worked there, was absolutely amazing. She was a very sweet and kind :) More

Run by 2 friendly ladies, and lots of other travellers there. We were pleased to be in Lavinia Beach- much quieter and nicer than Fort! Easy to explore the city, just take a tuktuk to the centre. Good fan in room, and we appreciated the tea/coffee making facilities! More

The staff were very helpful and friendly. Free breakfast is included, however, we were not told what time this is at and since we got in from our flight very late, when we came down at 10am they had stopped serving breakfast. They also started construction work in the hostel fairly early. More

I felt a bit cheated, because the hostel is close to some other airport. We landed at the international airport (bandarayike), and it was very far. We had to travel through Colombo. More

This hostel is cheap and great for any backpackers on a budget. It has basic facilities such as a bed and a shared bathroom but the place is very clean. I had booked the hostel that evening and sent an email request to be collected from the airport. At 00:30pm when we landed our transfer More
