Staff were very friendly, good restaurants near by, clean and safe rooms, breakfast was quite nice. We had a blocked drain in our shower, but staff were up to fix it within 2 minutes. After that, no problems. Would recommend!! More

Only down side was the kitchen facilities are restricted to only using a microwave. I don't want to microwave water for a cup of tea..maybe add a kettle!? More

Nice peaceful place to stay when you want easy access to a nice beach and Colombo City. Rooms are clean and there is a fan. You can also use the kitchen which allows you to cook your own dinner. More

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. More

It's not really a hostel, more like a flat. The host is very friendly and helpful. No blankets and the place is a little far out. Good service. Between the hostel and the sea is a train railway that is quiet busy. More

Staff need to improve, a lot of thing. Not satisfied at all. I don't recommend to anyone, especially rooms are very small and very hot and humid. More
