Nice hostel, good sanitary facilities, good breakfast. We could leve out luggage on check-out day as long as we wanted - great service. The only downside was that the Hostelworld page mentione there were laundry facilities, but it turned out there weren't. Overall a good hostel. More

Great place, very close to the beach. Plenty of beach restaurants around and a good overall spot to stay. More

Guesthouse is cheap, very close to the beach, but far away from the old city. It is close to the train station (mount lavinia station, which is very helpful). There is a kitchen we could use and the staff is helpful. We arrived late at night and didn't have any problems. 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
