This is not at all what they sell it to be ! The place actually looks like on the pictures, but 20 years & no maintenance later ... It's an empty gost resort: literally in the middle of nowhere, all the signs say the hotel is (or was ?) named Shalika, you'll be all alone there with nothing to do cause the pool is broken ... The only positive thing to say is that that the owner is very nice. I really hope he gets this sorted and cleans up the place + put representative pictures on here.
Super hostel ! Modern, clean and with super-nice, international staff (meaning they speak english, which is a plus in Sri Lanka ;) ). They also organize activities every night (dinners, poker games, drinking games, ...), so fun garanteed ! Best hostel I had in Sri Lanka during my 2 weeks stay ! Only trouble is finding it ;) (You'll know what i mean, when you try to explain the Sri Lankan's you want to go to "Park Avenue" ;) )
Good hostel, definitely good deal for that price ! The owner is very nice as well. Really helpfull, and willing to open the door for you at any time during the night :) I arrived at 4am colombo, which was no problem for her, and she was really flexible on my check-out time the next day since she felt I had to sleep out to compensate for my short night ;)
Small room, but well organized and clean. Very close to the center. Also, this must be the first hostel i ever go to where the staff is almost never there ! but they organise themselve in a way that it doesn't really bother you. Smart hostel :)
The female dorms right next to the kitchen are a bit noisy (definitely with all the Europeans and their jetlag waking up at 5 am ;) ), but besides that, this hostel is really good ! Good atmosphere, good location, lots of showers, nice staff and ... unlimited pancakes and good coffee for breakfast :) !
Tipical european hostel: pretty and nice rooms, clean and new, but unflexible and frustrated staff. Don't expect any party in the hostel: even checking in at 11.30 is problematic because "people are sleeping". Also, you have to pay an additional 2€ for your bed sheets.
Nothing wrong with this hostel. Only a pity that breakfast is not included.
Nice hostel, really cool people ! The only thing missing is a pool ;)
Really nice hostel, with beautiful location, but our stay got kind of ruined because of reservation issues and repeated (!) thefts in our room.
Really nice staff, really fun hostel !!
Nice hostel, but very dirty ! Private bathrooms didnt get cleaned for 2 days, bread for breakfast is always a few days old. The pool was empty too when we stayed there.
The 4 bed dorms are claustrophobically small, but the rest of the hostel is ok. Staff is really nice.
Definitely good value for money ! It doesn't look very cozy at first, but its clean, well located, and the the staff is really nice (they even let us stay when we were overbooked !). Good hangout spot for travellers. We spend a few days hanging in the couch and enjoying the relaxed environment :)

As all hostels in Jordan not the most clean, but very -very- good breakfast, friendly and helpful staff and good location close to Petra. This is a real hostel, where backpackers hang in the couches, which you don't come across often in Jordan :)
Very nice staff !! Ali is just the nicest person in the world ! He does everything for his guests and is available 24/7. From tourist advise, to money exchange, to taxi prices, to breakfast bags when you leave early in the morning, to babysitting for some guests babies... everything is taken care off ;).
HUGH massa-hostel, but build to make your stay comfortable. They have all the thing you always think are missing in other hostels: bar, clean sheets, space ... Maybe not the place you want to go to when your looking for a small hostel with lots of character, but a very pleasant stay if you have been travelling for several weeks and are in need od some space and cleaniness ;)
