Property Description

Backpack Lanka is located at the heart of Colombo, Colombo 03, Colpetty to be exact which is about 40 minutes from the main international airport.

Right on R. A. de Mel Mawatha (also known as Duplication Road) we’re a located on one of Colombo’s busiest roads, across from Liberty Plaza (shopping mall which also incidentally houses the largest food mall in SL), right next to a bus stop and brisk 10 minute walk away from the Colpetty train station ready and waiting to wisk you away on your next adventure.

We offer 20 dorm styled bunk beds on a mixed basis and 3 bunk beds on a strictly girls only floor. Our rates are incredibly competitive for what is offered – a place to rest your tired head at the end of a long day of walking about and exploring. While we want to make it clear that all you get is a safe environment with clean beds and fresh linens we find it imperative that we also provide you with some creature comforts to ensure your time off doesn’t take you too far back in time! Our beautiful common room is fully air conditioned, has a big screen TV with blue ray, home theatre system, free 4G WiFi (for you to spread the word about BPL), a common use computer, dining tables, a few kitchen utensils and a microwave to heat up a delicious snack (which you should feel free to share!).

We hope to make BPL a point in Colombo where travelers, like yourself, will have an opportunity to meet others sharing similar interests, bond over those interests whatever they may be. View House Rules

    Staff were great. Location good but would have preferred some kind of window in my room. Call me fussy but I find oxygen quite useful in keeping me alive.

    Me and my boyfriend had a great stay here. The location is perfect for exploring the city and it was a good base arriving from and going to the airport. All the staff were very helpful with everything we needed. The highlight of our stay though was meeting the lovely Michael who told us all about the history of Sri Lanka and helped us plan our route around the island. His stories were fascinating and made us fall in love with Sri Lanka even before we had travelled anywhere!

    Basic but sufficient place to stay for a night in Colombo. Staff was friendly, room had air con but no blanket, hot water worked unless more than one person was showering at once. Fine for the amount paid, considering it was in Colombo.

    DO NOT STAY HERE. I booked into this hostel and left after 5 minutes. It is shocking how terrible this hostel is. I was given no linen or towel, the rooms are dark and dingey, the place feels a bit like a brothel. For the same price you can stay at Bunkyard hostel just up the road which is not even comparable!
