    Our stay at the hostel was well beyond our expectations. The staff there was very pleasant and helpful. They have a fully functional kitchen and breakfast was included in the price which was an added advantage. The location was spot on and we could find public transportation nearby. The linen was clean and the cleanliness of the place was great. The staff even allowed us to keep our luggage after check-out since our flight was late in the night. Nothing to complain. :D

    Passed through Colombo, not very close to the train station but can easily get a bus there during the day.

    Can’t really highly rate this place even though the two ladies who take care of it are lovely. It’s not at all a social hostel, the per night rate is low so the prices of everything else is hiked up. Didn’t even have a power outlet close to my bed, barely any wifi access from the room and even in the lobby the wifi is minimal. Was happy to move hostels after two nights. Also they should get scented candles or something for the mosquito problem.

    Very hard to find. Clean beds and very friendly staff, had a home cooked dinner for 300 rupees. However, no atmosphere or socialising. Would only use as a good base passing through Colombo for a night.

    Definitely not a backpackers paradise. Only 2 plugs in a 8 bedroom dorm, so I could not charge any devices. No proper lockers for baggage and we were told off by the woman working there for coming home too late om a friday night. It was 11 pm... they were helpful though with airport shuttle!

    I only spent one night at this hostel, but it was miserable. It was very difficult to find because it is in a back alley. The owner could not speak enough English for basic communication. The room I was placed in was incredibly hot and stuffy, with only one small working fan for all the beds. I could not sleep because it was so hot. There was no outlet to charge my phone. There was no locker for my valuables. Don't stay here.

    Staff didn't speak any word English, No Lockers, no space in the rooms, just one tiny dirty bathroom. Wifi works only in the groundfloor. I didn't like it there
