    Had a nice few nights here to begin my trip through Sri Lanka. Staff were incredibly helpful with information. There was a very chilled vibe here, with many other solo travellers to meet as well in the downstairs area. The staff also hosted a local hoppers night and the food was SO good. Great shower and bathrooms.

    This was the first hostel I stayed at in my life. Was an extremely organised place - and had a really chilled out ambience and crowd. I was allotted a bed in the Dark Dorm - which was decently sized for a 8 bed dorm. The linens and pillows were clean and fresh. The washrooms were clean and dry as well. The staff were really helpful and friendly. Had this place had an in-house cafe - it would have been the perfect place. However, overall, it was a very pleasant and enjoyable stay.

    Had a nice stay and met a lot of travellers. The room and toilet were clean and the hostel had a nice common area where people just chilled out. Didn't know that there was a kitchen until the next day. Thought it would have been nice if the hostel staff had organised some activities like a bbq or something and it would have just been perfect. The staff were helpful and polite.
