    I throughly enjoyed my stay here! We stayed in a private room the first night which was a bit pricey but rebooked for two extra nights in the shared dorm. The staff were super helpful and friendly, and they succeeded in creating a social atmosphere with the few tourist that were staying there. The dinner that was cooked in house was great, the showers were hot, rooms and bathroom were clean. I would definitely recommend and stay there again!

    The staff is so chill and so helpful! This was a good stopping point as I was beginning my trip and getting my itinerary sorted. The location is good--walking distance to some really good restaurants/boutiques in a cute little neighborhood.

    It was a good place to start my adventure around Sri Lanka as the staff were very helpful with recommendations on where to go on my trip. It was very quiet but that was to be expected as it is low season still. The bed was comfy and the hostel clean. So overall a good stay.

    Best hostel shower I’ve ever had! Really nice place with decent beds and facilities. Not much of an atmosphere while I was staying but nevertheless still a good hostel. Would happily stay again

    Solid location, with impressive facilities. Everything very modern and fancy. Plug sockets galore. Very instagrammable breakfasts. So if that’s your thing, this could be your thing. Me? I’m rubbish at the gram, so I wasn’t too bothered. I reckon this place needs more of an ambience, but don’t ask me how to fix that, I’m just a humble window cleaner. 8/10 fancy? Yes. Fun? Maybe.

    Beds were fine, bathroom was spacious (in 6 bed female dorm). There wasn’t much atmosphere but that was probably because of lack of tourists in Sri Lanka overall at the moment. Left early because of this. Overcharged the quoted price onlineby about 1500 rupees and when I left early would give no refund on the extra nights. But it’s fine! Colombo is pretty hectic, would recommend southern beach towns more!
