    Great place, clean, new. Some staff are very efficient. Small problems:1)internet is only in common space near the reception 2)rooms don't close with key so everybody can have access 3)very dim yellowish light in women's dorm. One can not read and see properly. I hurt myself as I did not see the metal handle of the bed (less than an inch distance from my eye). Pl. Do something!

    A decent starting point to familiarize yourself with the city and plan your way around Sri Lanka. There are areas to chill out and interact with fellow travelers and reasonable facilities to use. WiFi coverage and strength is good around the hostel. Staff are friendly and give useful advice. The bathroom facility is okay, but could do with more hooks for towels and the room feels like a sauna due to ventilation issues.
