    Loved this hostel. Loved it so much i extended my booking and rebooked to come back. Very helpful and knowledgeable gals on reception put me in touch with Island Scuba,so i got to experience some of the best wreck diving and definitely the best diving in Sri Lanka. Hostel is in a great location - 1 block back from the beach and 15 mins along the beach to the Dive Centre. Very clean dorms and bathrooms. Lovely rooftop chill out area with kitchen facilities. Wifi included. Everything you'd want!

    I stayed two nights and enjoyed the facilities at the hostel. It has a really good open kitchen on the rooftop and plenty of areas to sit and relax. It is also very close to Colombo Beach which is nice if you want to go for a walk or have some food or drinks near the beach.

    We were supposed to stay at the hostel for two nights but we had to get out after just one. The hostel itself looked nice, the rooftop is great and the Sri Lankan receptionist was really kind and welcoming. The owners of the hostel (two European women) were just incredibly rude. They never smiled and were angry all the time for no appearant reason. The dorms we stayed in were horrible to; the fan barely worked, there’s no window, the facilities were outdated and the room was full of mosquitos.

    6 bed dorm was extremely dark, dingy and hot with lots of mosquitoes. At night when I was under the mozzy net and on the bottom bunk so wasn’t getting any breeze from the small ceiling fan it felt very claustrophobic (this is just my experience, the bigger dorms looked a lot lighter and more spacious). Water pressure was great and WiFi was okay in the rooms and great in the common area. The hostel are in the process of improvement. Staff were great. 10 mins from beach and a bus away from town.

    Worst hostel I've ever stayed in. No hot water in the shower, mosquitoes and bugs in my room, no atmosphere, in the middle of nowhere. Even if you'd pay me I wouldn't go back.
