    I stayed for 5 days Most people were passing through on their way around the island while I stayed there. The staff were really nice . Really solid owner , he looks after you, very helpful. There’s still a bit of work going on refurbishing but overall its a very good hostel . It’s 5 minutes walk to the beach , and the bus + mt Livinia train station are close by as well .The food in the area is excellent , you’ll get acquainted with Uber eats. Plenty of bars around also . Stay , I recommend it

    Dorms were very hot, but I think you have to expect not much air con when on a budget traveling through Sri lanka. Takes about 40 mins to an hour to get to the main town by tuktuk. Staff were very helpful and gave good advice. My girlfriend and I hadn't really planned a route when we first arrived and the owner gave us a great itinerary.

    I write this review with full awareness of the hard times in which Sri Lankan tourism has had since the devastating bombing in April and how this has effected many businesses. My experience of Colombo Beach Hostel was average and I do believe this has a lot with the bombing. The manager Dinesh was lovely and helpful and we had an open talk about the challenges since however the lack of vibe and the expectations I had did not match the reality. I hope it gets better it has a lot of potential

    Currently, the photos do not match what the hostel looks like as even though they do not mention it in the hostel description, the hostel is being renovated. Absolutely no atmosphere, but this is due to the amount of people travelling to Sri Lanka has dropped dramatically since the Easter incident. Kitchen was covered with ants and other insects which made cooking and eating annoying. The place was really badly maintained. I recommend not coming here until they get everything under control again
