    This place has one of the nicest rooftops I’ve seen in Sri Lanka, the guys that run it are super friendly and accommodating! They’ve cooked us multiple meals from breakfasts to dinner, if you’re coming to the Colombo area this is a good spot to stay

    This was our second time staying here on our Sri Lanka vacation. As before if was a great time :). The hosts were extremely helpful and polite, our room was just as you expect a hostel room to be and the other guests provided great company :). Would still highly recommend staying here for arrival and departure into Colombo.

    The staff and location are worth booking here. Very friendly and helpful with finding bookings and transport and a 2 minute walk to Mount Lavinia beach. Lovely atmosphere, rooftop terrace with free tea and coffee and beers for 300LKR (about €2). The only set back was the AC room had no lockers, I was with one other person and then alone the second night so wasn’t a huge problem but if the room had been full I’d have felt uneasy about leaving my belongings out even though the door is locked.

    Very Good

    This was a bit of a stay of two halves. My first day and night involved trails of biting red ants around the kitchen and outside areas, and rats jumping around the rubbish bins in the communal kitchen. When the manager visited, everywhere was cleaned up and it looked a lot better the second night. The rooftop was great, and air con room is recommended. Mt Lavinia is a great place to stay straight from or to the airport, and the beach was perfect to swim in and lots of beachside bars to sit at.

    Very Good

    Nice roof top, very nice and helpful staff. Cool atmosphere with all the plants surrounding the hostel. Cleanliness was okay, but not as good as expected for the price. Same with the value of the private room itself: Kind of dark and hot with a noisy fan. But: Good breakfast and if you shop the ingredients the staff will prep a great curry for you. All in all a solid experience for a short stay.

    I stayed here in a private room. I didn’t realise it was just a fan no A/C so it was boiling. I also had no WiFi in my room which wasn’t ideal. The most concerning for me was one of the guests said some of his stuff had gone missing and he suspected one of the staff. The kitchen was also very unclean. There was a huge infestation of fireants meaning we couldn’t even boil the kettle. There was also regular appearances of a rat and mouse so didn’t feel comfortable eating there.

    It’s very far from Colombo. It’s in Mount Lavinia, not Colombo. The room I had was not what I booked, and it was so incredibly hot that it was impossible to sleep. There was a fan, but it didn’t make a difference because it was so clogged with dust. When I woke up one morning, there was a cockroach in my bag. Hard to find plugs to charge things. BUT the man who runs it is very lovely and nice, and the food on site is delicious (but very expensive.) overall, I’d stay elsewhere next time.
