    Although I only stayed one night I can say that my time at Colombo City Jumbo Hostel was very pleasant. The staff is lovely and the facilities were clean and a great price. The dormitory even has AC which is amazing to have included during these hot and humid days. I plan to come back for a few nights before leaving Sri Lanka, as well!

    Very nice staff, comfy rooms and super breakfast, what is included in the price. The hostel is located close to the trainstation and main bus station, so it's really worth to stay here after arriving or before leaving.

    I stayed three nights. Lovely. Bell is a wonderful person. Always trying to help. Rooms have good enough space to move around. Nice big bath rooms. Good breakfast tea & coffee all day. They have place for storage. They also have SIM card offering at a better price than airport.

    Really nice and friendly owner. Accommodated our late check in and made us our free breakfast earlier than normal so we could catch an earlier train. The rooms are basic and no AC but good value for money! They also helped us to get a cheap tuk tuk to the train station!

    Cheap and friendly staff. Not the best atmosphere, not a place you want to hang around at, but fine for sleeping.

    Staff is extremely impolite, showing no respect to the guests. They tried to overcharge me and simultaneously put me in a cheaper room that I had booked. Didn't get a towel although it was included in the price. The door to the hostel does not lock. The lockers in rooms can be broken into in 5 minutes. Decrepit bathrooms. The sink literally falling off the wall. Cocroaches and ants in the place. Not properly clean. The Internet barely working. Literally the worst hostel I have ever been to. RUN!

    I was told check in was 24/7. it is not. A large van was blocking the hostel door and the door was locked. I was left outside at 3am for a long time repeatedly ringing the bell and knocking the door loudly but no one answered. I tried other hostels but due to the time and short notice all the local ones were either full or closed and so I had to sleep on a park bench. Waste of time, Waste of money, don't stay here unless you arrive in the day ( and even then no guarantee they'll be there).
