    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.

    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!

    We enjoyed our stay here, the whole place had a really relaxed feel to it and staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly which was great as we arrived quite late to check in. The rooms had air-con which worked well and breakfast was great value for money; including an omelette, toast and fruit as well as a tea or coffee. Overall this hostel exceeded our expectation due to the lower price point compared to others in Colombo, would stay again!

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

    I got to the hostel having already booked a private room, I was told there was no private room and was told to cancel my booking and I could go in a dorm. However, I had already paid a deposit yet I was being charged the same rate as someone who had not booked. As it was late at night (just flown in) I took the dorm but did not enjoy my experience. The hostel was dirty, old and run down. The location is far from the train station and most touristy areas. I felt extremely let down at this hostel.
