    the hostel is situated in a perfect location for bus/train station. the staff is sooo kind, we felt like home. we stayed there 2 times, and the second time we arrived very late at night (4,30 am) because of our bus delay, but the owner waited awake and threated us so kindly. very clean both the rooms and the bathrooms/common areas. we really recommend this hostel to visit colombo! :)

    The staff at the hostel is wonderful. They cooked wonderful food and shared meals with me. They negioted a great price with the taxi driver that saved me a lot of money. The location is right by the train station and major market, super convenient!

    The old lady woke up 2am to help me check-in and woke up early 6 to make breakfast so I could catch the trainstation which is 5min walk. Ideal location but the entrance a bit hard to find. It's inside this flat you enter and the stairs are on the right side. It's on the second floor. Best cheap and well located for your one-day arrival stay in Colombo.

    Not a bad hostel but has a lack of common area so isn’t very sociable. Beds are comfy and the breakfast is good. The issue is with the manager who is very intense. Aka Telling you what do, waking you up in the morning for breakfast and generally being a bit over the the top. Good location to train station and good value for money as you get breakfast

    A very basic hostel. A bit sketchy to get to if it is dark. We arrived in the early hours after a late flight and had to wake them up to let us in. The free breakfast is good though.

    If you need a cheap place to sleep for a night before/after getting a train in Colombo, then maybe go here. Otherwise, avoid it. This is the first hostel that ever told me I'd have to pay to be in the hostel after check out. I told the owner I'd return in the late afternoon briefly and at night to get my bag and leave for an 11pm flight. When I came in the afternoon, she told me I needed to pay but then just told me I had to leave. Not nice. Overall bad vibes. Owner just wants $. Not very clean.

    Weirdest and worst hostel I’ve ever stayed at. Location is near the train station but if you try and ask for help with train times etc. Staff were rude and didn’t help at all. Really difficult to find especially in the dark, even the locals have no idea where this place is, it’s pretty far inside an apartment building and pretty scary as a solo traveller. Awful facilities, no sink at all? Ran out of drinking water and it’s nowhere near a shop so after a long journey I had nothing to eat or drink

    Would have given lower but after a battle got a refund for our remaining nights. Ladies running it we’re excessively noisy in early hours of the morning when checking others in and doing laundry. Bed bugs in another persons bed, dirty and dodgy location. Our uber driver didn’t want to let us out and followed us to make sure we got in ok. Thin and small bed. Not all chargers in room worked. Bit of miscommunication over whether or not we could use the kitchen. Decent breakfast.
