    Lovely hostel with very comfy bed in the private room, with Egyptian cotton feel sheets. Finally had a hot shower in a clean bathroom in a room with air con after a long time. Short walk over the train tracks to a beautiful beach. Shops walking distance. Owner was very helpful and engaging. Breakfast is plentiful and tea wonderful. Will stay again if in Sri Lanka.

    The stuff was so welcoming from minute one, they gave me an upgrade in my room for the same price, and was the best first experience when arriving to Sri Lanka. Staff is friendly, internet works well, area is very nice and close the beach. Also, very close from train station if you need to travel in the country. Atmosphere is peaceful and friendly. Would definetiely recommend this hostel in Colombo.

    I had a wonderful stay at this hostel! The owner and her helper were so accommodating and helpful. I had my laundry done, relaxed by the beach and had a wonderful breakfast as per my request. The hostel was exceptionally clean and although quiet while I was there, it is very conducive to a social atmosphere. I highly recommend this hostel when staying in Colombo. It is located in a beautiful neighbourhood steps away from the beach! Thank you for a great stay!

    One minute from the beach, 5 minutes to shops/ food/ bus stops, lovely garden/ chill space, staff were friendly and helpful, had a great stay here! It may be a bit of a trek to central Colombo by bus or Tuktuk but after a day in the sweltering heat heading back here is an oasis of calm!

    The location is close to the beach and beach restaurants. When I stayed there weren’t many people. If you are looking for a place close to the beach, train station, and a quiet before starting your trip through Sri Lanka, this is the place for you.

    So the good thing about the place is that it is almost next to a beach and nearby market and shacks.However lacks on maintainance part as the washroom door was broken.Air conditioning remote was only given at night when all of us asked for it after spending the entire day without it in humidity.Need to manage it more professionally.
