    Amazing place! The staff is so helpful and accommodating. They helped us navigate out stay in Colombo and gave a lot of important tips about getting around. The house is BEAUTIFUL and has a lot of big common areas to get cozy in. It’s only a 3 min walk to the beach. A tuk tuk into the city was less than $3 and took about 20 min. I definitely recommend this place!

    The family that runs this hostel are so kind and helpful. They are incredibly welcoming and will help you with any questions you might have. The rooms are all very clean and well looked after. It’s only a 2 minute walk from the beach, and a 5 minute walk to the main road stores. It’s nice and quiet so it’s perfect to relax.

    The hostel was in a great location. Our room was spacious and clean. They had a very polite staff member who despite speaking very little English helped us out a lot! Our one suggestion would be to prepare for the power cut outs more. We understand there is very little you can do, but maybe sticking some candles in the room would help. Also, the generator that came on which powers the other building was right behind our room, so as well as being warm it was extremely noisy, so we couldn’t sleep.

    So we stayed here for 2 nights just to get out of the centre of Colombo and plan our trip around Sri Lanka. We were the only ones here both nights so I can’t really comment on the atmosphere but the two ladies that run it are very welcoming and helpful. It’s slightly off the main road so not noisy and right next to the beach with lots of restaurants. It also has a small basic kitchen. Would definitely recommend staying here (hopefully there will be more people) if you are around the area.

    Not recommended. Security facilities are not good and my friend lost his laptop. Also the rooms are not air-conditioned and the small tub is out of order all the time

    The website profile is full of lies. There is NO POOL (the entire area is closed off). There is NO ENSUITE BATHROOM in the dorms. And (most importantly) there is NO AIR CONDITIONING in the dorms. I was the only person in my room the first night. I woke up fainting from heat exhaustion because the room was unbearably hot. The second night there were 2 other girls in my room, and we all slept in the common area because the room was unbearable. Staff are never there. Cockroaches everywhere.
