    I was only here for a night but would be more than happy to stay here again. Cute little place nestled up in the mountains - amazing views and nice atmosphere. Close to town and the various tourist sites.

    Very nice, sociable hostel with super friendly helpful staff. The breakfast for sale was amazing and the rooms were clean and spacious enough with big security lockers. The only thing I think they need to improve on is putting mosquito nets on the beds, When I stayed we had a lot of mosquito's in the room and no nets to protect you. Other than that great value for money! Thanks

    This was a comfortable hostel - super great value for money! We had read some previous reviews and were a bit apprehensive about dealing with a particular staff member but either we didn’t encounter him, or the issue has been dealt with because all our dealings with the staff were really very positive & helpful! The female dorm was comfortable but the bathroom does get a big stagnant as it never dries - cool design, with the waterfall tap though! Great location too! Would definitely recommend.

    My friend and I stayed in City reach for 5 days. The hostel is great. The female dorm we had was the best. The owner and all people who work there are very lovely people and will help with you everything you need. The maintenance of the bathroom could improve, but overall we loved staying there and would definitely come back ! Thank you again guys.

    Set in an amazing place, staff weren’t very helpful. They don’t do free breakfasts like many of their competitors.

    Fun, small hostel. Nice location. The main big dorm is right next to reception so can be very noisy

    I spent one night here and although I got 82 insect bites during the night - not mosquito bites - I think they were from the bed as I did not have this issue anywhere else in Sri Lanka. Very disappointed with this! Although I was happy with the hostel aside from this problem

    Really friendly welcoming staff. Accommodation good but due to location there were cockroaches and mice/rats. There were some droppings on the bed. Otherwise really nice friendly stay.

    Unfortunately the only positives I can give this hostel is that it’s in a great location and it has the potential to be a great hostel. - rats easily get into the rooms from the roof. I saw multiple rats whilst here and even saw them crawling across the bed and into the bin to get chucked out food. - rooms are not cleaned daily so rats come for bins. The floor was not clean, bathroom smelt. -rats +not clean daily = unhygienic -no lock on door at all. Felt really unsafe as only person in room
