    This place is in a really nice area close to the beach in Mount Lavinia. The hostel is a great place to meet people, beds were big and comfy and the rooms are air conditioned which made it easy to sleep in the heat. JD was so welcoming and is a perfect example of how to introduce people to a hostel and to a country. He encouraged people to socialise and gave great advice (and is a general all round nice guy). All the staff were great.

    This hostel is great! I found there wasn’t a lot to do in Colombo but it was super close to the beach and the host is super lovely and will help you out for trains etc. The people staying there were really nice and welcoming! Very close to a supermarket and close to mount Lavinia station so was very easy to get around. Definitely come back for the atmosphere

    Best place to start your Sri Lanka trip imo. JD runs the place and is a backpacker himself. He knew Sri Lanka better than I know my hometown and had exactly the type of travel advice that I wanted regarding the country. Beds are comfy and aircon was a lifesaver. Hot brekky is included. There's also 'donation' based You can also get a discount on tuktuk rental and the rental office is less than a km away :)

    I love everything about this hostel except that there is no wifi. Buy a SIM card at the airport for $4 and then come stay here!! It's honestly so comfortable. I immediately felt safe and as if I was surrounded by friends. I loved it so much I stayed here both at the beginning and end of my trip. Definitely the most comfortable hostel in Sri Lanka! Always fun activities and lowkey parties happening. Just a great time overall. Thank you for the great experience!!
