    Good location if you have an early flight but quite far away from any shops or the town. I was totally alone when I stayed so can't comment on the atmosphere but the balcony is huge & you have use of the kitchen.

    Sweet hostel, which was more like a big house with bunk beds in the rooms. Great as a base before going to their airport. Like all the reviews I agree that the only reason to stay is for the airport. Has a station nearby so can be reached from the main areas around it and the airport is obviously only a short tuk tuk ride away (which the staff can book for you). There’s also some nice authentic restaurants nearby for dinner!

    Absolutely fine for what it was - a stopover close to the airport after a late flight. Owner was nice enough to let us crash in the double room as it was free rather than the dorm room. Breakfast was really yum!

    Stayed here for one night after getting in from the airport. Not far, tuk tuk cost me 700 so don’t pay more than that. Wouldn’t want to stay her more than a night. Staff was friendly and helpful, just wish they had mosquito nets on the beds.

    Nice place, you can get to the airport easily by bus (don't get a tuk tuk, way too expensive)

    I feel bad leaving a slightly negative review, because the place was good enough and the staff were nice, but I got absolutely destroyed by mosquitoes. They had a sign on the bedroom wall warning me, but that doesn’t excuse the fact that there were no window screens, open windows, no mosquitoe net, and not even a bedsheet to get under. When I say I got destroyed, I mean ~80-90 bites covering my whole body. I didn’t realize it was so bad until 2 or 3 am, so there was nowhere for me to go by then

    Stayed here for 2 nights before flying from Colombo Airport. The hostel had no atmosphere at all although mainly because people weren’t staying for long. Very far from the beach. The rooms were very warm as there is only a fan. OK value for money but atmosphere let it down.
