    I’ve randomly decided to stop everything in my life and head for a trip that none of it was planned, the only thing I did was to book few nights in Groove Hostel and I am so glad I did. The place has nice vibes, it’s chill, clean, spacious and has everything any kind of traveler needs. The guys working there are amazing and would help in any way they could, going above and beyond what a receptionist is supposed to do. A special thanks to Sedrik for being the kind of person that he is, a great 1

    Cedric was incredible. Provided a fantastic service, detailing everything that we would require for our trip. Any questions we had further he would give a great detailed answer. Couldn't ask for a better hostel manager. The hostel is cheap, great facilities and good vibe. Honestly can't fault the place, thank you Groove House Hostel staff!

    Great place and people. Super clean, nice outdoor area, easy to meet other travellers. Staff were cheerful and super helpful. Aircon is amazing, beds comfortable and shower is warm! Some of the food at the restaurant is over priced for what you get (like the smoothie bowls..). The location is fine, it’s Colombo and you have to get a cheap tuk tuk around and about anywhere anyways. Would stay here again for sure.

    Really nice hostel. Great social areas with a common room and a cafe which serves delicious food at a good price. The room was nice and clean, however very close to the main road which meant a fairly sleepless night due to all the traffic. Bathroom was okay, as you would expect in a hostel. WiFi was okay, better in the communal areas. The hostel were able to arrange a tuk tuk to the train station which was helpful.

    Staff were not very attentive, but kind when you approached them. Not that many people there, so not much of a vibe (but it was low season). I could see the common room and garden have great potential if there were more people.
