    Very chilled out hostel, the guys running it are great and ready to help at any enquires. Met loads of friendly backpackers. Also, they have a little kitchen and the chef food is very recommended!

    The rooms are clean, the showers were great and the staff are so kind. Very comfy, homey vibe. It’s a bit out of the way of most sight seeing you might want to do in Colombo but it’s in a very nice, safe, quiet neighborhood and you can walk through Independence Square and/or Cinnamon Gardens to get to the city center which I thought was a lovely walk. ATM and small supermarket nearby as well, no drinks around though so byob if you want beers!

    Nice atmosphere and a great kitchen where you can order food and buy drinks. Staff are helpful and friendly making you feel welcome. Really nice communal spaces. Downside is location. Bit of a way out of town so you will want to get tuk tuks (use pick me app) and the road to the back (which the private room backed onto) was loud. But still a great option for a quick stop in Colombo!

    We spent 2 nights here, beds were very comfortable and had lockers big enough for our valuables. The chill area was very nice and comfortable and they provide delicious breakfast/dinner. No in house laundry services but we took it to ‘wash myway’ and it was very good

    Simple no frills pass through hostel when arriving in Colombo. Guys are helpful with advice on train times, tuk tuks etc as the majority of travellers have either just arrived or are about to depart Sri Lanka. Stayed in a 6 bed all girl dorm which was clean. Beds are fine with charging points and lights and an ensuite bathroom (which could have been cleaner). Had the pancake for breakfast - wouldn't' recommend + expensive if you'r watching your budget - certainly compared to local food.
