Property Description

As a family with a wealth of travelling experience we identified the need for a genuine backpackers hostel in Colombo, one that fulfils the main things we wanted when we travelled, a place that was clean, comfortable, safe and not to forget, good value for money!

There are a variety of dorms and privates rooms, shared bathroom facilities, kitchen facilities and lounge area for you to chill and relax. Bed linen is provided.

There is a member of staff available 24 hours. We have numerous resources, hints and tips for you to enjoy all the beauties of Sri Lanka. Feel free to ask for any help. Free WiFi.

Dorms and rooms have lockers which you can secure using your own padlocks. There is no bar so bring your own! Feel free to have some beers (or arrack) in the lounge or even the roof top!

Make sure you look out for Pappa Fernando, he's looks like an orang-utan and is the boss of the family. Catch him for a whiskey! View House Rules

    We stayed here for a few nights at the very beginning of our trip and we're so glad that we did! The staff were extremely helpful and helped us plan our trip around Sri Lanka, to the point where they organised transport and accomodation for us! Lucky, the managers nephew, even took us to Negombo to help us hire a vehicle (and got us a good price). We got excellent advice on places to go. The staff have a genuine love for Sri Lanka and passionate about providing excellent assistance to customers.

    Our stay here was the perfect start to our month in Sri Lanka. We got a truly personal service from the friendliest family hostel. Khanthi and Lucky have a true love for their country and are proud to showcase it providing amazing advice on travel from first hand experience which is so valuable. The hostel is beautiful and spacious with everything you could need (Karrom Board, Table-tennis and lovely view from the rooftop) 10 min walk to the beach and plenty of good cheap local places to eat.

    Really lovely staff. The building itself is a really beautiful and spacious place. Difficult to find hostel at night though. Amazing common area. Would be the perfect place to go with a group of friends. The place even had a ping pong table! The cheapest way to get to the hostel is to take the airport shuttle bus to Fort Train station then take the train to Mount Lavinia train station. Hostel about 20 min walk from the station. This costs less than 150 rupees. Taxi costs about 3500 rupees.
