    I loved staying at the Hostel First! Location closest to the airport but also just few minutes bus ride to Negombo city. Staff is very fri badly and helpful and overall facilities are the best I've been to so far! I even prolonged my stay because it was too good :D

    Spend there only our first night after a late arrival by plane so it was quite a short night before we left again. Can't really tell something about the facilities or the people but the bathroom could have been a bit bigger and also cleaner and we've missed a sink there..

    Good place to crush either after late arrival or before departing Sri Lanka. It is extremely close to the international airport. Tuk-tuk cost me 400 rupees during night. Other than that, the hostel is located right at a very busy main road. Don't expect too much peace and quiet.

    Staff was really friendly, came out to greet us and showed us round. Was unfortunately very quiet - only one other guest, this may be due to it being low season. Room was very basic, quite dark - no day light. Great location, 15 min taxi from the airport. Breakfast provided, although we didn’t have any so can’t comment. Not the best area - main road with a few shops & restaurants around. Decent for a stay before/after a flight but not the cheapest.
