    This guesthouse is the perfect place for a short stay near the airport. The team is amazing. We checked in at 3 am without any problem and got a ride from the airport to the hostel. Breakfast is also great.

    Perfect hostel for a late night arrival into Colombo International Airport. Very nice hostel with great lounge and kitchen areas. Breakfast was included and is great. Hostel staff are lovely and incredibly helpful. Definitely catch a took took rather than a taxi from the airport as the hostel is really quite close and the taxi is very expensive. You will have to walk 5mins outside the airport to get the took took but it would definitely be worth it

    I have taken the points for staff just because of how poorly they handled my situation. So I booked one night. I paid and all was set. The next day in the morning I told them that I had some work to do and I would like to stay one more night. They replied that there was no problem and I could pay the amount later. At 5 PM they approached me telling me that dorms INCLUDING MY BED was booked and I could take single room paying double the amount! Very poorly handled situation!

    Fine for a stop over before the airport cause it’s so close but don’t expect to meet anyone. Far from both Colombo and Negombo and the beach

    Got to the hostel after a long flight. Had advertised what time we were coming. They had cancelled our room because somebody wanted the room for two consecutive days, and that was apparently enough to cancel our booking without any kind of notice. They didn't give our deposition back, so this place owes us money! Don't even consider booking this disgrace of a business.
