    Perfect hostel for airport transit to and from Colombo Airport. I arrived quite late and the guy at reception let me use his uber eats account to order food. He was very helpful and also arranged a tuk tuk to the airport in the morning. It was all very easy and comfortable

    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.

    We stayed for one night to catch our flight the next day. It’s close to the airport. Good atmosphere but this is always depending on who you meet. The Ac in our room did not work and when reporting it we got a new room without questions. Breakfast is ok. The property is very clean and hot shower is working too. Thanks for a relaxing night.

    Nearish the airport in a less noisy neighborhood. Friendly staff with a lovely breakfast. Accommodations were simple at best. Best for a quick stop.

    I was not allowed in and was never given any reason that made sense. They said it wasn't a hostel. Then said it was only for girls, which I am. Sent me packing in the rain at night even though I had a reservation. Super sucky!
