    Fantastic staff, extremely helpful. The place is down a side street which is dark at night but keep going, it’s down the end of the road. Beds were comfy, pod set up, showers were small but did the job. Next to a supermarket which is handy and 2 nice places to eat nearby. Nice place!!

    It is a very clean hostel and a good AC in the room. Staff is great, but there isn't so much happening. Free coffee and free tea makes you welcome as soon as you arrive and the hostel is located close to the beach.

    Situated at the best place of Colombo where everything is accessible. There is a nearby Super Market where you can find almost anything and cheap. I stayed for a day and visited every hyped touristic temple and place in Colombo.

    The hostel is in a good location of Colombo near the waterfront. Rooms and bathrooms were clean. Staff wasn’t the most friendly and there wasn’t much of an atmosphere. The restaurant attached to the hostel called Bowl’d was quite good. Overall an alright place to stay for a night before getting a train/bus the next day.

    Comfy beds, charging ports in pod, pods were larger than average hostel. Restaurant next door was delicious. Security is not good, not even a key for the room. Could not get hot water working in the showers. Bathroom smelled bad. No atmosphere or opportunity to meet others. Staff played music early in the morning and late at night which was very frustrating, they should at least wait until the afternoon to play music!!!

    It’s a very straight forward hostel. Beds were nice and location was alright. Security was a bit troublesome as the door to our room had no lock on it. There was also only one shower for the guys bathroom, and 2 toilets. The manager, or at least the guy who said he was the manager, was very rude and not professional. The overall vibe was not at all social, and there was no place to really hangout. Wouldn’t come back

    The front of the hostel looks appealing from the photos however when you go inside it’s not that great. There was a smell of stale smoke, no where to store luggage. The bathrooms and showers were dirty and smelly . You could hear staff talking outside the room all night. The only positivities is that there is a kitchen with a communal fridge and the restaurant ‘bowl’d’ attached to the hostel was yummy!

    Hostel was ok, overpriced for what they have offered. Big selling point to book this hostel was the pool, which sadly was dirty and didn't dare to use it. No real communal area and no activities or any tour/taxi recommendation from their part.
