    The best hostel in Sri Lanka. Really recommend! Amazing atmosphere. Kasun look after the guests very well. End up staying much more than I imagine ...because of the services and the way that they treat the people.

    I was there during the bombings on the 21 of April, and I also lost my bag during my layover. The staff was so nice to me and helpful! We felt really safe in the hostel when the bombs happen. They kept the gate closed at all times and didn’t let anyone come in. We also didn’t have any food for dinner so they ordered something for us which was so greatly appreciated. The only thing is it was a bit smelly of humidity in the room. But honestly thanks so much for everything! Amazing stay!

    Had a great stay here, and we’ve booked to come back the night before we fly! We were staying at island the day of the horrific Easter Sunday Bombings and would like to thank the staff for the care and security they took, as well as providing dinner after curfew. The place itself is lovely and amazing value (we were in a standard twin). Great rooftop with a pool which created a good social atmosphere. Great start or finish venue for Sri Lanka!

    Fantastically equipped hostel with extremely helpful staff and a great rooftop area and pool. The place feels new it’s so clean and the dorms are very well equipped. We booked thinking it was in Colombo but it’s a quick train ride in and out and well worth it to not stay in a busy city, we would stay here again for sure

    Perfect location, 2 minute walk from the train station and 5 min walk to main road with food and shops on. Really plush modern hostel, super clean and comfy beds with sockets and lockable cabinets next to each bed. Delicious breakfast in the mornings too and lovely roof terrace.

    Very clean hostel just a few minutes to the beach. About 45 minutes from the airport with no traffic so it was pretty far but definitely worth our overnight stay. The breakfast was good, toast and curry options. The staff were very helpful with coordinating further travel and we would definitely stay again if we end up in Colombo!
