    I really enjoyed my stay. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The rooms are well kept and very safe. I was given a private safe for my passport and other bits. Location is ideal, because it is near everything. Walking distance from the beach. I felt very welcomed and will be back. Thank you! Alexander.

    Such a lovely hostel! The pod style dorm room is lovely with a security drawer right next to the bed and large cupboards/counters for big backpacks and toiletries ect. Air con is great. The bathrooms are really nice, great hot water shower and everything is super clean. Rooftop is amazing with views of the sea and a pool, plus loungers and a kitchen. Wish it had been busier but we had a great time playing cards with the owner and his friends. He can answer all ur Sri Lanka related questions!

    It was a really nice clean and chill hostel in a good location that is situated on the coast and super close to local food shops and supermarket. It has a really nice rooftop Balcony and pool which has great views of the city and coast and is a perfect spot to have some beers and watch the sunset. If you want it is also only a few mintues walk down to the beaches where you can explore the area better. I definitely recommend this place if you want to be out of colombo city!!

    Ideal location 2 mins from Mt Lavinia local train station. Neat air-con rooms that are never full. Best news us the pool on the top deck. Amazing view!! Deal linking this hostel to the famous Mt Lavinia luxury Hotel allows you to use their private beach!! Don't stay in Colombo, but base yourself here and commute each day.

    Nice hostel, lovely rooms and good bathrooms. There was no restaurant to buy breakfast or drinks. The pool was dirty, not clean enough to feel safe to swim in. The views from the top balcony were beautiful.

    There is no hostel there. They just scammed us the hostel is locked down due to the renovation works. Because of them we have to book a hotel there on very higher prices. Ridiculous
