    Tony was the best host in my whole 3 weeks in Sri Lanka....he helped me to do a few things that I wouldn't have figured out on my own. I kinda tried to shy away from asking his help but he insisted. Thanks so much Tony, you are a wonderful host!!

    The alleged "swimming pool" was an overground one more suited to children but all else was absolutely fine about the room and the breakfast and the location and the staff

    We got this place recommended by a waiter Fromm colombo who grew up in kandy. It really is a great place to stay. Very clean and Staff are very friendly and helpful. It’s only a 15 minute walk in to the centre although we get a tuk tuk back because it’s a strap climb after a big curry. The view from the hotel is better than any you’ll get. We got a double room for £14 or Rs3000. And breakfast was an extra £2.20 or Rs500. 100% Worth the money and would recommend.

    Ken really makes the place what it is. He works too hard and will help you with whatever you need. I slept on the top bed some of the time I was there. It shakes really hard when you climb up. I felt bad for the guy below me even though I tried to be really careful. Many mosquitos if you can deal with it and the bathroom was a bit uncomfortable, but for the value, I'm not complaining. I'm just explaining.

    Had a very nice time here. The staff were brilliant, and the hostel was very nice. Easy bus journey from the train station, and easy to walk to restaurants. Can't talk too much but the atmosphere, as I was the only one there as it was off season, but the staff made me feel very welcomed all the same.

    Staff were brilliant, very attentive and informative. Told you where to go and how. Really helpful and friendly. I’m not a fan of Colombo, but was only here at the start of my trip- good to chill at the end of the trip waiting for a flight perhaps. However I was the only person there (but that’s not the hostels fault) Would recommend for a quiet one.

    We enjoyed our stay at Lanka hostels. The bed was comfy and clean. There is a nice lounge area to chill. It is only a short walk to restaurants etc. Tony was very helpful. The only thing, if you book on hostel world please check your balance when checking out and compare to hostel world email and deposit paid as there seemed to be a bit of confusion about the outstanding balance when we checked out.
