    Good location and close to many sites you will likely want to go. The room had amazing air conditioning and the staff were very nice.

    I had a lovely stay at Lilac. The rooms were really tidy and the a/c was great to have! We checked in with the very friendly host and he immediately recommended places in the area to eat/see. We ended up seeing a movie at Majestic City, which was walkable. Full kitchen downstairs and water jugs to fill our bottles. Tv and couches were available as well. Lockers in our dorm were a great addition. We will definitely be staying here again :)

    It was a lovely place. Not for partying but it was so worth the money as the location was central Colombo. It was right next to McDonald’s too which is good. The staff were super helpful and couldn’t provide more it was clean and WiFi was good

    Like a little hidden gems in Colombo city ! Location is very convenient to access anywhere .and they have the best quality bunk bed i have ever seen in Sri Lanka! Just hope they could allow the guest to cook in the kitchen then it would be perfect!

    Had a pretty good stay here. I was impressed with the quality of the bunk beds - good size, clean and study, and the dorm rooms - immaculately clean! The bathroom was also clean, although it was a little dated and not as new and plush as the dorm rooms. I also struggled to get sole warm water so the shower I had was pretty cold! Apart from that, can't fault the place and it was a great place to stay.

    Really nice place. There was a tv and sofas, which was handy as it was raining outside. Downside was that the bathroom door didn't close so got stuck.

    Nice spacious room with a hot shower. Was good to have filtered water available but would've been nice if it was chilled! We did have a moment where we wanted to leave the hostel early and found we were locked in. This wasn't great and the contact numbers listed on the reception door weren't up to date. We did manage to slip out a side door though and the staff were very apologetic afterwards (and friendly throughout the rest of our stay). Location okay if you're happy to walk lots!

    This hostel is lovely with great facilities however the bedroom we were in was absolutely infested with mosquitos!!! We put so much repellent on before bed and woke up in the night covered in bites, applied more and woke up in the morning with more bites than we’d ever got at once before! I noticed a lad on the bed next to me also woke up a few times to apply more repellent also.
