    This was my second time staying at Moss Colombo. Both times I have stayed there the first night after arriving to Sri Lanka and it has been a good way to start my journey around the country. The room was clean and modern and the bed super comfy - much needed after many hours travelling. You can buy a nice breakfast and they have a cosy common room where you can plan the rest of your stay. The staff is also very helpful giving you great travel tips if you ask. Highly recommended!

    This is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at in my life. I can't say enough good things about it. Clean, peaceful, beautifully designed. It's got great showers, overhead rain showers. Super thick and comfy mattresses. Great furniture in the common areas. No more or less than you need. Lockers are big and spacious. And the staff is absolutely wonderful. Sam is one of the coolest guys ever and through his easygoing help and advice we were led to one of the greatest meals in Sri Lanka.

    This was our first stop on a 6-month international trip and it was lovely. We felt safe, clean, and looked after. It’s very centrally located, the WiFi worked reasonably well (though not in the dining area), and I’d stay here again if I was ever back in colombo.

    This is my very first hostel experience in Sri Lanka and I was a bit apprehensive about it but it turned out to be great. The place is very clean and tidy. Although, there isn't much hostel atmosphere but the the staff were absolutely fantastic. Mano, Kumar and Seelan were always at hand if you need anything and very helpful. They actually take pride in keeping the place spotless and interacting with guests. I made further 5 different bookings after my first experience with MOSS.

    We had a very comfortable stay at Moss Colombo hostel for our first night in Sri Lanka. The reception staff were really friendly and helpful and gave advice on good local places to eat. He also recommended where to go next for the rest of our travels, which proved to be the best option!

    Great staff. Clean minimalist rooms - nice place with an arty feel - some cool paintings around the place - many of which have a contemporary Japanese theme. A couple of great chill out areas with books spread around. Fast wifi. Hot showers. Soap, shampoo and clean fresh towels provided. Kettle and drinking water provided free A including fountain so bring a nalgene. Location good - close to colonial area Cinnamon Gardens. Plenty of good food options within 20m walk or 5-10 min Tuk Tuk. A+
