    This is absolutely the hostel to stay at when you’re in Colombo. They have the most amazing breakfast I’ve ever had at a hostel. This place is amazing for digital nomads they have the perfect set up and nooks that double as a co working space. This will be my home whenever I am in Colombo. The staff give wonderful and honest recommendations. A friend recommend me to stay here and now I want to recommend this hostel to you. Enjoy!

    I stayed in three hostels in Sri Lanka and this place was, by far, the best! The dorms have curtains and lockers with the right amount of privacy and interaction. The staff is helpful and the common areas have everything you need! Also, it's centrally located in Kollupitiya which makes exploring Colombo a pleasant experience!

    Good hostel, breakfast amazing. Lots of places to hang out. Rooms were clean and tidy. Would stay here again. Only problem was WiFi stopped working at night time for one night.

    Great breakfast, nice helpful staff. A bit away from the centre but easy TUK TUK ride. We will stay here again when coming back through.

    The beds are comfy with massive lockers under them, and their own table, plug and USB sockets. The rooms are huge and really clean. There's loads of space in the lobby to sit and talk or drink the free tea and coffee. You're in a really nice area with easy access to tuk tuks to go everywhere. I met some great people here and really recommend the hostel.

    My one-night stay here was quite a breeze. Even though I landed at the hostel rather early from the airport (earlier than the official check-in time), I did not have to wait long. The person at the reception was welcoming and proactive. He was also kind enough to upgrade me to a double-bed dorm than a single one that I had booked. The dormitory was clean and comfortable with clean linen, clean bathrooms, and functional AC. The lockers and food could be improved further though.

    Good hostel. Love that the beds had privacy curtains. Reception staff really friendly and helpful. I overslept and checked out late and this was no issue. There were places to chill out in the hostel but there wasn’t really anyone socialising, so there wasn’t much of an atmosphere. This wasn’t a problem for me as I had just got to Colombo after a long flight so I just wanted to relax anyway. Would recommend for a chilled first night.

    My little island had a brilliant location and was very good for where we wanted to be. However, having booked a six dorm, we found out they didn’t exist and were put in an eight dorm. Breakfast was good with an option of continental and Sri Lankan. Staff were helpful with city advice.

    Great breakfast, huge lockers and private beds but this is a place to sleep and move on the next day, not a hostel that tries to crate a social atmosphere. Location is nothing special but it's cheap to get into downtown. Good for its value if you want a safe, clean place to sleep with good AC

    The people who worked at this hostel were very nice, the breakfast was delicious and the beds were also very comfortable!! However when I booked online I paid extra to be in a 6bed dorm, and when I showed up to check in they said “sorry we don’t have a 6bed dorm, only 8 and 12”. I was then put in a 12 bed dorm which was very loud. Then the following day I go to take a shower and I saw a MASSIVE cockroach in the bathroom, it was disgusting, and if there’s one that means there’s more somewhere.
