    Had a lovely stay at this hostel. Stayed two nights. The staff were really helpful, and friendly. The breakfast is really good. The location is also very good, since it is close to everything.

    Good fun for what it was, which was a place to crash for our last couple of days in Sri Lanka. The staff is nice to serve us breakfast and let us in late at night. I felt really safe there and the location was super convenient. I found negombo to be the perfect place to end our two weeks of running around. I really suggest this place, good value for money!

    The couple were really friendly and helpful, rooms were quite small but clean and all had mosquito nets. There wasn't much to do around there but the restaurants were well priced!

    - Very good value for Money - basic but ok for the real backpacker on the last night. - Very hot in the dorm room / no air. - You can ask for an adaptor.

    The staff was friendly, but there were a few misunderstandings - Even though we called in advance to make sure that someone would let us in at our arrival at 3am, it took almost an hour before someone opened the door. It was clean and air conditioning worked well. The outside area of the hostel is ok but definitely does not like the pictures. The person who was working there didn't really speak English. The owner promised to come to the hostel several times, but never showed up.

    Good for one night stop over. Polite family who are happy to help if you ask. No breakfast included. Was only there with one other person, so no atmosphere. Went to Sea Joy restaurant/guest house just a few metre walk on your right when exiting New Negombo which had more life!

    Nice clean hostel which is set back slightly from the main road in Negombo so it’s quite peaceful. I stayed here for 1 night just as somewhere to crash after flying into Colombo and it was ideal for that. The lady who runs it is lovely and recommended a nice place for me to eat dinner plus made a lovely breakfast. No atmosphere as I had a 6 bed dorm to myself and I rated slightly low on security as the dorm didn’t lock, tiny lockers but not one big enough for my bag and the front gate is open.
