    I believe I was the only guest in this hostel but it was perfect as I stayed here after arriving late from the airport and left early to catch a bus. It was close to the bus station, super clean, almost felt like a hotel! The included breakfast was awesome and the two staff members I met were really nice. Would recommend!

    Excellent bedrooms with wood bunks, comfy mattresses, crisp white sheets, and air conditioning. Bathroom is a (clean) cement box with a tile indentation for the shower (hot water). Staff is kind and accommodating. Zero atmosphere and a location about 1.5k from most of the stuff in town. Great place to come after the airport.

    I stayed at Ripple Jay as a final beach stop within easy distance to the airport. There were only two other people staying there, and they were out for the evening so I had the hostel to myself. The staff member there was very friendly but she didn't speak much English. Breakfast was simple but tasty, and actually better than most other hostels I'd stayed in in Sri Lanka. Very clean and air conditioned, but very empty.

    I stayed here for 2 nights, the girls dorm is clean and private girls bathroom attached. Only a few mosquitoes, so maybe some spray at night but very comfortable room. Has ac too so i even got cold a little. The location is a bit far from everything, but i felt like there wasn't much in negombo anyway its just a good place to stay near the airport and you can easily walk from hostel to shops for food. The owner was helpful booking onward travel and providing food when i was hungry.

    Only stayed for one night as I arrived late into Colombo. Had everything I needed for good nights sleep. Not somewhere I’d stay for more than a stop over close to the airport.

    A good choice if a bit far out. I booked the night beforehand and there was nobody there when the tuk dropped me off. Location is very quiet. Staff are friendly. Bathroom is inside the women's dorm, so extra traffic coming through the door is odd. Food was lovely! Staff was helpful in figuring out a rooming change but it took about an hour with the manager to get the payment sorted. Sri Lankans prefer** and were unfamiliar with ** procedures. Overall, decent place.

    Very friendly and helpful staff, clean room, but location wise it wasn't working out for me. No good restaurant nearby and town and beach are not on walking distance (kind of in the middle).

    Friendly staff, good aircon, comfy bed and good sized locker. Was able to show up around midnight from airport and easily shown to room. Negatives were cold shower and there are rats (not in the dorm room but in the house and walls.)

    It is a very quiet place. The staff is helpful even though she can't speak well English. She tried her very best to communicate with me.
