A very social hostel, for us a bit too social.When there are parties on the rooftop, it's can be quite loud until midnight.A/C was a bit too cool, we couldn't figure how to put it lower and off was too warm ☀️Very friendly owner!Only 400 LKR to do laundry, also got a place to hang up the wet clothes.Kitchen had all you needed to cook.Local Curry place opposite the hostel has amazing food!

The location wasn’t too far from things, and you are definitely paying for basic living. However me and my 2 friends all seem to have come away with bed bugs unfortunately, which shows through the hostels uncleanliness. The hostel could definitely do with a good clean.

Nice hostel, close to plenty of restaurants, a big store and the beach. Lots of common/chill areas and a big kitchen. Only issues were super squeaky beds and mosquitoes in the dorm.
