Ceylon Stayz is not just another hostel, it's an experience crafted by a family who genuinely loves what they do. From the moment I arrived, I felt welcomed and safe. The hosts went above and beyond, staying up late to give recommendations and help plan my route. The hostel is impeccably clean, and the staff truly care about their guests, always listening to and implementing suggestions. Highly recommend Ceylon Stayz for a warm, attentive and welcome stay

I stayed there for 3 days. The hostel is run by a father and son duo. They are super nice amd friendly more over they help you with everything from planning your whole trip on Sri Lanka to the to detailes such as where does you bus leave from. They know everything what is worth seeing what is not and they are more than happy to help you. The hostel is in the center so it is pretty nice to rest a bit there between visiting two museum. Also the place is super clean. Thanks again! Andreas
