Property Description

As a family with a wealth of travelling experience we identified the need for a genuine backpackers hostel in Colombo, one that fulfils the main things we wanted when we travelled, a place that was clean, comfortable, safe and not to forget, good value for money!

There are a variety of dorms and privates rooms, shared bathroom facilities, kitchen facilities and lounge area for you to chill and relax. Bed linen is provided.

There is a member of staff available 24 hours. We have numerous resources, hints and tips for you to enjoy all the beauties of Sri Lanka. Feel free to ask for any help. Free WiFi.

Dorms and rooms have lockers which you can secure using your own padlocks. There is no bar so bring your own! Feel free to have some beers (or arrack) in the lounge or even the roof top!

Make sure you look out for Pappa Fernando, he's looks like an orang-utan and is the boss of the family. Catch him for a whiskey!

The lady who runs this hostel is an absolute angel. I had all of my belongings stolen on my first night in Colombo and nowhere would accept me, I called her at 4am and she was so nice about it and told me to come straight over and got up to let me in. I spent a good few days at the hostel afterwards and she helped me out in so many ways, making phone calls, offering food, giving me mango on an evening, the list goes on. A safe and secure home from home 🫶🏻
