Literally in an abandoned building. Noisiest place ever next to train station/building works/garages (?). No locks on doors. Host kept walking in and out of rooms at all times of day and night? Decent facilities and cleanliness once inside. Felt like being in someone’s home haha.

Don't ever book this place. It's horrible. It looks value for money while booking but it's really terrible. The dorms are so tiny, bedsheets seems unhygienic and bathrooms are so tiny that you will feel claustrophobic. Plus the area being in the heart of Colombo is really shady. I would personally not recommend. The only good thing here was the staff who were friendly and helpful

they had bed bugs however tried to claim it was ants in the bed, which is just as bad. I did not end up sleeping here as it was so disgusting and located in what looked like an abandoned building. Definitely would not recommend. Pay a little extra and stay somewhere clean and safe!
