I came to this place after seeing some reviews online. The staff was always great and they have a nice lounge area upstairs. They let me keep some things there for 2 months while I traveled around. I was a little worried, but everything was safe and sound when I returned. Great folks!

Stayed in Colombo for 8 weeks whilst doing a placement and stayed in this hostel the entire time we were there!

Location: Located in Mount Lavina just south of the city centre. It's right on the beach which has numerous bars and restaurants. It has good links to other cities as near to the train station and the main road for buses.

Facilities: The only place we stayed in Sri Lanka with a kitchen which is good for when you want some home cooked Western food. An amazing, colourful rooftop terrace for chilling on. Stayed in a private room which was nice for the price!

Atmosphere: It was not uncommon for the hostel to be full as it was a place people came to at the start of their trip and when they came back around so it was good to pick up some tips for your travels along with asking Michael at reception! There were always people chilling on the rooftop so was a lively hostel!

Would not have stayed anywhere else in Colombo!

Overall a great place to stay. Micheal the manager was extremely helpful, location isn't very central but still right on the beach and with lots of food places around and easy train or bus into town. Would definitely stay again.

The hostel is located in Mt. Lavinia which is quite far to the south of Colombo and the airport is to the north of Colombo. Hence it takes a long time to travel to and from the airport. Place was in need of some changes. The bathrooms were very small and not very well lit. Wifi only works on the rooftop. But, it is just of the beach of Mt Lavinia which is great. Besides, for that price point it is not fair to complain a lot.

Stayed for the first 3 nights in Sri Lanka, Michael was very helpful and welcoming. The rooms are basic but all you need for exploring Mt Lavinia and Colombo. NB: though the hostel is not in Colombo you can catch a 20 min train to Colombo Fort along the coast for pennies. Roof garden is lovely, lots of options for food in surrounding area and literally 2 minutes from the beach.
