Not the best place to come if you want decent wifi or a shower that gets you wet. The airport taxi man who also works at the hotel, complained that we were late! Then he decided to stop at a convenience store for 5 minutes.
Hotel room was clean and very big, with a good bed. However the shower was terrible, no water pressure what so ever!
On the website we booked through they said the rooftop terrace was being refurbished, in reality they are doing major refurb of the whole hotel, the building work starts at 6am and it's extremely loud! Also three times during our 2 day stay, members of staff and maintenance people came into the room without any prior warning.
Frankly, with my previous experience of stay in Colombo I was not expecting such a nice, clean and spacious room with air conditioner at a low price that I paid. It was a bit far from fort, but was walkable distance from all the shopping places that we wanted to visit. Wifi connection was very good even in the room. Did not have breakfast there so can’t comment. They offer pick up and drop off services all over Colombo also. We were very happy with the room and the service.

Clean hostel with good beds. The shared bathrooms inside are quite small but on the other side: there's a bathroom on the rooftop terrace! From the hostel it's very close to walk to the road close to the traintracks, where it's very easy to catch a tuktuk to the fort or the trainstation.
A very well managed, neat and tidy hostel to stay in. Its very pocket friendly.The Location of the hostel is also is ideal, situated near Duplication road and Galle Road (Major Shopping Streets in Colombo) and a super market is adjacent to the hostel to buy daily grocery or departmental items . Me and my friends (a group of 12 people) stayed at the hostel for 10 days and we all had a great time and felt like home.
Although I only stayed here for one night, it was definitely worth it! Stayed at the mixed dorm with a friend, room was very clean although not too spacious. The shared toilet was basic and quite clean as well. Breakfast (bread and eggs) costs about $2.5 USD. The owner was also very helpful in giving directions around the area.
