Pleasant accommodation for price
Free wifi, breakfast and comfortable bed with Mossi net
The property was located in a quiet side street 30 metres from the main road. There were maybe 10 rooms max in the building and I think mine was one of the delux ones, although my use of the word delux I would reserve for something with a better finish. Having said that, I was happy with the room at the price I paid. The owner/manager was a pleasant chap and went out of his way to supply me with my morning fill of tasty fruits for breakfast (quantity not lacking). The lady who served and prepared the meals was very nice and spoke reasonable English. The rooms were regularly cleaned and benefitted from both a ceiling fan and air conditioning.l Just outside my room on the public veranda there was a seating area with 2 little coffee tables and a fish tank with too many fish in for a tank of that size. But that's just my opinion, as I am a vegan and I don't like to see animals who are kept out of their natural habitat or confined in cages or tanks at all. I hope the proprietor leaves this personal opinion in the review. Most people would not mind the fish tank I am sure. There are of course many more up market properties than Shanith but for the money, relative comfort, helpful and pleasant staff, reasonable location ( five minute walk from tiny train station ; 2 mins from beach; motorbike hire close by ; short tuc tuc ride from Negombo fish market ; plenty of local restaurants) I would say this guest house was one for consideration when choosing where to stay in Negombo. Thanks, Mick from UK.

Horible, horible, horible...
Just staff one girl - she welcome me
The first impression when I welcomed a lady was friendly - did not finish until the manager come... It was an unpleasant, unhelpful and arrogant guy who has had a hook ... I do not recommend even sleep there for free ... disaster and disgrace for people living in Necombo ... because I met there much more sincere and caring people ...Never again!!!
