Cheapest to stay for a night before going home from Colombo”
Cheap backpackers place to stay, very clean bathroom and toliets and comes with aircon in the rooms. Colombo International airport is about 35 mins ride away. Lots of food area and shops outside the hotel.

Incredible staff, clean and comfortable dorm room - more like a boutique hotel!”
First of all I must mention how incredibly helpful and welcoming the staff at Chapelton House are. The manager, Hermon, arranged tuk tuk driver for my travels for a reasonable price in Colombo after I got charged double the local price by a tuk tuk that I found on the street. He didn't want me to get scammed again and I'm so happy with his help. Melon, another staff at Chapelton House, is a cheerful young man who always has a smile on his face, who is always willing to help and a pleasant person to talk with. The dorm room was definitely the best one I've ever stayed in (given I've traveled to many countries). It's so clean and the private closet has everything I need: a towel, a bottle of water, pillow, etc. Location is amazing as it's a 7 minute walk from the beach and restaurants around. The interior of this house is just lovely and my experience there gave me a very good first impression of Sri Lanka. Keep it up!

Loved this place in Colombo”
I stayed here at two different times in April 2016 and think it's the best place to stay in Colombo. The room was clean, bedsheets and towels were clean and the bathroom was also super clean. Staff was welcoming and very nice and professional. It's also a safe area and quiet even though it's just a one minute walking time to eating places and shops in the Wellawatte area of Colombo. Excellent value for the money. Feels like a luxury room with the nice warm shower and clean sheets to sleep in. The decor is outstanding as well with neat lines and so pleasing to the eye. The air conditioning works well. This will be my pace to stay in Colombo when I return if they have a room available.

Rude Manager. ”
Asst. Manager, Cook, and Gate keeper
The mosque next door wakes you up with a loud prayer early in the morning. I don't know how this guest house was approved to do business in this location. Other strange disturbing noises in the nights just outside the bedroom on the ground floor. When this matter was taken up, he said ' I am tired, I have to go and sleep'. has to be replaced with a sensible manager who will take care of their guests. A sleepy manager is not what they need. We will not step into this place again, nor will we send any referals.
