The hostel is pretty nice and offers everything a backpacker needs. The highlight is Kebab the rabbit. She lives on the rooftop and is just hopping around all the guest. She is very gentle ane everyone loves her. I liked the chilled atmosphere.

Not very easy to find ”
The hostel is almost impossible to find and taxi drivers don't know where it is. Other guests staying had the same problem. The hostel itself is satisfactory, but nothing positive stood out.

Friendly stagf and a nice kitchen and hang out area make CCH a great place to start the Sri Lankan adventure.
It was very comfortable. Loads of activities also meant that one met a lot of other travelers. The staff was helpful and very informative which was helpful for someone coming for the first time. Fast WiFi and availability of basics made for a very pleasant stay.

Safe, Clean & Fun!”
Safety (door was locked), amazing staff, clean room & nice common areas
I liked it, staying at Colombo City Hostel was definitely the highlight of my trip to Colombo. I met some amazing people who I ended up hanging out with and loved the time spent at the hostel - tbh there's not that much to see in Colombo but if you've got two days or are just passing by this hostel is near public transport and has nice quiet surroundings with a few good restaurants nearby. It's clean, you get to sleep under a mosquito net and get your own fan, the front gate is always locked, the staff is lovely and common areas perfect for meeting fellow travellers. Would recommend it 100%!
