Nice place to start the journey
This hostel is a really nice place to meet up with other travellers. The host is super friendly and helpful as well. I arrived at 5am from the airport and I could already get my bed about one hour later. She's also really helpful with information about how to get around and how things work in Colombo. I do recommend this place!

Great stay twice here!
I stayed twice in this hostel. Clean rooms and bathrooms and nice breakfast. Especially the staff was incredibly kind. Kumari helped out with everything. She's adorable! Keep up the good work!

Friendly staff, good breakfast
Great choice for the budget traveller, very basic bunk beds with mosquito nets, clean and super friendly, good sri lankan breakfast. I later found this to be the case also for the other hostels from srilankahostels.com which I visited (colombo jumbo hostel and kandy city monkey).

Great place
This hostel has a very nice atmosphere, relaxed and friendly vibe. The hostel manager is a very welcoming and friendly lady, you can always talk to her if you have any concerns. Here you'll feel as a valued guest, not just another "money bag" or something. Amenities are super simple, but in good condition, so no problem. The location is also nice -- near to the city center, so you can walk in any direction and see something. Relatively close to the Fort.

Dirty place, poor location.. disappointing
I arrived at the property at 10pm after requesting a late check out. The owner was sleeping and I had to wake her up so I could check in. The room was dark and dirty. I could literally see bugs crawling on my bed sheets. Bathroom was even worse. Hostel is hard to find (in a small alley with no signs). I left the next day as soon as I woke up. Very disappointed. Can't understand the good ratings. I don't recommend, even on a budget.
