Excellent
This guest house is an arpartment with seaview from windows of both rooms. Sea is accessible within 2 minutes walk. The lady in the house, Prima, can cook for me good srilanka food both lunch and dinner. She take care of me like a member of her family that really touch my heart. I will definitely come back and stay in this hostel. I highly recommend this hostel for you.

Awesome experience
I've been in Colombo for 3 weeks, stayed in 6 different hostels. This one is my favorite so far. It is situated in a quiet and beautiful area, in a residental building. You'll feel like you're staying at someone's home, not in a hostel. You'll have all kitchen amenities, a fridge, hot shower, and nice breakfast. The ocean view from the room is fantastic. Constant refreshing breeze included. Prema, the hostel manager, is a very welcoming and kind person. Water bottles are available on site, at store prices.

My Rave about Mama!
What I like most about this hostel is that it is actually inside an apartment. There's 3 rooms with a few bunk beds in each place, a living room, access to a fridge, an option to have breakfast, a fridge to use, gorgeous view of the sea from a balcony in one bedroom, and "mama", the sweet woman taking care of the hostel. She is spunky and sweet and refers to the guests as darling- she works so hard here to keep things afloat and, as mentioned in a previous review, loves a good hug. So thankful for my time here and the family feel she gives Sea View Hostel and the tasty breakfast she makes! Thanks so much, Mama Prema!

Not what we expected
This place had good ratings, but we were disappointed. First, while it says twin room on Agoda there are 4 beds per room, two double beds! We were lucky that one of the rooms was empty so that my partner and I had a private room. However, the room was very dirty, there were hairs all over the floor. Also, there were cockroaches and the window was not closable. I can't recommend this place.

No female dorm available
stuff, sea view, free breakfast
when the hostel is fully booked you won't find much space to be. There is no female dorm available even they offer it at agoda.com. They said this is a fault from agoda.com to offer a female dorm. The sea view is awesome. You can walk along the beach to the Dehiwala Railway Station.

out of the way, simple and overpriced.
it's isolated, and not really near anything useful. the frequent trains rumble by every 30 minutes right by the window. I got bit an excessive number of times by bugs in the bed. The owner would frequently just enter our unlockable room while we were sleeping. suffice to say the sleep was one of the worst I've had in my extensive travelling. would never recommend.

Great!
Value, comfort, friendliness
We stayed at Seaview for a total of 9 nights and we enjoyed the place very much. It's very close to the train station, we went between Dehiwala and Fort often, as well as to Bambalapitiya to apply and wait for our Indian visas. As backpackers, Seaview was the cheapest option in Colombo area and very comfortable. Very clean, and the lady who runs the place is so so so friendly and warm! She is lovely. There is a simple toast and boiled egg breakfast included and just down the street a cheap place called New Star has good local eats. Highly recommend Seaview as a place to stay and meet other travelers!

Not what I expected
Staff, seaview
Colombo is a difficult place to get a good, cheap place. Unfortunately other than the charming lady Reena running the Sea View Hostel it was neither of these. It should be noted that this is not in Wellewatte as listed but in Dehiwala the next district out of Colombo. It is very close to a beautiful section of the beach but that is it's only saving grace. This is nothing more than a small residential apartment with 2 rooms arranged as 4 bed dorms & one twin room. Thankfully when i was there I was the only guest so despite all it's drawbacks I was lucky and Reena couldn't have been more helpful or Rajid who acts as the caretaker for the block the apartment is in. Unfortunately I couldn't recommend on price, location or facilities.
