    Great location, helpful staff and very reasonable pricing make this an excellent choice in Colombo. I spent two nights and am happy to recommend. There are no hotel-type amenities on site but the room was large,, comfortable and clean.

    Best in class in Colombo........”

    Cannot speak highly enough of Drift (and if they are full, their sister hotel called Moss) - I am a frequent visitor to Colombo & have stayed here many times - the rooms are fabulous, bed extremely comfortable, bathroom superb, excellent selection of TV channels, wifi of consistently good speed and as if that wasn't enough, the staff are some of the nicest people you could hope to meet...........if a room is available here , look no further - I can guarantee that within this price range, you won't find a better place..........it has the added bonus of being a 2 minute walk away from Barefoot which is beyond a shadow of a doubt, my favourite place in Colombo..........

    I stayed at Drift for 2 nights on two different dates during my transit through Colombo. The facility has a very nice vibe and the facilities are very clean. Location is superb and their breakfast is VERY decent. The staff is knowledgeable and very helpful. Excellent wifi as well. Overall excellent value for money and would highly recommend to backpackers looking for a hostel in Colombo city.

    The rooms are large and clean. Stayed in a double room with private bathroom (but note that no towels were provided) The hotel has a hip modern atmosphere. The staff are helpful and speak good English. The traffic, though muffled, can be heard from the room I stayed which faces the street.

    Boutique hotel stay”

    boutique room, interior design, location

    Drift exceeded our expectations in all aspects. It is very much more of a boutique hotel, more than a bnb. Having traveled a bit, we think that it has high international standard. The staff was kind enough to check us in at 10am+, which we appreciate highly as we wede tired after early morning travel to Colombo from Kandy 6.15am morning train. We had to wait around 1/2 hour to 1 hour for then to prepare the room, but it's worth the wait as they did a thorough job. We walked in to a spotless clean room, with the burning of aromatic essential oils in an aromatherapy oil burner. Kudos to the front desk and housekeeping staff on duty. Hotel, room deco is superb. They also provide too-notch reading material in the reading area. Wifi is good too. If we have to pick on something, would be the noise from other rooms' door opening and closing as our room is located next to store room and also close to dining area (we were in room no 1). And with the room rate, perhaps free breakfast will be good if it's not too much to ask Location is good to us as Green Cabin restaurant is just across Drift. They have the best lunch buffet at 280rs before tax.

    Very clean rooms and nice location. However after standing on the train and walking down the street to reach the hotel,my legs were tired to walk up the stairsto 2 nd floor. However its nice that there is an elevator for the bags. Very clean and spacious toilets n shower. Loaction is near to Liberty Department stores.

    Sorry for my late reviews. It's absolutely a perfect accommodation experience! Clean room, quiet environment, convenient location and nice people! U could get a map and some useful advice from the front desk, like restaurants, scenic spots, supermarkets, transportation and so on, the guys were so so kind-hearted to help u and solve problems. BTW: Thx so much. I stayed here for two nights before leaving, and it's really a wise choice to stay Drift BnB when u just arrive or before u leave. Of course, luckily, u can meet amazing people from all over the world here, sharing different experiences and feelings.

    Great place to stay in Colombo as it is modern andfun place in an area that is an up and coming smart area. Reception staff give you a map with all the interesting okaces and some good eating places. Worth bearing in mind if you are on a budget is that there is a great cheap Thai cafe 59 yards to the left of Drift. Rooms were nice and although the breakfast was a bit basic, we really enjoyed our stay here.

    Excellent place- super clean- great staff- excellent breakfast”

    Hands down best value for money i have encountered in SL so far. Really clean, and in a great location. the internet is quick and reliable. Breakfast is cheap and delicious. choose between a standard egg/toast type brekky, or a smoothie bowl. Dorm rooms are clean and tidy as are the bathrooms. Millennials need to start understanding co-living etiquitte, it's not acceptable to be up at all hours going through your luggage, with all of the lights on while people are sleeping, this happened twice in a 6 night stay, so just a word of warning to those in dorm rooms, you could be sharing with self absorbed people. Do yourself a favor and book a private room!

    Pros: - Rooms are very thoughtfully and aesthetically designed - location is spot on, right in the city centre with a lot of places to shop or eat around - nice lil touches like a water dispenser to fill your bottles from or a charging station, or a common dining area for people traveling solo or as a small group - staff is friendly and helpful Cons : - a bit expensive, adding breakfast to the cost of stay would have made it as good as a stay in cinnamon on hikkaduwa beach - water pressure is sometimes a problem - there’s lift only for the baggage, that’s a good and a bad thing though

    Good hotel”

    The hotel was excellent but our party of 3 was VERY unhappy with the travel agency they hooked up with operated by someone named Ruan. Our driver Saman, spoke only a smattering of English and he only told us on the first night that Adam's Peak was closed and we couldn't go there. That was meant to be the highlight of our trip. Had we known that prior to departure, we'd have changed our itinerary instead of wasting a day. The hotel (and the driver) had told us to pay the amount at the end of our 7-day trip but instead, the driver asked us for money on the first night, saying he had no cash for petrol or food!! He then showed up an hour late the next day without an explanation. On top of it, he refused to stop for meals along the way and when we insisted, he'd take us to expensive places instead of the local places we wanted to experience. Apparently, we were told later that he gets free meals at these places when he brings in tourists.
