Ok for 1 night near the airport”
Near the airport, but not from city center. Staff is really friendly. Breakfast is just bread and fruits. Negombo is hot and there are no air-cons. It's ok for one night coming or going to the airport.

Fine for first or last night in Sri Lanka”
I stayed 1 night after landing at 5 pm at the airport. The hostel was comfortable and the free breakfast was sufficient. Basic facilities but the place was secure and clean.

great stop-by”
our flight came in at 11pm and long queues at the immigration, so a close-by hostel near the airport was just perfect. basic room, clean. share toilets, clean. woke up with no mosquito bites. nice staff. tuk tuk driver was ok but could be better compare to other local drivers we met throughout the trip. it is not bad for its price and location. cold water for showers, but we found out alot of places dont have hot water anyways unless u go for a 5* hotel

Very convenient hostel”
The place is clean and tidy with common space to relax with free tea and coffee. But the must for me is how convenient the place is : When i left the hostel to go surfing south, I could store my extra baggage for 2 week and when I came back to pick up my stuff before my flight, I took a had a shower with fresh towel and could stay till I had to go to the airport (with a tuk tuk they call for me 400rps). Definitely a place for travelers !

Kwan from Malaysia

Near to airport, mosquitoes and noisy”
No doubt it is near to the airport and good for those who arrive late. However it is close to the airport and right next to the main road to Negombo, hence do expect loud noises at night (from cars/trucks/airplanes). I had trouble sleeping because of the loud noises plus the mosquitoes. Breakfast is simple with bread, tea/coffee and bananas. If you do not mind and have time to spare, suggest that you stay nearer to Negombo (especially if you are travelling towards Dambulla or to the north the next day).
