      Good location for train & bus.”

      Food city nearby has 2L diet cola.(matters great to me) Deposit refund is set in as a checkout duty.(This is also great. I have ever forgot to ask refund, never paid back to even my bank acnt in US. Mind your checkout in another hostel.) Cheapest is not recommended, no locker is worst. They should upgrade to security capsules with cool air duct.

      This place is just ok. The location is great, right next to the train station and beach. The roof top patio is also nice. But they’re missing lots of simple things: no trash cans in the bathrooms, the kitchen supplies are awful so it’s geryvdifficult to make your own food, and there are no convenient outlets in the rooms.

      The location of this place couldn't have been better! You could get to the beach, the train station, and the main road in less than 5 minutes. The breakfast that came with my room was awesome, as was the fact they served it on the rooftop with a view of the ocean.

      Convenient and walking distance to beach ”

      Best place about this place is they have a rooftop view of the beach! All the guest hangout on the roof. The hostel is walking distance to the mount Lavinia railway station. So if you are taking bus to the fort Colombo railway , you can take the train to the hostel which is very convenient ! The hostel also is very near to the beach. Great value for money !!

      This is the cheapest in the area. It's clean and very comfortable beds. There's a little mold in the roomes but nothing else big. Pros: -great value for money - Comfy beds. -aircon - good laundry service -private beach Cons: - Placemt even though it's in Colombo it took us 40 minutes to come to the attraction we wanted to see. - mold in the rooms. - breakfast was a little too simpel

      The hotel is really clean and the staff are super friendly and helpful. There was aircon and wifi in our room. I was a bit surprised that there was no private bathroom - it was the most expensive hotel we’ve been to in Sri Lanka (our last day, so we wanted to spoil ourselves a bit) and the only one where we had to use a shared bathroom. I’m used to hotels stating openly on agoda that the bathroom is shared, there was no info about shared bathroom in the room description so I assumed it would be private - my bad. It was pretty busy during our stay so definitely better for those who are very social and like meeting new people. There are many common areas, including the rooftop with a tiny swimming pool. Easy access to the train station, beach and shops - approx 1.5 hours away from the international airport if there is no traffic - it’s worth taking a tuk tuk (approx 3,000 rupees, a taxi charges around 4,000-4,500 rupees and might be much slower if there’s traffic).

Confortable, propre, esthétique, piscine, magnifique vue, plage privée, bon petit déjeuné et un staff juste géniale... que demander de plus ? J'ai donc prolongé encore et encore dans cet hostel ahah Je tiens à préciser l'aide de Kasun, j'ai eu quelques soucis avec les agents de sécurité de la garre et ce fut juste adorable la lettre qui leur a adressé, ce qui m'a tiré d'affaire . Sans compter son investissement pour arranger tent que possible chaque situations. Vraiment un chouette hostel je recommande +++
