    One minute walking distance to the beach, next to the city. There are few restaurants at the beach where you can chill at sunbeds.

    This place is ideal for lone travelers, young ones on long duration & budget travels.We were uncomfortable to stay in bunkers sharing with strangers. Managed to get a private room (paid extra for the room + air conditioning) Overall was manageable as we were only at hotel to shower and rest.

    Staff, facilities, people
    This is a really lovely place stay whether you are back backing or traveling as a couple for a few days. They have dorms as well as private rooms. There is a small pool and a garden. There are all sorts of people always hang out in the garden so you will find yourself a company quite quickly. You can also use a kitchen, which is nice. The beach is average. The wifi was on and off. Rooms are goods but require some renovation soon.

    Very helpful staff, always went out of their way to accommodate my requests for information or needs. I took a local bus out from the train station... just make sure the conductor person is going to tell you when to get off.

    The garden, the kitchen facilities, the staff
    We stayed at The Lavinia Beach Hostel for four days in September 2015. The hostel had a lovely homely feel to it and the staff were most welcoming. We were allowed to use the kitchen and keep our food and drinks in the fridge. Our room was nice and clean. We enjoyed sitting on the porch and looking out to the garden; it was very relaxing. The beach was only 2 mins walk and the main road could be reached in 5 mins where you can find supermarkets etc. All in all it was a lovely stay; we would recommend. Thanks to the Lavinia Beach Hostel staff :)

    location, other backpackers
    Nice owners but they seam tired and stressed, curfew is 11pm and they get very bossy about going to bed and switching off the wifi,you are also not allowed to sit outside after this time not for the very independent traveler! Cramped dorm rooms if sharing, good ensuite in single occupancy room. On the upside it is a stones throw to the beach

    Sehr gut”
    Es gibt nicht allzuviel zu sagen. Das Personal war nett und hilfsbereit, die Zimmer waren sauber und der Garten sehr sehr schön, sogar mit einem kleinen Pool. Der Strand is 2 Gehminuten dieser ist allerdings nicht sehr schön (ist er wohl allerdings in Colombo generell nicht). Das Bad könnte gepflegter sein da trifft man aber in Sri Lanka auf viel schlimmeres. Fazit würde ich wieder buchen, das Preisleistungsverhältnis stimmt absolut.
