            Good budget option - but not the Mazz Homestay”

            We stayed one night after arriving in Sri Lanka. Found Mazz Homestay easy enough but was not the acommodation as pictured in Agoda. Was a different homestay (Randi Homestay) who is the uncle of the owner. Due to the virus activity around the world the host thought it would be better as a family we stay there as other travellers could have put us at risk. Great precautions and great family, very friendly and love how they thought of our welfare. Comfortable homestay at his uncles. Highly recommended and will stay again. Thanks Mazz, Randi and family.

            service with a smile, easy to find

            I arrived late at the airport so I wanted an hotel quite near to spend the night and decided to go to Mazz Homestay. Having telling them that I was arriving late, they were waiting for me and welcomed me with a smile. It's not a 3 star hotel, but the comfort is what I expected and I had a good sleep!

            Best place to use as Exit/Entry point to country”

            Perfect location near airport and bus station. Host provides helpful advice and speaks good English. Wifi, comfortable beds. Best online prices.

            This place is ideal for anyone who needs a place to stay before or after the airport, as it is several minutes away by taxi. It is also right next to the bus station, so after a good night's rest you can be on your way to any location in the country. The host speaks very good English, and makes every effort to make your stay comfortable, as well as providing tips on how to travel and enjoy your stay in the country. Private or shared rooms are available at competitive prices; the cheapest prices in the Colombo area. The rooms are basic and comfortable, with Wifi access. To get here, it is best to take Tuk-tuk from the airport, or buses if they are available. Taxis direct from the airport are expensive for this short journey, but are a viable alternative. Don't let them charge you more than 1500 rupees.

            Location, ?,?

            The place has a good location and I booked at my beginn and end at Sri Lanca. I could store my big bagpack there. The breakfast was poor (coffeepowder,toast -no toaster, mrgarine and jam), in the kitchen broken doors, moskitos all over (no cover at windows in most rooms), at my second stay not even jam (he was lazy for shopping). He offered an airport transfer for 1.000, I asked a tuk tuk driver and got a ride for only 500!!!

            all that we've read about the owner were true! the mazz homestay gives a warmth, homey feeling that any stranger in the country needs to feel safe and comfortable.

            the place is managed by rome and his wife, they were great people. very warm, friendly and tries to help you in everything you need. we were certainly new in the country and they have given us good tips and made our short stay really great. the rooms were basic but enough. the place is also near the supermarket where we bought the souvenirs and a walking distance from the restaurant where we've had good dinner.

            close to bus station, pleasant, Sri Lanka interesting places advisory

            I liked it there, received a lot of useful advices regarding my trip and places worth seeing. Also, it was very close to bus station, it is located in Negambo what wasn't mentioned in the address when I booked it. Also, don't inform staff in advance in case you plan to come back, they will increase the bed price for that period as it did in my case (increase to 1000 rupeesjust for the bed). Do only online reservation, it will cost you less.

            Nesr the airport!”

            Location, price, vibe

            The main reason why I booked this was due to its proximity in flying out of Sri Lanka. It was easy to the airport and the staff can help in arranging a service. Cheap price and has a backpacker feel into it. Great way to meet people.

            Staff is good

            During the stay in Sri Lanka, I pretty much felt that most of the owners of hotels are tend to business oriented to customers. They are nice but they try to make tourists to spend more money. But this hotel, the staff is truely friendly.

            Not easy to find, especially at night, the environment of the house is awful, landlord will give u a small lock to lock your door, it ok if you just need a sleep for a night

            The hotel was chepa, had a good proximity to local travel links and was secure

            A group of 3 of us spent one night following our arrival in Sri Lanka. The host was pleasant when showing us around, the rooms were basic but clean and there was a small kitchen area. The main reason we stayed was the value for money and the location and those things lived up to expectations!

            terminal vicinity, good value, nice owners

            Not close to the main tourist areas, I would recommend it if you are coming from Kandy/north/south and need an easy and affordable stay as last night in Sri Lanka before heading to the next destination

            Ugly place”

            Near the airport

            I visited the hostel for one night before go to airport. It takes 20 min., to get to airport from hostel. First of all it is not an official hostel with reception and service. It is just the guy with his small house. You will never find the place unless someone point you out. I had to slept on the wet bed clothes and wear earplugs (it was raining and the sound was terribly loud). At the end I asked the guy to order a taxi to airport. He took the money (800lkr) and ordered the tuk-tuk (which cost much cheaper then a taxi). Hi just lied to me by saying that there is no taxi at night.
