We don’t normally stay in dorms as a couple but this place was a very pleasant surprise. The place was clean and the bed was super comfy which a sturdy blackout blind for privacy. The staff were nice and so was the breakfast. We would stay here again!

A Good Choice”
It is one of the best choice to young tourists who stay in Colombo. The boss showed his profession and management. The receptionists showed their politeness and friendliness. Especially, the female receptionist is a nice and humorous lady. The only warn for new tourists is -- as you walk around the street outside the hotel, you never give any response to any stranger who actively accosts you.

I loved this place and will certainly book again! So clean and we'll organized, close to attractions and train station. I splurged on a premium cabin and it was amazing. The doubles looked great too. Bed was more comfortable than most hotels I've stayed at. Great little table, light and charging station too. Tasty breakfast as well! Front desk staff were very welcoming and kind. Hotels are expensive in Sri Lankan compared to alot of other countries close by so this is a perfect option and great value for money.

Didnt have the great experience we had in the rest of SL”
The was our last night in SL. We decided to visit Colombo and the reviews made us choose this place. Maybe it is because we had had so many great experiences in other guesthouses (which were also much cheaper), we felt very disappointed. Pros: location is great. The place is very clean and the beds are really comfy. Cons: customer centricity was not there. There was no proactivity from the employees but it seems they followed „the guidebook“. I.e. We asked for more pancakes for bfast and the answer „please go to front desk, you need tonoay for another bfast“ was devastating for us. Really? I.e. 2. As our flight was very early, we were not gonna be able to have bfast the next day, we asked if they would have sth for us (this is becoming usual) and the answer was „no“ (a „let me see what i can do, maybe we can give you fruits“ would be better) I.e. 3. They dont call a tuktuk for us, which we had in ALL of the previous places. If u have a big lugagge its not a nice detail!

good place”
near station, market. good breakfast. capsule is comfortable. bathroom should be improved, it's too small when combine toilet and shower, and toilet need to be cleaned. sink is often clogged. locker need handle, because now it has nothing to hold so it's difficult to open but easy to slip then make noise.

Decent capsule hotel”
Arrived around midnight and the staff in the reception was quite helpful and showed us our bunk bed. Beds were big enough for 2 but no airconditioner access inside the capsule. No lockers for big bags, had a problem looking for the switch of the lights for the shower cubicles (which I eventually found outside the shower/toilet area) Apart from the snoring neighbors on the other bunk beds, fairly decent place to stay at for a night at Colombo before heading to Kandy early in the morning. Location was about less than 10min. walk to Colombo Fort station.

A nice and cozy place”
I stayed in a premium 4-bed room. The bed is big and you can roll down the curtain to have privacy. The locker is a bit small. though. The most impressive part is that it offers somewhat decent breakfast, with fried egg and sausages (too salty for me) beside the toast and a glass of watermelon juice (wow).

Nice Location, Near Money Changers”
I specifically stay here for the money changers :) It is a street with lots of money changers nearby. Exchange rates at the airport is not impressive. As for the room, it was very cozy and clean. They have clean bathrooms but since the window is open without any screen cover, mosquitoes come in and out. Aircon room is cold which is good I have good comforter at night. The breakfast noodles served is not really good. I'd rather you stick to bread, jam, eggs so it's simpler but very2x safe :)

Clean, comfortable, but in a not so lively area. ”
Probably the best bet for those in a budget and want to stay in the historic center, District 1. Super clean place in part because one must take shoes off at the entrance. Air conditioner works well. Ample storage space under capsules. Plug inside capsule will take nearly all plugs without an adapter and includes a USB socket for charging too. The area the hostel is in is not that lively, but all of downtown is rather dead. A Cargills supermarket is nearby, but it's closed on Sundays.
