Nice little place, rooms are basic but clean and have everything you need. Staff are very friendly. The kitchen area could do with improving. Great location a few minutes walk to the beach, much nicer than staying in central Colombo.

I arrived at 1, checked out again at 3.30. i understand that different people have different standards when it comes to cleanliness. i wanted to talk to the manager and explain that this is not working for me and that i would gladly give him something for his trouble. then it got unfriendly. paid more than i did in any other sri lankan hostel.

I stayed here when the hostel was completely empty, and decided to shorten my stay. The manager absolutely refused to allow me to shorten it, and insisted I pay for an extra 2 nights that I would not even be staying (even though the place was literally empty so there's zero chance I was taking away the opportunity for other customers to stay). He was rude, unreasonable, and downright greedy. The neighbourhood is also rather unsafe. I had someone threaten me on the beach and shake me down for money. I will say the staff is very kind, it's just a shame the manager is such an unreasonable man. Avoid this place, if you can.
