The YMCA has been established in 1882 June 24 as stated on the building, may be much improved with some renovations. Very central location in the heart of Colombo Fort. Offers accommodation with attached and shared facilities. All rooms located on second floor which have to be reached on ancient wooden staircase with no elevator available.

Very decent place to dine. Not a luxury place but they serve very good , tasty , hygienic food at reasonable price. Mostly the staff of private institutions around the place will visit this place for lunch/tea.

Reasonable. Somewhat crowded on weekday lunches. Relatively good selection and variety. Cleanliness can improve. Recommended if you're looking for a srilankan home made type meal.

This old institution is worth a visit to see how grotty and basic travelers used to accept to stay. Not recommended to actually sleep there, in my view. But the restaurant downstairs, as messy and basic as it still is might be worth a look at. Prices are high considering what you get. Only plus we see is the location... More

Ok for a meal, in the Middle of the Town. They have many more other activities such as Indoor Sports etc, but I am afraid they are mostly used by Locals and Members (Like a Club). Pls call them for more details.

It is a Friendly organization.Friendly organization. The Institute a number of institutions that meet various social services. That is a fair price for the food they are important hotel service, a fair amount of tourists who stop or safe as facilities providing service.
