Really great hostel! More like a hotel with dorms, very modern and in a really nice location. Got friendly with the all the staff, they are super super friendly and will help guide and assist you with whatever it is that you wish to do, couldn’t recommend the place more. Very nice to meet other guests from all over the world also! They have water you can purchase water there or if you have your own bottle there is free filtered water. It was clean also, showers, toilets all good 😊

Home from Home
Excellent. Friendly, helpful, professional staff. Clean. Modern decor. Air conditioning throughout. Large police presence at the moment on street due to proximity of the presidents home, but protests are extremely peaceful (despite the media reporting otherwise - do not trust that!). This is probably the safest time to ever visit Colombo! I highly recommend staying here.

Highly Recommended
Definitely book here. I have stayed in most hotels around Colombo now and I find this hostel to be the biggest surprise that I wish I had found long ago! Beautiful, modern decor. Simple rooms with nice linen, comfy beds and air conditioning. Bathrooms are regularly cleaned. The entire hostel is very clean and comfortable. The staff are welcoming, friendly and professional. I enjoyed my stay and will return again. Highly recommended. Value for money is 100/10
