Manager's Madam Is so friendly & cute. Also, hers cooking is very very good tasty! Very kindness & heartful. She keeping crean room. I don't forget her. Thank you your smile.
Located in the suburb about 7 km away from the main city, this is my favorite place in Sri Lanka, also my last stop after one-month traveling in this country. Compared with other guesthouses, be it in Colombo or other cities, it's one of the best accommodations I've stayed. The amiable Aunt works there and makes lovely breakfast every day. You feels like you are at home, with clean environment and sweet people. From the terrace at the top, especially in the early morning or late evening, you can enjoy the brisk breeze from the ocean, as well as the beautiful view. I enjoyed the tranquility here. And the price worth it for a budget traveler like me. I already missed everything here!!!!!!
The lady who runs this place is lovely, it's a stones throw from the beach and out of the city so much less hectic. Free breakfast, cheap don't if you want it but I recommend eating at the vegetarian place on the corner of the main street and the next street along from the hostel... It's amazing and really cheap. If you like hanging out with locals, this is a great part of the city to base yourself, plus 2 of the rooms have lovely sea views.
WiFi didn't work and the hostel is in a weird apartment building, but that's not really anything to complain about.
Shared bathroom between 10people. Located in a poor area definitely would not recommend
The place is clean and comfortable. The ambience is relaxing, friendly. I really enjoyed the beach nearby.
Everything!! Friendly and helpful stuff , Free breakfast, Beautiful sea view !! Would come back for sure!!
The view is nice.
The location is perfect, just 10m from the ocean, few meters from the bars. Its an apartman, you can go to the roof for smoke a cigarette, chillin and watch the sunset. The staff are very kind and helpful, they are so nice people. Internet connection is very good.
atmosphere the lady is very helpful cheap enough clean and comfort is a bit far from the city..
wifi often slow is a bit far from the main city..
Kind, helpful, friendly staff Location next to beach 1km from Dehiwila Station
Internet (like everywhere) struggles
Not too big and noisy, very clean place, helpful personnel.
Chandra was very friendly and welcoming. Clean room, a little bit crowded. but manageable. Hot water for shower.Nice view of the beach.
a bit in the interior and difficult to locate.
Lady host was Very friendly. View from the balcony.
It is not a hostel but normal flat where old lady always take an eye on you. Doors to the room without a lock (was broken). Room haven't been cleaned after last guests and was very small.
- Beautiful Beach next to the place - very friendly lady that owns the place and makes nice breakfast
Excellent staff, especially the lady who runs this hostel is very friendly, and helpful! The room, shower room are clean. Good location in Colombo. Close to bus stop, supermarket,etc.. I definitely recommend this hostel!
If someone needs AC, there isn't AC in a room. Wifi often run out.
Most I liked Firesa, the friendly lady who runs the hostel. Felt very much at home with her. Will miss her . Wi-Fi was great, good connection. Good bus connection to city. Recommendable for relaxed stay. If you want Galle Road nightlife, take a hostel closer to city. For some days on the beach, take this one. Just walk to left on the beach,you reach Mount Lavinia Beach.
The staff are very helpful and nice. The lady prepares breakfast for me any time I wanted! They also hooked me up with other very good hostels in other parts of Sri Lanka. The location is great with the ocean view and a 15 min ride about 4 dollars from the city. I will sure stay there again
Very nice staff
Micaela the lady wich work very helpful.
Too noisy...because near the railway station.
