Location is far away from city center and it's overpriced compared to other places with own room vs sleeping in a dorm
Helpful staff and hostel hangout area

This was the best place I've stayed. The people and the place itself became family. We traveled with some staff members to Hikkaduwa and made friends with other travelers whom we've traveled with even further. I was here for my birthday and the lovely manager made a scavenger leading to a birthday cake at the bakery nearby. In the 7 weeks I'll be here, I've already gone to CCH three times and I'll be back in a few days before leaving. In addition to the lovely people, the rooms are clean, the bathrooms are VERY clean (and there are enough of them), the kitchen is really great for cooking if you're interested, but also the curry place down by the intersection is cheap and good! There is a supermarket in walking distance, the bus is 17 rupees to city hall and CCH has little daily group events so it's really easy to meet the other lovely folks staying there. Ok. That's all! Go there. It's great!

I love this hostel. I stayed here for a week at the start of my trip, then vowed to myself that I would come back for a few days at the end. The staff are the loveliest most helpful people in the world, who I now consider friends. I met so many great people, some of which I went on to travel around Sri Lanka with. I consider of CCH as my second home! I didn't want to leave! When you go please say hi the Zhenya the manager for me!

The location is slightly out of the way but it's easy to get a tuk-tuk from outside so not really a problem. Some drivers have problems finding it though. It's a little pricey compared to other options.
This is a perfect first stop for anyone travelling alone as you will meet loads of people. The place has a fantastic atmosphere. Emma, the manager, was warm, friendly and knowledgeable and is fantastic at organising events to help people meet and become friends.

Very decent hotel with lots of facilities. Toilets are really clean. Bus stop is nearby. Store nearby to buy food. Full equipped kitchen if you want to cook. Value for money. Close to lavinia beach.

It was difficult a little to tell the location to taxi driver. The landmark there is the hospital I think. If you tell the hospital, you can come very close already.
Of course we cannot expect that much because here is hostel. People there were very friendly and I didn't see any problem as a hostel. I really like this place. I enjoyed talking, drinking, playing a game with them and felt there like home.

I thought the price is high for a hostel dorm. If 15$ is charged for the night, then you expect the breakfast would be a little bit richer (not just toasted bread and jam).
Hostel is not in the center, but in a pretty good enough location (you need bus / tuktuk though). Many restaurants, fruit stalls, snack places, shopping center in a 3 minute walk. Staff is helpful and nice. Bathrooms were ok, they have toilet papers and liquid soap. WiFi is fast and working without any problems. Lockers are huge and has charger inside, I loved it!
