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.
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.
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.
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!
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).
Very nice place! Clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff. Nice atmosphere
This place is an absolute gem! Staff are amazingly friendly and knowledgable!!!
The hostel was always clean and had a great atmosphere. Its set out really well with cool common areas for socialising. The staff were also very helpful and friendly and we felt very safe here. Overall CCH is a very well run hostel.
The enthusiastic receptionist and the outdoor kitchen area
No hot water No air con Uncomfortable beds Not a great location for a short stay
Quiet place and good chilling out space.
Quite far from the city center, but you can get a bus from the bus station close by.
One of the best hostels I stayed at. Though, it wasn't that easy to find as it is a few kilometers away from the center. However, great location, all you need is nearby.
Beach is not nearby. One needs to take a bus or an auto rickshaw.
Cch is awesome! I stay a couple of days as my based camp in Colombo heading to different scenic spots around Sri Lanka. Cch is 20 mins. Close to train station which very comfortable and Daiva will give you advise/tips things to do in Sri Lanka.
The hotel is very well equipped, with a shared kitchen, a swimming pool, laundry service, bike renting...
The hotel is located 20 minutes by bus from the center of Colombo but accessible by Tuk Tuk or public bus
i liked mostly everything out there.. Good place for young traveler or even in a group of friends. Best place for backpackers to explore colombo. i recommend it strongly.
Location and wi-fi
Bit hard to locate due no proper signage.
Simply everything and everyone. Amazing staff and pack packers :) Best place to socialize with people from around he world. Enjoyed the activities organized by the staff especially the quiz night. Ideal location and easy access to supermarket, restaurants and beach. Great value for money. Defiantly will book my next stay in Colombo there.
Nothing to complain about.
Great Atmosphere, friendly people and owners! Reasonable rates for extremely clean and well-maintained surroundings!
