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!
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.
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.
Good common facilities
Location,- a bit far from the city center
Easy-going, relaxing atmosphere, welcoming staff. Very clean place.
Facilities a bit out of date. Location a bit far from the fort.
The hostel is an awesome place in busy colombia with a great and chilled atmosphere and its easy to make friends. There is always something going on such as movie nights or taking you out for a drink! The stuff is really helpful with informations and trys best to make your stay comfortable. Shops and little restaurants are just around the corner.
Location - no one knows where it is Expensive for no AC
- Cleanliness - Kitchen - Hostel culture including events - Hospitality
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.
