On arrival staff were pretty unhelpful in answering questions about the cheapest room (the 6-dorm) and insisted I had to stay in the 4-dorm, the more expensive option and pretended to not understand my request to stay in the cheaper 6-dorm which had aviliabilty. Dorms were basic, it is on Galle Road and very noisy I was often kept awake... More

Dear Charlotte, Please accept my apologies for the very negative experience that you had at Clock Inn Colombo. After reviewing your reservation details, we found out that our 6 Bed Dorm rooms were genuinely full on the day of your arrival. I assure you that we would never 'pretend'. At Clock Inns, our motive is to offer the lowest prices... More

The pictures make it look cleaner than it is. Breakfast is ok, staff are friendly and polite. Beds are quite hard and being sandwiched between 2 main roads is quite loud and light at night. Each room has air con though with your own remote. Wifi is ok, good at one end of the corridor but not the other.

This hotel, you could tell, is mainly geared to accommodate backpackers from the moment you go in because the check-in is on the second floor so people with suitcases will have a bit of a problem, and the rooms for four or six people in each of them are mostly dorm rooms consisting of two-level bunk beds with a big...

Thank you very much for taking the time to review us. We are very surprised by this extremely negative review. We have been in operation for 3 years and we have never had a single problem with security. Although, the main entrance door to Clock Inn is open for people to walk in and out of the property, the door... More

We used the hotel only as stopover from the airport to the beaches. Location is quite ok, tuk tuk ride from main bus station around 300 Rs. Rooms are comfortable with AC and TV with many international channels, just bit smelly from humidity. Breakfast was basic, but nothing to complain. Staff was nice and helpful.
