The staff at the Sea View Hostel were really lovely, the lady working/staying there was very helpful. After 1 day i came to the conclusion that colombo is not that exciting, The staff at the hostel recommended that i go to Kandy instead, as it was my first time in Sri Lanka i was going on a wing and a...

Although, it's maintained clean, but not truly maintained, as the bathroom fittings are mostly broken, or not working fine. Just barely enough to make you through. The attendant old lady knows some 10 words in English, and manages just with that... So difficult to communicate anything with her. Although, she's friendly and polite. The place itself is pretty far from... More

I have stayed at this hostel for 5 days now. The first 3 days was really good, clean, welcoming and polite. The last 2 days became really awkward and uncomfterball when a new lady had turned up who was very rude. I was feeling ill and needed just to rest for 1 week and was trying over and over to... More

The hostel is very very far from the central city, so u might need a taxi or 3 hours bus and another half an hour to find the hostel. When I arrived at the hostel, people nearby don't even know behind the building their is a hostel. The lady looks very warm hearted when she asked me for money and... More

I've given this four stars simply to boost is rating a bit, this is a nice quiet hostel (apart from the trains), but it's clean and the lady who runs it is very friendly and helpful. On the down side, there's a 10pm curfew, and the gate at the bottom Heya locked at ten thirty, and with colombo being held... More

10 bucks is the most ive payed for a dorm throughout my trip. Its only a small appartment turned into a dorm place. hardly any space to hang out and the woman working there is always on your tail. Friendly yes, but gets annoying after trying to understand what shes on about. Curfew is on at 10 pm which sucks.... More

The hostel is clean and the staff is friendly, but be careful when they are offering you a car because it's way too expensive. They first asked us for 16000 rubies to go from Dehiwala to Negombo and in the end we could get there for 2000 rubies. There was no a/c and only two fans so it was really... More

The hostel is clean, and the lady that runs the house is friendly and helps where possible (although her English isn't fantastic)- but she has lots of info regarding buses and trains out of Colombo to the rest of the country. The house is located opposite the beach, but the train line runs between the two, so if up your... More
