“Clean, cool, value for money accommodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We shared a four-bed dorm which was spacious, clean and comfortable. The beds were wide. Lockers were provided free of charge for valuables (as the doors to the rooms do not have locks). Very modern and stylish communal area with kitchen, tables, TV, DVD player etc. Could not recommend enough!

This hotel is located within walking distance to all attractions in Colombo and is relatively clean. Reception staff were really helpful and helped us to organise the next steps of our travel. They also let us check in early after our early flight.

We stayed for 3 nights in early August 2013. The hotel is in a good location for getting around Colombo, our room (ensuite double) was really comfortable plus the manager was really helpful. He gave good advice when we asked about the local area and found us a driver for part of our trip with about 20 minutes notice. The hotel breakfast wasn't amazing value but there are plenty of other options near by if you don't want to eat in. Good budget hotel, would definitely recommend it.

Nice, central and clean place to stay in Colombo. Rooms are spacious and bathrooms are good as well. Central location and close to the beach. Good restaurants close by. We stayed in a double room and this was very good, not sure about the dorms. Breakfast was OK but not very special, could be better.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

My experience wasn't quite as dazzling as many of the other reviews on here - I certainly didn't find the wifi quick or the staff especially friendly. It wasn't all that cheap either, amounting to around 7,000 rupees per night for an air conditioned double room.

But it was clean with a good bathroom and a comfy bed. The location isn't particularly interesting, without many good bars nearby, but the Green Cabin is only a couple of doors down and is a good place to have your first rice and curry if Colombo is your Sri Lankan starting point.
