Terrible place . The owner shanali is hostile and psychotic . Please refrain from staying in this dump . It’s fungus infested and delapidated . Broken bathrooms . No attendant ( they all leave after a month or so ). Choose “ lift Colombo “ same road !

We were on a short visit to Colombo with family to attend a wedding. Booked backpacker villa due to location. The owner Shanali messaged us and informed the booking was cancelled due to incorrect price being advertised on Holiday lettings. Shani demanded 3 times more than what we paid to honour the booking. We have tried to find a suitable place to stay nearer to the location of BackPacker villa but failed to do so. It was a the last thing you would anticipate especially when you travel with young kids. There was no consideration what so ever by the Holiday Lettings or the owner Shanali to find an alternative arrangement. I wouldn’t recommend this place anyone.
