We stayed at the Marine Tourist guesthouse during our first night in Sri Lanka. It's off the bus towards Lewis Place, a local woman helped us getting out at the right bus stop. It's almost on the beach and it's very clean and nice inside. Would definitely recommend to go here on your first/last night.

Stayed in marine tourist guest house for two nights in August before my flight. Stayed in the dorm rooms here. Great stop off spot. Staff very helpful in showing me where to go to use a swimming pool closely, they even broke into my locker for me (at no cost!) when I lost my lock key! Highly recommend staying here.... More

Stayed in the dorms (both mixed and girls only) which were clean, cheerful and cheap! With WiFi and included A/C for which we were very grateful on our first night in the Sri Lankan heat. Shared bathrooms which were kept clean. Close to the beach, restaurants and walking distance from the centre. The reception was a very nice and breezy... More

I was on a short trip to Sri Lanka, The closest place from the airport was Negombo and the best price was offered by Marina Guest house. The location was close to the beach. The rooms were clean and had a nice open balcony with a sea view for each room. Clean rooms with basic needs. No elevator but plenty... More

Me and my partner stayed in one of the 4 bedded dorms and really enjoyed our stay. Beds were a good size for bunk beds, lockers were big enough for back packs and the room had A/C, which was a life saver!! Brilliant place if you want to be right next to the beach and restaurants and shops very close... More

Negombo really is ideal to acclimatise on arrival, there is an 80's style hotel over the road with a pool where we relaxed in the shade and spent the day. Lovely family, bed was clean and comfortable, inc nets and towels. Bathroom was fine although tiles lethal when wet as is commonplace! Happily recommend.
