We stayed at Sha residence for 3 nights before we took off on our motorbike trip. Our room was clean and spacious and had everything expected from a hostel. The garden is beautiful and the location is great! Staff were friendly and always willing to help with travel info.

We slept there on or first two nights in Sri Lanka while we were picking up and getting used to the bike we rented for the following month. If you are interested in the bike rental look for our review for “Sha Tours Sri Lanka”. The guesthouse is nice, relaxed and green. Nice garden with animals going around. The (non-ac)... More

Lovely home stay, very accomadting lady that ran the place. The price was very reasonable and nothing was a chore. Stay here as a quick stop if arriving late at the airport. They were able to pick us up from colombo international and dropped us off in the city of be Negombo in the day

We decided last minute to stay in Negombo to get a bit of beach time before we flew home. We tried a couple of places on Trip Advisor, but were all fully booked. We looked in the Lonely Planet and the review was pleasant for Sha Residence. I called and they said they had rooms. I then told them that... More

We used the Sha residence as our first stop on landing in Sri Lanka as we were hiring a motorcycle from them for the rest our trip. The guest house was conveniently located near to the central 'strip' of Negumbo but a little outside for some quiet. The garden is picturesque with animals roaming around and the rooms are decent...

Had a great trip in Sri Lanka by motorbike to Sigirya, Arugam Bay and up he hills to Tea Country. The roads away from the main city's and towns up in the hills are some of the best I've have ever been on. Came close to kissing the tarmac on the some of the endless bends on the mountains roads....

It has been our first stop in Sri Lanka. Clean and nice rooms with AC, close to the hotel area and the beach of Negombo. Call the day before you arrive to check the taxi transportation. 5 percent reduction for tripadviser review !

This has been the bad place of our trip in Sri Lanka (I guess there has to be one....) although we paid here more or less the same rate as in other locations and cities.

I thought it was something different and really looked forward to staying here. But one more time I was wrong! The room they gave us was on the ground floor on the right. It was damp as hell and smelled really bad. We turned on fan and AC (worked as fan not AC) and left the room for a few... More
