“Best Budget place to stay in Columbo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

If you need to stay in Columbo this place is your best option. Located right on Galle Road and a few blocks from the Indian Visa processing building you couldn’t ask to be in a better place. There are 4 person dorm rooms with very clean and efficient bathrooms down the hall and private ensuite rooms available. The rooms face the back so are quiet. All rooms have a/c and Wi-Fi. This place just opened a few months ago so the kitchen area is not yet complete, but when done will be a great place to self cater. There is a very nice communal area with a flat screen TV for relaxing in the evening. There is not a restaurant on site, but Barefoot is across the street and there are plenty of short eats and curry places near by. If you are arriving from the airport they can arrange a taxi service, which was very nice. All the staff is helpful and go out of their way to make sure you are happy. We stayed here at the beginning and end of our 1-month stay in Sri Lanka. If you need to lighten your load, they will also store your bags at no extra cost. There is an additional charge for a top sheet. Lockers in the room are free and a good size.

The hotel is a 30-40 minute walk from Galle Face Hotel, but quite far from the train station. The surroundings at first seem chaotic and uniteresting, but there are a coulle of gems nearby-barefoot store and cafe and the excellent green cabin restaurant. The hotel itself has its upsides - it's very clean, has hot water, the a/c works and tye rooms are quite smart. Don't count on a view though (any view really, there is a building right outside of the window) and it is quite expensive. A bit too expensive for its lack of character. Good for one night, maybe two, not more.

A brand new budget hotel in the heart of Colombo's Galle road. The hotel is brand new, and some common areas were built as we stayed. Rooms were all finished though and nice and clean. New spotless cozy bedsheets with good blankets.

Stayed also one night in dorms which were basic but fine. NB! Blanket is not included in dorms, but can rent for small extra sum. Dorm bathrooms were shared, but very clean and modern, and cleaner was ready at all times to keep them tidy.

The free WIFI was very slow at times.

Very helpful staff.
