I believe CityRest-Fort is the first choice for a growing number of solo or friends visitors as they arrive to Sri Lanka. It actually works well for that purpose. The location is very good, the service nice and the rooms and baths are relatively clean. I would not give more than a 4 mark if it was in Europe, but considering the options you have in Colombo, I would say it is an excellent option for a b&b/hostel.
