Nothing exaggerated here. The hotel is located very close to beach (walking distance) to the beach, about a kilometer to the railway station. Spanking clean property. No food service, smoking allowed. No TV, No travel arrangements provided. The place is good for stay only .. just crashing out .Please do not expect anything more.

Regards

Andy

This is a typical backpacker's place with clean beds and a good shower. Neville, the owner is a very chill guy, who knows the no-nonsense appeal of his guest house. He was nice enough to provide me with noodles (on the house!) the night I arrived. The room I was given had two beds, a full-length mirror, a clean bathroom, and a study table. It had a steel door, which gave an '80s dorm room vibe. The room was generally clean although I saw a cockroach.

I only stayed here for one night because it was cheap and I needed a place before my flight back home. Getting to this place was challenging amidst the traffic from Colombo center to Mount Lavinia. I had to pay around LKR700 to get here.

If you only like the basics and like to be near the beach, then stay here. If you have never had any guest house experience, go somewhere else.
