I came to Sri Lanka just for a month, and checked in here, I was amazed! I never thought I'd stay that long. I learnt a lot of things here, what to do, where to go. Etc etc. Clean and extremely friendly environment, you can just chill around, meet people and do a few pub crawls. Totally positive vibes. Have...

Was looking for a cheap place to crash in for two days while we roamed around Colombo and Clock Inn did not disappoint. The room was clean and adequate with a safe locker and other necessities. The bathroom was clean and in good condition. They did not provide toothbrush and paste but you can buy it on request. Overall we...

Stayed here for two nights upon arrival in Sri Lanka. This hotel/hostel is well located with good facilities and clean rooms. The highlight was the staff, in particular the couple running the front desk. So friendly and super helpful, we couldn't have asked for better. They helped us sort out our travel arrangements which were proving tricky as it was...

Decent location and value for money. Considering the star rating of this hotel, you could not do much better. The room was clean and cozy, the staff were helpful, and the breakfast included eggs to order.

As our first stay in a hostel, the clock inn was great. The stay was made sooo much easier by the two very helpful staff on reception, Mimi and Flo! They extended our stay everyday with no problems, directed us round the city to good restaurants and things to do! They couldn't do enough :)

Right on the main road, nicely made up interiors - all on the "clock" theme (not surprising, given its name). Clean rooms. Good, standard breakfast - bread, butter, jam, omelette, The staff is helpful. Overall, a comfortable stay!

I stayed in an air conditioned double room on 2 different occasions in March, 2017. The Clock Inn also has a dormitory. The private rooms are somewhat small, but very comfortable and clean. Plenty of hot water and good air conditioning. The staff is excellent. Florian ("Flo") the manager is very responsible, precise and knowledgeable and the guys that work...
