The best thing about this place is the host. Nice sweet, friendly people! It is located in the city center and easily accessible by bus and local transport. It is a little old fashioned and laid back, which is nice. It was more like staying in someone's home!

All you'd expect from a city centre hostel! Rooms and bathroom were basic but clean.

The host was excellent and was there to assist with everything we needed. He even walked us to the bus stop in the morning to make sure we got the right bus to Bentota!

Quite a nice little hostel, with lounges to relax on in the lobby and a small pool for a quick dip. Maybe a little overpriced, though, for what it is. The hosts were very friendly and helpful, arranging transport to the airport for us.

Hotel is located in city center. Walking distance from nationale museum, park and Town Hall. Room quite big and comfortable. Always warm water. Very friendly and helpful staff and very willing to help any time.

We took an overnight bus from northern Sri Lanka expecting to arrive in Colombo around 8am - 10am. Instead, our bus arrived in record time - 4am. We had the following night booked at a nice hotel, expecting them to either let us check-in early or allow us to store our luggage for a few hours while we grabbed breakfast and our room was prepared. We went to our hotel at 4am to find that the early check-in fee at this time was way above budget. We searched TripAdvisor and found Lanka Hostels located a block away. We rang the door bell at 5am and was happily greeted by one of the owners who provided us with a clean, comfortable bed in an Air Conditioned room at a great value. He literally saved the night for us. They even let us check out a little late so we could get extra sleep and by the time we got back to our hotel we were able to get into our room. Highly recommend this place for their friendliness, great location, and great amenities.

Room Tip: Dorm rooms were good. Didn't get to see the private room.
