About Hitchhike Backpackers

As a family with a wealth of travelling experience we identified the need for a genuine backpackers hostel in Colombo, one that fulfils the main things we wanted when we travelled, a place that was clean, comfortable, safe and not to forget, good value for money!

There are a variety of dorms and privates rooms, shared bathroom facilities, kitchen facilities and lounge area for you to chill and relax. Bed linen is provided.

A member of staff is available 24 hours. We have numerous resources, hints and tips for you to enjoy all the beauties of Sri Lanka. Feel free to ask for any help. Free WiFi and computer to use in our e-zone.

Dorms and rooms have lockers which you can secure using your own padlocks. There is no bar so bring your own! Feel free to have some beers (or arrack) in the lounge or even the roof top!

Make sure you look out for Pappa Fernando, he's looks like an orang-utan and is the boss of the family. Catch him for a whiskey!
