Very helpful and friendly staff. The hostel mum really was like a mum, helping a sick boy and helping me when I got a blister. The guy took me to get dinner and told me about the country. The location is near the beach.

Great place in a quiet location, but very close to the railway station and the busy main road into Colombo and further South, so you can easily flag down a bus when you decide to continue your journey. The staff is absolutely amazing, very friendly, warm and welcoming, and always up for a chat and a laugh. If you need some motherly warmth, this is the place to go. The rooms are very clean, and the beds comfortable and cozy. Chances are you want to stay longer than intended.
