Stayed here just for a night before heading to the airport, lovely place! Didn't rate negombo very much itself but this is a nice hostel to stay for a night or two to sort yourself out a bit whilst travelling! Staff were always around and were friendly, they put on dinners every night which were cheap and delicious!

My friend stayed the night before us and he had some issues at the airport and with taxis ripping him off the and the staff here were Amazing with him when he was not in a good way! Super nice, went totally out of their way for him! Incredible service!

If you are staying in negombo be sure to stay here

We had planned to only spend one night here, but since our luggage got lost we had to stay close to the airport a little longer. The owner was super friendly and helpful and made several phone calls to the airport for us. He also made sure that new guests were put in different rooms so that we could have the dorm to ourselves. Great man!
The hostel itself is a bit far away from the restaurants and the nice beach area (5 minutes in tuctuc). But that's OK, especially if you are there for just one night as a stop from the airport.

Such a pretty place with very helpful staff and delicious breakfast. The location is a bit excentered but it feels good to rest away from the crowd. Very clean and well organized place.
Very good place to land after a long trip and plan the journey ahead.
