Flipflop Hostel, Negombo
Clean, comfy!
Affordable stay in the expensive Fort area! Loved that all of the beds were stand-alone (not bunk) so that everyone had plenty of their own space. Only 4 beds to a room so not crowded at all. Each bed has a fan over it, as the rooms don't have aircon. And mosquito nets are always my favorite amenity!!

Good airport hostel
Great location for the airport (8km, 500Rs in a Tuk-Tuk). City is a bit of a walk but not impossible. The breakfast was great but they don’t do other meals as advertised. Nayomi’s nearby is delicious and cheap for dinner. Stayed in a twin room which was comfy and clean. Staff were nice, especially the guy that made breakfast. Would stay again.

Good value for money
I spent 1 night in private room before heading to north. Room was clean, breakfast nice and staff very helpfull. Due to my short visit I can't say a lot about location but at least cleanliness and staff were both excellent.
