Nice and basic
Nice, basic hostel near the airport. Location: convenient, close to the airport, farther from the city center and beach area, but the hostel is very close to the main road where you can get tuk-tuk or take the bus, Pickme (Sri Lanka version of Uber) works well in here. Breakfast: toast with jam and butter, two pieces of fruit, egg and tea Room: Ceiling fan (No AC), clean white bedding Service: Superb! Both the service counter and housekeeping staff are hardworking, kind, helpful people, they really go the extra mile to make you feel welcome Toiletries: they only provide toilet paper Nice common areas to chill as well.

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!!

Nice staff, clean and quiet
Stayed for two nights after arriving in Sri Lanka. Cool house, really nice staff, basic but clean facilities and a nice breakfast. There weren’t many other guests. Good stay for the price.

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.
