Arranged airport pick~up but the driver was holding a different name so couldn't find him initially. Bed was comfortable but being situated next to the door, I was frequently woken up by people opening and shutting the creaky door. The bathroom was a bit dirty and all toilets were wet as they doubled as shower stalls. Hotel staff were super friendly and very helpful while the location was the best for catching an early train from Colombo Fort train station.

Excellent stay. But note that there is noise from downstairs where a bar is located. So it might not be good for light sleepers.

Cool little spot with everything you need
Great for a quick stopover in Colombo. Thought it would be closer to the train station than it was but short rickshaw ride away. Capsules were comfortable, breakfast was okay, good info/service available from staff.

Clean, comfortable, capsule hotel stay.
Brief stay - really just to be close to Fort railway station for an early-morning train - but impressive capsule hostel at this price point, with clean and proper bedding. Beds are robustly built, so that others moving in their capsules don't creak too much, and there is plenty of space within the pod. Would happily stay again. Helpful staff host.

I started and ended my trip here.
great place to start and end your trip in Sri Lanka.. it is 5 min walk to Fort station where I got a train to Hikka. I took a tuktuk from airpirt to this hostel for 1600 rupees. there is an ATM at bottom of the road. There is a roller blind to give you complere privacy in your capsule. Clean towel was provided WIFI is good. Hot water Roof terrace for smokers. Only slightly negative thing is that the USB outlet in the capsule barely charged my phone. I had to use regular charger. Breakfast sandwiches were not to my taste.
