  • I arrived in Colombo but my bags did not. Arrived at CityRest and informed the staff that the baggage courrier service would likely be calling or dropping my bag. After 1 day of no contact from service, I became increasingly worried. The staff at CityRest spent the ensuing 2 days reaching out to the courrier service and airline to assure my bag was on the way. I cannot express enough my heartfelt gratitude to the CityRest staff for sorting out an otherwise very frustrating experience for me.

  • It's brand new (the way you even feel the smell of plastering :), so very clean and they obviously have a focus on security. The rooms themselves look like a prison cell a bit :D with not much space inside, but have quite comfortable beds and solid safe-boxes/doors. Most important - functioning air-conditioner. Nice shower-rooms, area for breakfasts. Very recommended for stay in Colombo. TapHouse bar right next to it is a plus :)

  • Brilliant staff, the manager cleared up a billing issue for us. We was welcomed with drinks and I wish the owners every success with this new business.

  • They had just opened the hostel, so there was still some final touches to do, but really good location, clean rooms, nice rooftop terrance! Would recommend to stay if you are continuing journey with train it's really close to Colombo Fort railways station..
