  • I highly recommend this hostel + this location to anybody visiting Colombo for the first time. The beach is a stone's throw away, and littered with shacks serving all kinds of food. The little neighbourhood around is also quiet and green. There is a morning bakery van that announces its arrival with music, and inside the hostel, you can also get homemade local meals made for you. The staff is amazingly sweet and the garden of the hostel, the lounging spaces, and the clean kitchens are darling.
