This was a really lovely hostel to stay in. It has a nice garden area with plenty of seating, and is only a minute's walk from the beach and about 5 minutes from Galle Road. Both the beach and Galle Road have lots of nice restaurants so it's well-placed, and there are plenty of tuk tuk drivers around which made travelling to and from Colombo really easy. The staff at the hostel were very friendly and helpful - I got a very early train from Mount Lavinia to Jaffna and they drove me to the train station and even prepared a breakfast for me, at no extra cost. I arranged an airport pickup for when I arrived which made everything a lot easier, although it took me ages to find an email (it's firstname.lastname@example.org and they replied very quickly). Overall, I would absolutely recommend this hostel, it's in a really nice area with good beach access and friendly staff. I'd go back.
