    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.

    Nice budget alternative

    I stayed in a premium capsule for two nights. It was nice and clean and the room had a perfect air conditioner. Also the service was good. This is a good budget alternative and the capsule concept will only get problematic if your roommates snore or can’t keep quiet during the night.
