THE ORIGINAL HOSTEL IN SRI LANKA

Colombo City Hostel is your home away from home and was the first hostel in Sri Lanka and still is the only hostel chain, with sister hostels in Kandy and Dambulla .

We are both a party hostel and a relaxed home with events from BBQs to pubcrawls to simple drinking games or a social dinner in our outdoor Kitchen.

Set in a traditional Sri Lankan house, Colombo City Hostel is a simple yet stylish hostel that guarantees a clean, affordable, fun environment to meet new people and create unforgettable memories.

Colombo City Hostel is in metropolitan Kohuwalla (pronounced Ko-hoo-va-lah). The hostel is handily located, a mere 250 rupee to the beach and a short tuk tuk ride to the cultural heart of the city, Colombo 7.

Guests can find:

-FREE Super fast 4G WiFi

-No curfew/ 24h security

-FREE lockers with power plugs in keep your belongings charged and secure

-A fully equipped kitchen available 24/7 (the supermarket is just down the street)
