I liked this place! The beds aren't comfortable though as it's a thin mattress on top of glass and the dining facilities could've been better, but good for a night or two.

Location is good, near the main train station and bus terminal but tuk tuk driver said far and ask for 300Rs. Dorm room is relatively small for 4 persons with luggages. Have enough toilets and shower cubicles. Have a rooftop but nothing to see. Free breakfast.

プライベートルームで予約し、チェックインしたら予約が取れていなくてドミトリーを案内された。(ちなみに同じ日に来た旅行客もそのような対応されて、結局同じ部屋に) 次の日以降に空き次第部屋を案内すると言っていたのに、何事もなかったかのように同じドミトリーに案内された。 またも接客がひどい。店員はロビーで寝てるし、タバコも吸うし。何よりミスに対して何の謝罪もない。部屋も汚い。ロッカーも鍵があるけど簡単に空いてしまう。 朝食つくって聞いてたけど、結局一度も出なかった。とにかく落ち着かない。 ホテルの場所も分かりづらい。

Miracle City Inn Hostel is a great value for either a short or long stay in Colombo. It’s newly renovated, well-designed, and quiet.

DO NOT STAY HERE. First of all there is construction-constant loud banging and sawing starting at 8 AM. The bigger problem is the dishonest staff though. I booked the room rate for breakfast and asked for breakfast. They said it wasn't included in my room rate. I showed them on the hotels.com site ...
