Clock Inn Reviews

Clock Inn Colombo is a quirky, modern backpack hostel in Bambalapitiya, Colombo. With reliable Wi-Fi, a hearty breakfast, and an engaging communal area, the hostel mostly caters to travelers who are spending a few days in Colombo, including long-term guests who stay more than a month.

The Location

The hostel is situated in Bambalapitiya in Colombo. While none of the major tourist attractions can be accessed by walking, most of them are only a short tuk-tuk or a bus ride away. The bus stop is right in front of the hostel. There are many restaurants nearby, including small, cheap bakeries. Majestic City Shopping Mall is only a five-minute walk away. To get to the hostel, you can take a tuk-tuk from Colombo Fort Railway Station or Colombo Central Bus Stand. If you are coming directly from the airport, contact the hostel to arrange a pickup.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The hostel is one of the oldest hostels in the city. While it is cleaned thrice or more times a day, some washroom walls are worn out. There are three four-bed dormitories and three six-bed dormitories on the second floor with a shared washroom featuring a few shower cubicles. Free linen and towels are provided to every guest. There are individual safety lockers and a reading light, and power points for each bed. All the rooms are air-conditioned throughout the day. Hot water is available at the property during the entire day. Private double rooms are situated on the first floor with en suite bathrooms.

Common Spaces

Clock Inn Colombo has a large common space. The lounge is air-conditioned, quirky, and has a welcoming vibe. Outside guests are allowed until 10 p.m. at the hostel. The hostel also has a balcony, which is also a smoking zone. Breakfast -- which includes eggs of your choice, sausages, toast with jam and butter, fresh fruit, and cornflakes -- is included in your room price. Free tea/coffee and water refills are available throughout the day. The reception features a map of the city, tourist info, a book exchange, and a collection of DVDs. At the hostel, guests can get their laundry done for a small fee.


This is a fabulous hostel at which to stay if you are traveling in Colombo for a few days. The atmosphere, with a large communal area, is very welcoming. The hostel also organizers a few day tours and Sri Lankan food events. The air-conditioned rooms and communal areas throughout the day make it a comfortable stay in a hot and humid city like Colombo.
