cheap accomodation

Anyone know any cheap accomodation in colombo?

Ive found a couple but their in wellawata, and Ive a feeling thats far from all the action of bars, restuarants and sights.

so if anyone has suggestions,that would be great,

oh, how safe is it to walk the streets alone,day and night?

A place in the Colombo fort call YMCA room charge will about 4-6 us$ .that is most cheapest accommodation you find in Colombo fort .

There is no problem to walk alone the street try to avoid rush hours it normally between 0730-0930 hrs , 1300-1430 hrs and 1600-1800hrs.

Thanks you,

a couple of places I've had reccommended to me but not used yet.

Wafarers Inn,

77 Rosemead Place,

Colombo, 7. Tel; +94-1-2693936


Mrs Nanayakara's Guest House,

20 Chelsea Gardens,

Colombo. Tel; > +94-71-1178758

I did go to Mrs nanayakars house but unfortunately she was full. It looked good. Like a little cottage in a very quiet street near the centre.

Hi there....

All depends on what you mean by "cheap" of course, last Saturday night i stayed in the Regency wing at Galle Face Hotel in Colombo for $54 (£27) on a B&B basis, well thats pretty cheap in my books !

E-mail me on davidjstockwell@btinternet.com and i will let you know the agent that made that possible !
