During a short but pleasant stay at the Clock Inn, the reception guy, Thyagu, selflessly helped me out more than any other stranger has before. I'd left something valuable in Weligama, and didnt have time to retrieve it before leaving Sri Lanka. When asking Thyagu about possible courier servics, he volunteered to go three hours on a train on his day off, and then help ship my belongings to me. So in addition to being a clean and competetively priced hostel (for Colombo), the Clock Inn seems to be staffed by saints, or at least some of the most helpfil and friendly people Ive met in my travels.
