The YMCA in central Colombo is a terrible place. It is perhaps the only budget accommodation in central Colombo (location is good) but for you can find much better places for little more money within a short tuk tuk ride.
The bulding is in terrible shape. The cheapest rooms are very old, full of bugs (the size of your finger) and extremely hot. The fan is very noisy and don't help much. The bathroom is among the worst I have seen in my life, with unidentified liquids leaking from the pipe.
More expensive rooms are ok (although smelling badly) but highly overpriced (7500 rupees).
The staff is nice though. Overall a terrible place.
