    Description

    We are Silvie & Ivet, managing a Hostel situated in Mount Lavinia (south Colombo), Sri Lanka. The Hostel is 200m from the beach (the best one in Colombo area), there are some nice restaurants and bars. The beach is not a surf spot, but it's an amazing spot for Scuba diving, since there are some wreck places. Hostel is also close to the main road but still in pretty quiet area. About the Hostel - We have dorms and some private rooms and also small BBQ restaurant, which was recently reopen. The best spot is the rooftop garden with kitchen, where all the people are meeting for chat, drink, sunbathing, cooking, yoga or meditation.

    If you don't have a common sense, please, just skip this ad, ain't nobody got time for that.

    What are we looking for?
    We need someone who is not afraid of work, you're not going to be our slave, but we need some work to be done. But no worries we are friendly, so for sure we can somehow make it work and schedule it depending on your plans as well. The minimum stay could be a couple of days, a week or a month, that is up to you.

    You would cooperate with us, two Czech girls, local guy who is in charge of cleaning and gardening and very helpful local owner.

    Looking forward to working with committed travel -workawayers!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    As we mentioned, there is main road very close, so you can just easily hop on the bus and get to Colombo city center (temples, museum, fish market, shopping,..) for aprox 30 Rs. The Mount Lavinia train station is just 15 min walk away. You can jump on the train to the south or to the city center for connecting trains. You can go to the beach, try Scuba diving or snorkelling. If you wanna travel around the island, Colombo is a great spot for the beginning of your journey.
