Ninel was very helpful during our stay. She knows good local places and helped us arrange the rest of our trip in Sri Lanka. She is friendly and outgoing and made us feel welcome in her house. She also let us leave our bags at her house while we toured other parts of Sri Lanka before returning on the final night. She's also environmentally conscious and has multiple bins for recyclables and trash. The house had a separate entrance which is nice for getting in late without disturbing anyone. There's also a beautiful garden that is wonderful in a busy city like Colombo. Location is a bit hard to find but Ninel has printed out directions for us to show drivers. I would recommend staying here if looking to explore Colombo.

It was ok. Not quite what we were expecting from the photographs. A bit tired, desperately in need of a coat of paint. The main issue was that it was not at all private. Despite a separate entrance, the owner also has a door into the stairwell of the apartment which she uses to enter the apartment when she wants to speak to you Not quite the privacy we were looking for.

Response from Ninel:
Airbnb guests are required to clean up and do their dish washing at least when they leave. You left it all for me. All this after I did not charge you for use of the AC as you said you did not have money. The house rules state clearly that you have to do your own cleaning if you want on a daily basis or pay for maid service. We change linen and do cleaning every 5 days. At your request I let you stay 6 hrs after check out time without charge. As for not being private, we do not come into the apartment but call you on the phone which you did not answer. I had no way of communicating with you. I therefore had to call you from the stairwell when I heard your voice in the sitting area. I'm sorry that you had not read the house rules properly.

Ninel is a lovely lady who was very helpful in assisting us to organise many aspects of our trip. She arranged for a taxi driver/guide to take us across to tricomalle via the cultural centre. The upstairs apartment is private and clean. Highly recommended.
