        Comments from Utopians:

        "I stayed at FOOZOO for a few nights and found it comfy, quiet and clean. The hosts are delightful and full of island knowledge with great touring tips. An oasis in the bustling city of Colombo. The guys are now lifelong friends and I'll certainly be back." -- Phil D, Feb 25, 2017

        "FOOZOO is centrally located and it's super convenient to explore the city from there. What's best about the property is its hosts. They are always ready to help you with how to get around the city and what to do. I was super comfortable at Foozoo. My flight was late in the evening and they let me use my room until then for no extra charge, which was very nice of them." -- Carl, Feb 23, 2017

        "When you are gay and on tour there are a few things you seek out. A safe, gay-friendly place to stay, good gay locals you can befriend and converse with, and learn more about the local gay life. FOOZOO offers it all. Cozy quiet rooms that feel like home, possibly the most charming gay staff we have ever come across, and a positive vibe that lingers long after you've said your goodbyes to Sri Lanka." -- Pete & Andrew, Feb 23, 2017
