Map and Directions


From Airport to property
1. Bus No. 187 from Katunayake Airport to Colombo Fort, then change to a Colombo Fort to Badulla train. Get down at Ella train station. Take a tuk from town or walk and proceed to Halpe Road which is adjacent to Ella Tunnel and proceed for 1km to the property. The property road is ‘Rathnagiri Estate Road’ (marked on Google maps). Look for ‘Village Hostel’ sign boards located strategically along the way.
2. Get a taxi from the service desk at Bandaranaike International Airport Arrivals. The hostel is roughly 207km from the airport. Taxi fee is around USD 100. The address is provided in English and Sinhalese both as follows. ‘Village Hostel’, Galpitiyagoda, off Halpe Road, Ella. Sri Lanka. ‘Village Hostel’,ගල්පිටියාගොඩ, රත්නගිරි වත්ත පාර, හල්පෙ පාර, අල්ල. You may call us if you take taxi and let us talk to the driver, it may be better to guide them in Sinhala. You can find our contact detail in your confirmation letter after you made booking.

The property is located 1.4km from the Ella Town Centre and within a 20 minute walk from the same. A tuk tuk can be hired from town for approximately $2.5 to get to the property. Part of the road leading to the property will be through scenic tea plantations but easily accessible by vehicle.

Take the first road to the right immediately after the Ella Tunnel on the main road (Wellwaya-Ella-Kumbalwela road) when coming from the Ella Town Centre or the Train station. Proceed along this road for 1 km until you come to a 'y' junction at the 1km post. Take the gravel road (motorable) leading up from the junction and proceed for 400m to the property.
