When traveling to Ella, we recommend you do it by train. The gentle climb can best be described as out of this world, thanks to the jaw dropping sceneries that surround you. From lush green hilltops, rocky mountains and waterfalls, to steep valleys just inches away from your train – it will be a ride to remember.
There are three ways of getting to Ella by train – via Ratnapura, via Kandy and via Nuwara Eliya. The Ratnapura-route is the most scenic of the three. Once you get to Ella train station, walk up Ella Station Road and turn left. We are on the right-hand side of the first left turn by the Police Station. There is a prominent signboard which signifies that you are within close proximity to Hangover Hostels.
In case you’ve opted for the journey by bus, walk towards the shopping district and you’ll be near the train station.
