The easiest way is to pre-arrange an airport transfer with us; alternatively, you will find taxi's in arrivals at the airport as well; or if you're more adventurous you could take public transport. Here’s how to get to us !
From the Airport, catch bus 187 (Highway Bus) to Colombo. Once you reach Colombo Fort (Pettah) jump bus 100 or 101 to Colombo and ask to get off at ‘The Lion Pub’ in Mount Lavinia (Every bus conductor knows the 'Lion Pub'). Cross over to the Lion Pub, look right you'll see the ‘Burger King’. Walk towards the Burger King until you reach BEACH ROAD (Just near Factory Outlet). Walk down Beach Road and turn left on to DE SARAM ROAD; and in 50 meters "SAMUDRA MAWATHA" is on your right. We are just around the Corner at No 6A
From Colombo Fort train station take the train to Mount Lavinia… Form the Mount Lavinia Railway Station, it’s a 15 minute walk, or LKR 50 Tuk Tuk Ride (10 min ride) You need to take Hotel Road towards the Main Road till you get onto and walk towards the Main Galle Road. The 4th Road to your left side is Barnes Avenue. Come down this to the very end and you fall on to De Saram Road, and we are just there.
Make sure your taxi's (Tuk Tuk) meter is ON! All taxis in Colombo are required to have a meter and it is always cheaper than trying to negotiate with the driver. Ask to be dropped off at Samudra Mawatha, on Off Beach Road, Mount Lavinia, and follow the above instructions. When coming from Colombo Beach Road is located just Opposite U.S Car Sales in Mount Lavinia.(The cost would be approx LKR 550 on a meter Tuk tuk from Fort Railway Station Colombo)
We can arrange an airport pickup for approx. US $ 20/-. (Please note price is subject to change. So please contact and confirm).
We would need flight details (Flight number and time of arrival) in order for us to arrange the pick up.
You can also get an UBER for approximately $15 from the airport to the hostel as well.
Or if you do get a local sim card we can be easily located on Google maps too
