How is Kalpitiya Beach Hostel rated on booking websites?


Just 50 meters from the ocean beach and 1.5 kilometers to the main kite surf lagoon, Kalpitiya Beach Hostel is the ideal budget choice for kite surfing, dolphin watching, snorkeling, diving, or just chillin' on the sand under the palm trees. Kite surfing equipment, scooters and even motor boats are available for rent.

Our hostel features a communal kitchen, drinks for sale, free WiFi, hammocks, board games, lawn games such as petanque and Molkee, a shady coconut grove and amazing sunsets every evening just 50 meters away on the beach. Also, a maximum of four beds per dorm room!

We offer a convenient base for river and jeep safaris to Wilpattu National Park as well as the archaeological ruins of Yapahuwa and many interesting trips by motorboat and kayak to the area's many islands.

Our staff speak English, Spanish, Ukrainian, Russian, Sinhala and Tamil. We're currently working on our French :-)

Location and Contact


• By car or van transfer:
• We are happy to arrange an airport transfer or transfer from another place on the island. This is especially useful if you are a kite surfer with all your own gear. An airport transfer is 48 euro (9000 rupees) and takes 3-4 hours, depending on traffic and conditions. You can pay the driver directly upon arrival. Please note: we take no commission for these transfers, it's just a fair price for the driver. From other places on the island, just ask and we can give you a quote.
• By public transport:
• From the airport, get a taxi or tuktuk to Negombo Bus Terminal (tuktuks should be about 600 outside the gates). From Negombo, catch a bus to Chilaw. Change buses in Chilaw bus terminal to Puttalam. A few kilometers before Puttalam, get off at Palaviya Junction and catch a bus to Kalpitiya (around the corner on the road to Kalpitiya). If you miss the junction, just go to Puttalam bus terminal and get a Kalpitiya bus from there. From Kalpitiya, you'll need a tuktuk to our beach (about 500 rupees). We are at Kandakuliya Beach, across from Welle Wadiya Resort, which most tuktuk drivers know. We are also on Google Maps: Kalpitiya Beach Hostel. If you don't want to buy a SIM and data (which is very cheap by the way – Dialog is the best provider), remember you can download an offline version of Google Maps.
• There is also a train from Negombo to Puttalam. It takes a little longer than the bus, but it's easier. Also get off at Palaviya Junction, before Puttalam, but if you miss the Palaviya stop, just get off in Puttalam and catch a bus to Kalpitiya.
• The train schedule can be found here: http://slr.malindaprasad.com/index.php?from=NGB&to=PTM
• Note the airport is not in Colombo and there is no reason to go to Colombo in order to get to our hostel.
