Our group's 'Viceroy Special' train paused here for many minutes to cross (meet) a mixed train (with freight wagons and at the rear, passenger carriages).

The station was clean and well looked after.

There is at least one kiosk.

As usual in Sri Lanka for all but the smallest stations, it is staffed whenever trains are timetabled to stop for passengers.

Amazing trip on the train up into the hills for such a small fee.
If you're in Sri Lanka you must catch the train through the countryside it's unbelievable.

Amazing positive experience on train station in Ella.
I lost my wallet at the station in Ella and I got it back the next day, thank's to a very kind station master. Very satisfied with the service and honesty of all employees on the station.

If you are getting off at this train stop, take a picture of your ticket. There is a person collecting the tickets from all the passengers when they are leaving the train station. I didn't know that, asked the guy collecting the tickets if I can keep mine as a present, but the guy was unpleasant, didn't even look at me, showing me to leave. I see this place totally prepared for and welcoming tourists.
The railway station itself is a nice and historical building. If you enjoy things like that, I recommend to visit the in-between train arrivals. Otherwise the place is too crowded and you just move on your way to the exit with everyone else.

Well maintained railway station. Nicely signposted for the carriages. Announcements can actually be understood!

Ella has become a very popular destination with the tourists in Sri Lanka. The railway station serves as a major gateway facilitating travel to the popular city. The station is well maintained and the staff in attendance barring the SM were quite helpful to share details of the attractions nearby. .

I visited the station as the outside look was amazing. I wanted to go inside and check, but the Officials said no as there was no train coming at that time. They said the platform ticket can be issued only during a trian's arrival time. HHHHMmmm... not only he said that he was very sarcastic about our request.....Strange.......
