When you leave Chennai International Airport, you can take the train from Tirusulam Railway Station. This is just outside the airport gate.

By Taxi

You have two choices when coming by taxi. You can either take a taxi when you come out of the airport, or you can take a rickshaw for a more authentic experience. Most taxi drivers won’t know much about Elements Hostel and how to get there (we’re quite small) so you will need to give a landmark. A good landmark is the Lifeline Hospital in Kilpauk. Most drivers will be able to find us that way. The taxi ride will cost you approximately INR 600-800.
