We suggest Google maps or Mapquest for mapping the journey. From all points off Cape Cod: Cross at the Sagamore Bridge. Continue on route 6 (Mid-Cape Highway) approximately 13 miles. Take exit 6 to MA-132 (Iyannough Rd) toward Barnstable/Hyannis. At the traffic circle, take the 2nd exit onto Barnstable Rd. Barnstable Rd becomes Ocean St. The hostel will be about one mile from the traffic circle, on the right.

For bus service, take the Plymouth and Brockton Bus from South Station in Boston and get off at the Hyannis Transportation Center. From New York City and Providence RI, take the Peter Pan Bus to the Hyannis Transportation Center. Local bus service to the Transportation Center is also available from Falmouth/Woods Hole, Eastham/Orleans, and Truro/Provincetown.

It is a 0.4 mi walk from the Hyannis Transportation Center to the hostel (see map below). You can follow the sidewalk from point A south directly to the intersection of Main St., Center St. and Old Colony Rd (despite the map route shown). From there, continue on Old Colony Rd to Ocean St. Or, catch the free Hyannis Trolley to the Ocean Street ferry docks(seasonal service only - check website for details) and walk across the street to the Hostel.

Fly into Barnstable Municipal Airport and take a taxi (~$6) to the hostel.
