Directions to HI-Eastham
Map & Directions
Directions By Car:
The hostel address (75 Goody Hallet Dr Eastham MA) works very well with GPS or Google Maps. Once on Cape Cod, take Rt. 6 to the Orleans rotary (roundabout). From the rotary, exit at Rock Harbor. Turn left onto Rock Harbor Road. Turn right onto Bridge Road. Turn right onto Goody Hallet Drive. Hostel is on the left.
Directions By Bus:
From Hyannis or Provincetown, take the Plymouth & Brockton bus to the Orleans rotary (roundabout). (Do not go to Eastham!) When you board the bus, tell the driver you need to get off on the Orleans rotary (roundabout) at the Rock Harbor exit; drivers will do this during daylight hours. From the rotary, turn left onto Rock Harbor Road. Then turn right onto Bridge Road. Turn right onto Goody Hallet Drive. The hostel driveway will be on your left. The walk from the rotary to the hostel is about 0.75 mi (~1.2 km).
If you will arrive by bus, it is critical that you arrive before dark as the walk to the hostel is along a road with no sidewalk. It is certainly safe to walk to the hostel, but only during full daylight. (There is no taxi service in Orleans.)
Since you must arrive in Orleans before dark, you must leave Hyannis on the 4:30pm bus (or earlier). That means leaving Boston on the Plymouth & Brockton bus that leaves around 2pm. That means leaving NYC Port Authority on the 9:30am bus.
