Buses (#s 1, 3 and 4 for Onetangi at a cost of $4.70) and taxis meet all Fullers Ferries and travel to all the main locations on the island. Take the Onetangi bus (# 4 ). Number 1A is best between 4.30 - 7pm weekdays as this drops you off opposite the hostel, otherwise get off at the last stop along the beachfront, walk up the steps (all 187 of them) and the hostel is 50m on your right.
