Directions by Car:
The hostel address (75 Goody Hallet Dr., Eastham MA 02642) works well with GPS or Google Maps. On Cape Cod, take Rt. 6 to the Orleans rotary (roundabout). From the rotary, take the exit for 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 make this requested stop 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 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.
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..
HI Eastham is located near Rock Harbor, Boat Meadow and Skaket Beaches of Cape Cod Bay, not far from the quaint shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants of Orleans Center. Just a short ride or hike down the Cape Cod Rail Trail from Eastham Windmill and the Salt Pond Visitor Center, gateway to the Cape Cod National Seashore and its forest trails, lighthouses and beaches.
