Both the train and ferry terminal are located approx 3km out of town. The easiest way to get to the hostel is to jump onto the hostel shuttle bus (free) or to take a taxi (approx $8 as of 2007)
Please do not walk from the late ferry, as it is about an hours walk to the hostel, and it will be assumed the booking is a no show with your bed to be given away!!!
