From Airport: Take A Express Bus (3 lei) to Stefan cel Mare si Sfant Bvd. intersection with Puskin str. (Central McDonalds bus stop). Walk on Puskin str (street). towards Cosmonautilor str. for 5-7 mins (minutes) (in the direction of Sun City mall). On Cosmonautilor str. turn right and walk one block. Once you pass the blue Carwash located on your right, turn left. The Hostel is located in the second building on your left, middle entrance, first floor, number 24. From BUS stations: When you arrive from Romania or Ukraine there are three main bus stations in Chisinau where you can be dropped: Central, South, and North. You can reach us by foot if you are dropped at CENTRAL bus station by walking towards Puskin str. and following the directions from above. But you have to take a taxi if you come from the other two stations since they are much further away from the center (40-50 lei or 3 euros). From TRAIN station: Take minibus 160, 122, or 103 to the intersection of Alexandru cel Bun str. and Puskin str. (in the direction of BUIUCANI). Walk one street to your right on Puskin str. towards Cosmonautilor str. Follow directions above. By Taxi: If you take the taxi from the airport (13 km) make sure you use the services of the taxi stand within the airport. It will take 20-30 minutes to get to the Hostel and it will cost you between 80-220 lei depending on the time of the day.
