- From the airport:

Take a collective transport, usually a 'van'. Tickets are sold inside the airport. They'll know El Quijote Hostel ('Mina' street between 'Diaz Ordaz' and 'Mier y Teran' streets)

- From the 1st class bus (coach) station (main station, ADO and OCC buses). There are 2 options:

1.- Take a Taxi (at any hour, the taxi will cost approximately $3-4 USD, 2-3 GBP or around $45 MXN, depending on your negotiation skills in Spanish). It is suggested the fare is set before getting in the taxi.

2.- Other way. Take public-urban transport (bus - approximately $6 MXN) 2 blocks walking down from the bus station to 'Avenida Jurez'. The bus has to be labeled towards 'ARTEAGA', 'CENTRAL DE ABASTOS' and/or 'CENTRAL'. It would leave you almost at the hostel door. You should tell the driver (in Spanish) that you need to get off at 'Mina' street crossing 'Diaz Ordaz' street. These buses only work during business hours (8am to 9pm). Drivers usually do not speak English, however they are usually helpful.

- From the AU bus (coach) station on the Periferico:

Walk 2 blocks (about 2 or 3 minutes walking) heading to the hostel direction. Use a map. Please, be careful crossing the avenue (Periferico).
