The Backpackers® Shuttle can be scheduled for transportation to and from the airport and costs $90. Contact the office by phone or email for availability.
There is a public transportation bus system. Please be advised that the bus will not allow luggage or surfboards but a backpack typically is allowed. Google Navigation works really well for bus stops info.
From the airport: At Nimitz Hwy, take # 62 bus and transfer to the # 52 in Wahiawa (Wahiawa Transit Center) – then transfer to the #60 in Haleiwa. Get off one stop past Waimea Bay: the bus stops 20 meters past the hostel. If your arriving anytime after 7pm you need to arrange for a late check-in. Our office closes at 7pm.
If you have rented a car, directions are as follows: Take the H1 West towards Aiea/Pearl City, then take H2 North towards Mililani / Wahiawa. The H2 Highway will eventually end and become Kamehameha Hwy, just continue forward following signs to North Shore / Haleiwa. You will follow this road all the way to Backpackers. You will go past Haleiwa and continue North approximately 8 km / 5 miles. Backpackers will be just past Waimea Bay / Waimea Valley. We are the third driveway on your right past the white church tower.
