We’re located in the heart of the city.
It’s easy to find us, but hard to leave.
667 Main Street
Buffalo, NY 14203
We are located in the heart of Buffalo's Theater District, adjacent to Shea's Buffalo Performing Art Center and right next door to the Town Ballroom. Centrally between Allentown and Chippewa Street, a free train ride from the Key Bank Center, Harbor Centor, Sahlen Field, Canalside, and Buffalo-Niagara Conference Center, just blocks away from the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.
The hostel is a short walk from Historic Allentown and the Chippewa Strip where live music and nightlife is ample. A 10 minute walk from the infamous Anchor Bar where Buffalo chicken wings were invented.
HOW TO GET HERE
We are closest to the downtown Amtrak Exchange Station, however some trains only go to Amtrak Depew Station in the suburbs. Both work, Exchange is just a lot closer.
From Amtrak Exchange Station:
Walk west towards Washington Street to Main Street, walk left to Canal Side NFTA Train Station--this is an above ground subway that is free. Take the train going towards"University", you will get off at the Fountain Plaza Station (last above ground free stop). Walk north towards the "Shea's Buffalo" sign. We are just past this sign on the opposite side of the street at 667 Main St. Heres a link to the trek to us, which is easy to walk as well. A cab or rideshare should be in the $8-17 range.
From Amtrak Depew Station:
You can take local NFTA bus #46 to Walden Galleria Mall, transfer to #6 to downtown.
Heres a link to the trek.
Locals Buses do not run late, so Cabs & Rideshares are usually the easiest way to get downtown. Fare is roughly $25-40.
The Buffalo-Niagara International Airport is about 10 miles away. There are a number of cab or ride sharing (Lyft, Uber, Airport Taxi) options that you can use. Also, you can hop on the local NFTA bus # 24 ($2, need correct change). Take 24 downtown, get off at Washington & Chippewa Streets, from there, head west on Chippewa, make a right onto Main St, we will be about a block down on the right, opposite and further past the "Shea's Buffalo" sign.
Here's a google map link ;)
We are located in downtown Buffalo at 667 Main St. Close to the 190 and 33 highways.
From the Downtown Bus Terminal aka Greyhound Station
The downtown Greyhound station is about a 15-20 minute walk to the hostel (1.6 miles). The easiest way to get here is on foot or by the above ground subway train that runs on Main Street (Church Station to Fountain Plaza Station). Walk west out of the Station (towards Ellicott & Washington Streets) to Main St and turn right onto Main. The hostel will be about a 6 blocks down the road on the right hand side. We are on the oppostie of the large "Shea's Buffalo" sign a little further down directly across from Alleyway Theater--(if you get to Tupper St you've gone too far).
If arriving to Buffalo on bicycle, follow route 5 until you get to 667 Main St.
