Hello. I'm looking at going to to the folk festival in July and I'm looking for a cheap place to stay. The hostel is still expensive for a dorm bed at109 - pretty steep for a hostel but I guess it is the weekend festival so they can charge whatever they want.
Looking into flying into Providence. Can I get a shuttle/bus from there to Newport from the airport?
There are several private shuttle service companies run between airport to Newport. Also this one: http://www.peterpanbus.com/
Some hotels have shuttle services between the airport to hotel. If there's a big hotel near your hostel, you may be able to use their service.
Things always cost more in Newport, especially during the festivals and events. Look for place to stay outside the Newport for cheaper options.
