You might have problems finding your Pisa hostel as the streets are quite chaotic, so do not be afraid to ask people for directions and be sure to know the name of the street where your Pisa hostel is located. Although Pisa is a massive tourist city, most locals do not speak English but are very helpful. In other words, basic Italian knowledge can do miracles. At least get to know the colors as the bus lines are in colors ("verdi" is green, "rosso" is red).
You can go to Pisa by plain or train. The bus station is very close to the center of the city and all hostels in Pisa are within twenty minutes' walking at most -- some of them are even closer.
