Additional instructions: 
Meet Jake in the common room at 8:15, and you'll walk over to this iconic bookstore together! It's an 8 minute walk from the hostel.

Right on our doorstep at 261 Colombus, City Lights is a legendary Beat Movement bookstore. It's a proper bookstore, with that real book smell, beautiful old wood floors and shelves right up to the ceilings, and signs encouraging you to pull up a stool, grab a book and stay a while. On all three floors you'll find chairs placed in quiet corners so you can take a seat among the stacks and find your next favorite book. The top floor is a poetry room with a rocking chair, whilst down in the basement are the non-fiction, genre and children's books, and a larger reading area with a table and chairs.
