Well, by car the time from San Francisco to Santa Cruz is 1 hour 20 minutes. However, presuming you are taking a bus or train, it takes a while longer. You will need to take the Caltrain from the SF airport to San Jose, then you will need to get the #17 bus from San Jose to Santa Cruz. Total time is more like 3 hours.

I can't help you with hostels. I know there is a cheap one at the lighthouse (Pigeon Point?) halfway between SF and Santa Cruz on the coast for about $17, but it would be hard to get there except by hitch-hiking. No buses run on that route.

Enjoy.
