From the Airport or the Bus Terminal
When coming from the airport or the bus terminal we recommend that you take a taxi that leaves you in front of the door of the hostel, since from there transportation to any place in Bogot can be quite complicated and there is no Transmilenio from these places.
Cost and duration:
From the airport: $17.000 Colombian pesos (COP) ~ US$8; around 30 minutes
From the bus terminal: $10.000 COP ~ US$5; around 20 minutes but depends on traffic.
