From the airport and bus station, the best option is taking a taxi. The rates are already set, but you can negotiate them.

From the airport $10000 Colombian pesos ( 5 dolars) and it takes 10 minutes till the hostel.
From the bus station $15000 Colombian pesos (7.5 dolars) and it takes 30 minutes till the hostel.

If you are coming in a hired bus, ask them to leave you at Fernandez del Madrid Square

Located Near
