From the Airport
After baggage claim you should look for the taxi stand, which is on the right for international arrivals and on the left for national arrivals. Please give them the our address (Calle 12c # 3-19, La Candelaria, Centro Histórico) and they will give you a slip of paper with the price that you should pay. The taxi ride from the airport costs approximately 20.000 pesos (11 USD) between 06:00 and 20:00 and 22.000 pesos (12 USD) between 20:00 and 06:00.

From the Bus Terminal
The best way to travel from the bus terminal is by taxi. Please tell the taxi driver to take you to our address (Calle 12c # 3-19, La Candelaria, Centro Histórico). The taxi ride from the bus terminal to the hostel costs approximately 9.000 pesos (5 USD) between 06:00 and 20:00 or 11.000 pesos (6 USD) between 20:00 and 06:00.

PLEASE BE ADVISED: Some taxi drivers may try to tell you that you should not stay in the Historic Center and that they recommend you stay at a different hotel.

If you are in transmilenio, you should look for bus called "Las Aguas" or bus number 11 and get off in Las Aguas station, leave the station and walk south three blocks through the plaza with a stone statute. You should pass a building called "Hotel Continental", keep going south for two more blocks, turn left on the green builiding we are on the southeast end of the street diagonal to a parkinglot. (Note that the nearest mountain top of the station is an east reference point).
