Location Information

The beautiful town of Guatapé is located less than 2 hours from Medellín via a safe and well-maintained highway with direct bus service. Our hostel is located just 10 minutes walking from the famous Guatapé malecón, a waterfront promenade with lots of arts and crafts, food vendors, bars, restaurants, and amusements, and yet our quiet, spacious property with amazing views and private lake access feels like it is miles away from civilization and offers our guests the chance to relax, enjoy the fresh air, and feel completely detached from the stress of city life.
