Odette Lawler thinks…

"Beautiful location with a lovely view of the lake. Far enough from town that it felt peaceful, but a easy 5 minute walk to a tienda or 10 minute walk to the main plaza. Had two lovely young dogs and…"

From Medellín to Guatapé: Direct buses from Medellín leave from the Terminal del Norte (directly connected to the Caribe Metro Station) approximately every hour starting at 6am. The average fare is 12,000 COP (negotiable). The last bus from Medellín to Guatapé is at 6pm. The last bus from Guatapé to Medellín is at 6:30pm (7:45pm on Sundays and Holidays). Return buses to Medellín fill up quickly on weekends – buy your ticket in advance. If you are coming by bus from anywhere along the Bogotá - Medellín highway, ask to be dropped at the first highway turnoff to Marinilla and you can catch a Guatapé bound bus there, saving about an hour travel time each way.

From Guatapé to the Hostel: We are located just 3 minutes walking from town on the road to the Monastery and Quebrada Arriba. From the Parque Central/bus office walk one block to the lake, turn right and follow the malecón (waterfront promenade). Make a right turn just before the bridge at the end of the malecón. Follow this road until it ends at a T intersection. Turn left and follow this road out of town and look for our welcome signs on the right. Or take a mototaxi from the Parque Central (about 3000 pesos). We are located next to Deotroslados Art Gallery.

Note: Many buses from Medellín pass through the center of Guatapé and continue to San Rafael, crossing the bridge at the end of the malecón. Ask your driver to be dropped off right before the bridge to avoid part of the walk from the Parque Central.
