We are in the Patio Bonito, Poblado neighbourhood of Medellin. Less than ten minutes walk from the metro station Poblado. In Medellin there are two bus terminals serving the south and north of the country and two airports, one offering flights to small towns and the Pacific coast , the other with flights to the main cities and international flights.
From the south bus station (Ecuador, Popayan, Cali, Salento, Manizales etc)
Option 1: walk to the hostel in less than thirty minutes. Exit the bus station and walk down Calle 10 until you reach Avenida Las Vegas. Turn right on Avenida Las Vegas and walk three hundred meters and cross the walkbridge. Then walk down Transversal 5A pass one intersection and the hostel is on the right in the middle of the street.
Option 2: take a taxi will cost at most 6.000 pesos. Tell the driver to take you to Patio Bonito then give him the direction of the hostel. It is at most ten minutes in taxi.
From the north bus terminal (Bogota, Cartagena, Santa Marta, Turbo, Guatape, Santa Fe de Antioquia)
Option 1: the bus station is connected to the metro system. The stop is Caribe. Take the metro south to Poblado station and walk ten minutes to the hostel.
Option 2: taxi, 12.000-13.000 pesos.
From the main Airport, Jose Maria Cordova in Rionegro (airport code MDE)
NOTE: Medellin´s main airport is forty minutes in taxi from the city of Medellin.
Option 1: take a taxi. The official price of a taxi from the airport to the hostel and city of Medellin is 57.000 pesos.
Option 2: take a collective taxi sharing with three others for 15.000 pesos per person. The collective taxi will leave you in the San Diego suburb of Medellin. From there it’s a 8.000 pesos taxi ride to the Black Sheep.
Option 3: take the bus from the airport, located at the front of the taxi line outside buggage pickup, to Medellin. Cost 7.500 pesos. The bus takes just under an hour and leaves every twenty minutes or so. Get off at San Diego if possible and then take a taxi as in Option 2. Alternatively stay on the bus until the center of Medellin and take the metro from the center to Poblado station.
