Come to visit

But if I do not have a vehicle…

How can i get there?

Bus transportation

Bus transportation

You can take the bus at “Calle 50 con Carrera 40” (The last one leaves at 10:00 PM), We recommend to tell the dispatcher (or the driver) that you are going to “tres puertas” so they can guide you. Once you get to “tres puertas” you will be 100mts away from the hostel.

To get back to Medellín the buses pass by the hostel.

Metrocable transportation

Metrocable transportation

To get to the hostel by the Metrocable you have to take the Metro system and go all the way to the end of the Cable Arví (Line L). The schedule is from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM (More info).

The Metrocable works every day but Mondays (or Tuesday when Monday was a holiday)

Taxi transportation

Taxi transportation

You can also come to al bosque by taxi or Uber at any time, the price varies depending on where you are in the city.

If you´re gonna do this is recommendable to have marked on the map the hostel location to guide the driver.

Are you ready to pause and recharge your energy?
