HOW IS LA PLAYA’S NEIGHBORHOOD?
We are located in El Poblado, in a neighborhood called Provenza. In this area you will find the best restaurants in the city, local designers shops, bars and plenty of entertainment. It is also a very safe area with close access to the main public transport routes. At night it is very cheerful and can be noisy on weekends, but you will have at your disposal the best places in the city, without having to pay for taxis or buses.
HOW CLOSE IS THE METRO?
You can walk from the hostel to the Metro in less than 10 minutes. The nearest station is called Poblado. Or you can take the Metro Bus fee, which runs every 15 minutes in front of La Playa and takes you directly to Poblado Station.
HOW DO I GET TO LA PLAYA FROM THE AIRPORT?
Medellín has two airports: The “Olaya Herrera”, which is in the middle of the city, close to El Poblado neighborhood, and “José María Córdoba” International Airport, which is located in the city of Río Negro, about 45 minutes from Medellín. The local airport is only used for domestic flights, and is located less than 10 minutes from the hostel in a taxi. But most likely, you’ll arrive at the José María Córdoba Airport. ¡Here are your options!
WE PICK YOU UP!
We have an exclusive private car service to pick you up at the airport. You just have to write to firstname.lastname@example.org or Whatsapp of the Front Desk +57 321 777 6868 and we will schedule it. Tell us the date and time of arrival, and your flight number, to know what time to wait for you.
TAKE THE BUS
If your flight arrives between 5am and 10pm, you can take the bus that leaves every 30 minutes from José María Córdoba Airport, which costs approximately 9,000 Colombian pesos. This transportation will drop you off at the San Diego bus stop on Las Palmas Avenue. Once there, you must take a taxi to the hostel, which will cost you no more than 7,000 pesos.
At the “José María Córdoba” Airport there is a line of Collective Taxis that take you to the San Diego stop bus on Avenida Las Palmas for approximately 14,000 pesos. You will recognize them because they are yellow and do not turn on the air conditioning. They travel 24 hours a day, but you must wait until the taxi is full (4 places) to start the trip. If your luggage is too large, it is likely that the driver asks only two people to travel, and that each one pay double the amount (28 thousand pesos each).
At the “José María Córdoba” airport there are also private taxis. You will recognize them because they are white, with a blue line. If you wish, you can ask the driver to turn on the air conditioner. This service is available 24 hours a day, costs approximately 70,000 pesos and brings you directly to the hostel.
