Locate yourself in Colombian streets by finding the hostel...

Colombia works with a very simple cross numeric system “Calle” that increases from south to north and “Carrera” that increases from east to west. It could be also an address east or south if it’s farther than the cero point. Ah, there is also a carrera or calle "1". The Hostel is located on “Calle 11” crossing “carrera 1”. The full address is: Calle 11 # 1-38. Happy roads!!!
