I would like to know how do I get there by public transportation and if the monastery itself has a guest house. I have been recently in one Benedict Nunnery in Guatapé, Medellín. It was a marvelous experience of one week.

Yes you can get there by public transport. you travel to ST augustine at the bottom of St John Rd and ther you get the mini van that will take you to the monastery for a minimal fee.
