We hiked to the glacier from the hostel. It took us 4 hours to go to the glacier, take some photos and look at the view, and get back to the hostel. It was a lovely and beautiful walk:) If you think it's to far there are shuttlebuses for 12.5 that will get you to a car park closer to the glacier.
Good luck :)
