Descripción de la propiedad

El Alternativo is a new and inventive place to stay in Medellin and enjoy an original, friendly and Eco responsible atmosphere. On the roof, guests have use of a wonderful terrace and a kitchen. Opening on the street, the café hosts exhibitions and cultural activities. It serves natural juices, local coffee and organic tea, but also wine, beer and flavored rum. It’s a nice way to learn more about the city and meet local people.

El Alternativo is located in the safe, peaceful and bohemian neighborhood of Manila, in the district of Poblado.The hostel is very close to the metro station, buses and taxis make it easy to go anywhere in Medellin. And to go anywhere in Colombia, a taxi can take you in a few minutes and for less than 2 euros or dollars to the domestic flights airport or one of the two big bus terminals of the city. Manila lies away from the frenzy of Parque Lleras, but it's only a short and safe walk to go and get into it. They have a supermarket, an ATM, a metro station and bus lines at less than 5 minutes’ walk and can reach in less than 10 the famous Parque Lleras and the 'Zona Rosa', heart of the nightlife in Medellin.

    Very rarely I'd give a full score of 10. El Alternativo though is a very special place. Here's why you should choose it: People and atmosphere. Got caught up in the COVID-19 quarantine in this hostel and Fabrice & Nina have welcomed us and made us feel truly at home. In this tough situation (for us all and for their business) they have maintained great spirit and SAFETY. The place is in a convenient location, clean and fun. Still, it's all about atmosphere. Buenas vibras! Highly recommended :)

    Friendly staff, dope upstairs rooftop to chill out on / eat breakfast. Rooms aren't quite spacious but they have lockers and the beds were comfortable. Has a slightly more "authentic" feel than the other hostels in Manila (Poblado)

    The hostel has a perfect location. In Poblado but it's quite, you will still be able to sleep at night. The vibe didn't really catch me. Everybody is more by themselves in the terrace. Wifi could be better. The people working there are great and super helpful!

    El personal es bueno: siempre amables y atentos. Los ambientes no son muy funcionales, pero está bien. El hostel cuenta con tres tipos de desayuno a elegir. Las camas no cuentan con enchufes suficientes ni lámparas. La pieza de seis personas no tiene aire acondicionado.

    El Alternativo is a really chilled hostel with a nice terasse. I didn't like the atmosphere that much but depends always on the people staying there. Though the staff was really nice and funny. I thought it wasn't such a big problem but the rooms get really really sticky.
