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.

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.

    Tolles Hostel, hab mich sofort wohl gefühlt. Die 6er-Zimmer waren etwas stickig, da es kein richtiges Fenster hat. Das Frühstück ist toll!

    Super friendly staff, made me feel very welcome when I arrived at 6am. Great breakfast with different options, fully equipped kitchen, nice vibes and awesome terrace to chill! Only minus is that there are only small windows in the 6 bed dorms. Would always come back :)

    Das Hostel an sich hat uns gut gefallen, die Dachterrasse war top, das Frühstück gut, die Bäder sauber und die Mitarbeiter nett. Schade war, dass das Zimmer, auf das wir umgebucht wurden, gar kein Fenster hatte. Es hätte 1-2 Bäder mehr geben können. An sich ist es ein gutes Hostel.

    All in all a good but not perfect hostel. The dorms are really small and they had neither A/C nor window so it was kind of difficult to get oxygen into the room. Also my mattress was really old so I slept in a "hole". The staff is really friendly and the location is safe and nice (5 minutes to the next supermarket, 10 to the metro station Poblado from where you can reach everything else quickly). Nice rooftop terrace. The kitchen is a bit small and also there could be more bathrooms. But good.
