    An amazing place that makes you feel like home away from home. The hostel has an uplifting and friendly atmosphere and the staff are always ready to assist and are so friendly. The hostel is situated in a trendy neighbourhood and is close to all necessities and night life. I would recommend this hostel to all seeking to enjoy Medellin.

    Superb

    I really enjoyed my time at El Alternativo! The rooms are very comfortable and the hostel is really clean throughout. You have three options for the included breakfast, which are freshly prepared for you and very tasty! I found the hostel to be social with a really nice atmosphere. The staff are friendly and helpful; special mention to Santi! Its close to the metro and also Parque Lleras which has lots of options if you want a night out, also lots of restaurants in the area, so a great location!

    Fabulous

    Nice chilled hostel close to El Poblado metro station. Area very safe and easy to walk to restaurants/bars. Rooftop a great place to relax/meet other travellers and has a well-equipped kitchen (although not much storage space for groceries). Beds comfortable. Rooms very hot as only have fans. David incredibly helpful and friendly. Unfortunately a bit of a mix-up with another staff member and someone else was allocated my boyfriend's bed but easily sorted. Breakfast delicious. No keys for dorms.

    Nice hostel, clean and a cool terrace area however rooms were quite stuffy and warm and not too much of an atmosphere. Also wifi was s***. That being said, it was in a great location close to bars and close to metro and the staff were super nice and helpful.
