How to get at El Alternativo?

From the airport

With a taxi, the easiest:

The international airport lies out of the city. The taxi ride lasts about an  hour and cost 60 000 pesos. When giving the address, specify that it is “en el Barrio Manila” en el Poblado.

Bus + metro: the cheap and convenient solution:

Buses for th city depart regularly from the airport. The ride cost 9 000 pesos. Ask to exit in the center, at the subway station called Parque Berrio. The driver will tell you when you there.

Then take the subway, direction La Estrella, to the station Poblado. You are two minutes walk away from the hostel.

Walk form the metro station Poblado:

Exiting the station, take the walkway on your right and then go straight ahead to Calle 10. Follow up avenue on 200 meters to reach the supermarket EXITO. Take the street in front of the entrance, on the other side, then the second street on your right. At the end of the block, turn left. You’re there. Bienvenidos!

From the North Bus Station (Terminal del Norte)

A walkway leads from the terminal at the subway station Caribe. Take the direction La Estrella and exit at the station Poblado.

From the South Bus Station (Terminal del Sur)

The easiest way is to take a taxi.  The  rides costs about 5 000 pesos. The bravest can also come by foot, passing by the subway station Poblado which is a few minutes walk away. The stroll is no fun though.
