Super charming hostel with great hang-out facilities and nice hammocks :) clean rooms and nice beds! Only downside was a really strict check-in time, the place being a little out of the town and the staff giving wrong information on busses! I would stay there again :)

A calm and relaxing hostell in the beautiful city of Salento. Stayed here 4 nights. Only thing that shouldn't be allowed here or in any hostell is to allow couples to share dormbeds. We had 2 couples at the same time in a 10 bed dorm

We loved staying at La Floresta. The staff were so friendly, the place was lovely especially the views and the hammocks! Our Room was clean and comfortable and we had a great stay. Would loved to have stayed longer! Highly recommended - it's great!

Good location, nice staff and big social area with lots of hammocks. Very clean. 2 kictchens, but Kitchen utensils were dirty and pans had no handles.

A lovely place to stay. It's a short distance, over the bridge, from the main square which makes it accessible to all yor transport needs and yet relaxing and quiet.

The hostel was located away from the main center of town, which meant that it was very quiet and peaceful. The main center of town was only a short walk away. The back area had nice hammocks available for guests. The thing that really pushed this place over the top was the friendliness of the staff. We stayed one night but then had to move because of availability issues. The other place had terrible internet and I could not connect and La Floresta graciously allowed me to use their internet!

The hostel is very nice and clean and the staff is lovely, providing all the information about the excursions around.. It´s only 5 min walk from the center, I find it better that is not in downtown, since the city was packed due to national holiday, so staying a bit outside from the crowd was nice...

The staff was extremely nice and accommodating. They don't speak a ton of English but if you can hold a basic conversation in Spanish and show interest in speaking with them, they are truly the best. The private room for 2 was clean and comfortable with a fantastic view out the window, and was a great deal for the price. They had a ton of suggestions for restaurants, tours, buses, etc. I don't have one complaint; it was super clean. Everything was excellent.

We had a double room with ensuite. Simple but clean and good value for money. Not from the centre. Staff were very helpful- overall a good stay!

Loved this hostel! We ended up staying an extra night and although we had to change rooms, the staff did everything in their power to make sure we were comfortable. The hostel has all the facilities you might need, including renting out bikes for touring the lovely countryside (make sure to get there early cause they only have so many!) Amazing coffee in the morning, and super cheap and quick laundry service. The staff were truly the standout, some of the loveliest we encountered so far in SA!

Private double room was a bargain and well worth it. Hostel is out of town but only a 5 minute walk so don't let that put you off. Hot showers were great.

The place is filthy. We have been forced to eat out EVERY meal due to mould infested kitchen and lack of utensils/plates etc. Pots and pans left on kitchen floor in cupboard, it stinks! We and others complained which led to the fridge being cleaned, but mouldy food and fruit flies are still rife. Free tea and coffee all gone by 9.30 even tho it's available all morning. Beds okay, a little worn. Outside area nice, bathroom hot water intermittent. Would not recommend.

First of all, loved the little town in which this hostel is located. However, I did not enjoy my stay here. Wifi continually stopped working late at night, as did the hot water. Also, the showers didn't have heads so the force was like a fire hose. The staff was kind but these issues were too large to overlook.

Nice place with working wifi and nice location Things to improve: - showers - hot water was an issue, it didn't work when everyone was showering. Unfortunately this is a hostel - wifi failed a few times - kitchen : there are 2 but only one works so it's crowded - cleanliness : kitchen bin not regularly emptied so was filthy - coffee tour to don elias as recommended by hostel was mediocre. Mainly due to the English tour guide's attitude
