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!

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.
We met al lot of nice people in the hostel. The hostel has a perfect location. Just 10 minutes walk to the amazing city centre. The cleaned a lot, what was very nice. Just the kitchen gear was very poor an hard to cook with.
Good hostel close to the centre of Salento (5 mins walk). Has a kitchen for guests to use and showers are great!
Very nice hostel. Seems to be pretty new. Lacked any activities in the evening. Rooms were clean. Showers were warm. Close to town. Staff friendly. Wifi worked well.
Spacious private room, clean, towels included, staff very helpful and two kitchens! Less than 10 minutes to main plaza! Would highly recommend!
Great place to stay! It is a little outside of town and very quiet. You can chill in their hammocks outside or on the little terrace. The staff is super friendly and happy to help any time. Their mountain bikes are top quality and amazing for a ride around (be careful, the end of the tour is quite challenging ;-). I had to leave a day early and they cancelled my last night without charge which was amazing. Oh and last but not least, it is super clean. They seem to be cleaning all the time =)
Wonderful place with fantastic and happy staff. Hot showers and only a short walk to he main square. Very relaxing environment. Their bikes are excellent quality and for a reasonable price. Their beds were comfortable and remade every day. A nice touch. Kitchen was also adequate for cooking but if others are cooking also you may need to wait as it gets cramped. Nothing to really worry about though. I'd definitely book here again for my next visit to Salento (whenever that might be).
Great hostel in Salento, 5 min walk from the main plaza. Clean rooms, comfortable beds and good facilities. The kitchen was quite messy but that happens when guests do not clean up after them selves. Would definitely stay here again.
A really nice little hostel in a great town! Good location for nipping down the road to the coffee farms. The only problem is that in our room, you seemed to be able to hear everything that was going on in the hostel! Where is all this noise coming from?! Really liked it though and the staff were friendly.
The staff was really friendly. You get free coffee every morning, which is very nice. To get to he hostel you need to walk little bit, but just a few blocks. There's a lot of "hamacas" where you can rest. The showers are good and in general is good hostel where you can stay and enjoy .
Good wifi, chill vibe easy to meet others and really nice staff
Overall a great hostel for a good price. The staff is friendly and understanding. When my plans changed last minute and had to cancel part of my reservation, they did not charge me a cancellation fee, and even let me store my bags there for a few days. A very homey atmosphere and great place to meet other travelers. The one thing I think could be improved upon though is the kitchen. Because of the set-up it is very difficult for multiple people to try to cook at the same time.
This is a wonderful hostel! They offer many different activities, the staff is super helpful, and the hostel really has a good vibe to it. I would defined stay her again.
Very nice hostel. We stayed in a double and then the 8 bed dorm - both were very comfortable and clean. Great hot showers. Good kitchen. Loads of hammocks
We arrived and were double booked so they upgraded us to a double room for the same price!
The staff at La Floresta were great. Really helpful with booking trips or just pointing you in the right direction. The hostel itself was a bit dated but our room and bathroom were very clean. The kitchen was a bit disappointing - very small and quite messy/dirty, but that was maybe just due to the large number of people who seemed to be using it. The hostel has a nice garden and free coffee and was generally quite sociable. It's just on the edge of town which is nice too.
When taking a shower the hot water is VERY hot so just be careful - not a negative - just an observation.
