Great place! The breakfast is really good and served by the nicest ladies, dinner is also excellent for about $6/7 per person. The 4 man dorm we stayed in was great and had a great hot shower. Surrounding area is beautiful and this is a good place to relax for a few days.

Honestly, just book it already. The views are amazing, the atmosphere is one of a kind, the breakfasts are fantastic and the optional dinners (13,000-17,000COP per person) are a great way to meet fellow travellers and are delicious. Of all the hostels we've stayed at, we've not come across anything quite like La Serrana. It is about a 20-30 minute walk from town but the Jeeps will take you there for 6000COP. Next time we are in Colombia, we will be going back.

La Serrana was a great overall experience. It's a 15-20 minute walk out of Salento itself, but it is located in such a beautiful place that makes up for it. The jeep taxis will drive you either way for just 6000 pesos. Atmosphere at the hostal is wonderful. Breakfast is very good, and so is dinner if you want to pay a little extra for that. The campfire is also very enjoyable. I will recommend this to everyone I know. It is just a great experience.

Wonderful hostel in a fairytale setting with rolling hills all around, you really feel like you are on a farm. The private room was really cosy and with a view of the garden and surrounding countryside. The family meals in the restaurant (beautifully decorated with hanging wine bottles) were perfect in the evening, and the atmosphere relaxing and sociable. hammocks, campfire, and yoga classes make it really easy to enjoy the outdoors whilst in the hostel. Our for avourite in South America.

20 minutes out of town but perfect location with amazing views. Lovely communal areas which felt luxurious compared to other hostels. Almost perfect place - stay here! The only weird thing was they gave private rooms a key to the shared bathroom so anyone could walk in even when you locked yourself in the bathroom. But this didn't turn out to be too much of a problem.

Hostel has great views of the surrounding rolling hills (which were very Green and verdant). The dinner option everyday is awesome. The staff is very helpful, polite (which seems to be a trait of people of this área, everyone is polite. Place is 20 mins walk from the city center. Its alsmost always full of gringos (which may or may not be what you want)

This place is absolutely fantastic. The setting is beautiful, and between the nightly campfire and communal meals the social atmosphere is second to none.

Great relaxing hostel. Nice to sit around the campfire at night after the delish dinner they serve during the week. No complaints.

An amazing place to relax and enjoy the beautiful nature. The staff is super friendly and the place got a very pleasant vibe. The food, that is locally and organically grown, is outstanding. I could have stayed at la Serrana for many, many weeks.

Great location if you want to stay outside of town in countryside. Friendly, helpful staff. Breakfast which is included in price could be bigger. The onsite shop is very limited, so you need to shop in town if you want to cook...kitchen facilities very good and clean. There is a communal dinner available for 13K if you don't want to cook.

Lovely views from this hostel, but it is a walk from town - worth it though. Great location and nice communal dinner option as well.

Excellent place to stay! It's about a 20 minute walk from the center of Salento, or a 10 minute Jeep taxi ride. The food served there is great. It's a very comfortable place to hang out and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

Wonderful spot. Great retreat, views, and atmosphere. Our only complaint was that our room at las camellias smelled a bit moldy.

Really nice hostel. 20 mins walk out of town. Great group dinners. By far the best meals I had in Colombia (in fact they were the only good meals I had during my 4 weeks in Colombia).

About a 10 to 15 mins walk outside of Salento but it feels more like a stay in a nice hacienda than a hostel. Good beds and lots of warm water. Only some of the kitchen equipment might be in need of replacement.

Located only a few minutes drive out of the centre of town, or a 20 minute walk. Close to the coffee farms, and has an amazing view of the countryside. The rooms are clean, spacious and homely, and the breakfast is delicious! If you're looking for a place to relax, sit by the fire by night and take in an amazing sunset-this is your place!
