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.

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!

I loved this hostel for it's location and the food. The staff were also very helpful. The hostel looks out over stunning valleys and surrounding mountains and is a 15-20 minute walk into town. Dinner was offered each night at an additional cost of 13,000 pesos and was the quality of a very nice restaurant. Breakfast was the best i've ever had at a hostel and if you like french toast, pay extra for the ones offered here. Amazing!!

Nice quiet location & views if that is what you are looking for. Stay ruined by one statt member, told us we could do kettlebells at 7:30am, then meet the instructor who never heard this, does not have kettlebells nor weights!! Internet is terrible & same staff member said he was "too tired" to help all 4 of us to connect & to ask tomorrow!! Answer was always "well it works on my phone". Didnt appreciate his patronising manner on many occasions...too many to write here...

La Serrana is a gorgeous hostel, more like a country house, located an easy 1.5kms walk out of town. Perched on a hill with 360 degree views of the valley, it's a serene location. The rooms are absolutely spotless and are cleaned everyday. The staff are friendly, welcoming and knowledgable. The family style dinners are delicious and good value. All in all this was a great experience and I would highly recommend it if you're after a relaxed, country style experience in a beautiful setting.

Its worth the short walk from town. The location is great and scenic and breakfast is pretty darn amazing. my only concern was i was eaten alive by fleas or bed bugs. i spent time in many hostels and backpacking during my time in colombia, this was my first encounter. there are dogs on the premise, not a big deal, but a few of us got bitten. if that was cleaned up...this place would be amazing. otherwise, its a great choice if you can get past that part.

Amazing! The best hostel I've stayed at. Beautiful scenery, delicious breakfast (included) and dinners (optional). Helpful staff, a nice walk to town, comfortable beds

Hostel with the most stunning view and landscape I've been to! It felt more like a holiday villa than a hostel. The house was also very lovely, also the restaurant next to it. Huge garden areas. Very nice large rooms with comfy beds, clean facilities. Everything was great, only criticism: at 9.30 they would not sell anymore beers. This is not too great as the walk into the city of Salento takes about 30 mins.

Great hostel about a 20 minute walk from the centre of town. We did the walk at night a few times with no problems. Only gripe was no TV (we wanted to watch the World Cup) but otherwise excellent hostel, would stay here again for sure.

Stunning location amongst rolling hills, farmland, and forest. Hammocks to relax in and enjoy the view. Reasonable breakfast included, and optional dinners that were delicious and a good chance to meet other guests. The town is only a 20 minute walk away (or a jeep ride if you're lazy), and there are some coffee plantations fairly close to the hostel that offer tours. We loved this hostel, really one of the best we've stayed at. Ended up extending our stay for three more nights.

We loved the place and would stay there again. The only complaint I had is that there was a pack of at least 3 dogs that were leaving outside of our room which would bark and fight at night and would keep me awake.

The location of this hostel is simply amazing. Only 15 min walking from the center of Salento and located in the mountains. English speaking staff. Great breakfast (included) nicely organized dinners. The hostel organizes all kinds of tours.

La Serrana is a beautiful hostel with an amazing view over the area. The staff was polite and helpful and gave all information needed. The included breakfast was nicer than normal with the possibility to add some extra pancakes, smoothies and other delicious stuff for a small extra fee. Their dinners is also great. Every night there is a bonfire going, you can do yoga in the morning (not included in the price) and the coffee plantations is just a small walk from the hostel. Highly recommended!
