I loved La Serrana. Great atmosphere and if you have read other reviews of the vistas around the property, theyre stunning. The only thing I would say is that the location is about a 20 minute walk from town, so if you want to stay closer to central Salento, this is not your place. Other than that, Le Serrana is great.
10 minute walk from small town, $3 taxi ride, great campfire at night, great climate, great $6 meal every night, perfect get away from big city , horse back ride is challenging and beautiful and 30 minute shuttle ride from Armenia is scenic.
Beautiful location, really nice group dinner on week nights, social and comfy hostel. Had nice hot shower too, slight downside dorm I was staying in was a bit noisy as it was near the kitchen/communal area.
Good place to stay. Very peaceful. Better cleaning needed, particularly the kitchen.
Extended my stay here. Wonderful staff, perfect for lounging in hammocks, reading, walks. Breakfast is included & the best. You pay a small price if you want other items such as pancakes, waffles & its absolutely worth it. Town 20 minutes walk very easy. Perfect hostel is take it easy, & enjoy nature. Bring a sweater as it can get cold at night in January, & it will rain part of the day. That's normal & doesn't take away from the place. I look forward to my next visit
Hard to sleep; rooms in main bldg are right next to large common areas, was v. loud at night. Checked out a night early because of that. The nearest place to buy food (e.g. cookies, not a restaurant) is about 10min away, which is not a problem until you need to walk there in a torrential downpour, in the evening, on a path parts of which are completely unlit. Although HW says this hostel has a "mini-supermarket", all it is is a fridge with beverages; no food for purchase. Site is pretty though.
This is one of our new "favorites" in the places-to-stay arena. We were in Room 1 @ Las Camelias, and it was outstanding. The sweeping vistas from the terrace are breathtaking, and having a full kitchen and a cozy living room with a wood-burning fireplace were extremely nice added touches. Will definitely stay there again upon a return visit. The breakfasts are tasty and the staff are warm, welcoming, and ultra-gracious. Top-Notch, all the way around.
Lovely location. Very nice staff. Average on everything else. I stayed 2 nights and had to miss the national park, so stay 3 nights. I think this is the best place to stay in Solento.
feels like home and you can meet a lot of other people
A one mile walk outside of town and cabs stop running at 9:00 pm. The kitchen and common areas were great and they had a tv room with lots of movies. The included breakfast was good. The shared bathrooms for the private rooms could have been more clean.
I stayed four nights here and could have stayed longer! Great atmosphere and location. The breakfasts were good and if you want dinner, its amazing! They help with all the activities and things to do around Salento. I would recommend staying here.
An amazing place to stay and chill out. So many lovely people, great included breakfast and free yoga twice a day! Really good value for money. Loved my stay here, would highly recommend.
well, everything was perfect! the panoramic - almost 360 degree - view over the valleys are just beautifull even the weather was not that good that time, dinners were very good, the walk to the hostel is safe and really nice, what I only missed was a covered hammock area to enjoy the views even the weather is bad...
A little corner of paradize in Salento with breathtaking iews, delicious restaurant, cosy atmosphere, confortable beds and hot water. There are lockers, two bathrooms for 8 pople in the big dorm, a camp fire, free yoga lessons, movies and anything you might want. The staff is helpful. The Internet is a bit weak, but you'll probably want to disconnect in this kind of place. It's a bit out of a center but the walk is nice or a quick jeep ride will do the trick. Enjoy
This is the perfect hostel for when you want to chill out in beautiful surroundings and just talk to good people late into the evening. Not a party hostel although some quiet beers and wine are enjoyed. The 360 degree mountain views, free breakfasts and excellent coffee are the highlights. Note there are no computers to use there but wifi is widely available.

I love this hostel!!! It is such a wonderful place to stay;) just a short walk into town. A great breakfast, beautiful murals, A lovely big friendly dog;) I met heaps of cool people when I stayed here! I would highly recommend this property!
Great place to stay with amazing views of the hills around Salento
Amazing hostel! Incredible food, lovely setup, so relaxing and really helpful staff!! Highly recommended.
Really nice peaceful place, clean facilities and nice food in the restaurant. As mentioned wifi is in dire need of a fix. Don't plan on any heavy internetting. Hot water is very hot but manually turned on by staff. Town plaza is a 20 min walk or 6,000 COP jeep taxi. Nice big common area and kitchen. Good for a few days relaxation
