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
Beautiful location just a charming 20 min walk from salento. Great breakfast and the option of signing up for group dinners in the evening. Clean, warm beds, helful staff and stunning views. Great coffee tour at Sacha Mama organised from there. Only complaint would be directed at Blackie the dog and I don't think he was under anyones control!
The water was down on the day of my arrival, really!!! How good is this for a hostel? As well, the wifi is often hung up and you can't make travel plans so this needs to be resolved to travellers' satisfaction and/or more routers used and a faster speed introduced for clients. They really ought to consider providing free transportation on arrival to the hostel. Hostelworld should ensure that companies that are flagged for pushing their wifi when it doesn't work are criticized accordingly.
La Serrana is one of the nicest places we stayed. It's a twenty minute walk outside town but don't let that put you off, as it's well worth it for the views and peace of the countryside and the walk is lovely so flies by. The dinner in the dining room each evening is excellent and really good for talking to people. The staff couldn't be friendlier and there's a real sense of community here. 100% recommend it! Showers are actually hot!
The best hostel I stayed in in South America. Beautiful setting, marvelous food and a brilliant atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Very cozy hostel, felt like a home away. Good kitchen, good common area and great dinners. There was some problems with internet/wifi when I stayed there, but hopefully they fix it by now.
Beautiful place! One of my favorite hostels ever!
Pretty disappointed over all, mainly due to our "private" room. Thin walls, a door that opened by itself even when locked, right next to a broken toilet (used by the large campsite as well as the private rooms) and incredibly noisy for such a quiet location. Also, no hot water in the shower when we were there. However, I think the dorms were probably better and the restaurant meals were tasty and a great way to meet people. Also, the location was beautiful if a little far from town.
Very nice place, excellent view. Note that it's a 20min walk out of town, but you get rewarded with a star-filled sky and calm nights away from "the party".
This was my second stay at La Serrana as I fell in love the place so much the first time I had to return. Carol and Carlos are warm, friendly staff, the included brekkie and weekday dinners on offer are incredible. But the best thing of all is the serenity, being 1km out of town you really feel the peace & quiet...definitely not just another hostel, its a place to call home. Thank you La Serrana...I think I will be come back again :)
Awesome place, really chilled out. The meals in the evening are totally worth the money so yummy.
The best hostel in solento. Really good food also
Great views, mellow vibe, awesome food. No lockers in rooms but some in luggage storage room. Wifi slightly dodgy but who really cares? Would return without question.
This is an amazing hostel in a beautiful and tranquil location. It's a wee way (about 20 min walk) from town, but it's worth it for the peace and quiet as well as the amazing views. The staff are friendly and have good tips on what tours to do, and the free breakfast is great. There also group dinners in the evening that are well worth doing at least once, it's really nice food and a good place to hang out with other people at the hostel. Top marks all round.
Location is a 20 minute walk out of Salento which was fine for me as I wanted something more in the countryside but if you want somewhere nearer to town, I'd look at other options. Wi-fi is very iffy but La Serrana is probably one of my favourite hostals I've been to. The staff are lovely, it's a nice, social and relaxed hostel and the dinners they do there are amazing! Definitely would recommend La Serrana!
