I enjoyed my stay here in beautiful building in lovely surroundings but the hostel had a few short comings. our room wasn't cleaned once in four days, we booked a 4 bed dorm for 4 people but we're made to pay extra to guarantee we were in the same room with a key. it's a 15 minute walk to the town and a store. each night we were told to go to bed at 11 by the security guard. the breakfast and dinner was very good.
Amazing location in beautiful Salento. If youre coming to this region La Serrana is exactly what you want! The views are unbeatable, clean facilities, great breakfast, and it was full of interesting people to chat with. Felt like I was staying in a private ranch house, had awesome decor and atmosphere. Yes it's about a 20 min walk from town but the road itself is beautiful and the place is usually full so there were always people to walk with (or share a jeep with if you want to split for 6 mil)
Excellent hostel, with an amazing breakfast and good accommodations. Just 20 minutes waking from the main square of Salento, looks like an small farm in the middle of the mountains.
Located on a beautiful finca outside of town with an amazing view, you can't beat this hostel for its facilities (breakfast/dinner house, lots of common space, bonfire, camping area), friendly and helpful staff, and overall atmosphere. So much character to this place. Probably the best hostel that I've ever been in, only wish I could have stayed longer!
Nice hostel in lovely surroundings. All members of staff super friendly and very pleasant. Campfire in the evenings! Option to buy dinner too. Is a bit of a walk from town but we didn't mind. hostel is maybe a little too big making it more difficult to meet other people. But would defo recommend
great helpful stuff. Met a lot of cool people. big kitchen, clean facilities. The family style dinner was great(super tasty and had vegei opption). A bit far from the main plaza (15 minutes walk or6,000 pesos for a taxi). One of the best hostels I've stayed in!
Make sure that you call them after making a booking to confirm that you actually got the room you requested.
A great hostel that's out of town with amazing views of the surrounding tropical mountains. A good breakfast - plenty of fruit, good coffee. Beds are a little hard and I had no locker in the room. Well worth the walk to and from town.
Without a doubt the best hostel I've ever been to
Ahh staying in that lovely place is a must. I was hesitating because of the comments about the location but it's just 15 minute walk. The breakfast was great. The view was amazing. The camp fire after dinner was perfect for meeting people. Highly recommended.
Lovely hostel in a beautiful place, facing the mountains and outside town. Althought I made a mistake in the date of my reservation and the dorms were full, they found a place for us and made our stay a great moment. Thanks for everything.

Very nice hostel. 20 min walk from town but the walk is beautiful and so is the landscape around the hostel. Nice, big breakfast but the beds were a bit hard.
Ive stayed in La Serana for a week, it was amazing! Great food everynight and also breakfast (loved the pancakes!). The view is nice too. I slept in a tent which i found way too cold during the night, but the dormitories were fine. If you go to Salento this is defenitely the best option to stay.
Great space in a beautiful location outside the city centre. Very backpacker friendly with lots of outdoor activities to do and amazing food. Would love to come back!

Bathrooms barely cleaned during my four nights here. The floors looked like they were covered in filth.
La Serrana is a gem. The location, staff, and available activities are all top notch -- a really great 3 night day stay in a beautiful, semi-rural area. We hiked, rode horses, visited a coffee farm, etc. The staff was INCREDIBLY helpful. A special thanks to the wonderful women in the kitchen, who accommodated my dairy allergy and made scrumptious breakfasts and dinners. We liked staying in Las Camelias: rooms a 2 min. walk from main location which afford more privacy. Simple but decently clean.
La Serrena is located just out of Salento. The scenery is beautiful but next time I would like to stay in town. The breakfast is delicious and every dorm has its own bathroom. They have a nice common room and every night there is a bonfire. Overall I like staying at La Serrena!
The whole experience was perfect, from the great location to the staff, to the friends we made, to the evening dinners. Value is exceptional, location is unparalleled, I could go on forever. Just wish I had more time to spend at La Serrana! If you stay here you will most certainly be back.
A great hostel in an awesome location! Positive: - The breakfast and the optional dinner during the week (Mon-Fri) are amazing! - We had a free concert one night next to a camp fire...perfect! - Amazing view over the landscape! Negative: - When we arrived we were told to stay at another house 400 meter away. - The Wi-Fi did not work there - The guy at the reception was not helpful and always responded to questions: "Sorry, that is not possible"...without even trying!
