SUCH a good hostel. So chilled, a little bit out of the way but that makes it all the more better, excellent staff, and great facilities. Beds are made every day, breakfast is free with 2 cups of local coffee included. Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else if I came back. Def recommend.

Beautiful hostel, one of my favourites :) Very homey and warm, good tv area and comfy chairs, wifi everywhere - even in the gardens, free popcorn, good breakfast. The atmosphere was always good and the staff really pleasant and helpful. The ONLY thing that was less than perfect was the showers were not always hot, especially later in the day, and having a cold shower after walking for hours in the rain is not ideal.

Beautiful place, outside a beautiful small city. Perfect for relaxing, hikes and coffee!

Very good hostel. We stayed in the detached building away from the main one. It was great and quiet. Only issue is that the hostel is a good 15-20 min walk to the town but is manageable. the staff was nice and helpful. The communal dinners are definitively worth it.

Was a great hostel, bit of a walk out of town but that actually creates a great vibe at the hostel. They do a dinner every night with some great food and everyone sits in the room so get in early. The only problem would be that the beds are hard and there is a rooster who likes to let you know when he's up in the morning. But def worth a stay!

While La Serrana might be a bit of a walk from city center, the facilities, staff, food and scenery make up for it. The included breakfast was terrific (2 options), WiFi was consistent and stable, water pressure was constant although hot water was lacking during peak hours. Beds are very firm and pillows somewhat lumpy. Friendly and knowledgeable staff will help with all Salento needs and the beautiful scenery surrounding the hostel is breathtaking. Enjoyed my stay and would highly recommend.

Wonderful place to stay in Salento. Would love to have spent more time here. Relaxing vibe and great people. The food on offer is superb and cheaply priced. Excellent place.

Great hacienda experience with spectacular window views overlooking the emerald green hills. Staff were very helpful and cooked up a great breakfast, beds were very comfortable with basic amenities. It felt like an oasis of calm and serenity and only 15 min walk to main plaza and close proximity to visit coffee farms.

An incredibly beautiful place with great atmosphere and people. Quite a walk from town, but you'll get a relaxing hacienda experience in return AND there is free popcorn whenever you like- both thumbs up!

This place is located in the heart of the nature. It has such a view that I was impressed to see it every morning when I wake up. It is a very chill place where people enjoy the nature in the morning and have a quiet evening. It is a perfect place to relax after partying in Cali or anywhere in Colombia. Must see! I couldn't recommend this place more! It was definitely one of the highlights of my two months Colombia trip.

Epic place to chillout, close to town (a 5 min jeep ride or 20min walk), great facilities, nice TV area, beautiful views, perfect location for tours (coffee, cocora etc), lovely staff, clean rooms and bathrooms, fun to chill by the fire each night, great home cooked meals

Serious misrepresentation by HostelWorld website. We had booked what we thought was a private room, but La Serrana showed us to a private tent. Now, admittedly, the tent was very nice, but it was quite a distance from a shared bathroom, especially if there was terrential rain. After one night we were switched to a private room, without fuss, in friendly fashion. But please HW, check your room descriptions against what La Serrana actually offer. They DO NOT MATCH and La Serrana were shocked too.

got horribly sick when staying here. Hit me the morning I was checking out. Only ate at the hostel so outside food can not be blamed. Ass pissing for 3 days. Not fun on 8 hour bus back to bogota. Ended up in hospital on a drip and heavy antibiotics. First time sick in 6 month trip of South America. Staff filling up water jugs from tap could also have been culprit. Totally unacceptable level of hygiene. Not only one who got sick during my stay. Avoid food and water at la serrena at all costs!!!

Very cool place, a lot of rules, but overall an amazing place to stay! The popcorn is excellent! This place books out every night!

La Serrana is a great hostel with nice staff and bonfires! Be aware that it is not in Salento, it is a 20 minute walk to the hostel from the town square, but the view you get in return is awesome. The family dinners are great and in the weekend we stayed there (when the kitchen is closed), they had Carlos with his vegetarian truck to provide for really awesome food. Only comment is that one toilet (combined with shower) for the private rooms in the morning isn't much.

If you are planning to stay in salento, you should defenitely go to la serrana! Is just outside to town, but close enough to walk into town in 15 minutes. The surroundings are beautifull. The hostel is really clean and has a good relaxing atmosphere.

This was so fa the best hostel I've stayed in during my 4 weeks travel through Colombia. Just 2 recommendations for the hostel: - the staff at the reception could be a bit more helpful when it comes to planning activities or busses - a small locker for everybody would be really helpful (room 2)
