This was hands down the best hostel we've ever stayed in! Super clean and serene with beautiful views from every angle. The private room we booked was spacious and well-appointed with a large bed and TV. It must be noted that the private rooms are ~10 minute walk from the main building. The atmosphere is nice but not much to do at night except the bonfire. The hostel staff are amazing and helped us with so much. Unfortunately though, the front desk closes early. Mucho mucho gusto overall!

This hostel is one of my favourites so far. It's a good 20 minutes walk from Solento but that just adds to its charm and atmosphere. The last jeep leaves town for the hostel at 9pm so it's a really sociable hostel in the evening and great place to make friends. Great family dinners. Great daily evening bonfire. Don't be put off by the location. The views are spectacular and the lightening from surrounding areas light up the sky at night. Give yourself plenty of time here.

Great location out in the hills. 20minute walk to town. Chill vibe, good breakfast. The staff were all lovely, always asked how you were in Spanish. One of the best hostels I've stayed in.

What a place. The views are incredible, the staff are so friendly and the food is good. It's a must visit for colombia, perfect for a break after a city stint. It was recommended to me by multiple people and it's easy to see why.

Bit of a walk outside of town but was a nice retreat. Communal dinners are fantastic! The free breakfast was a great bonus.

Came here really looking forward to relaxing and detoxing after a few weeks in Medellin. Stay here if you're in Salento. That's all there is to it. If that wasn't convincing enough, continue reading: The friendly and helpful staff, the chill vibes, the view, the breakfast, the delicious, family style dinners, the bonfires, the information they give you on Valle de Cocora, backcountry horse-riding or coffee plantation tours ... La Serrana has it all. A++

La Serrana is a lovely hostel in a beautiful location. The staff were incredibly helpful and the lovely breakfast ladies had a smile for everyone. And what a breakfast! The only downside is that you are quite a long way from town and if you are there at the weekend, as I was, there are no meals on site, which is a bit of a pain. I also suggest being very wary about horse riding, even though the hostel claims to use the best guides, the horses are still severely overworked.

You won't be disappointed if you stay here. Killer views all around, clean and comfy rooms, good vibes. Breakfast was delicious with a grand cup of strong coffee, ask for a refill and you will be rewarded. The walk into town was very pretty but got longer and longer as we did it. I wish they let us bring outside alcohol into the hostel...oh wait we did it anyways. Make sure to play a game of tejo before leaving Salento, but stick to the gringo lane and don't make eye contact with any locals.

Love our stay- no negatives except that it's so popular we struggled to book extra nights as we wanted to extend our stay at this amazing hostel.

It was a wonderful stay. Beds are comfortable, facilities are very cozy and food is just amazing (it's so sad that dinner is only from mondays to fridays) and the staff is very very nice. My only complain is about the lack of hot water in the night, but is just a little thing compared with the beauty of this place. I recommend it a lot for those that want to be in the middle of the beautiful landscape of Salento and close enough to the city center.

This is a great place to finish off a trip around Colombia. Great staff that were always very helpful and most of all a beautiful location to just chill out and be in lovely surroundings.

This hostel is really nice and relaxed. The views are amazing and the free breakfast is definitely the best I've had in any hostel. The evenings meals are also great. The wifi isn't the best and the TV doesn't work well but it didn't matter too much. Definitely great that the 10 bed dorm has two bathrooms and the showers are warm. The lockers are also really big so you can put a whole bag in. Just a really nice relaxed hostel, would stay here again.

The shower in the shared bathroom in the private room area does not have cold water. Also the private rooms are not so private when you can hear all the conversations through the walls

The location is stunning but be aware that although the walk from Salento is lovely a couple of round trips to and from town each day will rack up 6kms of walking! That said the views are incredible and by being out of town the whole place has a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere that makes it feel more like a retreat than a hostel. Didn´t stay for dinner but the breakfasts in the morning were great and the communal dining room is brilliant.

One of the best hostel i've been in my life. The view from the hostel is beautiful. It's the perfect place to relax and enjoy nature. The hostel is located only 15 minutes from salento (the road is safe). I would recommand this hostel to everybody.

We stayed in a tent that had a comfortable bed and decking outside with views of their beautiful gardens and an amazing landscape. Our tent had no lock or security but the place feels safe. The showers are great (hot) and a tasty breakfast is included in the price you pay. You can sign up for dinner with all the guests but the meals are international not Colombian food. The place is clean and 'perfect' but we found the service impersonal with lots of rules so we preferred Yambalombia.

Heaven on Earth! The hostel itself is beautiful and the views of rolling hills and mountains is unparalleled. The included breakfast is tasty and you have options so you don't have to get the same thing every day. Although dinner is extra I strongly recommend it. The servings are large and you get your money's worth. About a 20 minute walk on a dirt road from the city center but I definitely didn't mind.
