Hostel has great views of the surrounding rolling hills (which were very Green and verdant). The dinner option everyday is awesome. The staff is very helpful, polite (which seems to be a trait of people of this área, everyone is polite. Place is 20 mins walk from the city center. Its alsmost always full of gringos (which may or may not be what you want)
This place is absolutely fantastic. The setting is beautiful, and between the nightly campfire and communal meals the social atmosphere is second to none.
Great relaxing hostel. Nice to sit around the campfire at night after the delish dinner they serve during the week. No complaints.
An amazing place to relax and enjoy the beautiful nature. The staff is super friendly and the place got a very pleasant vibe. The food, that is locally and organically grown, is outstanding. I could have stayed at la Serrana for many, many weeks.
Great location if you want to stay outside of town in countryside. Friendly, helpful staff. Breakfast which is included in price could be bigger. The onsite shop is very limited, so you need to shop in town if you want to cook...kitchen facilities very good and clean. There is a communal dinner available for 13K if you don't want to cook.
Lovely views from this hostel, but it is a walk from town - worth it though. Great location and nice communal dinner option as well.
It's located a bit outside of salento but u get the most beautiful view on the mountains . The atmosphere is incredible and the hostel offers everything u could expect from a hostel !:) especially the daily dinners and campfires are great !!!
Excellent place to stay! It's about a 20 minute walk from the center of Salento, or a 10 minute Jeep taxi ride. The food served there is great. It's a very comfortable place to hang out and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
Good place with open fire everyday and relaxed atmosphere, homemade and healthy food, Feels like home and makes it easy to get in touch with people.

Wonderful spot. Great retreat, views, and atmosphere. Our only complaint was that our room at las camellias smelled a bit moldy.
Really nice hostel. 20 mins walk out of town. Great group dinners. By far the best meals I had in Colombia (in fact they were the only good meals I had during my 4 weeks in Colombia).
About a 10 to 15 mins walk outside of Salento but it feels more like a stay in a nice hacienda than a hostel. Good beds and lots of warm water. Only some of the kitchen equipment might be in need of replacement.

Located only a few minutes drive out of the centre of town, or a 20 minute walk. Close to the coffee farms, and has an amazing view of the countryside. The rooms are clean, spacious and homely, and the breakfast is delicious! If you're looking for a place to relax, sit by the fire by night and take in an amazing sunset-this is your place!
Amazing hostel 20mins walk from salento main square , chilled environment as its basically on a farm awesome views around the hills ,good dinners most nights , breakfast ok with option to pay for more (french toast recommended). Staff are knowledgable and most speak both spanish and english, campfire every night at 8pm, 3 cruisy dogs live on the property. Great place to stay I will be back.
We had a blast at La Serrana, definitely worth the 20min walk outside of town and you can't beat the view. It's a great place to meet other people, large communal areas and bonfires every night. Plus there is a delicious vegetarian food truck on-site. Come prepared with your Spanish, you may only get desk staff who speak Spanish, but that is to be expected in Colombia. We were sad to leave La Serrana.
Brilliant hostel, lovely location and very chilled environment. Breakfast was good and evening meal can also be highly recommended. Can't really fault it!
I loved this hostel for it's location and the food. The staff were also very helpful. The hostel looks out over stunning valleys and surrounding mountains and is a 15-20 minute walk into town. Dinner was offered each night at an additional cost of 13,000 pesos and was the quality of a very nice restaurant. Breakfast was the best i've ever had at a hostel and if you like french toast, pay extra for the ones offered here. Amazing!!
Nice quiet location & views if that is what you are looking for. Stay ruined by one statt member, told us we could do kettlebells at 7:30am, then meet the instructor who never heard this, does not have kettlebells nor weights!! Internet is terrible & same staff member said he was "too tired" to help all 4 of us to connect & to ask tomorrow!! Answer was always "well it works on my phone". Didnt appreciate his patronising manner on many occasions...too many to write here...
La Serrana is a gorgeous hostel, more like a country house, located an easy 1.5kms walk out of town. Perched on a hill with 360 degree views of the valley, it's a serene location. The rooms are absolutely spotless and are cleaned everyday. The staff are friendly, welcoming and knowledgable. The family style dinners are delicious and good value. All in all this was a great experience and I would highly recommend it if you're after a relaxed, country style experience in a beautiful setting.
Its worth the short walk from town. The location is great and scenic and breakfast is pretty darn amazing. my only concern was i was eaten alive by fleas or bed bugs. i spent time in many hostels and backpacking during my time in colombia, this was my first encounter. there are dogs on the premise, not a big deal, but a few of us got bitten. if that was cleaned up...this place would be amazing. otherwise, its a great choice if you can get past that part.
