We loved la serrana and have recommended it to anyone travelling to Salento. Friendly staff, great breakfast, comfortable beds, awesome family dinners! The walk to the centre wasn't a problem for us.
The hostel is very nice, the stuff helpfull, we had an amazing time there
Amazing location. Great set up. Clean, professionally run, plenty of bathrooms, comfy beds, good breakfast and evening meals. This is a 15 min walk outside of Salento... but the location is simply stunning. If you don't stay here then I would say your are missing out.
I couldn't connect to the wifi for the whole 5 days i spent there and had to go to town all the time to connect because there are no computers at the hostal. The hostal is outside the city so if you want to buy food or taking a bus you need to walk 25 minutes or take a taxi (3 USD). Good breakfast, nice staff, amazing view, friendly and quite, great place just to sit and relax :)
La Serrana is the best spot in Salento! Beautiful place,awesome view,nice rooms,very friendly stuff,well equiped Kitchen...and definitly worth the 20 minutes walk to town!!!i loved it!
Although it was a 20 minute walk away from the town centre, I would still rate the location as perfect, the setting was absolutely perfect. Great atmosphere with almost nightly bonfires. Very clean too. Strongly recommended as one of the best hostels I've experienced in South America.
La Serrena is an absolute beautiful place outside of Salento. It's a hacienda about 15minutes walk from the town center. Staff is really nice and helpful. Breakfast and dinners (extra $$) are excellent and the kitchen has everything needed if you like to cook your own meals. It's perfect to relax for a few days and do hikes to coffee plantations, visit Valle de Cocora or go horseback riding. From the facilities perspective, this feels like a nice resort, but for backpackers. Don't miss it!
This is by FAR the best place to stay in Zona Cafetera. They offer a host of activities, and they are located on a beautiful strip of land in the countryside. Staff was amazing as was the "homey" feel to the property! Thanks La Serrana!
A really special hostel in such a beautiful location - but it is 1.5km out of town. Very sociable thanks to the comfy lounge - proper sofas! - and the beautiful dining room with a huge table for 12 or so. The dinners are delicious and a great way to meet people. Also really enjoyed sitting around the bonfire after dinner. Have recommended this hostel to many people en route.
I loved La Serrana. Great atmosphere and if you have read other reviews of the vistas around the property, theyre stunning. The only thing I would say is that the location is about a 20 minute walk from town, so if you want to stay closer to central Salento, this is not your place. Other than that, Le Serrana is great.
10 minute walk from small town, $3 taxi ride, great campfire at night, great climate, great $6 meal every night, perfect get away from big city , horse back ride is challenging and beautiful and 30 minute shuttle ride from Armenia is scenic.
Beautiful location, really nice group dinner on week nights, social and comfy hostel. Had nice hot shower too, slight downside dorm I was staying in was a bit noisy as it was near the kitchen/communal area.
Good place to stay. Very peaceful. Better cleaning needed, particularly the kitchen.
Extended my stay here. Wonderful staff, perfect for lounging in hammocks, reading, walks. Breakfast is included & the best. You pay a small price if you want other items such as pancakes, waffles & its absolutely worth it. Town 20 minutes walk very easy. Perfect hostel is take it easy, & enjoy nature. Bring a sweater as it can get cold at night in January, & it will rain part of the day. That's normal & doesn't take away from the place. I look forward to my next visit
Hard to sleep; rooms in main bldg are right next to large common areas, was v. loud at night. Checked out a night early because of that. The nearest place to buy food (e.g. cookies, not a restaurant) is about 10min away, which is not a problem until you need to walk there in a torrential downpour, in the evening, on a path parts of which are completely unlit. Although HW says this hostel has a "mini-supermarket", all it is is a fridge with beverages; no food for purchase. Site is pretty though.
This is one of our new "favorites" in the places-to-stay arena. We were in Room 1 @ Las Camelias, and it was outstanding. The sweeping vistas from the terrace are breathtaking, and having a full kitchen and a cozy living room with a wood-burning fireplace were extremely nice added touches. Will definitely stay there again upon a return visit. The breakfasts are tasty and the staff are warm, welcoming, and ultra-gracious. Top-Notch, all the way around.
Lovely location. Very nice staff. Average on everything else. I stayed 2 nights and had to miss the national park, so stay 3 nights. I think this is the best place to stay in Solento.
feels like home and you can meet a lot of other people
A one mile walk outside of town and cabs stop running at 9:00 pm. The kitchen and common areas were great and they had a tv room with lots of movies. The included breakfast was good. The shared bathrooms for the private rooms could have been more clean.
