good atmosphere at this hostel . Friendly staff. Best breakfast I had so far. I had a private room and the bed was not great. I could feel the spiral of the bed through the mattress and slept on top of an extra blanket to make it softer.
Reminded us so much of home. So similar to the hills in Byron bay it was so lovely. The family dinner was fun and a great way to meet people. Really quiet and a lovely break after bogota!
If you're looking to get out of Salento but still be really close to town then you can't go wrong with La Serrana. What a lovely property and really calm, relaxing environment. The beds were comfortable and the price very reasonable.
#nocomplaints. It was a highlight of my month in Colombia.
Beautiful location , friendly staff but everything seemed quite 'salesy' which was a turn off.
Do not let the litte walk scare you: La Serra is the place to be in Salento. Superb hostel.
Our stay at La Serrana was like staying at a comfortable farm. The beds are probably the most comfortable I've come across in South America and the hostel is really clean. The free breakfast is great and dinner during the week is delicious and big portions for approx 14 mil. This hostel is a great place to chill out and staff are super helpful!
Fantastic hostel! Beautiful location with amazing views. We stayed in the glamping tent and it was really nice and the camping bathrooms were modern and clean. The meals were great value and really tasty and the campfires at night were really nice too. The hostel was really well organised and one of the best places I have ever stayed in. Only one negative was the water supply was a bit temperamental, so occasionally not possible to shower but I think this was out of the hostels control.
Very nice Hostel! Really recommend staying at La Serrana!
We stayed longer than we were planning as we enjoyed it so much. Really relaxing and a great, sociable evening meal.
We really enjoyed our time at La Serrana. We had a private room, with one of the most comfortable beds of our trip to date. The staff were friendly and went out of their way to assist us in any questions/requests that we had. The communal dinners are fantastic and a great way to meet fellow travellers as well as their evening bonfires. The farm has amazing views of the surrounding area. We used the camping toilets/showers as were nicer than the bathroom dedicated to the private rooms.
Amazing place. Views, staff, advises, food, drinks... Everything's perfect.
One of the best hostels ever. Very cozy and comfortable atmosphere. The BEST breakfast. Everything was perfect. I would live there. It's amazing.
Great staff who spoke perfect English with good knowledge of the area! good location, and atmosphere. Hostel offers plenty of activities both at night and during the day! Great place to meet people so would recommend for those travelling alone!
La Serrana is amazing! Highly recommended. The location is perfect if you're looking to soak up the scenery and relax. They also have delicious dinners every night (a little pricey) but delicious. Also have group bonfires, which is a great way to meet people. It is a little bit of a walk from the main town, but there are jeeps that take you to and from for about 2000 pesos. Stay at La Serrana. You will not regret it.
The staff are fantastic, the place is beautiful (even the 20min walk to town is pretty), it's very clean, breakfast is good and extra food options are delicious, and it's very easy to meet people. The wifi/Internet was hopeless (and I was there for a week), poor water pressure made morning showers difficult, and because the rooms all come directly off the common area, it's generally quite loud (with conversation, not music). It is a very well run hostel, and would definitely come back.
I cannot fault this hostel. It's in a beautiful setting. It has a wonderful social atmosphere with the family dinners and nightly bonfire. Comfortable beds and great breakfast. The staff are super helpful and give great advice regarding activities and onward travel. I wish I could have stayed longer
Great hostel that is a 15min walk away from salento. Great place to relax during traveling. Clean, nice beds, good lockers, breakfast is good. Staff are very nice and accommodating.
Best hostel ever! Go there! You will get amazed by the almost 360 degress view! You fell like you are waking up in the middle of the mountains and valleys of Salento. The hostel itself is an old finca (farm) with an extra building for rooms and dinners, tents, outdoor fireplace etc. All you need and more! There is dinner every night you just have to sign up and it only cost 14000 pesos. It so cozy and a good way to meet other travellers. I had the best time there meeting great people.
highly recommend. only thing to note would be the last taxi from town is at 10 pm. however the walk is only 20 minutes.
