Great place, good vibes and good volanteers. A little bit far from the center of the city but amazing view.

Location is out of town, maybe a twenty minute walk but there are jeeps all day. We loved it but its worth noting. The staff and volunteers were great and it is so beautiful.

This is a truly special little place. We booked on a recommendation and were initially upset at how far it was away from the plaza (20 min walk, 5/7 minute jeep) and the lack of wifi, but it was an absolute pleasure to spend some time away from the hustle and bustle of 'hostel life'. It's clean, very affordable, the staff were so friendly and the horse likes to join you for breakfast overlooking a breathtaking view. Couldn't recommend it enough. Thank you Gabriel and the team.

The hostel is about a 2km walk from the main town. The walk is mostly along a gravel road and is pleasant. Don't walk the road alone- a woman was mugged and threatened with a machete. Apparently this is extremely rare but what's the point in taking chances? Well run hostel, great staff and friendly dogs. I felt at home there. Dorm room light and clean. No wifi but it is sold as an eco hostel.

MA-RA-VI-LLO-SO. Una experiencia genial en Yambolombia, una atmósfera genial, super agradable con muy buena gente. Muy cómodas camas y habitaciones, la cocina pequeña pero útil pero hay que organizarse para poder cocinar todos. Gabriel el dueño es muy buena persona y ayuda en todo lo que está en su mano. Un poco alejado del pueblo pero el paseo es agradable, eso sí ¡Cuidado, no intenten ir hasta el Valle del Cocora andando! Nosotros lo hicimos y dura caminata. Muy recomendable, gracias.

It was a really nice hostel, only the way was quite Long and Needs to be considered (as there is hardly any connection you might Need to wait either for a Willy to pass by or you walk around 20-25 min) to the "City Center"

Yambolombia is completely worth the walk from Salento! Being a bit out of town makes it a magical place, the owner Gabriel is friendly and helpful and the lady who makes you breakfast is so smiling! Very quiet at night, but there is a nice kitchen so if you find the right people it is nice to have dinner together and spend the night chilling in a hostel that it is more like a house. One of the best hot waters we had in Colombia so far. Absolutely recommended!

Very peaceful hostel with friendly staff and a great owner Gabriel. There were two lovely dogs (Rasta and Jhoint) and a beautiful horse, Campanita :) It takes 20-25 minutes to walk to the center but the road offers great scenary, or you can take a jeep too. I was offered to ride a horse once i was on my way to the center, you never know :) Breakfast is not included but a decent kitchen is available. Overall, a place to relax and enjoy the nature, highly recommended.

One of the best hostel I've ever been ! Gabriel doesn't host you like a guest in a hostel but like family in his house ! Perfect atmosphere, the place set-up help the travellers to know each other and build up friendships. Volunteers and staff were super cool !If you're the kind of traveller willing to go out of beaten tracks, forget the center of Salento and go to Yambolombia !!

It feels like a bit further than 2km outside of town, especially for the uphill slog back into Salento, but the off-path location makes it a fantastic place to stay. If you like waking up in the morning and not hearing city noises, this is definitely a good choice. If you don't like dogs, on the other hand, it's a terrible choice; the three resident canines are very protective of the front gate, and greet anyone coming in loudly and exuberantly, but are nice enough once they're introduced. =)
