A lovely escape away for anyone either travelling solo, in a couple or in a group! Gabrielle and the other staff, who all seem like family, made us feel very welcome and gave us advice on the coffee tours available a short walk away. We wish we could have stayed longer that's all. Remember to take groceries to cook. I didn't even think about the lak of wifi once! Thank you Gabrielle for a wonderful stay!

Had an amazing stay at Yambolombia! Gabi and the staff go out of their way to make you feel welcomed, and the location is wonderful, just a short walk out of town but worth it for the beautiful views. I was supposed to stay for three nights but stayed five. Highly recommend this place!

This place is magical! Everyone who stays here stays because they want to relax and enjoy where they are. Not having wifi proved to be an amazing thing - of course when and if you go into town there are loads of places with wifi so you're not completely disconnected if that is a concern. The morning view from the hostel is stunning. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Salento.

Loved this hostel. Very welcoming owner who made us feel at home. Very good value for money. It is a 30 minute walk on a track to town, but this make the scenery so beautiful and quiet at night, so location was great for us but others may want to be in town. Good kitchen. Walking distance to coffee farms so no need to get jeep there. No wifi, but we didn't miss it at all. Cute puppy!! Free coffee all day!!

One of my favourite hostels in almost a year away! If you're tired of being in the cities where everyone plays on their phones instead of talks then Yombolombia is for you. No wifi.. Really friendly and helpful staff and because it's set a half hour walk from town it's perfect for getting out in to the country each day. Stayed on two occasions and always loved it. Cheers Gabriel!

Yambolombia was one of the nicest hostels we have stayed in in Colombia! The owner and staff/volunteers are supernice and you immediately feel at home here. The views from the garden are stunning and you can oversee the mountains when you´re having your morning coffee or a (cheap) beer in the afternoon. They have three lovely dogs and facilities were very good, especially considering how cheap this place is. It´s a 30 minute walk or 5 minute jeep ride from the center, but definitely worth it!

The map is very misleading: it's at least 1.5 km from the edge of the village (2.5km from the bus station). Also, no internet and electricity and hot water don't always work well either.

I loved yambolombia and planned to stay 2 night but stayed 5 instead. Gabriel helps you with everything you need and they arrange some activities to hang out at night time. The hostel doesn't have wifi which makes it an amazing atmosphere and people actually socializing. The kitchen has everything you'll need. I found the location good bc it wasn't in town but obviously it depends on what you're looking for. They'll definitely take care of you here, it's super chill! Space for camping as well!

Such a quaint hostel. It's very artsy and interesting. The staff are really nice and caring. The owner made us bracelets and gave them to us at the end of our stay as gifts. Kitchen is great. Atmosphere is chill and homey. Showers have hot water - so nice! Wandering the property was beautiful. It is about 2.5kms out of town but we loved it. Beds were also comfortable. Rooms with big lockers as well
