    The hostel owner was extremely helpful and friendly. As soon as we arrived he suggested places we should visit in the area, and explained how to travel around. He was always available to answer questions, and offered cups of delicious local coffee. The hostel location of the hostel was perfect. It is less than a 2 minute walk from the plaza and close to all the restaurants and bars in the town. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Salento.

    Can’t recommend Art Velez enough. Prime location only 2 blocks from central plaza. Lovely local owners with excellent knowledge and information about the area. Quiet hostel with antique furniture and style, and well designed. Great value for mohey. This place makes for a comfortable stay and easy to organise activities from. It’s also really easy to look around town from the hostel being so close.

    GREAT Hostel! After spending 4 weeks in Medellin and growing accustomed to the noise of a city of 2.5 million people, this was the perfect location to escape the bustle and reconnect with nature. The sounds of Rooster’s in the morning and horses in a pasture were accompanied by birds singing to create a peaceful ambiance. Salento is nota very big town so walking from one side to the other can be accomplished in about 10 minutes with a brisk pace. I would love to return here some day and spend a

    Stayed in a private room with ensuite bathroom. Not the biggest of rooms but more than adequate space for luggage and good to have my own shower/toilet facilities too. Hostel is in a really quiet corner of Salento but still only a short walk from the centre of town (perhaps 5 minutes at most), so good if you're after a good night's rest! Cooking classes available for those seeking alternative activities during the evening.

    Lovely place, very close to the main plaza, but the same time close to the nature. Very lovely and welcoming staff, gives great advice on what to do in the area and offer some tours as well. Confy beds and free coffee in the morning! Fast wifi and the owner speaks great English too. The only thing we would wish for is the use of kitchen to prepare your own food. Other than that perfect and very much recommended!

    Really lovely hostel. Fernando and Paula were great. Only had a day and a half in Salento and they advised us on how best to use this time. The hostel was spotless, great location and coffee offered in the mornings. The only thing I guess that stopped me giving this hostel a 10 was no use of kitchen but they do have cooking classes. All in all worth the stay :) ty

    The owner is very nice and helpful. It is a nice hostel but it’s lacking in the atmosphere department. As a solo traveler that’s very important to me. But the beds were comfy which was much needed after the valle de Cocora hike

    The hosts are absolutely wonderful! Sweet, caring and helpful. More friends than hosts. I loved my time here, even though I would have liked to have a kitchen at my disposal..
