    Super friendly lovely staff and really lovely hostel. It’s a little way out of Salento but we managed to walk there in about 30 minutes. It’s easy to get to from Armenia too. They have some really adorable animals there and it is just so relaxing to get out of the city for a while. Would 100% recommend!

    Carolina was a truly wonderful host. She looked after us so well and was available for all our questions. Her doggos were a treat as well!! The accommodation was delightful and we thoroughly enjoyed the open fire in the evenings.

    If you want a chilled out spot to relax for a while and get away from the cities this is a great option. Locals come to stay here as well so a really good way to practice Spanish. The lady on reception can speak great English and is really helpful. If you don't mind walking the town is only 50min one way and coffee plantations are 50min the other way.

    This is truly one of the best hostels I’ve stayed in. The location is a little farther from solento, but if you’re looking for a place that’s a little more remote this is it! The comfy blankets, gorgeous views, and great value are the best reasons to come!

    I had a wonderful stay at the Mochila Hostel! Carolina was a wonderful host, giving lots of useful tips, and her dogs and cats sweetened my mornings. The evenings were awesome filled with campfires and Jacuzzi baths. If you're looking for a comfy hostel to relax after your hikes in the area, you have found it!

    Super hostel a short bus ride from Salento town. The location is ideal if you are looking for a peaceful and tropical space. The jacuzzi and hammocks overlooks a stunning view of the farms from a higher vantage. The dorms were a little tight and the showers are very minimal but everything was brand new, spotless clean and the staff was just fantastic! The space, the dogs, the beautiful people, the great breakfast - it was totally worth it and just about worth the hassle of taking a bus to town

    Located a bit outside Salento, this hostel is a perfect way to spend a couple of days after staying in the main town. Friendly staff, clean dorms, hot showers and a couple of playful dogs. They also serve dinner and it's nice to relax by the fireplace in the evening.

    If you’re looking for a quiet getaway area this is it! It is such a lovely hostel about a 25 min walk from town. The owners are super sweet and willing to help with whatever!

    A very nice hostel with a very chill atmosphere. The staff is nice and flexible, and they offer great tours for reasonable prices. The only thing is, that it is located a bit from Salento city. The bus is quite easy to get to the city, but the last bus is at 8:30pm which makes it a challenge to get back to the hostel. There is not many taxis around.

    Don't stay here. Too far, way too far. It's not worth it at all. There is no kitchen so you can't cook food and you have to trek all the way to town(45min walk) to get food or purchase the overpriced food they sell. The Wi-Fi is non existent, the breakfast is a joke, beds are just a mattress on the floor, they charge you 3 times more for a beer and you aren't allowed to bring your own into the hostel. I was so disappointed in choosing this hostel. Just go somewhere else, trust me.
