    Best views in a hostel ever. You get outside and you see the beautiful mountain views that Salento has to offer. Staff are amazing and knowledgeable about what to do while in Salento. Walking distance to the town's center to take a Jeep to the famous Cocora Valley.

    The staff here really went above and beyond helping me with plans around Salento and transportation. The dorms were incredibly clean and the hot water a pleasant surprise. The property is what is this hostel's most extraordinary feature. It overlooks the mountains and green spaces southeast of Salento, an amazing scene to wake up to each morning. They've covered the inner courtyard terraces facing that direction with chill spaces and vibrant, tropical plants. This is a really special hostel.

    Maya was amazing! Very accomodating staff and even with the current state of travel the atmosphere was still acceptable! The rooms were clean and the views were amazing for being on the edge of town. Lovely place. I do recommend!

    Incredible views of the mountains and valley as soon as you walk through the doors. The staff is exceptionally friendly and they always have a smile on their face :) Breakfast is from 8:00-10:00, 10,000cop (eggs, fruit, OJ, yogurt, cereal, and free coffee refills). Beers go on your tab so you can pay everything on card when you leave. Ask if you can have a bonfire beside the bar at night, this makes for the perfect nightcap after a long day of hiking or mountain biking. Cheers :)

    Viajero has a beautiful garden with a beautiful view over the mountains. Since I couldn't book online, I did it via whatsapp. Once arrived, it was suddenly no longer possible for the agreed price. She still made a "special deal" for us, but we were still more expensive than we had agreed. Of course this is not normal .. as a compromise we received 1x free breakfast and laundry service. You can use the kitchen, but you are not so welcome by the chefs .. Once used a super cozy campfire, the other

    Although the front desk service was phenomenal and very helpful with everything during my stay, traveler be warned: what you see is not what you get with regards to the dorms. Lockers that don't work, upper bunks with no power outlets, mosquitos galore...not fun. The private rooms are a different story, and are fantastic in every way, so if you are planning on staying at this property, it's worth spending the extra money to get a private, and avoid the dorms at any cost!
