    Great hostel. Met a lot of great people to hangout with during the day. Good beds that are sturdy and don’t disturb much when bunk mate comes in/out. Amazing view as well. WiFi is ok, but everything else was 10/10.

    We had such a lovely stay at Viajero in Salento! The hostel is located beautifully and super close to the main town square. The views are pretty spectacular and the staff is friendly and super helpful. The only issue was the lack of bathrooms. There was only one bathroom per room of 8 and one public bathroom. Otherwise a really wonderful and chill place to stay.

    We booked a superior double room and had the best view over the mountains from our balcony. The room was clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast was good. Staff was really nice and the atmosphere in general was really good :) we ended up staying for two extra nights because the hostel and the town was amazing.

    Enjoyed my stay here. Super convenient location, amazing views, staff were always really friendly and helpful and the free salsa class was great! Only area for improvement would be the little things (e.g. making sure that bathrooms have hand towels, ensuring that showers drain properly etc)

    Great hostel, loved the free yoga and it was an adorable place. Staff were lovely. Bit far out (not really but in comparison to other hostels in salento) and no free breakfast was a bit annoying considering the price. But it’s really nice.

    Room beside firepit takes in a lot of smoke, as there isn't good firewood provided (or available). Probably a bad spot for the firepit. We had to be moved. Paper thin walls but I doubt you'd get any better in Salento. Bathroom shower didn't drain well in both rooms we were in. Nice views, nice staff

    ++ - Very clean, comfy, well-organized hostel - Lot of chill zone areas -- - The same type of traveler - Hostel missing a soul, the reception desk always greet travelers with the same sentence which is a bit awkward - No activity directly advertised although I guess there is a lot of potential - Stayed during the Salento Feria and nothing was explained or organized to take advantage of it

    This hostel is pretty average. You could have a nice time here or not. They charge you extra for almost everything, including basic things you would generally expect in a hostel these days e.g water and towels. The breakfast for 7000 isn’t worth it and little things like no bath mats or hand towels are annoying and make the bathrooms messy. The hostel has a nice garden with great views and the staff are nice.

    Nice garden with a ver nice view. However, dorms and bathrooms would need a little bit of a make up. furthermore and especially for mixed dorms a no go: I stayed in two different rooms and both bathrooms didn’t have a toilet seat. For the price I would expect more.
