Liked: Outdoor hammocks had a great view of town. Easy to find.

Disliked: There is construction going on that we were not aware of ahead of time and it was conveniently going on right outside our window (private room #4) starting at 7am each day (more like 6:30 since the workers came in and talked very loud). Between that, the very thin walls inside, and every room connected to a common area that is overflowing with guests it was almost impossible to have any quiet what-so-ever. The worst part out of all of it was that the guests and construction workers who were smoking outside would do it literally right in front of our window. So it was either roast in a room with no fan or no air conditioning by having the window closed, or have it reek of cigarette smoke the whole day and night.

Liked: The hostel itself is nice - well laid out, clean, with comfortable beds and a decent kitchen. But, what made the place stand out was the staff. They really couldn't have been kinder or more helpful - they were absolutely lovely and really help you make the most of your stay in this beautiful area. A real home from home.

Liked: Effectively you are staying with the family of the hostess (along with a number of other guests). She did not speak a lot of english, so the ability to speak some basics in Spanish definitely helps, but we survived (the other travellers defintely helped and were part of making the atmosphere)! She was extremely friendly and bent over backwards to assist us, with organising travel and information about the area. The hostel offers mountain bikes for hire, which made visiting the surrounding area (including coffee plantations) a lot easier, and gumboots which were a necessity for the Valle de Cocora in wet season.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Extremely friendly and helpful staff, well-equipped clean kitchen, location good, spacious room and a lamp (seems to be a rarity in most hostels). Excellent information leaflet on local activities and a welcoming homemade lemonade! Nice firm bed

Disliked: This is going to sound fussy, especially as i am backpacking, but the bed sheets were the only negative thing about this hostel. The top sheet seemed to be made of nylon (not so nice to sleep in) and was barely wide enough to span the bed when no-one was in it, many cover fights were necessary :)

Liked: Ernesto and Eliana were super helpful and lovely. They organised tours for us and booked us a bus out of Salento. They sat us down and told us everything there was to know about Salento when we arrived. The hostel is clean, quiet, has lovely views of some of the surrounding valleys, has a fun atmosphere and the internet is good.

Disliked: It's a bit outside of the centre of Salento, but Salento isn't huge so it wasn't much of a problem.
