Nice, relaxing stay in a well run hostel. The hostel is of the older type found in Colombia rather the newer, more boutique style offerings found in some of the cities. This hostel is in an excellent condition, just off the main square in Salento where all the restaurants and transport options (Willies!) are to be found. The hostel is on the side of a hill so nice views over the surrounding areas. Nice, relaxed vibe throughout and a good bar on site. Reception staff were helpful and organised a coffee tour shortly after we arrived. Breakfast rather poor and lack of truly warm showers were only downside.

Ik raad niemand dit hostel aan! Wij hadden een privekamer incl. eigen badkamer. Het bed was zo door gelegen dat je in een kuil lag en je ook op geen andere manier een houding kon aannemen. Daarnaast was er zo veel geluidsoverlast vanuit buiten dat je het idee had dat brommers/paarden/mensen in je eigen kamer stonden. De ruimte was verder klam, geen raam wat open kan. Al met al vreselijk echt geen aanrader!
