We’ve stayed in some amazing hostels during our eight years of travel, however none can compare to the extraordinary location that we just recently just stayed: La Serrana Eco-Farm as well as Hostel in the coffee region of Salento, Colombia. In our opinion, if you don’t stay here, you’re missing out!
Note: We weren’t paid to compose this evaluation as well as we didn’t get a complimentary stay. We paid for our space just like you…but we liked it so much that we felt it deserved this write-up! ?
La Serrana has many space options: camping in your own tent, camping in their high-end tents, dorm rooms, personal spaces with shared bathroom, personal spaces with ensuite bathroom, as well as our space which was really in a separate house, about a 7 minute walk down a dirt road from the primary hostel.
Our home was called “Las Camelias”, as well as it was showed 2 other rooms. We were in the King space as well as it was spectacular!

From our bed, we looked out with a big window at the mountains across the way. The sun beating in the window in the morning was the very best method to wake up! during the freezing evenings when it was raining, we would light a terminate in our personal fireplace as well as fracture open a bottle of wine.
The bed was comfortable as well as the connected shower room was a bonus.

We likewise had gain access to to the entire farmhouse, with the other two couples who were staying in the other rooms. We had some fantastic housemates! The living space was full of comfortable furniture, one more fireplace, a big dining space table as well as a kitchen area for us all to use.

Apreciando as vistas na entrada de La Serrana
Mesmo durante o clima chuvoso / nublado, ficamos admirados com o ambiente, principalmente quando a névoa aumentava do piso do vale para produzir uma atmosfera assustadora!

A melhor área para café – este cachorro de estimação era tão adorável!
