I loved everything about this hostel. It is a beautifully renovated house with the prettiest garden I have ever seen. As it has been renovated the bathrooms and kitchen are new and clean but the place still retains its charm.

The hostel has all the necessities covered - good wifi, amazing hot showers (and plenty of them considering it's so small) two fully equipped kitchens, hammocks, comfy TV room with tons of great films, super comfy beds and pillows, big lock boxes for your gear under the bed plus shelf space in the dorms. The staff are super nice and have some really great recommendations about what to do in the town and surrounding areas. The owner is Dutch but all the other staff were Colombian and there was a nice mix of Spanish and English spoken in the hostel. They make you fee really at home here.

I loved that it is small (max 21 people) so it is really easy to meet fellow travellers and chill. And if you want to relax this is the place! Noone that was there could bring themselves to leave. This really is an amazing hostel and I highly recommend it!! I have just arrived to Medellin to a not so nice hostel and am having Tralala/Salento withdrawal.

I think I will have to go back soon... go there!!

Room Tip: If you are going on a weekend make sure you book ahead as it fill up. You can't miss it when you arrive, it is right off the plaza where the bus drops you.

The beds here are comfy, made everyday and fresh towels. The staff were extremely helpful and very pleasant. I stayed here five nights before moving on. There is nothing bad about Tralala. There are two kitchens and this means a lot at mealtimes. A good selection of movies and books.

Room Tip: All rooms are great

Stayed for 1,5 week at Tralala and loved the relaxed atmosphere and the well thought of details throughout the hostel. You will find fantastic comfy and long! beds with duvets. Clean towels every day, bathrooms are spotless and have good hot showers. Kitchens are a joy to cook in with all the utilities you need and again very clean. There's good wifi, a tv-room with lots of dvd's to choose from, relaxing hammocks and a pick-nick table with beautiful views of sunsets. It's very close to the main square and lots of things to do in Salento, not only a visit to Valle de Cocora (which is a must). Visit the small coffee farm or go for a trip to the waterfalls by horse, try the chocolate cake at José Martin (it's delicious!) with also over 20 different kinds of coffee to choose from, have one of the burgers at Brunch and spend an evening at the Speakeasy. Also very entertaining is to play a game of Tejo at Los Amigos! Last but not least, the staff of Tralala is very helpfull and always friendly and smiling. I already have and will keep on recommending this hostel to everyone visiting Colombia! :))

Very clean hostel (rooms, bathrooms and kitchen). We emailed upfront to the hostel for our reservation. We got a quick response and our reservation was noted in the book (which is not always the case in Colombia (we heard)). The room does not have much furniture, but is enough. In the two kitchens you can prepare your own meal/breakfast. The hostel is located 3min walk from the bus and jeeps (to valle cocora)
A recommendation which would make it even better: instead of a table on the topstair, some relax chairs or hammocks as you can super enjoy the late day sun overthere.

One of the most comfortable, clean and "luxurious" hostel in South America! Situated in the village centre. The rooms are friendly and modern, the kitchen is so clean that you really want to cook there. The prices are a bit higher than at other places, but it's worth it. The Dutch owner gives you every information you need if you want to do any trips. There's WiFi, but unfortunately there aren't any computers you could use.
