We stayed here for three nights. All days we spent trekking around Salento - Cocora Valley, coffee tour, so we came back just for the rest to this hostel. We lived in private rooms with shared bathroom. The room is very basic, but for the sleeping it's normal. The rooms near the kitchen are quieter, so sleeping quality is good. But the cleanliness in the bathroom (with hot water) and in the kitchen is terrible. There are all facilities in the kitchen, but you should clean all dishes, because everything are dirty, cockroaches are everywhere.
There are communal area with fireplace in the kitchen and nice terrace where you can eat you breakfast. The coffee, internet is for free.
The staff is helpful and friendly, can speak in English a little bit. The location is very good.
There is one good benefit in this hostel - coffee tour in English. As more you stay in this hostel, as less you pay for this tour.
This place is very charming, but needs more cleanliness and love.
