Hostel Tralala Salento
Hostel Tralala Salento is located in a traditional coffee-region house that has been converted into a beautiful, modern hostel, just one block from the central town square. It offers an ideal starting point for the trek to the Cocora Valley or a visit to a coffee farm. With a maximum of 23 guests there’s a calm, intimate feel to the hostel. The styling is a combination of traditional wooden floors and ceilings and new and funky kitchens and bathrooms. We've been receiving happy guests since july 2010
There's a living room with a book exchange, a 32 inch television with cable and DVD and a large and varied collection of quality movies. All beds have duvets with white linen, good mattresses, soft pillows and all guests get a towel. The showers are always hot and the two kitchens are well equipped. Free coffee, tea, oil, sugar and salt. There's a supermarket around the corner.
Also there's a patio with hammocks, a garden with sun terrace, free wifi, laundry facilities and rubber boots for rent. If you practice yoga you can borrow a yoga mat.
The general idea behind Tralala is to create a hostel that's intimate and tranquil and provides all the little things that a traveller needs to make life on the road more comfortable.
Hostel Tralala Salento has 4 rooms for guests.
Room 1 (the dormitory) and room 2 are located on the ground floor. They both have a big door to the partially covered patio. Room 4 and 5 are located on the first floor, with a door to the spacious veranda.
Room 1- Is the dormitory. It's actually two connected rooms, where 8 people can sleep in 3 bunk beds and 2 singles. Each guest gets a lockable drawer.
Room 2- Is a double room with a hippie-touch. There's a built-in cupboard for your belongings. A door opens out on to the patio.
Room 5- A spacious room with two single beds. You share a shower and bathroom with maximum 2 others.
Room 4- A double room with a small private bathroom.
Of course we think Tralala is one of the best places to stay, but don't take our word for it, look at what some of our previous guests have to say on Trip Advisor;
One of the best hostels of our trip.
The owner has done an excellent job revamping the old house into a cool and colorful haven. Everything from the white cotton sheets to the taps have been carefully chosen and put together.
There are two kitchens available to cook in, hammocks to relax in and a wide screen TV with a large selection of DVDs to watch.
Absolutely beautiful. There are so much thinking behind every single detail that makes everything perfect! It is right at the center, but calm and quiet.
Very nice kitchen and showers, and very beautiful garden. The dorm is divided so never feels crowded. Hemmo, the owner is very nice and you can tell that he loves his hostel.
This hostel was one of my best experiences in Colombia and would be a first choice when I come back.
