          I decided to stay here after hearing some bad reviews about the people who stay at La Serrana which is where I originally booked to stay. It is also a little bit out of town so not good for a lone traveller as such.

          Plantation house was a great choice because the people who work here are lovely and it's a real central place to go anywhere in Salento. It is also owned by the guy who does the Don Eduardo coffee tour which is a really good, informative and beautiful tour.

          It is also situated on the road that used to take you from Salento to Bogota. It is no longer used by cars but people and horses continue to use it. You can take this route to go to Cascada Santa Rita which is a beautiful little waterfall in the mountains.

          I stayed in the newer dorms on the other side of the road to the office and I can safely say that the beds are the most comfortable beds I have stayed in in the whole 4 months I have been travelling.

          We really enjoyed staying here! The room was cosy and the shared bathrooms were good. The communal kitchen area is excellent and the constant supply of free coffee much appreciated. The grounds of the hostel are beautiful and provide great views across the surrounding fincas. The highlight of our stay was the coffee tour with the eccentric 'Don Eduardo' (aka Tim Edwards from England!) who owns the hostel and nearby finca. The hostel is only a short walk from the superb 'La Eliana' restaurant.

          Etwas wenig Platz drinnen um sich bei ungemütlichem Wetter aufzuhalten. Wifi sehr schlecht. Könnte mehr daraus machen... 19000 pesos, ca. 10fr.

          Andres of the Plantation House was great and very helpful. 7 minute walk to the center. I heard the coffee tour to Finca Don Eduardo is really good, unfortunately I only had one day here and decided to go to Valle de Cocora instead. You can rent rain boots for 5 mil here as well. Try the Kombucha too! The hostel is not the cleanest place, but it has hot water for showers and a cozy fire in the kitchen. Free coffee in the kitchen in the as well!

          The colombian guy working there was unpleasant. The english owner is great though, very knowledgable about coffee and has the best tours in town. Wouldnt stay again as for the price, the competition in Salento is better

          After booking our bus ticket in advance due to Semana Santa "Easter Week" we arrived back to our hostel to book our next hostel in Salento. The only thing that came up on hostelworld and booking.com was a 15 bed tent in the next town and we were having none of that. We trailed through books and eventually got in touch via email to Plantation House …
