Description

The Hostelz.com Review

A small hostel with a warm and friendly vibe in a beautiful location in Salento, Hostal Casa del Loro is an excellent option for people looking for a quieter, more tranquil experience.

The Location

Salento is a small town where just about everything can be reached in a short walk. Most hostels in Salento can be found within a few short blocks of the main square and Hostal Casa del Loro is no exception. From the main square, you can get transportation to the famous Cocora Valley, book tours, find great food, and hike fifteen minutes up to the mirador of the town. The main bus terminal used for the farther away cities is about a twenty-minute walk from the hostel. Look for a green- and-white building and a wooden sign out front to find Hostal Casa del Loro.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The bedrooms are large and spacious and come with clean sheets and extra blankets for the cold nights. The outlets are plenty and Wi-Fi is good, but the rooms feel a little barren and could use some decorating and redesigning to take more advantage of the space. There are bunk beds and some single beds offered. The bathrooms are small and in need of some minor repairs. There is very little hot water in the bathrooms and the pressure is not great.

Common Spaces

Hostal Casa del Loro is adjoined with a small restaurant, which serves great breakfast and other delicious foods for a reasonable price. Here, you can enjoy free coffee and get food. Close to the front entrance is a large map of Salento on the wall with helpful tips on Salento. Additionally, you can get more information on tours or make a reservation. There are more couches and seats scattered around the front desk and restaurant, as well as hammocks in the backyard with a small garden and beautiful views of the area. There is not much common space, but for the small size of the hostel, there are enough common spaces in which to relax.

Summary

The owner is so welcoming and helpful that you feel like you are saying goodbye to family when you leave. The size of the hostel creates a unique intimate environment, different from many of the other big hostels. This place is definitely recommended for families or backpackers looking for a peaceful hostel in Salento.
