Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This hostel is quite large and has many options for sleeping. You can camp, stay in a dorm room bed, or get private rooms with or without private bath. We chose the private room and bath as it was only $19 USD a night and loved it. It’s open air in many places, but this adds to the feel. The staff is very nice and helpful, and breakfast has great coffee and they cook you eggs. It’s basic food but good. There is also a parrot outside who whistles, and there is a nice courtyard. The only downside is there is basically no soundproofing, hence the open air rooms, but it’s not bad.

I really liked a lot of things about this place. The location is excellent just off the square, it has a relaxed, easy vibe, nice common areas to hang out and the place is clean and comfortable. I liked it. My issues were with the level of noise - not only do they have caged parrots that begin squawking around 6am, but the hang out area is right in front of the rooms/campground and parties can last well into the night. The wifi was very slow. Also, the toilets don't have seats on them (in the shared bathrooms, at least). This is the first time I've come across this outside of a bus station. When I mentioned it to them they seemed unconcerned and just said "yes, they broke". Ummm, how hard is it to replace a toilet seat? Anyway, I'll get off that - friendly staff, free coffee, no breakfast.

Super cosy hostel with a beautiful garden that is home to lots of animals. The hostel is super central and at the same time offers a perfect retreat. The staff are super friendly and give super helpful tips right from the start.

We had booked a room for one night in this hostel but ultimately decided not to stay there after finding out our bedsheets were infected by bedbugs. When we told the staff about it, they started arguing we were making things up and refused to pay us back. They wouldn’t let us discuss this matter with the manager either.
If you’re looking for a clean hostel, don’t go there - there are so many better options in Salento!

Chicas vinieron a decir mentiras para que la noche fuera gratis, siento decirles que su opinion no es verídica pues tenemos muchas opiniones donde la limpieza es excelente. Sentimos mucho que lleguen personas como ustedes a nuestra ciudad.

We were in Salento during a long weekend - for this reason, it was harder to find available (and affordable) rooms in the town.

We spent some time in the morning walking around and then found the Hostal Estrella de Agua. The room the owner showed us was nice and we agreed on a price. We emphasized on the fact that we were staying at another hostel and needed to make sure the room was reserved for us for Friday and Saturday. Again, we agreed and shaked hands.

When we came back at noon to check in, the owner let us know that the room he first showed us was now only available on Friday night as it was reserved on Saturday: we will have to change room for the second night. The second room he showed us was definitely of a lower standard. Obviously at this moment we weren't really pleased but we still decided to stay.

Then, he announced us that customers just called and were willing to pay 120 000 COL for the room we reserved while we agreed on paying 80 000 COL. He said he could no longer charge us 80 000 COL but would let us the room at 100 000 COL instead.

No need to say more - We finally decided to leave.

I definitely not recommend this place for its poor business ethic.

There was no atmosphere there, and the dorm room had two walls of windows with curtains that didn't cover all the windows but a light right outside. The pillows were also very flat and uncomfortable. The cleaning lady was super lovely and friendly but when I asked the reception for a lighter to use the kitchen they were really difficult about it, saying I should have brought my own.

I stayed at Hostal Estrella de Agua at the end of October 2019. I hadn't made any reservations and my bus arrived at 11pm so I wandered the very quiet streets, with a few other people who had come off the same bus, and we came across this place. The manager offered us 20,000 per person. My stay there was nice and quiet. They have hammocks for lounging, a kitchen if you want to cook, and free coffee from 8am-10am every morning. Nice hot showers too. I would recommend this place for sure. Good value.
