The Experience

We´re a Bolivian-Dutch family with two children (5 and 7 yrs), we opened our hostel in october 2016 in Samaipata. Located on 10 minutes by foot from the main square and market, with a magnificent view over the green mountains and the village Samaipata. Helping out with preparing the breakfast, general maintenance, interaction with our guests, learn new skills/improve your english/spanish language. Our place is a good spot for relaxing in general

Tuve una buenísima experiencia en el Serena Hostel. La energía está presente y la buena onda también. Todo muy tranquilo en un ambiante super lindo. Bert, el dueño es una persona flexible, amigable y interasante. Allá uno se siente en casa




El hostel es increíble. Por dentro es muy lindo y hay siempre un ambiente de paz. El patio es increíble, perfecto para descansar con unos paisajes hermosos.
Bert es una gran persona de la cual se puede aprender mucho, siempre muy respetuoso. Yo la pasé muy bien.
Mi única recomendación es coordinar bien los horarios y días libres para no tener ningún inconveniente :)
Muy agradecido a Bert y su señora.




El Hostel Serena es un lugar muy cómodo y agradable. el trabajo en el mismo es tranquilo , su anfitrión Bert es exigente pero su trato es muy cordial. Solo hay que aclarar de entrada horarios y días libres .
Fui muy bien recibida. Me llevo un recuerdo muy lindo del pueblo de Samaipata y la flia anfitriona.
