What our guests say about us....

“Came for a night…stayed for a week!” – One of the best hostels in Colombia. Had an absolute blast when I was here. Really friendly staff, very knowledgeable and always helpful. Meticulously clean, the hostel’s got great communal areas. Very easy to find stuff to do in the city so it’s probably a good idea to allow yourself a few days extra to really enjoy it. Top marks, keep up the good work guys.

“Great Hostel in Bucaramanga “ – Stayed in Kasa Guane 5 days in total. The hostel is right in the city. Nothing to complain. Very clean rooms with balconies!! the housekeeper is great person (well done Miriam!!) the bathrooms spotless and the shower the best so far in south america… hot shower with great pressure. All the staff at the reception always happy to assist and recommend. All in all a very nice stay at Bucaramanga and Kasa Guane! I will be back!

“A great hostel, lots of advice, activities and everything you need!” – I stayed at this hostel for 10 days and after travelling for the last 8 months around latin america I have to say that I think its up there with the best hostels! Everyone who worked there was incredibly helpful and good to hang out with as well. There are a lot of activities going on most days and I was particularly happy to get some games of footie while I was there as well which I’ve been missing while travelling!

“Wonderful hostel in a non-touristy city”They immediately made me feel at home and were more than helpful with information on where to go and what to do in Bucaramanga. They have a great terrace bar where they have live music. I also volunteered with their foundation, Goles por la Paz and had a great time with the kids, teaching English and playing various games. The foundation has already made an incredible difference for this kids and its potential is huge! It was a truly rewarding Saturday morning and I wish I could have stayed to volunteer every Saturday!

“Surely Colombia’s friendliest hostel”- I got stuck here for 3 weeks! Tim, Milo and all the staff were so friendly and helpful and I was made to feel welcome right from the beginning. There’s a really nice community feel to the hostel because of their involvement in local events and their foundation. Every weekend the bar is packed with locals! I couldn’t recommend Kasa Guane highly enough!!

“Amazing Hostel” – This hostel is great! Amazing owners who go out of their way to help you. Great atmosphere and nights in the bar, but also somewhere you can relax. Highly recommend it! It’s really central and a great base to do all the many things available in the area!
