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!

We (couple, 41 & 50) stayed at Kasa Guane for one night in April 2014. We paid $38 a night for a room with a private bathroom. The room was small and the bed was average comfortable. The bathroom was small, too, but clean. There was a big TV room. We did not look at the community kitchen. The hostal... More

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... More

I stayed at Kasa Guane for only one night, but enjoyed it. The hostel had a very laid back feel and the staff were all helpful.

Kasa Guane was great. We decided to visit Colombia because we'd heard such great things about the friendly people, culture, landscapes, for the biodiversity of flora and fauna. We flew to Bogota, which was a big city as imagined. On arriving at our first 'real' destination Bucaramanga, we were not disappointed. Stacks of really unusual, beautiful, multicoloured birds spotted, and... More

I was welcomed to Kasa Guane by the two very friendly, warm, smiling faces of Ruben and Jenny. They immediately made me feel at home and were more than helpful with information on where to go and what to do in Bucaramanga.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kasa Guane is Bucaramanga’s first and friendliest backpacker’s hostel. Located in the heart of Colombia, with 10 Universities Bucaramanga is a young, vibrant city with many cafes, restaurants, bars and nightclubs all within a 10 min walk of the hostel.The city is great to explore on foot and is known as the “La Ciudad de los Parques” or “City of Parks”. You are never far away from a nice spot to chill out, kick back reading a book or simply relax with a beer watching the world go by.The hostel is set in a large, newly renovated, three storey house with clean spacious rooms and social areas. The 24 hour reception and a six bed dorm are located on the first floor along with a big fully equipped communal kitchen and a separate dining room. We also have a laundry service and free coffee 24 hrs. On the second floor of the hostel there are 3 private rooms, a 6 bed dorm with balcony and an 8 bed dorm. All the rooms have new silent fans and comfortable beds with semi-orthopaedic mattresses for a quality night’s sleep. There is also a hammock area and bathrooms with hot water. Upstairs on the third floor we have a large TV room with cable TV and computers with free internet. This opens out onto a big terrace with private bar and pool table where we have regular cinema clubs, language interchange evenings, theatre groups, live music and pretty much anything that helps to create a good mix of both travellers and Colombians in the hostel.After a combined 2 years travelling in Colombia, new owners Milo and Tim chose Bucaramanga as the place they wanted to live and linked up with Bucaramanga local and paragliding instructor Richi to help out with the growing number of backpackers and Colombians arriving in the city.At Kasa Guane we strongly believe in a personal service and as travellers ourselves understand that sometimes its help with the small things that can help you get the most out of your stay. We are more than happy to help with anything at all, from travel tips to booking flights and visa extensions. Come and check out Colombia’s most exciting new city destination and let us show you why Bucaramanga is a backpackers paradise yet to be discovered! ... more   less
