I stayed in Kasa Guane over a year ago when it was under different management (it's the only real hostel in Bucaramanga). I came back to find the new owners, Milo and Tim, who were very helpful and enthusiastic about the region and was refreshing to see owners more involved with their guests and displaying a real passion for the city, it's people and its surroundings. They helped organise a paragliding session for me too which was great!! Apart from the fact that there is not enough bathrooms (please sort this..), the hostel is nice and cosy with a great terrace where there is a pool table. There is also a bar to socialise which was great- especially when it rained. I stayed in dorms which were clean and simple. Nothing out of the ordinary there. My stay ended up being longer than expected and needless to say I'll be back guys and look forward to it!! Thanks for your help.
- 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.
