We really enjoyed our stay here at Kasa Guane. All the staff were super friendly and helpful and the hostel it self is really nice. Good size room with our own bathroom although the showers were cold and the bed was pretty hard. Nice kitchen area to cook up your own meals if you'd like as well as cable television... More

This is a convenient and clean place to stay in a decent neighborhood of a big city that has little to recommend itself. The staff are helpful and friendly. If you have to stay in Bucaramanga, this place will do.

Upon our arrival, we we're told that there was a mistake in the booking process and that unfortunately all private rooms with bathrooms were occupied, so we were instead offered a private room without a bathroom. This room was located on the ground floor (as opposed to the other rooms which are located on the first floor) behind the pantry... More

This is a great hostel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had lots of questions to ask and they were able to help me out. The rooms were clean and there was enough space. It was in a great location for bars and restaurants also. I highly recommend this hostel for backpackers.

I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. I had no reservation but the staff were able to find a room for me anyway. Luis Alfonso was extremely helpful in helping me with making arrangements for my excursions.

Really liked this hostel, one of the best I've stayed in. Rooms were spacious and airy and nice bathrooms with hot water (I'd been on the coast for 4 months beforehand so had only had cold showers!) The bar area upstairs was a nice place to meet fellow guests/ locals before heading off to enjoy the night elsewhere. All the... More

The location is close to many clubs, restaurants, shopping, but hard to find. I didn't have an address so could only give the taxi driver the name, he had to stop to ask other taxi drivers where it was, and still had a hard time finding it. Definitely a younger crowd, good group of volunteer teachers, travelers... The bar up... More

I only stayed here for a night before catching a flight the next day. The staff are very helpful; they let me use their computer to check in for my flight and then let me print off my boarding pass.
