Description

You will feel VERY welcome from the moment you arrive at this cosy Buga hostel which is located conveniently on the way from Cali to the coffee region. Do a trip with Pipo Tours to the Los Pitingos Canyon (4-6hrs, 15pp); reaching the beautiful waterfall Cascada de los Milagros followed by a cable car adventure over the river Guadalajara (4-6hrs, 15pp + B 7); go swimming in pristine natural pools, Los Pailones (6hrs, 35pp) incl. transport + lunch in an old Hacienda. Here you can listen to the historical story about this authentic finca where the hike starts & which has been in the same family for almost 200 years. OR go swimming & hiking in Los Chorros (6-8hrs, 15pp + B 7). At the end of a day of exploring, the best way to cool off is by drinking a delicious artisanal nano-brewed Ale, made right in the hostel's own Holy Water Ale cafe. Delicious sourdough bread & pizza are also prepared and can be enjoyed on the balcony or their roof terrace. For those looking for an off-the-beaten-track-experience with few foreigners, several activities & areas to be explored, the hostel is a great base & source of information.
