Buga Hostel
A Small Town Alternative To Cali, Colombia

Welcome to Buga Hostel

Our Story

We founded Buga Hostel in 2011 to help travelers venture off the beaten path and explore the hidden gems of Colombia. Combining our passion for travel, food, and craft beer, we´ve created an unparalleled hostel experience that you won´t want to miss. Wake up to the smell of our homemade sourdough bread that we prepare every morning for the Holy Water Ale Cafe and take a tour of the Holy Water Ale Brewery to learn about how we make our artisanal beers.
Come discover Buga and find out why we are one of the highest rated hostels in all of Colombia!

Why Buga?

Buga is a ’small town Colombia’ – off the beaten track with few foreigners yet several activities and areas to be explored. Grab a draft beer to start, then explore the town and the nearby mountains!

Holy Water Ale Cafe

Every morning we bake our delicious home-made sourdough bread that we use for our many sandwich and pizza options. Find out why Holy Water Ale Cafe is one of the best restuarants in Buga!

Holy Water Ale Brewery

Getting tired of Poker and Aguilla Lite?? We have nine different craft beers that we brew just blocks from the hostel and restaurant. Take a tour of the brewery and then try the beers for yourself!

Volunteer Opportunities

Between the hostel, restaurant, and brewery, there is always plenty to do. We are looking for volunteers to help attend to our hostel guests, wait tables in the restaurant/bar, and help in the brewery. Click here to learn more about how you can get involved!
