well, it feels more like a bar/restaurant with a huge dorm-room with 12 beds ( I guess 6 beds were indicated), not bad but no real hostel-facilities like common room, kitchen and internet-access via work-stations,
This place is amazing! It's not so much staying in a hostel with a brewery/cafe, it's staying in a brewery/cafe with a hostel, which gives it a really cool vibe. In addition to the amazing beer they make, they bake all their own bread, so their pizzas and sandwiches are incredible. The building is really cool and buga is a really charming colonial city. If you enjoy amazing beer and food and really good people, give yourself a couple days to stop here on your way to or from Cali. I'll be back.
Great place! Friendly staff (Especially Charl!), good food, central location. We stayed here for longer than we expected to once we arrived. Its less like staying in a hostel and more like visiting a friend from Buga. Intimate and personal. Only 1 hour from Cali airport and a variety of delicious craft beers in the hostel (try ginger honey!)

So, you probably came to this hostel for the beer, and you won't be disappointed until you find out that their sister bar serves the same beer for cheaper. All but two of the security lockers were broken, all the fans were broken and there are mosquitos at night in the sleeping area. Also, I asked the folks on site to help me book a day hike for the next day and although he had a cell phone in his hand, he said he couldn't do it. I had to wander around at 10pm to try and find a phone, no luck.
Fantastic hostel in this must-visit place. Charlie will look after your every need, and make sure you have a great time. Micro-brewed beers and the pizza are fantastic. I've not a bad word to say about this place. Make sure you take one of Pipo's tours whilst you're there.
