Meet the staff

The owners; Mike and Diana

We’re a Danish/Colombian couple (Mike and Diana) that run the Casa Blanca Hostel in Cali.

We opened the doors for the first time 5 years ago and haven’t had them shut since.

We’re open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We have 32 beds in the hostel ranging from dorm beds til private rooms and twin bed rooms.

In these 3 years we have gotten two daughters, opened Motolombia -a motorcycle tour and rental business and expanded our capacity to now also include a big fully furnished private apartment with 4 luxury rooms and nice common areas.

The daily administrator; Leidy

Diana’s sister Leidy is our daily administrator and is always ready to help our guests with information on where to go or what to do.

All travelers are welcome in Casa Blanca Hostel. We do not exclude any nationality or type of traveler. If you’re looking for a nice, clean, cheap, safe and friendly place to stay in Cali – come to Casa Blanca Hostel.



New York Times have finally found out what we have been saying for a couple of years now. Cali is definitely worth a visit in the near future.

That’s why Cali now can be found on the number 10 spot of New York Times list “The 41 Places to Go in 2011“!

Congratulations Cali!

On top of all the usually mentioned attractions like The Worlds Most Beautiful Women, Salsa Capital of South America, Year Round Tropical Warm Weather ect. – we have asked several experienced travelers to write about their favorite places in Cali. These exciting articles can be found on our blog


Bikers Wall of Fame
We have now reached more than 200 bikers visiting us here in Cali since we opened. Being a motorcycle world traveler, Mike tries to help out all the overlanders with their specialized needs – like finding spare parts, making shipping arrangements across the Darien Gap, paper work and permits, insurance,  bike maintenance and storage at Casa Blanca’s huge covered and secure parking lot.

casab2Hi Everybody

One year ago, on August 1st 2008, we opened the doors for our very first guests at Casa Blanca Hostel. And what a fantastic year it has been!

We would like to thank the many many guests that have visited us here in Cali and made our first year as host and hostess a very special and rewarding one.

Several of you have come back more than once or stayed with us for a long time and we take that as a confirming sign that we’re doing things right.

Celebrating our one year anniversary, we launch this new website with more information, pictures and interactivity and hope to welcome many new and former guests in the coming years.

See you!
Mike, Diana & staff
