The siblings who run the hostel were very friendly and helpful. You can book tours and transport to next destination from them which is very useful.


The staff at El Dorado is what makes your stay worthwhile. Whoever is at reception welcome you with friendly smiles and are ready to help with whatever you need. If you need a bus ticket, they'll have one delivered. Want a good meal? They'll point you in the right direction. The hostel is right in the center of the action, a half block from the main park and close to all the restaurants and markets. And don't forget to ask about El Dorado Expeditions and the outdoor activities around San Gil.


The staff was great but unfortunately the sheets where not clean. I recommend to book with an anticipation of 2 or 3 months so the prices doesn't go up. The room was not too big and it didn't have a place to organize what you carry.


We were a group of 3 travellers and were able to get a private room for the same if not cheaper than the dorm. Hostel kitchen is perfect, chill out area is small but big enough for number of people staying there, showers are warm and clean, tours are available at the desk, they have a book with all available but nothing is pushed on you which is great! I did paragliding in chica mocha canyon, it was expensive but amazing!!!


Had a lovely stay here. Everything was easy, Fabio and Miguel organised all of our activities and arranged our onward bus tickets. Very nice hostel, would recommend to anyone looking for a pleasant stay in San Gil.
