An excellent choice! The manager is very responsible and will expel those whose behavior is antisocial! He's a mine of accurate information and, like all the staff,is very helpful.Highly recommended.

Couldn't be happier with this hostel. From the first second I walked in I felt welcome. Shaun the owner helped us organise all he activities we wanted to do, he was a super friendly guy and was happy to help when ever we had a question. The rooms were clean, the living areas were nice and chilled, the showers were excellent and the wifi was also brilliant (if that's a selling point). I'd recommend anyone to stay there, it just makes the whole stay in San Gil so much smoother and relaxing.

If you want a quiet San Gil stay, Macondo may not be my first recommendation. However if you're looking to do any activity then you owe it to yourself to swing by. Not only can you organise every activity imaginable in San Gil but you can rest assured it's the best value without compromising quality. Great location near the square without being noisy, crazy knowledgeable on the best places to eat and see & oh and god bless that hot tub. Avoid the main dorm, the downstairs 4s are far nicer

Hostel was helpful in organizing activities and is clearly very established in this area. The owner had lots of local knowledge and was happy to share.

Great hostel. its well ubicated, close to the adventure offices and the main plaza. Th dorms were good quality and the bathrooms were really big and clean. The common areas and the staff are the best part of the hostel, the jacuzzi + the hammocks + the trees are great. The staff was awesome they helped with all the plans (Paragliding, bikes to the falls and night out)
