Best Hostel in Colombia. Great staff, especially Shawn the owner is a great guy. We had some medical issue and he helped us sorting everything out and translating at day and nighttime even in the hospital.

Loved this hostel. Not a party hostel because everyone is getting up early to do adventure sports (hostel can book these for you) but a great place to meet people and hang out. Stayed in the 8 bed dorm and it was huge. It had a massive walk in wardrobe and HUGE shower with hot water. The receptionists were so lovely and helpful. Location is perfect, very close to the main square and felt very safe. Tejo Tuesday's is also so so fun. Highly recommend.

Great hostal, staff amazing to help you book activities or just information on the city, buses, etc Big kitchen and fully stocked. The only down is that there is no lockers. You can but your stuff at the reception but not that safe and not useful at all if you have more than your phone and passport to put aside. I didn't hear anything about thefts though.

I just loved this hostel in San GIl, the Australian owner and his local stuff were very-very helpful, they lot of activities what you can book from them (like paragliding, caving, ziplining, etc... ), but also help you if you want to do something else than outdoor activities. The rooms are nice, beds comfortable. just can advise.

LOVED staying at macondo. The young girl with braces at reception was extremely helpful and kind!! Very informed staff, ate fresh papaya and mango that was grown at the hostel. Overall chill vibe with many people hanging out. Would highly recommend.

Really helpful staff, you can get information and book any of the activities San Gil has to offer. The jacuzzi is in nice condition, along with other nice areas to socialise.
