Only stayed 1 night length of stay depends on how much activities you plan to do. Location is good. Not much of an atmosphere in the hostel. Was kind of expecting hot water in the hot tube. Staff were ok but was going to be charged more for a bus ticket that was cheaper elsewhere. All activities can be arranged by the hostel or you can walk to the bottom of the hill turn left and there are plenty of people trying to sell you the same activities. Haggle if you can. Check out El Mana restaurant.

Macando was one of the best hostels I've stayed at in Colombia! The owner Sean is super nice and helpful, as well as the rest of the staff! The rooms are clean and the jacazzi is really nice to relax in after a day of adventure sports! Definitely reccomend staying here!

Absolutely loved this place. We ended up staying for a week as we loved the vibe so much. The Aussie guy that owns the hostel is a top bloke, and all his staff are wonderful. The tejo night was brilliant, and so was the rafting. They even put on a Colombia vs Gringo 5-a-side footy game for us. The free jacuzzi is a great touch too. San Gil in general was one of our favourite places in Colombia, and this hostel was certainly a part of that. Comes 100% recommended from us. Cheers guys!

Really awesome, chill, clean hostel with a very helpful and knowledgeable staff with great tips on local food and adventure, as well as getting from one town to another. Great environment to make friends. Not a party hostel, but a very sociable one.
