Great hostel. Very friendly atmosphere. The owner, Sean was very helpful and enjoyable. Easy to book any activities in San Gil through the hostel. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
An excellent hostal! Extended my stay by 4 days because it was so relaxed and sociable. A small town but the activities are bountiful and the scenery gorgeous.
Great place to stay in San Gil. Staff is very nice and helpful with booking bus tickets or activities nd the owner knows all the guests by heart. There is also a nice, relaxed atmosphere and it is very easy to meet fellow travellers here. Only negative thing is that the rooms get very hot at night but there are fans, bring earplugs because they make somd noise. Would definitely recommand this hostel!
Well located in San Gil, clean and well maintained. Very helpful staff and good tour booking services. Or just relax in the garden with the jacuzzi ...
Very clean, helpful staff, reasonable price for laundry service (15000 per bag) But u have to pay in cash and wifi doesn't work in dorms, not too bad for me. I would stay there again
Really great hostel! All the info about the town and its activities are available, and it's so easy to book. Really hassle and stress free. Shaun the owner is super nice and so accommodating. Even when our plans changed and we wanted to stay longer, he and the other staff were really helpful. The hostel is in a great location, 2min walk to main square which is a great place to hang out. The rooms and bathrooms are all really clean. Kitchen is huge and tidy. Garden is lovely! We would stay again!
Staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly Andrea. Shaun was always around and very sociable which makes a big difference. Great hostel, great value, great city.
All staff were very helpful in both planning activities in and around San Gil as well as onward travel plans. Beds were nice. WiFi was reliable. Jacuzzi was a bonus.
No breakfast was a shame. Needs lockers for bags and valuables.
Nice hostel. Sean the owner was super helpful. Hostel was o ly about 4 mins walk to the min square. One of the girls on reception was not particularly friendly , minor detail. Good hostel.
I had an incredible time in Macondo hostel! The owner offers you great trips for great value. He also involves the guests in local activities (playing a game of tejo or watching a soccergame in a local bar) The location is right in the center of town. I highly recommend staying here!

Super friendly and helpful staff. Shaun was great helping us set up our various activities around San Gil and took us to play tejo. Convenient location with plenty of good food nearby.
We really enjoyed our stay at Macondo Hostel, the staff are extremely friendly and help you with absolutely anything you need. From the second you arrive at the hostel they give you so many options of how to spend your time in San Gil all of which are extremely cheap and amazing experiences. The hostel has everything you need to make your time in San Gil as cheap and enjoyable as possible. All in all we loved our 5 day stay here and would recommend to anyone!

Hi, Very pleasant stay at Macondo Hostel good advises from the staff and nice room with comfy bed! Only a bit of noise because of the room located next to the kitchen (I have generally difficulties to sleep though).
