Excellent english speaking staff. All activities can be easily booked at the hostel. Only down side is that the ten bed dorm can be a bit noisy in the mornings since there is the common area right next to it - if you wanna sleep longer....

Had booked private with shared bathroom but got upgraded to ensuite on arrival which was a great surprise! Overall a good vibe, with spacious private room and bathroom. Staff extremely helpful and able to book activities for you. Even at last minute - we were able to go paragliding within an hour of asking!! Close to town and feels really safe at night.

Staff were very helpful. We left a pair of sunglasses which they contacted us about to send them on to us. Location was perfect, near to the main square. Very clean and secure. Kitchen was extremely well equipped.

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!
