Macondo was a fine place to stay. The hot water only works when you use low pressure. There is not much of atmosphere upstairs, but the downstairs area is nice to hang out. Staff will book excursions for you, but the daytime lady is a bit too much of a stickler and the nighttime guy didn't tell us correctly. Another man there was very helpful though. They leave the front door wide open so little security. If you have to leave your bags , there's no locked location. They just sit by the desk.


Can't fault the hostel. Great friendly staff, one even let me watch game of thrones with her one evening! Able to book all activites you want with them. Nice rooms and jacuzzi outside! Warms showers always clean. Maybe the only little thing I could fault was the small indoors sitting area not the biggest or comfiest but this is being very picky!
