Property Description

The original and most popular hostel in San Gil famous for its helpful Information and a great social atmosphere Macondo continues to rank number 1 in all major guide books. Host of San Gils famous Tejo Tuesdays (local game with explosions) its a great place to meet other travellers and form groups to take on adventure activities.

Relax amongst the mango and papaya trees in one of the best hostel gardens in the country complete with a heated jacuzzi to unwind after a hard day of adventure.

Unlike other hostels in town we don't close our social areas at 6pm and you can enjoy our jacuzzi until 11pm when people most want to use it. Plus you can save money and bring your own drinks to have in the garden.

We have a great selection of board games, direct TV to watch your favourite football team, lockers, kitchen, coffee etc but its the quality of the activities and free information that we give saving our guests money and helping them have the best possible experience that has made us so popular.
With so much on offer in San Gil from so many companies of different standards we help you not waste time and get you on the water, in the air, on 2 wheels or underground with the best guides. Safety is huge or us and we wont recommend anything that I personally havent done myself. View House Rules

    Great hostel with great staff. We loved the Tejo Tuesday night and we met some fun and interesting people there. One big problem is that there is no drinking water available and San gil can be very hot so you end up creating a lot of plastic waste.

    This hostel is incredible. The staff is extremely helpful, and makes you feel at home. There are great activities organized by the hostel so everyone can get to know each other. Can’t say enough great things about it. If you are in San Gil, definitely stay here.

    Brilliant place to stay for activities and socialising in San Gil. Professional, informative staff always happy to help. Private room at the front was a bit noisy and hot next to the road, but we still loved our stay.

    Shaun, Carlos and staff couldn’t have been more helpful. Shared lots of information on activities and helped with booking the tours. They even organised a BBQ Sunday and Tejo on Tuesday. Both were great. Very social hostel and we would defiantly stay again.

    Shaun and team are awesome. He helps to arrange events some most of the evenings to bring everyone together. Tejo night was my favorite. Also, taxis were protesting one day and not running and Shaun was kind enough to drive me himself. Great place to stay!

    Facilities are older style but fantastic hostel, staff are super social and have loads of information to share. Super easy to sign up for activities, you just tell reception and they organise it all for you. Great location, likeminded travellers and jacuzzi is really nice after a day out. Would stay again

    My stay here was only for one night but I had a very good experience. The atmosphere was very sociable which was partly to do with the people staying there but also I think helped by the environment at the hostel. I didn't get to use the jacuzzi but I imagine it would be nice after a day of extreme adventures. Good location close to good food options and not too far from the central Parque La Libertad.

    Great atmosphere, very social but also nice and chilled - tejo night was fab and all organised so you didn't have to do anything! Reception guys were also so helpful with tips of stuff and activities in the local but also where else to go in Colombia and booking buses etc... Definitely recommend!
