Property Description

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.

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 Nights (local game with explosions) its a great place to meet other travellers and form groups to take on adventure activities.

We have a great selection of board games, Netflix, 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

    I can't say enough good things about this hostel. Shaun, the owner, has got everything just right. The private rooms are lovely and the showers are great! He's created a great open communal area and kitchen. The staff are all lovely and so helpful with booking activities. Shaun has loads of experience in recommending the best and safest companies to do extreme activities with and can help you plan your stay Definitely go to the Tejo night on Tuesday if you can

    The best hostel I've stayed at so far in Colombia! Shaun and the rest of the staff are amazing, and super helpful. Super easy to book onto activities. The garden area is a great place to hang out with other travellers, or find your own space to chill out. Also the showers are really good, and actually have water pressure.

    Loved my stay at Macondo. The owner, Shaun, and all the staff are super friendly, helpful, and treasures troves of local knowledge, especially when it comes to booking any activities you might want to do. They've scoped out the best tours and guides, so choosing and booking activities is really easy with them. As a solo traveller, it was also a good place to meet others (Macondo's tejo night was super fun). All the locals know Macondo too, so any taxi driver knows exactly where to drop you.

    Really helpful staff and a very clean room and bathroom. No social atmosphere at all, however did sound similar to the other main hostels in San Gil at the time.
