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.

    We had such a great time at the Macondo - great room, beautiful courtyard and a hot tub to relax in after a day of exploring and adventure, and the staff and owner were so friendly and helpful. Always willing to take time to help you figure out your bus schedules, activities, places to eat, etc. Can't recommend them enough. Definitely plan to be there for Tejo Tuesday, it's a blast!

    My stay at Macondo hostel was superb. San Gil offers many activities and Macondo hostel will help you to experience all of them. It's super easy to book tours at the friendly reception, and most of the time everything is included, they pick you up and drop you off at the hostel. I did an amazing horse trail through the mountains surrounding Barichara, Macondo hostel organized it exactly to my needs. As an advanced rider it is hard to find suitable tours, but Macondo hostel managed to do it.

    Awesome hostel in a really good location in San Gil. Shaun the owner is super friendly and really knowledgeable on what to do in San Gil and the surrounding areas. Easy to organise activities through the hostel and good atmosphere and easy to meet people. Hostel has a jacuzzi which is pretty cool to chill after a long day out.

    Stayed for a lot longer than initially planned! All staff have great knowledge on activities including walks along the nearby Camino Real. So easy to organise activities via the hostel, who will book with the safest companies. Good selection of board games (Catan), HOT TUB is great for socialising. Also Shaun, the Australian owner, has an adorable 1-year-old at the moment. Sociable atmosphere but nice and quiet for sleeping after 11pm THANKS SHAUN for a couple of great stays
