Property Description

Due to the Corona Virus we are no longer offering shared dorm beds. Our dorms are now available as 3,4 or 5+ privates and we have lowered prices for privates for individual travellers. We love this town and our guests and hope to offer the best and safest experience for our guests during this time of uncertainty. Our staff are available 24 hrs with travel updates and we are taking special care in cleaning and disinfection, we ask our guests to show the same respect and care with our staff and felow guests

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

    Excellent hostel, one of the best I have stayed at in four months travel in South America. Lots of interesting recreational activities and adventures. Very good atmosphere, but not a party hostel. Quiet hours from 11pm. The staff is excellent and very helpful, especially the Aussie owner.

    All the facilities are amazing here it’s right in the centre so a short walk to all the bars & restaurants. Sean and the rest of the staff here are so helpful and really nice. Do the white water rafting & paragliding! One of the highlights of our trip. If we are ever in San Gil again we will definitely be staying here

    Perfect base for adventures in San Gil! There is a great social atmosphere, with organised events like Tejo Tuesdays and BBQ on Sunday. Dorm is spacious and clean, with a fan. Hot showers and jacuzzi. Wifi is strong and the kitchen is open to guests. All activities can be organised through the hostel too.

    Lovely hostel, close to the centre and lots of cafes and restaurants. Staff were great and had a lot of activity infomation. Lots of chill out areas. Nice dorms and great kitchen. Would love it if you offered a waterfilter to reduce plastic waste though.

    As soon as I arrived at Macondo, the staff made me feel welcome. They were all very knowledgeable and helpful, offering suggestions about all there is to do in the area. The common spaces are very nice as well, especially the hot tub and hammocks! There weren't many people there when I arrived, but the hostel filled up as the week went on.
