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

    Macondo was amazing. The staff were so incredibly helpful, especially Shaun - the owner- who went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay. The rooms were clean and the showers the best I’ve had in Colombia. No complaints whatsoever, recommend to everyone looking for adventure in San Gil.

    Loved our stay here, the staff were so friendly and accommodating. Dorms were very clean and we enjoyed the hot tub. We used the kitchen and enjoyed the morning coffee. With so many activities in San Gil the hostel is nice and quiet during the day. Taco night on Thursday was also very good.
