About Macondo Hostel
Owned by a fellow budget traveler we know how annoying hidden hostel costs are so although we may seem a little more pricier than our competition we don't charge you extra for towels, internet, use of jacuzzi or to bring a bottle of wine into the hostel for dinner making your stay cheaper than at most places.
More than just a hostel with a Jacuzzi and beautiful garden its Macondo's social atmosphere and helpful information that has made it so popular. Never wanting to be a large hostel we have kept things to a medium size because we enjoy getting to know our guests. The layout of the hostel encourages people to get together while still offering quiet space for those looking for a hammock or to sunbath. Meanwhile we organise social activities like our famous Tejo Tuesdays, football matches and BBQ's.
We have a large kitchen
But the reason you are in San Gil isn't too sit around a hostel, We like to think of Macondo as the hostel for people who want to do things. This is an amazing town with a lot to offer with adventure sports, hikes, waterfalls and great people. We make it as easy and cheap as possible to get to know the surrounding areas with plenty of info on walking trails and nearby towns in our information guides and videos you can watch on arrival. We organise cultural activities teaching guests local sports like Tejo or where to eat typical foods like Ants and goat.
Then there is the adventure sports and San Gil has a lot of them with Colombia's biggest Rafting on grade 5 rapids, best mountain biking and most beautiful paragliding, explore one of the many caves, learn to kayak or rappel down waterfalls. We organise all your activities with the safest and best guides not just with one company but directly with the best company for each individual activity insuring you have the best and safest experience while in San Gil and we charge the same prices as you would get directly with those companies.
Macondo offers a range of accommodation types from economic dorms for those on a budget to smaller dorms for those looking for a bit more privacy. We also have a number of private options including cheap rooms without bath for couples or individuals, our newly renovated privates with bath for those looking for a bit more space plus our twin, triples and family rooms.
Rooms have fans and blankets as San Gil has great weather sunny in the day and cooler at night, air con isn't needed. Showers have hot water. We provide a secure area to lock valuables at our front desk as we believe individual lockers in dorms not to be safe. The hostel has CCTV cameras
