Considering the Hostal is in the middle of the amazon, it was clean and you get the feeling the hostal tries hard to provide you with a pleasant experience (such as filling your dorm with fans to give you some chance of sleep in the humidity). I have enjoyed my stay.

Perfect hostel for relaxing before or after a sweaty jungle trek - you can spend all day in the pool! Lots of hammocks around too and a nice atmosphere. Wifi is ropey but that is the case in most of the town I think.


Very helpful staff, great place to meet other travellers! I would stay here again.


Very nice and cheap hostel! Great outdoorarea with very clean and nice pool and hammockarea. Nice athmosphere. Room could have been cleaner, the shower was not so warm and the breakfast was nothing to write home about but very nice place anyhow!! Would definitely stay there again!


Shop around. There are heaps of hostels etc in this small town.


Hostel always had lost of people coming and going (who weren't staying). Breakfast was not good but standard for many places in SA.


hostel had a few local men drinking and making comments to the girls and local kids possibly staffs children in the pool. staff did speak English and we're friendly/helpful.


Only stayed there on the way into the Amazon and it was nice enough. Had friends stay longer who loved it and the pool. Really flexible in not making us pay for cancelling our booking last minute which was appreciated.


This hostel has a nice outdoor area for sitting and chatting to other travellers. It has a very basic kitchen and is about 10min walk from the main street. This hostel was fine for a short stay and the breakfast was adequate though it ran out earlier than it should have


The room was very stuffy, even with the fan on, the breakfast was average, there was a graduation party on in the stadium next door till half 6 in the morning, so I got sweet f all sleep, good DVD/tv area though.


We were given a tiny bedroom with. Noisy fan that was fairly ineffective. Ordered a fruit shake and it took them 10 mins to come and tell us that the blender was broken. Wifi was bad but then that's the case for most of Rurrenabaque. Good pool and hammocks.


Nice place to relax and meet people. Clean, big pool, cheap bar, big kitchen and clean rooms. Nice relaxing atmosphere. Would definitely stay here again.


The place to stay in rurrenabaque!


They make you wear a wristband, but other than that is was fine.
