Awesome value for money. Especially the private rooms. Great kitchen. Really nice pool out back. About a 10-12 minute walk downtown. Fans in the rooms. Staff are great. Only 2 slight downsides: one was not lots of other people this time of year so not super awesome atmosphere (but it's just the time if year) second is although it's hot as heck in iquitos but ther are only cold showers and no hot water for a lukewarm shower. No biggie. Did the jungle tour with them and it was AWESOME! Do it here!

Golondrinas is the perfect place to stay if you´re looking for a safe, great value for money and reasonably quieter place to stay in Iquitos. The staff speak good English and are very warm, welcoming and giving (Vill supplied me with cutlery and a large bottle of water for the boat trip I was about to endeavour, for free!). The facilities are in great conidition and there is also a great pool to use to unwind and relax and cool off (It´s mighty hot in Iquitos!) I highly recommend Golondrinas.

I really enjoy my stay here mainly because billy the reception. he is such helpful and lovely person. for someone new to iquitos. a map a pool is a must. they provide towl for free. good internet connection. a place to relax. and price is good too. they are often full and busy, so often wont get a place by just walk in. installing hotwater would be a great addtion. one of the best hostel in iquitos after stayed in 4 of them.

The pool is an added bonus but the hostel itself seems a bit dead. I would highly recommend booking the jungle treks with Goldrinas, the lodge is incredible and the guides know their stuff. We managed to catch a sloth and an anaconda!

Golondrinas is an ok hostel. To me if felt more like I was staying at a large share house, and the staff also live at the hostel. There is a kitchen for cooking, the beds arent bunks which is awesome, and there is a nice big pool at the back of the hostel for a dip as it can get pretty hot. It is about 8 blocks from the main square, but that shouldnt be an issue as the walk only takes about 10 mins.

Decent hostel, as quiet as you can get in the city of Iquitos. It's about 9 blocks from the Plaza de Armas and the riverside restaurants. The room was basic, but had a powerful fan pointed right at the bed which was amazing since it was so hot! Close to laundry facilities and the staff were helpful and spoke good English.

There are many places to stay in the blocks around the plaza but this hostel was 10 blocks away and not in the safest area. The floor in the room was filthy and when we asked the staff for a broom they were fairly rude 'this is not a 3 star hotel what do you expect!' Had to laugh. 3 star hotel it is not but neither is it worth the money for somewhere quiet and shabby.

Golondrinas is a great place to stay at in Iquitos! The staff super friendly and you really feel at home. Kitchen is well equipped, no breakfast included. The pool is perfect and they provide you towels. In dorms there are small lockers for your valuables. One little disadvantage it has though: the center of the city is a fast 10 minutes walk away. However, the whole package is so good that I'm glad to stay another two nights!

Pretty average hostel on the whole. I tried booking in another day after seeing availability on HostelWorld and they said that the rate doesn't apply.

The four bed dorm is extremely hot so you have to sleep with the noisy fans on. The pool makes up for it. Wifi is sufficient. Staff are very helpful.

Strange little place in a strange but interesting town. Clean but with very little atmosphere. Pool is nice and large. Lockers very small, more like a drawer. Stayed one night. No breakfast included.

It was a cheap couple of nights so we were happy with our stay. It has a pool that was nice to cool off in. The room had a fan which was nice at night. The staff were really nice. The location is not very good because you walk for over 10 minutes to get to plaza de armas and we didn't feel very safe doing that at dinner time or later.

Good location and basic hostel which is very good for the price compared to the other hostels in Iquitos.

This was a very nice place to stay. I stayed here for 4 nights and have no complaints. The staff are very friendly and although I don't speak Spanish, it was easy to communicate... A few of the staff speak English. The pool is definitely helpful on the hot days. It is quiet and not a party hostel. I would recommend this place to a friend.

All in all a pleasant experience. Got a room by the pool, which was nice. About 10 blocks from downtown, so a bit of a walk. Did not get sheets changed each day, but not a big deal with me. Internet was spotty and slow. Having a pool and a kitchen is great in my opinion. I would go back.

Average hostel. At least three of the rooms are located with a window to the side where the swimmingpool is, that's not so nice if you want to sleep early or don't want everyone to hear what you're talking about.. But at 11 pm they close this area, so that's ok. They should improve the cleanliness of the bathrooms. But the rates are really low, so that would be a reason to stay there.
