Having a pool is very nice, especially as it's so hot and humid! The staff are very helpful and explain a lot about the city and where to go. I would definatly stay here again.


Very nice and friendly staff. Good atmosphere. No roaches and very few mosquitoes, clean toilets, clean sheets, clean pool, but the rest of the place is a bit dusty and could do with a some cleaning. They let us store our bags for 2 weeks with no charge, great service! If you arrive late at night, take a taxi, not a motokar, and let you stuff be in the taxi untill they open the door for you.


Staff was fantastic, friendly and helpful, but the place could badly use an upgrade-- we had a private room next to the pool and our mattress was ANCIENT, so were the pillows. And the sheets, though very clean, had some old stains and small holes in them. We also found little gnats in the bed on our final night, which was disconcerting (though I don't think they were bed bugs). The curtains were pretty nasty too, and the glass in the window slats were loose and I had to fix them several times.

Good place to stay in inquitos. Thx a lot for your care. We wanted to go to belen - what can be dangerous if y want to go by boat through this area - and they heard that. So one of these guys from the hostel came with us - without any belongings... rooms are clean. Not fare from center.


Dirty room. No laundry service. No people (= no atmosphere). Really bad WiFi.


This place has a pool! Good showers, but no hot water. It's a little far away from the main square, but the rooms are quite cheap for the town. The receptionist was very helpful with information about what attractions there were in Iquitos.


This hostel was great to stay for a couple of days in Iquitos. They have a pool out back, and a fan in every room, which comes in really handy since its very hot and humid. Around 8 blocks from the city centre, its better to take a mototaxi than walk in the heat though.


Very friendly folks. They really took the time to answer any questions and would chat about anything you needed. Great value, very clean.

Good basic room. Bathroom was kept clean. Only minor complaint is we were covered in lint from the bedsheets.


Bed was clean. Room was good for price.

It has a small swimming pool, which in Iquitos is really usefull!! Very friendly staff. Simple and old building, but clean. Not very close from the center, but not far (7-8 minutes walking). Good value for money!


IT HAS A POOL!!! The pool makes the hostel, so good for a dip in the afternoon. Dorms ok, has a fan. A boy billy in the hostel spoke very good English and seemed to be always there. Hostels a good place to chill. Took a motokar from the airport cost 8s. Took the local bus back from outside the hostel cost 1s took 30mins. 2 day amazon tour cost 200s and was really good, all the tour companies should go down to that price or less if there is a group of you. Amazon tour was amazing...a must do!!
