The hotel was very well kept and perfectly located in the central area of Barranco. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff was very helpful, with very good English.

Nice little hostel, short walk from main square. Villi is an amazing guide and we would recommend a jungle tour with him.


This was a good hostel for an overnight stay or passing travellers. Good value for money, a bit far from everything tho but i booked knwoing that. Plus it was cheap to book a small mototaxi down to the river. The staff were impeccable and really made the place so thank you very much to them.


It is a nice and clean hostel with friendly staff. They have a small swimming-pool which is nice to relax and to refresh. I would stay there again.


I really enjoy my staying in this hostel, the hostel located not far away from the main square, about 8min walk maybe. The hostel is clean and has a swimming pool, the staffs there are super nice! In the fact, you shouldn't miss the jungle tour they offer, its name is 'Jungle wolf Expedition', they have also good rating in Tripadvisor. I took 5 days jungle tour and it was so good. The lodge there was amazing and very clean. I highly recommend you join their tour!!


This place was what we needed - simple, cheap and quiet. The staff is nice and some are fluent in English. There is a pool which can be nice for the hot weather. Ten to fifteen minute walk to downtown, which have some respite from the noise from the mototaxis.


The location is not very good, sort of an eight-block-walk from everything. There is no drinking-water (they only sell half-litre-bottles). I had to change beds after the first night because the mattress was extremely worn-off and the second mattress I slept on was only slightly better. The pool is surprisnigly large an the staff was really kind and friendly.

the owner, Rosa and her staff Wlly and Herbert are really outstanding. genuine and friendly. this is a former Family home with a swiming pool in the patio. not a place to party or do drugs, but a great place to even find a real shaman that the locals use for their medical needs and of course a great place to start the Wolf tours, you are lucky if you get to do the jungle trip with Willy.

We stayed at this hostel for 3 nights and did a tour with the jungle wolf. The stay was awesome, gated area and there will always be somebody to let you in. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils. There is also a laundry room to hang your hand washed clothes. Location wad good, about 10 mins to grocery store or within 3 blocks to a clean pizzeria or a two story restaurant. It was pretty quiet not too loud from streets.


The place was clean and the staff were friendly. We weren't too far away from the main square. The only downside was that we stayed in the room with twin beds and the top half of the room was just a screen. You could hear people who were in the kitchen or computer area. No one was too loud or anything, but you don't have as much privacy as you might have expected.


Exactly what we where looking for.


I liked this hostel very much. The staff was amazing. Forgot my phone there and they kept it safe until I was back! They were so helpful and sweet!


Pool is very refreshing and nice to have after a jungle journey. Seems Relatively Far from the plaza del armas and waterfront compared to other hostels but Iquitos is quite small so it's only about a 10 min walk (pretty comfortable and safe walk).


Staff were really welcoming as well as knowledgeable and helpful. Room was basic but comfortable. Swimming pool was great for cooling off. Nice outside seating areas where you can chat to other guests and fairly well appointed kitchen. Good location, a short walk from the main plaza. Would definitely stay here again.


The kid at the front desk was very rude and looked annoyed that he had to check us in at night. This is a place for a quick one night stop over in Iquitos to catch a jungle tour but I would not stay more than that. Not a place to meet other travelers and far from the center of the city.
