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!!
Golondrinas offers an experience equal to home-staying. The excellent staff contribute to a very warming welcome backpackers need while reaching Iquitos and preparing to continue their journey to the jungle. The pool for sure gives the certainty that is the place to stay.
Great value for money and a nice little place to stay in Iquitos. I was only passing though so can't speak for the location but seemed pretty central. The owner and staff were really friendly and helpful but had little or no english (except for one guy who happened to be there when i checked in) - that seems to be the norm in Peru, so brush up on your spanish!! Would recommend Golondrinas for budget stay
Probably the best cheap place to stay in iquitos
Pool. Did I say pool? Don't go to Iquitos without a pool. The pool here is great, and the young guy and the lady running the show are lovely, and the place is well cheap. Just go there.
Fantastic hostel in Iquitos, extremely friendly staff willing to help with anything. You may book tours through the hostel as well. Couldn't have been happier with our stay there.
We really enjoyed our stay at Golondrinas. The facilities were great (clean, well-equipped kitchen, and a swimming pool!), the staff were helpful and the location is good. Excellent value for money.
