Good location. Quiet hostel. Wifi and tv and basic breakfast included. Lockers outside room are quite small and unable to fit a standard size bag. Staff very helpful

Thank you for the review, I just have to desagree that our breakfast is BASIC, considereing the standart of the hostels breakfast in Peru. We have 4 fresh types of fruits, tea and coffe (as much you want self service), brad, butter, jam, and a boiled egg included in the price. Lockers are 35cm 120cm, more than enough to store a normal size back back. Our staff is here to give you as much information is possible to maximize the quality of your visit to Iquitos.


It's a bit further from the city center compared to some of the other hostels, but it was actually great to be away from the busy commercial area, especially if you're in Iquitos to work with the medicine. The people running the hostel were my favorite thing about staying at Green Track! My entire trip to Peru could not have been the same without Fernando and Soleil! For only staying 3 nights(around my ayahuasca retreat), I cannot express how much they're love & wisdom meant to me. Thank you, BG


We had a really great stay at Green Track! Fernando and Soleil where so welcoming and friendly, and really helpful during our stay. We really liked that they told us about the jungle animals wellbeing before we chose our jungle trip and the tour they can arrange in the Belen market was really an experience. We would defenetly recommend the Green Track Hostel.


Great located, great staff and had a great stay! The owner is really helpful and knows lots of activities which can be done and support also natural environment protection. No matter what kind of information or interest you need/have, he knows everything! There is really no issue with ringing the bell during the night, since you get a key to avoid this (mean if people loose the key it is their fault, not hostel). Once we were sitting all together and had lots of bottles Vodka, sponsored by 'em

Hi Safina, Thank you for the generous review, we are still improving and learning, New lockers, new managmant, Wish you happy travles and safe way back to Germany


I was very happy with the hostel. It is cheap and cheerful. Reading a few other reviews - some bathrooms were missing latches, but it's not a big deal. The place was cleaned every day.sometimes people dump muddy clothes everywhere (like us) and make a mess! We had keys to the hostel so got in easily... Breakfast included fruit and a hard boiled egg - up there with the best I had in Peru. Murilo gave us fantastic advice about going to the Amazon - arranging a home stay for us which we loved.

Dirty hostel with no apparent owners. Very noisy and hard to sleep, the room was hot dirty gross cramped. Had to leave asap the next morning to find a new hostel. The owners don't stay overnight and the guests have to keep opening door for hostel guests ringing loud bell through out night and next morning. Staff member did not speak English and couldn't help with advice or planning. Beware do not stay here.

We're sorry to hear about your experience. The owner had a medical emergency and couldn't tend to the hostel for a week, including the night you stayed. The desk attendant did provide you a map and direct you to iPeru. All rooms have fan or a/c-you were in a fan dorm. We can't control the mess that other guests in the dorm make, and we do have private rooms for private space. Guests have keys but may lose them when out partying; we usually don't have a problem. We will be re-training staff.


This was a cosy hostel, easy to meet people and relax. There is only cold water for showers, but this isn't a problem with the hot weather. In the dorms some mattresses are comfortable and some are not. The staff are friendly. Just make sure you get a key off them as we were locked out of the hostel for 20 minutes at 2 in the morning.


The only comment I would make is that the staff weren't around that much. Sometime when I had a problem and wanted to ask them something I'd have to go and look for them first. Also I heard some bad comments about the breakfast - however I thought it was really good, my boiled egg was still hot when I went at 8am and there weren't flies on the fruit like I'd read about.

Thanks for staying with us. The owner had a medical emergency during the time you stayed, so staff numbers and attendance was not to normal standards. The bad comments you read from last year about the breakfast are not a problem anymore because we have completely changed all the staff and even the hostel building and facilities since then, and we are proud of the breakfast we offer. Thanks again for choosing the Green Track Hostel.


Dirty place, noisy, there is not privacy in the shared bathrooms And showers. All negative comments in hostelworld are true, stay elsewhere!!!!!!


I had a great time at Green Track. Everyone was friendly and helpful, and breakfast was always delicious. The only thing I did not like was that the bathroom door didn't latch completely. I get that it's a hostel so lack of privacy is to be expected, but having to hold the bathroom door shut with my foot so it doesn't fly open while I pee is a little much.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us in Iquitos. We're proud of our breakfast and glad you enjoyed it. We would have been happy to fix the bathroom door or anything else that might have needed attention if you had mentioned it during your stay. We want everyone to feel comfortable and do our best to make it happen! Thanks again for your stay and we welcome you back anytime.
