Rainy season...the rain prevented some activities. The staff worked with me to provide what I wanted most...an overnight in the jungle and the swim with dolphins ( extra fee of 75$). Enjoyed swimming in the Rio Negro. Would love to come back and spend more time in the jungle. Staff was very good.

Overall fantastic, but at least some light source in the rooms after 9pm would be a great improvement. (e.g. a solar light, or candels) Guides were amazing

What excellent value for money!! At just double the cost of a dorm bed in Manaus, included was transport there which involved a car, a 4x4 and 2 boats, all food which was the best we've had in a long time, and most of all 2 full days of activities. We only booked one night but managed to fit in piranha fishing, jungle trekking, aligator watching and swimming with pink dolphins (which was a bitt extra but worth it), And a visit to a native jungle village. For one night, brilliant.
It was neat to be out on an island, without electrcity. The food was the same every meal each day, no variety at all. I have some issues but will deal with the company itself. I would recommend going here to someone if they wanted a location that has everything you want to see in the Amazon.
Staff go out of their way to make sure your tour is worth your money- fished for piranha, night spotting of caiman, held a sloth!! Food is tasty rice, yummy bean stew, fried fish and fresh fruit every meal. Accomod is very simple- apparently it was the rainy season there so much of the land is under water. Thus we were in a hostel on a floating platform. It creaks all night so bring earplugs!! :) Did the 2 n, 3 d which was perfect. 1 night slept in hammock in middle of jungle. Showers dont work.
Information should be updated as there are actual indivdual rooms (or doubles depending on room) not Hammocks, hammocks are only used for camping in jungle
Our four days in the jungle were really excellent. They far surpassed our expectations!
This is not a hostel, this is in fact a jungle tour (or better a jungle expedition with a space of real Brazilian Amazon Rainwood declared as sleeping place - hostel). The hostel is located in an indigenous community close to Manaus (communidade Sao Jose). We did a great adventure with piranha fishing, trekking in the jungle with indian hunters and spotting of caiman at a backpacker price. Transportation, Guide, Food, accommodation, everthing was included.
