    One of my favourite hostels. Staff are great and loads of places to chill or be social if you want. Only improvement could be to make more use of TV room downstairs for movie nights. Otherwise loved it

    I LOVED this place! I flew to Tarapoto from Iquitos after spending 7 days there. A fellow traveler recommended El Mural and I owe them for doing so. I had a room to myself with 3 beds as apparently there weren’t many travelers passing through. The bed was very comfortable and I slept with the windows open every night. The art work is lovely on the walls and the top floor with it’s open air views are the perfect place to relax and ponder your travels. I would have stayed longer if I could.

    Located a little away from the plaza de armas but not miles, hostal mural is a peaceful place to stay. The staff are friendly and helpful and I felt that the place had a great energy . The facilities were complete , and we wanted for nothing throughout our stay. I only wish that I had more time to chill out on the roof terrace with its hammocks and vista of the city

    Nice big place with all the facilities you may need. The location is a bit weird but you can find transportation around easily, there are several restaurants at walking distance too. I would definitely return.
