    Really cool hostel a bit outside of the center of Tarapoto which allow the place to be a bit less noisy that another hostel in town. The individual rooms are really nice, bed are comfy and big, hot showers and good space. The staff is chill and smily :) Kitchen is really well equipped (probably one of the best one I had through my trip in Pérou). The rooftop is really nice to chill, do yoga, sports, meet people or eat ! I recommend 10/10

    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.

    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.

    big Hippie- Hostel, it was just a bit sad that the kitchen was quite dirty and it was not that nice cooking there and the staff couldn’t help with information (not with information about ships to Iquitos nor with the Terminal for busses to Yurimaguas or where to get the vaccine)

    What really let it down was cleanliness. The kitchen was the filthiest I’ve ever seen! I saw reviews that it was dirty but thought maybe they were being fussy but WOW it was beyond disgusting! The dish cloths looked like they hadn’t been changed in months so it was hard to even clean up after yourself, bugs everywhere, mouldy food. Such a shame because with a proper clean it would be great, it’s an awesome building with a beautiful rooftop but sadly the poor hygiene ruined it completely.
