    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

    A friendly and clean place, I decided to stay an extra day (private room). It's about a 15 minute walk to the plaza de armas, or a 2 sol taxi ride. The room was quiet and it had a fan that helped cool the room. I was able to get my laundry done (keep in mind that you'll need to hang it on the clothing line to dry). I also got into a bit of an issue with my bank, and one of the staff members was nice enough to help me out, so that was much appreciated. I recommend this hostel.

    El Mural is one of the cleanest hostels I have stayed in, in South America. Nestled in a neighborhood a s/2 motor taxi ride from the Plaza de Tarapoto puts you in a quieter area with less local choices of restaurants. But there are a few and it is near a Mercado. This is not a party hostel but there were lots of friendly folks staying here. The kitchen is well stocked, breakfast consists of toast and instant coffee or tea. WiFi works very well, on-site laundry facilites nominal cost.

    El Mural is in a quiet area of Tarapoto. Nice common area on the rooftop, impressive wall paintings, Kitchen offers a lot of space to cook, sit, shelf for putting food and even free food shelf. BUT !!! kitchen was lacking 2 superimportant tools for any peruvian household: Mixer, for shakes & pressure pot for beans. ;-) For me, that's a must-have. There's a nice market close to the Hostel. Laundry Service was expensive and double the price than outside. Good wifi. I recommend this place.

    Good facilities, but lacking personality! - atmosphere: Was pretty quiet while I was there, with not that many people. - location: a good 15min walk (5min moto taxi) to the centre, which can be scary if walking alone at night! - staff: volunteers there were lovely. No tour agency on site, and the staff tried to be helpful but didn’t know much, so the only information I got re: tours was being pointed to some fliers on the table. - facilities: full kitchen, filtered water, free dyi laundry
