Property Description

The Hub for travellers of the Amazon

Located between the famous Teatro Amazonas and Palacio Rio Negro, in the old centre of town, just two blocks from the city's central park and one block from the main bus line, Hostel Manaus is the perfect base to explore the unique city of Manaus and to prepare yourself for the mysteries of the surrounding Amazon jungle.

Hostel Manaus is on Rua Lauro Cavalcante, a quiet residential street set back from the noise of the thriving metropolis. Here the weary traveller can recuperate from a long journey, relaxing in the beer garden with fellow backpackers or enjoying the view of the famous Palacio Rio Negro from our famous rooftop patio. Staying at Hostel Manaus gives you a taste of the local Brazilian lifestyle with all the convenience of being close to the action of downtown.

Hostel Manaus is a heritage-listed site, built during the rubber boom of the 19th century. With its high ceilings and chandeliers, it boasts space for forty beds, a communal kitchen and washing facilities. Dormitory rooms have just six beds for added privacy, some with air-conditioning and ensuite bathrooms. Private couples and single rooms are also available.

Hostel Manaus is operated by a Brazilian and is the only hostel in the city centre affiliated with the HOSTELLING INTERNATIONAL group. Also recommended by The Lonely Planet, Footprints travel guide, Rough Guide, Routard, and featured on Discovery Channel as the first youth hostel of the Amazon.

WARNING: Beware of imitations. To make sure you arrive at the ORIGINAL Hostel Manaus, look for the HI symbol on the front door.

At the airport and on the bus, travellers may be approached by tour operators offering 'information' on accommodation and jungle tours. Since Hostel Manaus does not recommend these operators to our guests, they may try to take you elsewhere. Don't be misled by false information. Come and see for yourself why the ORIGINAL Hostel Manaus is the best value backpacker accommodation the city has to offer.

My cab for the airport had arrived and the hostel insisted that I had to take the sheets off the bed myself and get them to the reception desk before I left. This requirement isn't mentioned anywhere forcing me to rush carrying my heavy backpack at the last minute while my cab was waiting downstairs leading to a stressful situation. The locker has a weird bolt that did not fit my lock and would not fit many smaller locks. The beds and social areas are ok.

The staff is supportive and super friendly. The kitchen and the rooms are super clean and comfortable. You feel the local vibe due to the furniture and decoration but still get the international touch. I loved my stay here! One suggestion: open a bar in the Hostel to socialize! That would be the perfect place
