Good location, amazing sight. The manager was a bit doggy at the beginning (quite normal in Iquitos), but then I started to talked to him and I realized that in the end he is a good person and his dog is lovely. The room wasn't the best of the comfort and the shower a bit weird, but If I have... More

Watch out the positive comments : at the time I was there, he was offering free nights in exchange of a good comment on tripadvisor or hostel world. Nothing good to say about the place. Dodgy manager, some people got stolen their stuff...don't stay there!

I didn't like it at all. Like other people said, it is dirty and way too loud at night. I didn't feel safe there, and some locals told me that the owner has a bad reputation in town plus because it is so filthy, there are mosquitoes carrying dengue around and to better find another place. I tried to stay... More

Having read some reviews on this side I just have to point out that it's not at all this bad. I stayed there with a friend for 5 days and we were working the nightshift at the bar for the accomodation. The owner IS a bit sketchy, but I think beeing a traveler in the selva you are used to... More

We went to Camiri and it was the worst experience ever. It started with the airport pick-up, which the hostel offered us. I have to admit we didn't ask for the price, but I figured it would be free or at least not overpriced. But we payed 20 Soles for a ride that shoud've cost maybe 10. We only choose... More

My friends and I were excited to arrive at Camiri after hearing about the fun party atmosphere and floating rooms. It turned out to be pretty awful. We originally booked for two nights but left after the first. During our stay, we were the only ones staying a the hostel and were more interested in getting a good night's sleep... More

We arrived a week earlier to Iquitos so got to spend about a week at this incredible place!!!! what an amazing experience!! if you are the finicky room service type, perhaps not for you. But if you are a cool traveler and want to experience how it is living on the river this is THE place to be. Best hostel... More

This hostel is a rickety old shack on the river. Floating hostel, cool - yes. Surrounded by garbage, cool - no. The place is close to land and unfortunately there is a lot of debris in the water. Stop by for one of the night time parties but as far as staying here, there a a lot of better options... More

We arrived at night so we didn't really notice the amazing location at first, but waking up and chillin' on the hammock in the AM on the Amazon River was pretty amazing. The guy running the place was a lil crazy, but it made for a good time. He brought a group out on the town both nights we were... More

Camiri has a great location on the river yet is very close to the centre. The communal area is really nice with lots of tables and chairs to chill out in. However the rooms are in dire need of being cleaned and the whole place needs better maintenance in general. We had to constantly ask them to clean our bathroom... More
