We had the downstairs room which security wise is not great but the owner locked our valuables away. Good breakfast and facilities. Cold showers expected in Iquitos. Organised tour if Belen market which was incredible. Had a TV and social area. Would request upstairs room

After staying at a few different hostels when in Iquitos, this was definitely the best (there's some shockers out there!) - great staff, warm friendly environment and a good breakfast and bed - met some cool people as well

I am very glad I chose to stay at green track hostel during my visit to Iquitos. To start off, the service was amazing. I came to Iquitos knowing hardly any Spanish or anything about the city. The owner Katu and Gart (staff), were both extremely helpfull. I received heaps of info about the best food markets, cheapest local restaurants,... More

This hostel has an ok location (not the best in town, but OK enough) and the staff is very nice and helpful. The breakfast was very good, fresh fruit, a boiled egg and bread. Coffee was not included in the breakfast, we had to pay one sol extra (for instant coffee) which seemed weird. The common area seemed nice, with... More

Guys - Especially for the backpacker on a budget passing through Iquitos, Green Track Hostel is the place to stay. Katoo & Gart went out of their way to make me feel at home and ensure I had knowledge of the goings-on in town as well as quick to make introductions to people who could help me carve out a... More

Thank you so much for the positive review, It is good to find out that some people are happy and they can see the relativity of coast / benefit.

Good location, clean, comfortable beds, delicious breakfast (included in The price) and the best wifi you can find in this town (in a town where Internet is very bad). The best of all is the owner of the hostel, Katoo. He is fluently in all the languages a tourist can ask for. He gladly gives you all the most useful... More

The owner charged us 3 times the amount that we were supposed to pay for one night. Then he got aggressive and threatened us. Horrible rooms and facilities. The only decent part was the wifi. I will never return.

It is very frustrating for us to see reviews like this published on Tripadvisor; Tripadvisor's system of handling blackmail reports has been inefficient and completely ineffective for us. We allowed this guest and his friend to check in for their 3-night reservation without paying the first night, because generally our guests honor their reservations and pay their bills at the...

I really enjoyed my stay at Greentrack. The location was not the best, but it was manageable. They give you a key for the front door, and I always felt safe. There seemed to always be anywhere from 3-10 guests at a time, which is a small enough number that I didn't worry about theft. The hangout/kitchen area in the... More

Hello, thank you for taking the time to submit a review and letting us know where we can improve. Our location was actually a deliberate decision because we wanted to be away from the crowds and noise of the Plaza de Armas but still be within walking distance. There are also many local places to eat around the hostel that... More

I truly can't say enough about Green Track hostel. We had a pretty gnarly jungle excursion through an agency in iquitos, and this hostel an the staff was out saving grace, and redeeming quality for our trip. The owner is knowledgable and passionate about the Amazon, the staff friendly and welcoming. The beds are comfortable, rooms are clean and AC... More

Hi Mandy, Thank you for your review; we're so happy we were able to help you out. Unfortunately your bad experience with that other tour agency is far too common, and it reflects poorly on Iquitos tourism as a whole. We're glad we were able to bring some positivity to your trip.
