As the hostel is only one block away from the Plaza de Armas it is a great place to stage your stay in Iquitos. The beds are decent, the rooms a little warm. The WiFi is slow and the showers are cold (but hey, you´re in the jungle and it is HOT). The service at the reception is excellent (and... More

I stayed there just one night. You hear the bikes all night long. The pillow was horrible smelly old moisture. I was afraid of using it so I did not. The reception girl didn't get you a lot of attention. Not even a map to get. The cleaners are doing good job.

We stayed there for several days. The room with AC was basic but clean, AC worked OK, had TV with several channels in English, hot shower available but you need to wait for several minutes for the hot water to come when you turn it on. The location is good. The staff was helpful. And the hotel is safe -... More

Our stay at Colibri Hostal was worth it! Excellent location, close to the city centre and main restaurants. Rooms and all the hotel areas are very clean, I could see the staff cleaning at least three times a day, it is quiet at night, so you can have a good rest. The staff is quiet pleasant and friendly. Also great... More

My wife and I have stayed at El Colibri several times. Nothing fancy, but clean, secure and well located 1 block from the Plaza de Armas and one block to the pedestrian only Boardwalk river view and good restaurants...at $20 is a good value.

Pleasant and clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff, and actual hot water (though you have to let the staff know 10 minutes ahead of taking a shower, which makes morning or late-night showers more difficult). We had a great stay, and would definitely return when in Iquitos. Only drawbacks: you can't cook in the kitchen, and there isn't a proper... More

This hostal is in an incredibly great location. It is right near the river, right near Dawn on the Amazon (a great restaurant to eat at by the way), and right near the main plaza. The staff are very friendly but unfortunately do not know much about tours in the area.** The value of the hotel is quite good. We... More

This little hostel has so much going for it, and yet it was disappointing. It is well located, and it has basic, yet decent rooms. When we arrived the room was clean, and everything worked well, though we never had any hot water during our stay. The attention was lacking though: the room wasn't made up during the day, the...

You get what you pay for! Clean room, air conditioning, comfortable bed and quiet location (yet one square far from Plaza de Armas). The location is excellent, one can walk to the Malecon, Main square and travel agencies.

This was my first trip outside of the US. I was pleasantly surprised. We spent most of our days and nights in villages and in the jungle. We spent our first night at this hotel before heading out on our expedition. I had nothing else to compare this hotel to because this was my first night in Peru (other than... More
