This was not like any other hostel I've stayed in. It was more like a jungle lodge, only a fraction of the price. The setting is incredible, there's a lagoon with turtles and enormous fish, and it's surrounded by the sounds of the jungle. The facilities are great, they have a bar area, in which there were generally people drinking... More

Mahatu Guest House is in a great location, a 5-10 minute walk to the main town area, with a huge outside area and good facilities. The best though is the owner, who is always on hand to help and tries his best to make sure everything's sorted for your trip.

My friend and I took a trip to the Amazon after a year living in Bogotá and had an amazing time here. Luisa was a wonderful hostess providing us with loads of information and advice. It actually felt really sad to leave her at the end of the stay. It's an easy walk to the centre and the Amazon without... More

In short words: The best hostel that I stayed in my life! Normally when I travel, I'm looking for the cheapest hostels just for sleeping, and better if also cooking, but when I arrived to Leticia, I and my girlfriend were looking for cheap hostels until we found Mahatu and I thought, come on, worthwhile to pay a bit more...

Five minutes from town on a pond and across from the Brasilian border, this hostel attracts more rugged travelers. Beds are comfortable and clean, but would be nice if the pillows were a bit thicker -- a problem throughout Colombia, I would add. One thing I found that was really weird was that there was an infant child staying in... More

We stayed at Mahatu guesthouse after being recommended from a chap at the airport. We live in the jungle in North Queensland, Australia. Therefore we are well used to all the native bugs & beetles that come with it & know how difficult it can be to keep them out of your kitchen, bathroom & living areas. After all you... More

I stayed there one night while waiting for a friend who came in the next day. The hostel is situated next to a private lake and has a nice patio with a pool (even though I would not have dared to go swimming, neither in the lake nor the pool). Furthermore it seemed to be full of travellers and the... More
