We arrived really late and Gustavo the manager was so nice, he made us feel at home with no hassle. The room we stayed in was cool, like a tree house with decent beds and good ventilation. A great place to relax and feel with nature and a bonus is that town is only a 10 minute walk. I would... More

What's let's this place down is the management...emailed 3 times prior to arrival with no response. Upon arrival at hostel had got reservations all wrong and nearly sent me away before offering 2...

We arrived in Leticia after a week on the boat from Manaus and this place was just what we wanted. Beautiful setting out of the center of town but only a 5-10 min walk. Quiet, with comfortable beds and lots of hammocks. The owner was really helpful with all our questions and trip planning. The price was good and we... More

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...
