This is a great hostel. It's right next to a quiet road that goes through various indiginous areas, but as soon as you walk through the gate you find yourself in the middle of the jungle. There is an impressive amount of flora and fauna right out your doorstep. I stayed in a wooden cabin which functioned as a dormitory.... More

Omshanty is synonymous for an unforgettable jungle experience, clean, cosy & spacious cabins, pure Amazon air, fantastic relax oportunities (if you want to be away from everything for a while.. !!), amazing rainforest walks for as long as you want (ask Kike for Cristobal, awesome jungle guide), anyways - just buy the ticket to Leticia!

I enjoyed staying at Omshanty, I can see that all other reviews here pretty much describe the place/experience pretty well. For me, the riding back and forth to leticia was a bit inconvenient, I ended up moving to a hostel in town which worked out better for me. Yes, you are not going to get the same jungle-nature experience being... More

If you want to trade in traffic noise for the sounds of monkeys, parrots, insects, and who knows what, this is where to spend your nights in the Amazon. Don't expect amenities. Do expect a helpful and trustworthy host who knows the area and will help to arrange any activity you want to do. Do expect the best price for... More

We stayed about a week here and it wasn't enough time! I wish we could have stayed longer. This hostel is located at KM 11 which is probably a 20 minute ride from Parque Santander. I recommend just using the bus. It can get crowded on the way into town but we took the bus with our large backpacks and... More

If you have the right expectations, this is a fantastic place. It is actually ‘in’ the jungle, as distinct from in the pleasant but basically nondescript town of Leticia. You can certainly arrange jungle tours in and from Leticia, but we wanted the experience of going to sleep and waking up in the middle of it all, so we chose... More

My husband and I visited in late June, if you are looking for air conditioning or a bug free visit, don't go to the Amazon. But, if you are looking for an experience you will never forget, Omshanty provides excellent accommodations on the edge of the Amazon in Colombia. Away from the bustle of Leticia the small cabanas are comfortable,... More

I lived in the same community as Omshanty for about 5 weeks and met Enrique the owner one day and subsequently visited him and some of his guests many times after. Every time I went there, it felt like discovering a hidden paradise. Enrique invests a lot of time and energy into this business with, I believe, the guests positive... More

I was surprised by the standard at Omshanty though after reading all of the positive reviews. Perhaps it was only our bungalow but our bungalow was very run down, there was a ripped framed picture hanging in the kitchen, the bathroom sink was mouldy, the mosquito nets on the windows had holes in them, the floor boards were bouncy and...
