We stayed here for few nights and wished it was for longer. The cabañas has everything you need. Is right in the jungle, so is the perfect introduction to the Amazon. 100% recommended. We'll come back for sure.

What a fantastic place this is! If you want to spend a night in the jungle you can get your first feel here, the sounds at night are unforgettable. The cabanas are away one from another and surrounded by beautiful nature. There are no windows (just a net instead) which makes you feel like being outside in the jungle all... More

We stayed in a bungalow at Omshanty for two nights. The place is about 11km out of Leticia - in what can be considered the Amazonic countryside. Enrique, the very nice and friendly owner, has really put his heart into it and his little "jungle village" is just awesome and really beautiful. A river where you can swim is located... More

Omshanty is a fantastic introduction to the Amazon and to Leticia. Settled 11km from Leticia, you must take either the local bus that says KM11, a motorcycle taxi, or a Tuk Tuk or Official Taxi. Tip: The local buses only pick up school students between 11AM and 1PM. They will not pick you up in that time. Omshanty welcomes you... More

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
