The bed was hard, and my room was next to the office so there was some noise in the early evening. However, the room and bathroom were clean, they allowed me to hang out in the common area for a few hours after I checked out, there was free wifi, the sheets and towel were clean, and the price was...

A very basic hostal, clean and comfortable. A nice welcoming and an area outside with a hammock, tables and chairs to sit around. Maybe misses a bit of conviviality and a fresh paint of coat, but definitely a nice place and clean place to stay in!

Stayed there while visiting friends. The first room we had was small and the lighting was poor, but the rates were reasonable and we only stayed there at night and were out and about during the day. We upgraded rooms to one the balcony suites - a bit more expensive but more spacious. The balcony got direct sun so clothing... More

We stayed here for three nights then one more night when we got back from a jungle trip. The owner is a really friendly and laid back guy and let us leave our big backpacks there for three days when we went on the jungle trip. Really nice hostel. Kitchen is a little old but still usable. Bathrooms are clean.... More

It's not a luxury hotel, but it's clean, comfortable, and cheap. Bathrooms are shared, but they are clean and have hot water. There's free wi-fi and a computer you can use in the office if you need to check email or Facebook and don't have a way to do so. The owner is very nice and helpful if you need... More

This hostel is ok. The rooms and bathrooms are clean. There is free internet. It has a kitchen, which is not too clean but it is usable. The beds aren't comfortable. There is a nice outdoor area. However, it was a little uncomfortable to hang out there on a Saturday because the owner's family was there. So it was awkward.... More

Clean and comfortable. It is a great budget option. A great place to meet other boaters I hear, but we were there a bit early and didn't see any. It can be a bit loud. The owner, Juan, is very attentive. There is a private cooking area, but I wish there had been potable water available.

Clean Beds though not so comfy, sort of hot water, open kitchen, good for kayakers and backpackers, nice garden and hammock area, free internet. Try the maito restaurant right across the way for some of the best Amazon fish of your life!

We only stayed there for one night before heading off for a jungle "experience" but this place was good value for the $5 each we payed. The rooms and showers were clean enough, it was quiet (although this was low season), and there was free internet. BUT the rooms aren´t the prettiest and there´s no breakfast or book swaps or...

A Welcome Break is in a good location and there are usually other kayakers around, which is nice if you are boating. The rooms are ok and the beds are clean, not super comfortable though. The bathrooms are shared and were broken most of the time we were there. Make sure if you are in a triple to get a... More
