“Super friendly option in Iquitos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Having just stayed at The Flying Dog for a couple of nights before a trip into the jungle and a few nights after it´s got to be one of the friendliest hostels I´ve stayed in. All the staff go out of their way to make your stay the best it can be and always greet you with a smile and friendly conversation whatever time of day or night. I stayed in a dorm for 4 people both times (different rooms) and both were clean and enough space for 4 people and all our stuff. Lockers are available in each room (bring your own lock) and the showers were hot with a good amount of pressure! Breakfast is included (toast, butter, jam, eggs, great juice, tea, coffee) and the communal area with computer and TV is used by the guests and the staff alike, which is great to get to know the staff and even challange them to a game of table football. On our final morning we had to get up super early for the boat to Leticia and at 5am one of the staff gave us a wake up call and made sure we made our moto. Everyone speaks really good English as well, which is an added bonus. The only negative is that the internet is pretty slow, but that´s Iquitos in general and to be expected considering the location! Don´t hesitate to book here.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

I found the guys at Flying Dog very friendly and helpful. I had a 4 bed dorm which was clean and spacious. The breakfast is a bit light on (even compared to other Flying Dogs in Peru) and the wifi is slow but it is in the worlds biggest jungle and they are upfront about that so no qualms there. Overall had a great time in Iquitos and at the Flying Dog. Thanks guys. Ps if traveling through Peru ask for a Travelling Card to get discounts at the other Flying Dogs. It all helps!

Great place - convenient location right on the river, good standard of rooms and breakfast but what really makes this place is some of the friendliest and most helpful staff certainly in Peru and probably south america! Nothing too much trouble and if you are there for more than one night you will get invited on trips outings etc. nice dorms and decent rooms.
