“Good for a few nights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

The room was musty but it was a lot less so than our previous hotel. There was a little cafe for breakfast in the lobby. The room and shower were clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff was very friendly and it was quiet at night. There was a fridge for guests to use. Overall average.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

As I had room reservations, they arranged to pick me up from the airport. A lovely idea. No hot water but, hey, this is the jungle. This truly is a very convenient location. Yes, an on street room is a tad noisy, but it truly conveys the energy of Iquitos. There is a market just outside the door. There is a laundry just across the street where the ladies do an excellent job at a very reasonable price, and excellent restaurants nearby. The rooms are clean and with an attached bath.
Although I have located hotels with hot water since, the service staff here is wonderful and the location too convenient to stray. I will be back.
It is helpful to know a bit of Spanish as the staff speaks that and maybe some Shipibo.

We spent 3 nights at the hostal and were fully statisfied. The rooms are basic, clean and the staff is very friendly. Even if you leave the city for some days (e.g. for an amazonas trail) you can securely store your lugage there w/o any charge, same with valuables which are stored in a safe. The location is perfect with the Plaza de Armas and the waterfront only 1 minute on foot away.

If you are looking for a neat and cheap place, this is the one for you. The single AC room I got had a TV and an attached bathroom. You might need ear plugs at night to keep out the noise from the street. You could eat American or continental breakfast for additional cost. Right at the center of the city and a stone's throw away from the plaza de Armas, you cannot get something better for the price you pay!

If you are looking for a hostel for your stay in Iquitos, El Colibri is as good as it gets. Rooms are very clean, light and come with fan and cable tv (good to drown out the noise from motortaxis if your room backs onto the street). Good price too, and location can not be beat.
