The hostal is clean and quiet and centrally located in town. Plenty of transportation to wherever you want to go. Many restaurants near-by. (At Texas Rose Restaurant do NOT try the French Toast. Its not what you expect. Its not what you want.) The hostal has a bathroom with each room. They have showers. There is hot water BUT be... More

Stayed here late NOV 2013, just after a few days in the jungle - clean room, hot showers, had the 50 Soles room and it was great. Location is excellent, right off the square, right off "boulevard" - it's a great budget option and AC will not matter after you've been in IQT over 48 hours - at least I... More

Stayed here for one night before leaving for a five day jungle trip. When we came back for another two nights, we found out, that our bags have been carefully checked by somebody. We lost about 250U$ out of two Bagpacks, which were stored next to the reception (in service for 24 hours), in a little box with a proper... More

We stayed here back in November before a trip into the jungle. The room was not large but big enough. The fan worked surprisingly well to keep us cool at night despite the heat and humidity.

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.

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.
