“Muy Bien/ Very Good”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

It is a very lovely and nice hostel with friendly staffs. There is a home-made swimming pool at the back of the house whereas unfortunately I did not bring my swimming tools. They offer jungle tours as well so you need not book the tour package in advance. The cost on transportation by motocarro is approximately 15 nuevo soles. The interenet is very good as well.

We stayed for 3 nights in a double room. The room was spacious and bed comfortable, all rooms have a fan. The shared bathrooms are very clean. And like already stated in most of the previous reviews this hostel has a pool! The hostel is about a 15 minute walk to the main plaza and waterfront where all the bars and restaurants are located. Very good value for money, would definitely recommend.

What makes this small hotel a delightful "home away from home" is the friendly staff and clean, refreshing swimming pool. Their affiliated Jungle Wolf agency also runs excellent tours deep into the Amazon Jungle - a must-do if you can spare a few days and don't mind "roughing it" a little. The rustic all-wooden lodge is clean, provides superb food and is well protected from mosquitoes and other jungle friends. Heiner was a great guide for me, but other travellers indicated that the others are every bit as good.

We got to Golondrinas unwillingly: we wanted to go to another, much cheaper hostel, but for the first time in our lives got fooled by a taxi driver saying that "the place is closed". Nevertheless, in the end were even happy he did so: for 35 soles we got an incredibly nice private room and facilities and a swimming pool in the backyard, which was very refreshing in the so-hot Iquitos. The place is also relatively small and thus ¨tranquilo¨, and is some 6 blocks away from the city center. Oh and the rooms also have special little ¨roomies¨ just for drying clothing¨ - very handy! I would recommend it to any traveller seeking some comfort for very good value.

Golondrinas in two words "SWIMMING POOL"
yes it sound very superficial, but you must consider that Iquitos it's a really hot and humid, so a swimming pool it's a high light you will only find in big and expensive hotels; but
Golondrinas it's a very simple hostel, the staff is friendly and helpful, the beds are alright, i arrived to Iquitos airport, and took a "mototaxi" direct to the hostel, very cheap.
i was looking forward to stay in the hostel in the way back from the jungle, but there was no beds available, then i stayed only 3 nights before i left to the jungle. Just about 10 minutes from downtown.
i totally recommend it.

I really enjoyed Iquitos in general, I love the heat and the weather and the people! And I also loved the hostal. I slept in the dormitory for 15 Soles per night. I could also use the kitchen with the fridge. Great! And the best thing was, they had a Swimmingpool! Really important in this heat;-) I could sleep prettty good, just not really long because it's already bright @ 6am in the Dormitory Room.

The staff was friendly, the owner as well.

You should really visit Iquitos and if yes, try the Hostal...!

A quiet hostel near the center of Iquitos, with a refreshing swimmingpool and a kitchen you can use. It´s clean and the staff is very nice. And besides that, it´s one of the cheapest hostels in Iquitos. I would also recommend to book a tour in this hostel into the jungle for a couple of days. Just stay in this hostal if you want to hang out and meet other backpackers. (maybe it´s a good idea to make a reservation before you come here)
