“OK if you're on a tight budget...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

We stayed here for one night. We felt pretty uncomfortable here and found it a bit scary (we are probably a bit soft and we did arrive after dark to Iquitos with the taxi driver warning us we should be careful of getting robbed, so all combined maybe gave us a bad impression). If we had stayed here longer or at the end our trip to Iquitos we might have felt differently. It was extremely cheap – we paid about 12 Euros for an ensuite twin room. The place was clean enough but maybe because it was old or maybe because it was tropical it just seemed a bit grotty and worn (and we had a gecko in our room). They don’t speak English so if you don’t have good Spanish it can be difficult to communicate if there is something that you need or want to ask. We don’t speak good Spanish. The staff did try to help us but didn’t seem particularly friendly. We may have found them different if we had been better able to communicate though. The location is very good and convenient.

I stayed in Iquitos for two weeks on a very low budget that is why i am very grateful I found out about this amazing hostel. It has the best location you can imagine. Right next to Plaza de Armas, which has all the night life around it. It offers many different rooms, froom budget dormitory to fine rooms to be more private. It has a nice chillout terase with hammocks. It also has a kitchen to use. And a trip to the jungle can also be aranged with a very friendly native guide. The hostel isn't luxurious, it doesnt have a pool or a fitness center. It gets a little hot in the evening but there are fans to use. I had a very good time there with the friendly staff and all the interesting people I have met there. When I go back to Iquitos I will definetly stay there again.

I was staying at La Casa del Francés in Iquitos for 10 days last August.... I really had a great time whilst I was there...met fabulous people ...experienced the jungle....discovered new sensations.... The hostel has a superb location close to the "malecón " with its amazing night life.
The family running this hostel is really friendly .. They help you everytime you need them to ! The hostel offers guided visits into the jungle and, for this matter, they count on the huge knowledge of a Amazonian jungle native....the experience is unforgetable !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I really do recommend this hotel and , of course, I will repeat it next time I go to Iquitos !!

I spent three and a half months in this hotel. Great ambient, nice moments, fabulous people, cheap and just in the center of the city. They gave us a very clear information about the city and they organized our trip to the jungle...everything was perfect!!!
