We stayed at the Amazonas for 6 days in February. It only rained a day and a half and we were still able to do all the great day trips. Janet runs Chachapoyas Travel from this hostal and we made arrangements with Janet to not only see Chachapoyas but also Chiclayo, Trujillo and Tarapoto. She helped us arrange a ride to Yuramaguas to catch the Edwardo boat to Iquitos. Everything was very reasonable including laundry. Chachapoyas is a very nice, safe town and Hostal Amazonas is a handy and relaxing place to stay. Beware that the owner is a great chess player and loves to play guests for a dollar a game. Next door serves a great guinea pig and pisco sour. Good luck on your travel adventures.
