Liked: staff is very friendly, nice lobby and terasse to hang out, excellent location

Disliked: double room was next to the reception (the window goes into the hallway..) so very noisy and what we did not like was the terrible smell of the room, there is a little window high at the other wall (one, that is always open) and we guessed that behind there they have the garbage bins.

Liked: The staff is nice and helps in all kinds of occasions. Due to the fans it's not too hot in the rooms. Towels and water are provided for free. The breakfast is great. It's a simple hostel with comfortable beds.

Disliked: The bathrooms were not completely clean after the use of several persons but it was still usable and acceptable.

26 July 2012 XINWEN would recommend this property

Liked: The staff was really helpful.We made several reservations of day tours through them.Alejandra has helped us a lot and with patience though we made several changes. And they called the tuc tuc or taxi for us,which was quite convenient. Drinking water is offered free and esp,it was quiet at night with no party noise which guarantee some good rest. Very pleasant stay there.

Disliked: The shower is actually opened by the switch above,instead of the one on the front.But people used not to notice that and have to put back on the clothes and go out,asking for why there is no water.There should be a sign indicating the usage of the shower.

09 April 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Friendliness and helpfulness of the staff (though the lack of English skills for a few of them were a little frustrating when we had just arrived and were tired). However, the ladies were sweet and it ended up being quite comical plus with the help of google translate it was fine and there was someone around most of the time who knew English - one reception guy in particular was of brillant help to us. The common areas were cute and quirky and there were places to relax, breakfast/juices/coffee etc. to purchase were yummy and it was in a central location. It was nice that the hostel was on the small side too. Having a TV in the room was a nice luxury.

Disliked: Room in the twin private room was hot due to the weather/being on the uppper floor (so asked for two fans which were promptly obtained for us though one looked like it could be a bit of an electrical risk and was very loud/rattly), toilet door was quite small (so you could hear everything) and there was no shower head - just one jet of water. We found it fine but if you're kidphobic there are a few living at the property (but they are very cute). I dont think there were any lockers or safes offered at the property (though we were in a twin room so it wasnt a big deal for us).

Liked: Cute little place right in the central part of Leticia, breakfast available, clean dorm rooms, friendly staff (but not English speaking), helpful with arranging amazon tours, and the ones the hostel sends out are great value for the money. Overall a fun atmosphere and the perfect place to stay for a short time before or after an amazon tour.

Disliked: Only one bathroom, with the exception of the owners who are not there most of the time staff speak no English, some mix ups with our tour and stuck in the jungle an extra night but didn't seem to be the hostels fault.

Liked: Located near restaurants and port. Big lockers in dorm.
