Liked: The hostal is near the forest and you can hear interesting noises at night, you can walk around at night and see some insects.Cheap restaurant nearby and indigenous communities

Disliked: I really don't understand what's the hype about Omshanty. It's a cheap hostal that's good but quite far from the centre; buses are every 30mn and up to 6pm. If you're planning to come back after 6pm you can get a moto taxi but that is expensive which beats the purpose of staying in a cheap hostal. We didn't meet Kike who was on holiday, and the guy who was there didn't really sell us the tours they organised.I stayed in a dorm which didn't have a fan which is crazy, Leticia is super hot and humid!I only stayed 1 night then found another hostal in the centre.

Liked: It is worth staying at Omshanty for owner Kike alone. He is a wealth of knowledge, and he helped us immensely in planning our trip around the Amazon, giving us excellent advice on places to go and things to see - a lot of which were off the usual tourist trail.

Disliked: The property is a little way out of Leticia, which makes it a bit difficult to get around, especially since the bus stops quite early in the evening. Other than that it was clean and very well set-up.

Liked: If you want jungle then this is it! Private cabin is huge, very relaxing, fantatstic value for money. Kiki is fantastic, tell him what you want to do and its done, he's full of ideas and suggestions, knows everyone and everything. Very easy. Gum boots and torches provided. Bring lots of repellent though.
