I stayed here one night in September 2014. The beds were uncomfortable, there was no hot water and it was dank & dirty. I literally could not wait for morning to arrive so I could leave. It has a great history but that's it. The owners quit caring about this place years ago.

For a short stay in Iquitos I had to choose a well located hostel with a kitchen. The casa del Frances was the perfect match. Even a bit slow the Internet is very convenient, and allow time to relax under the hand made palm roof, chatting with the friendly staff. I will definitely come back here for my next trip...

We stayed here last night, intending to stay for a few nights but left after one. It's another hostel that with a tiny amount of TLC could be lovely. Instead it's dank, dirty and mosquito ridden with dead bugs squashed all over the walls of our room. There's a for sale sign on the front gate so I think this...

Maybe I just caught this place at the wrong time, but I didn't feel very comfortable here. I was stuck in a dirty dorm on the first floor that had 10 or 12 beds, no lockers, not enough fans, and only one single-person bathroom to share with the rest of the floor. Someone's food got stolen, and I ended up...

Service is terrible and have to ask for towels, ask for them to clean the room, and ask for toilet paper. Location is excellent as it is in the tourist area of Iquitos only...

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...

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!!!
