This is surely an underated hostel because the price, service, cleanliness(their moto it seems)and close proximity to the Plaza surely would rate it better than a three star. Rooms are very comfortable and spacious as are the new beds. The breakfast(included) is always delicious and filling and has the best coffee in Iquitos! Friendly and courtious service allows you to get all the información you would need to make your visit a memorable one. By the way, I stayed here at least, fifteen weekends.
We stayed at Hostal Macambo for three days/two nights and were well taken care. We slept soundly both nights. Ricardo and Roxana, the owners, went out of their way to serve us fresh delicious Amazonian seasonal fruits for breakfast. That was a dream come true for us! If you want to experience warm hospitality in the Peruvian Amazon region, we highly recommend Hostal Macambo in Iquitos.
I loved my two stays at Hostal Macambo. The staff were so warm and welcoming - they felt like friends by the time I left. The restaurant staff went out of their way to accommodate my diet which I really appreciated. The room was quiet, comfortable with great air conditioning and a wonderful hot shower. It was impeccably cleaned every day. I was able to leave some luggage behind while I went into the jungle which was super helpful. I can't say enough good things about this place - stay here - you won't regret it!
We spent the weekend in Iquitos and Macambo made it so easy for us.. the staff is very kind and the room very comfortable! Original in the details on the foot towels and the bottles of water.. wifi, room service on time, hot water in the shower and the manager always caring about our well being
You can't get a better Hostal for this price! I paid 30 US Dollars for the night and it was as good as a hotel. Very happy with my stay! Comfortable bed and pillows as well as all the amenities you need plus a nice big free breakfast included. The owner is a very sweet hardworking woman who has done a great job with her Hostal.
