We had an ant infestation in our room overnight but the hostel were lovely about it and moved us to another room, however the same thing happened in our second room.
The guy who runs the place was also very helpful and gave us loads of info about boats to Iquitos.
It would have been nice to have been told the kitchen is locked overnight. We put food in the kitchen for the 12 hour boat ride to Iquitos but at 2am wwhen we had to leave, we couldn't get to it.

... two Mexican friends, took the small boat to Tabatinga and went to the same hostel, Hostel Selva Aventura. It has wifi, new beds, a laundry service, clean bathrooms and a beautiful kitchen for less than US$10/night (18,000 Colombian Pesos); I almost wish I was staying more than one night. The first order of business for our group was get on wifi and catch up with the world. One of the first things I heard was that Joan Rivers died during ...
... wasn’t much to do but have a quick look at the market complete with crazy array of fish we had never seen before. We had a quick squiz at the amazon and at the village on the other bank (500m) called Santa Rosa. Santa Rosa is in Peru and we will be heading there when we return from the World Cup. We soon retreated into the aircon of our hotel room as I had turned back into the sweat monster. We had some lovely local fish for diner and tried the various ...
... the manager - who packed us into his rusty Renault estate to take us to an alternative hotel. At this point we were expecting the worst, especially when the first place he took us too had no rooms.... But our luck had actually turned as we ended up being taken to a much nicer hotel where we had a little private suite for the same price as the basic hotel room we had booked (a deal was done between the two hotels) and it was probably one of ...
... river. I spotted 3 gringos in the plane so I waited for them to share a cab. Well, hum, it was 3 friends from Britanny, ahah, going the other way, to Iquitos in Peru. So we looked for a place together and we spent 2 transit days together. Sloths, Parrots, Toucans having some quality life in this rather virgin nature. This was not the dry season so it was harder to see things in the river, we didn't spot any Anaconda nor Piranha... :(
2 chilled nights, a tour ...
... tree to have a spot of piranha fishing! We didnīt have any success, although one of the others caught one and a sardine. Piranha fishing was frustrating - we could feel them nibbling and tugging at the bait, but they never actually took it in their mouth!
Following the fishing, we went back to town and later went for a few drinks with Sergio and the others from the tour; the end of one of the best (and most authentic) days that we had had on this trip (hence this huge post!).
