There aren't many options for cheap lodging in Puerto Maldonado, but this is definitely one of the best. I switched to the Tarantula Hostel after experiencing a night in the Tambopata Hostel and was so happy I made the change - the Tarantula Hostel has beautiful surroundings and is located outside the city center, so you don't have to worry...

We booked our reservation for 7 days, and my son and I were hoping for a wonderful relaxing week in the jungle. However, it didn't turn out that way. We weren't met at the airport as promised, so we took a moto-taxi there. We arrived and the worker was friendly enough. We were the only ones at the hostel that...

I was five nights in the hostel. The place and also the garden is nice. And it has two parrats. Very cool! :-) I slept in a tent in the garden. This was okay for me, because it was cheap. Only the bathroom and the kitchen was not very clean. The trash can in the bathroom was not emptied, but...

Fortunately I found this Tarentula's Hostal, which was the only one to suggest nights in tents, at a good price. The place is really well located, because it...

I picked this hostel sight unseen for a one night stay prior to a 2 week rainforest expedition. I was very happy with the accommodations and the staff. Everything was clean and comfortable. Rooms were well-protected from mosquitos as well. The location is convenient from the airport and access to Puerto Maldonado is easy via taxi or transportation from the...

I'm a young woman traveling in Peru alone and I've been in some sketchy places with sketchy people. But Tarantula Eco Hostel felt like an oasis away from the chaos and sometimes unpleasantness of the city. Ten minutes away from Puerto Maldonado, the hostel is close enough to the action to be convenient but far enough away to be able...
