Services / Location

A large kitchen and refrigerator is provided for your use and enjoyment. Breakfast for a nominal fee can be provided with 24 hour advance notice, including fresh fruit, yogurt, bread, egg if desired, coffee or tea.  Coffee and tea service is available upon request for a donation to our Cristal Corazon Health Project which provides medicines and school supplies to some native villages we are working with.

A TV is available in a communal area and a variety of DVDs are available for rental. DVD profits are put in the Cristal Corazon Fund.

We are just beginning a book exchange and library so feel free to contribute.

Laundry service is available nearby or in the house. There is also a self service laundry sink here for your use.

Local artisans work is on the walls and some is available for sale. Just ask, we actually have artists who will come show their art to our guests here at the hostel.

Storage of backpacks and luggage is free when you take a trip with Jungle Man Expeditions, EIRL. If you take your tour with someone else, we offer secure storage for a modest donation to the Cristal Corazon fund.


This is a small fund started by a RN to assist a couple of small native villages in the Amazon. We help buy medicines and medical supplies as well as school supplies for the local children. We are hoping in the future to assist in larger ways, so plans are being formulated in how we can best serve. We will be glad to share photos and talk with you about it when you visit.


Whether you come by boat or plane just head for the Plaza de Armas. From the Plaza, go up Napo 3 blocks, the crossroads is Nanay the hostel is ½ block to the right on Nanay, you will see the Cristal Corazon sign. 130 Nanay is between Napo and Nauta, so if you are in a mototaxis or taxi they will have to circle the block as it is one way.

Taxi drivers may try to lead you to another hostel but just insist you wish to come here; there is a commission business in most South America countries so recommendations may not always be based on the merits of the business, but strictly the financial pay off.
