El Mural Hostel Reviews

El Mural Hostel is a very quiet and local accommodation located on the edge of the inner city from Tarapoto. The first view of the hostel reveals not much more than a usual hostel without any specials like a book exchange or a pool. In general, the first view shows everything the hostel is in reality, but we did discover a few extra things about it during our two-day stay.

The Location

El Mural Hostel is located slightly differently than the description says -- it's more a twenty-five-minute walk than a ten-minute walk to the main touristic attractions like the main Plaza del Armas. In addition to that, it's very quiet, and besides of some engine sounds from motorbikes, there's nothing noisy that disturbs during the stay (except the heat, but that's a different topic).

Rooms and Bathrooms

The room is mostly clean and consists ether of a four-bed dorm room or of a single-bed private room. The beds are comfortable and the room is also equipped with a chair and a small table, where it's perfectly possible to do your laptop work.

The bathroom consists of a simple shower where you can use cold water only (which isn't a problem at all, because of the temperatures outside) and a simple toilet and a sink including a mirror. In fact it is a bit shameless that the owner went to the room to clean before we arrived to clean; when we entered, the floor as well as the toilet seat were pretty dirty. The hostel provides you with a towel and a piece of soap for free.

Common Spaces

There is exactly one common space equipped with a TV and some magazines where you can relax on simple wooden chairs. Wi-Fi is included and it's fine. We have to emphasize that in its description, the hostel promises a kitchen, which does not exist. We think when you are nice to the owner and promise to clean everything up afterward, he will let you use his own kitchen, which he had to close for public use.


We enjoyed our stay, especially the conversations we had with the owner. Sadly, they speak only Spanish, but they're really nice people and offer you touristic tours for cheaper prices and they'll help you regarding your next visits. They also provide you with a ventilator, which you should really make a use of here, because of the temperatures.
