Hostal Shaw, Misahualli & Tena , Ecuador

Hostal Shaw is a friendly hostal on the main square in Mishualli run by the owners of agency Ecoselva, Pepe and Margarita Tapia. A great central base and with a sociable bar/restaurant downstairs, the hostel has over five years experience catering for international tourists and has become a favourite amongst backpackers.

Of course, being connected to a tour agency, there's always plenty of information to hand about jungle tours as well as what there is to see locally and independently.

This is a relaxed and sociable hostel which makes an excellent base for exploring the area, or even just a nice spot to relax while watching the Capuchin monkeys playing in the square!
Hostal Shaw has eight simple but comfortable ensuite rooms sleeping between 2 and 4 people. Room price is $8 per person all year round and includes a fan, private bathroom with hot-water, mosquito net, towels and soap.

There is a sociable restaurant area downstairs where the tour agency office is located and also good value meals and drinks are served throughout the day.

The hostel has an extensive DVD collection and a book exchange for those who prefer to spend some time relaxing. For the more adventurous, there are jungle tours of varying lengths which can be booked directly through the hostel and plenty of information about activities that can be undertaken independently.

The owner is Bilingual and will be happy to welcome you in either Spanish or English.

In the restaurant area, there is also a small shop selling arts and crafts from the local community.
