La Posada, Misahualli & Tena , Ecuador

A very handy place to base yourself while in Tena, on a quiet side-alley coming off the main shopping street and with views over the river, the hostel has comfortable, economical rooms and a secure, covered patio area which can be used by kayakers to store paddling gear.

The hostel opened in 2002 under Tena resident Guido Guevara as Yutzos 2 – a more economical, backpacker friendly alternative to the next door Yutzos 1 – and changed its name in 2009 to La Posada after a number of people got confused about where they were supposed to be staying. (The two hotels are independent although their owners are related.) Guido, who runs the hostel with his wife Maria Rueda, provides a friendly, attentive welcome and the rooms are kept very clean.
There are 8 rooms in the hostel with a capacity for 21 people. Four rooms overlook the river at the back and four overlook the patio area at the front. Three rooms contain three single beds, three have two single beds and two have a double bed. All rooms have television, telephone and fan, and a private bathroom with hot-water, towels and soap. If one person is staying in a room the cost is $15 per night, and if more than one the cost is $12 per person per night.

Free wifi is provided but you will need to use your own computer. A laundry service is offered at $4 a load. Check out is at 12:00 although luggage can be stored free of charge beyond this time. Both English and Spanish is spoken.

You can enter the hostel with your own key at any time and it is staffed until 11 at night.
How to get there...
Walk north from the bus terminal towards the town centre for five minutes until you get to the busy triangular junction with a gas station. Continue well past the junction and take the first left (12 de Febrero). When you get to the end of this road (in a minute or so) the hostel is opposite.
