Our room on the top floor had an amazing view! The owner only charged my mom and I for two persons the first night we were there even though I booked a room for three people for two nights, my girlfriend showed up only for the second night. The rafting down the Jatunyuca River was super fun! The prices for... More

We left the hostel at 22:30 the next... More

We stayed at hostel Limoncocha for four nights. Breakfast was great for a few extra dollars and kept us full through a morning of kayaking. The owner was very nice to take us to the bus station and help us buy tickets. Everything was kept clean although there were some small ants in our room. As others have mentioned the... More

I don't normally write reviews however I was impressed with this well organised and super clean hostel. This hostel was definitely one of the best hostels I stayed at in Central and South America on my one year trip. The showers were hot, the wifi was available all over the building, and it was great value. Well done to Michael... More

We wanted to do some rafting but since my girlfriend feel ill Michael called around to find a group in could join. He even lent me a pair rainproof pants for our jungle... More

Found this place after we'd already checked into another hostel and immediately booked a room for the rest of our stay in Tena. It's only a few blocks from the "main" streets in Tena but has GREAT views and seems much quieter. The beds/baths were clean and comfortable. Hammocks stretched out on the balconies for relaxing. Loved the open-space feel... More

Title sums it up, we tried other places and wouldn't recommend anywhere else. Excellent value for money. We had the best room on the top level with huge views out to Tena and the hills - not to mention the sunsets. Great little kitchen for cooking which is also on the top level with wonderful views and open air space.
