“Great help!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Stayed just one night (on the way from Manaus to Mamiraua) but it was enough to notice great hospitality of owners! All the help in arranging tickets for onward journey and getting me last minute to the port comes highly appreciated!

Stayed here almost 2 days (1 night). Flew in from Manaus and from Tefe took the slow boat back (a great experience!).
The Dutch owner is very helpful arranging things (she helped me a lot sorting the slow boat back) and they also offer nice day trips. I joined on a full day jungle trip and had a great time.
The hostel is at a great location at the lake with great views over it from the restaurant/terras. Some rooms also have these great views (as did mine). The centre with all sorts of shops, restaurants and some sights is just a few minutes walk away.
Breakfast is rather basic, but adequate and enough to get you started.
I would definitely stay here again.

A basic but clean and inexpensive place to stay in Tefe if you are visiting the town or passing through on your way up or down river or on the way to Mamiraua reserve. It is a short walk from the town centre. The two things that really make this a good place to stay are the view of the Lake and Bettine, the host. The view of the Lake is very lovely and a room with a view is well worth the extra cost, though we cannot guarantee that you will see such an amazing lightening storm as we did. Bettine is a very welcoming host and really makes you feel at home. Finally the bread served at breakfast is really excellent.

Room Tip: Pay more for a room with a view

Tefe is not the most wonderful place - a dock and rather sleepy town - but Pousada Multicultura is a gem in this place. Have the room overlooking the lake if available. It's well worth the extra and has fantastic views. If you just want to relax, you can watch the activity on the lake for hours.

Spend time with Bettine and Fernando and their children if you wish. They are a lovely family and will reward you with their thoughtfulness. We spent a day on the lake with them visiting a local community only accessible by boat. It was a very special opportunity to see life in this community as it really is.

This is the place to stay in Tefe! Very reasonably priced and Bettine is a wonderful host who makes you feel at home. She and her husband, Fernando, clearly care deeply for their community and are committed to the Amazon, its people and developing responsible tourism within and around Tefe. The rooms are simple and clean and the location is quiet. And they serve a great breakfast to help you start the day. My wife and I were on our way to the Uacari Lodge on the Mamirua Reserve and decided to spend a full day in Tefe instead of going straight to the reserve. We enjoyed the street food and the outdoor bars along the lake were we had cheap beer and fried fish for dinner. A stop in Tefe affords you the opportunity to get a sense of life in the Amazon.

Best choice in Tefe, but low cost-benefit ratio. If you can go directly to Mamiraua Lodge, one-hour and half far from Tefe, do it. Breakfast and accomodations (bed sheet, toilet paper, towels etc.) are very simple. Excellent river view from the balcony and from the breakfast area, but that's all. In addition, the air conditioner stopped in the middle of the night and, due to the heat in the room, I could not sleep for a while.

If you are looking for clean and comfortable accommodation with friendly and helpful owners who care passionately about Amazonia, then Pousada Multicultura is the place to stay. It is good value, cheerful and Bettine and Fernando are excellent hosts. Staying at Pousada Multicultura will give you a unique insight into life in Tefe and Bettine (who seems to speak all languages) can organise tours, provide transport, tell you where to eat and offer up to date advice on the various travel options up and down the river. Using the pousada as a base before or after visiting Mamiraua is highly recommended. Spending time in Tefe is also recommended if you want to experience a real-life working Amazon town. If you can afford it, stay in the riverfront room - the views are excellent.
