It is a little out of town and you need to cross a busy road but being away from town meant that it was nice and quiet with fantastic views set in lovely gardens. The owners are really helpful and gave us bus information before we arrived and tips on where to go when we left from Banos. They even made vegan bread and put on a delicious breakfast for us. Our room was very comfortable and we liked their eco friendly approach. We’d highly recommend staying here.

My daughter and I stayed in Tena for 3 nights at the start of a 3 week vacation in Ecuador in April/May 2019. Tony took great care of us from start to finish. He arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport when we landed. The drive to Tena is full of hairpin turns, but we were in good hands as the driver drove carefully and was considerate of other drivers on the road. After a long day, we were happy to settle in to our room at Hostel Pakay. The setting is beautiful, the rooms are large and clean, and there are many places to lounge around in the common areas. On our first day, we went on a waterfall and rappelling tour. The website at the time was minimalist so we just thought we were going for a hike in the rainforest to view a waterfall. The actual excursion was So. Much. More Fun. than we expected. We followed the river, scrambling over rocks, climbing, rappelling, it was gorgeous and challenging. Over the hike back, Tony told us about the plants and critters that could be found in the rainforest. He is an endless source of information. The next day, we did a combined tour visiting an indigenous village, a chocolate farm, and tubing down a river. Tony chooses tours that support the local community and that minimize the ecological impact of those coming to the area. He is truly passionate about both the environment and supporting the people in Tena, so you know that by staying at Hostel Pakay and booking your tours with Tony, your money is helping the region. Tony was a kind and thoughtful host. Knowing my daughter was fascinated by insects and spiders, he made a point of searching the grounds on our last day to find a tarantula since he knew how excited my daughter would be to see one in real life. It was a memorable experience for the both of us! I've already recommended Hostel Pakay to other friends who will be visiting Ecuador, and I will be sure to stay there when I go back to Ecuador. Three nights was definitely not enough time.

Our stay at Hostal Pakay was probably the highlight of our time in Ecuador! The hostal itself is beautiful—well-crafted wood, hammocks overlooking the forest, a nice common space area, and the rooms were great. The owners, Tony and Erin, are committed to minimizing their impact on the environment, and the compost toilets were pretty (really!), and very well-managed. Tony was our guide for two day trips, he is a wealth of knowledge and it’s clear that he has a deep respect for both the land and the indigenous groups of the region. His tours were interesting and fun, but also helped us get a glimpse into the impact that the economic and political climates have had on the rainforest which I appreciated. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the dogs and cats that live there were very cute and friendly, too! We only wished we had more time to explore, learn and relax in Tena! But we hope to be back!!
