I found this hostel in Lonely Planet and the description matched the reality perfectly. With a heavy backpack it is quite a walk uphill but it took 5 minutes by taxi to get there. It felt as if we arrived in the jungle. The room was simple but comfortable, there were hammocks in the balcony. I liked most enjoying abundant breakfast at a long table - all the guests sharing the meal. I think this was the best breakfast we had in Ecuador: in addition to the usual scrambled eggs, there was yoghurt, muesli, fresh juice, fruit, fresh bread... We went on a jungle tour with a different operator and when we came back, we had to kill several hours. Hostal Pakay hostess was kind enough to let us stay there and we enjoyed delicious dinner. One of the best memories from Ecuador!

We stayed two nights here as a family of four. We loved it! We had the large private room (with 5 beds) and a private bath. This is a great place just out of town. Yes, you can hear from road noise at night, but we slept just fine. Yes, it is a composting toilet, but it didn’t smell at all and our girls got a kick out of “flushing” it with sawdust. The homemade breakfast was excellent and for a few bucks we also ordered dinner there. Tony, the owner, also took us on a great tour. He is the nicest, most laid back, and knowledgeable man we’ve met in Ecuador! We highly recommend this place and his tours!

It feels like you're in a jungle reserve while still being a very reasonable walk away from town. Tony has incredible knowledge of the area. It's a great place to be if you're a kayaker and want to explore the amazing rivers around Tena. They also set up all kinds of tours and the overall vibe was very laid back. Highly recommended!

Very nice, relaxing and friendly place just outside of Tena. Toni and his team make you feel comfortable right from the beginning and after some days you somehow feel like belonging to this place.Relaxing in the hammocks, watching birds in the garden or going on a tour with Toni,there's plenty to do and see.I went kayaking with Toni on Rio Napo which qas really great.Toni is a professional kayak guide who can doubtlessly help you improve your skills.All in all, I can definitely recommend this place + relaxing atmosphere, nice beds, hammocks, beautiful garden with lot's of birds, well organised (kayak) tours, delicious breakfast, outside of Tena but still within walking distance to the center - the main street can be a bit noisy

Pakay feels like an oasis for how close it is to Tena. It's less then $2 to get to the central part of the city. Tony was super helpful. He set us up with a great company for rafting at the last minute, and gave us a stellar recommendation for a hike on our last day which ended up being my favorite thing I did in Ecuador. The private rooms are really nice and comfortable. Check it out!
