“Everything just perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

From the beginning to the end our stay was excellent. The staff was very helpful, always friendly and caring. The room was perfectly clean and nothing was missing. The banana lodge is located directly above the river with an amazing view and still it is just a 5 min walk to the center of the town with all the restaurants etc. We also really enjoyed the tour into the jungle which was organized by the hotel. ... in general ... we will be back soon.

We flew in to Quito, spent the night, woke up and drove to the Banana Lodge. It's a GREAT little Inn close to town. It is also right on the river which makes for beautiful scenery. Anna; the Inn keeper coordinated a jungle tour for us with Carlos which was wonderful. If you're going to this area I highly recommend the banana lodge and booking a jungle boat tour with Carlos. It is also very affordable compared to some of the other lodging in Misahaulli.

This is a semi-luxurious hostel is just a few minutes from the central park and right on the river. Ana was a great host and willing to help with everything. The beach area on the river was the perfect secluded spot to chill out. The rooms were great; clean and comfortable and a really good value. I'd definitely recommend this place for any type of traveler heading to Misahualli.

Nearby natural jungle surroundings as well as nearby native villages. The Lodge itself is by all means comfortable, with spacy rooms that are very clean, well taken care off, everyday, and with internet access. I enjoyed the friendly advice of both Ana & Eduardo-the owners-on what to do in the region, how to travel, and where to go for a visit to native villages & enjoy a typical meal. The Lodge is strategically located for easy access to travel means to enjoy the entire "jungle region" of Ecuador; either by motor boats (pangas) or by car in an excellent road system well maintained by the Government of Ecuador. I highly recommend the Banana Lodge.

Room Tip: All rooms are of excellent quality, and the owners will get you the best available room.

We stayed 2 nights with our 10 year old daughter. The rooms are new, large and very clean. The beds are very comfortable, and the shower is hot. The breakfast, with home baked fresh bread, fruit, and delicious coffee, was perfect. It is about a 5 to 10 minute walk to the plaza with monkeys. I highly recommend.

We loved our stay at Banana Lodge. Can't believe how cheap it was for the level of room/bathroom/friendliness and overall awesomeness of this place. Definitely highly recommended and the town of Mishuali is so chilled, relaxed and friendly. We felt so welcome and safe and had the best time. Go there and see for yourselves

Room Tip: All much the same - great place

Very clean and spacious. Nice, comfortable rooms. A short well-lit walk on a clean road from city proper. Delicious breakfast and helpful owners. Definitely a relaxing place with easy access to swimming in the river or watching monkeys in the park.
